The appearance is a rich clear bright gold with a beautiful pour that produces a great head that is around 2 fingers and lasts for around 5 minutes. Besides that it is all downhill with this beer. The Italians need to step their beer game up because a lot of it isn't very good. This beer is watery and weak and resembles an over priced coors light at best. The aroma is malt, that is it, and it isn't a clean malt smell either. It just falls flat and does nothing else and the taste is the same way.

Technically called G. Menabrea e Figli 35 Top Restaurant Birra Legera Bionda. My cousin picked this up for me from Eataly in NY.

Fizzy white lager head over a pale straw beer. I haven't had a beer this low on the Lovibond scale in awhile Great retention for a lager.

Aroma is macro lager fruity? I don't often drink macro lagers, but when I do I'm pretty sure they smell similar. Mildly husky grain.

Tastes like lemongrass and very watered down malt. It tastes like a 3.5% abv. beer. Mouthfeel is similar to a cream ale. Like a cream ale and Coors Light had a baby and it came out like this.

Not bad. Perfect, refreshing, chugalug beer on a hot Summer day such as this. I know that Italians have cheap, lower abv. table wine that's meant to be shard and passed around during meals. I think this beer is along those same lines.
