3.55/5  rDev +25.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light straw color with a minimum of white bubbly head that fades away pretty quickly, leaving a thin layer of lace on top of the beer. Smells slightly sweet and citrusy, with hints of coriander. There's a little noble hop aroma there too. The taste is very clean, very slightly sweet, with a little citrusy hoppy flavor there. Not bad, could do with a little more flavor, though. Mouthfeel is fizzy, but fairly heavy for such a light beer. Overall, it's pretty drinkable, not my favorite, but one of the better Italian beers I've had.

3.16/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium gold body with a nice white head. Thin lacing down the glass.

Aroma: Quite strong malt and sweet grains for a pale lager, and a definite hop presence makes for an unexpected surprise.

Taste: Again, quite malty for the style, with a light fruitiness and honey aspects. Medium-low bitterness in the aftertaste. This one is a bit better than the usual offerings (such as Peroni etc), for one that likes beers that lean towards the malt side.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and medium body. Fairly average.

Drinkability: A good example of a macro lager that can be made pleasant. It was better than I was expecting, and perfect for pairing with the wonderful pizza that I had alongside. It won't set your tastebuds alight, but I would much prefer this than the majority of macro lagers on the market.
