The most common Italian beer. Nothing to see here...

A- Super heavy carbonation is the key look to this ultra clear, pale yellow colored Euro lager. The head is pure white and doesn't produce much of anything other than some thin patchy foam. Surprisingly, the lacing is not half bad, with some sticky bubbly foam clinging to the glass....it does slowly find it's way back into the beer itself. Very typical cheaper looking lager.

S- Again, this is typical of the style. Skunky, but not nearly as bad as others of this style. There are hints of bread/yeast and some dried barley grain and/or grassy. While the aroma is much better than expected, there is still a hint of corn/rice adjunts. Minimal hop presence, which isn't unexpected and it smells very clean.

T- As the aroma suggested, this is very much a clean brew flavor wise. There is adjunct laden flavors of boiled corn and/or white rice. Lingering in the background are mild flavors of sweet malt and the aforementioned yeasty/bread qualities. Nothing in the hop department....good overall!

M/O- A perfect example of what a clean, crisp lager should be! Thin bodied and plenty of palate scrubbing carbonation make this a great session beer for a club meeting in the evening. It really can be enjoyed by everyone and has more flavor than standard BMC offerings, without the tang of typical Euro lagers. I've bought this before and I'll buy it again.....I like it for what it is and think it's an underrated beer!

Aroma is skunk and bread. The flavor is bread, fruit and a mildly bitter finish.

Bright clear light straw colour. Inch and a half of white head. Few streams of fast bubbles. Some lacing.

Mid grassy hop aroma. Hint of spice - cinnamom. A bit bready.

Very mild taste. I had to take a big gulp to get the mild grassy hops. Corn instead of barley.

Light feel. Watery.

Not really a bad beer but very weak. I would only drink this if it was free which it was. Coupon giveaway outside the LCBO.
