It goes without saying that the Italians are wine-drinkers and this beer proves it. Nevertheless I did partake of this beer frequently as it is absolutely ubiquitous in Rome and is often the only and/or best choice. The head is fizzy and quickly dissipated to nothing. There was a straw, dried grain flavor throughout with no real detectable hops and very little malty quality. It smells much the same way it tastes. The mouthfeel is light and the drinkability is this beers saving grace. I would certainly choose this beer over a budweiser or anything of that ilk.

The bottle backlog continues to fall in the wake of my decision to eradicate bottles from at least my kitchen and perhaps from my inventory. I am awash in the daggum things and they are standing between me and The CANQuest (TM) and I will not abide it any longer. I purchased this one during my most recent visit to Subs 'n' Six Pax on Columbia Avenue.

From the bottle: "Tradizione e Naturalita dal 1846"; "Birra Superiore".

I popped the cap and began the aggro pour, creating both a pseudo-cascade and forming a brief finger of bone-white head that quickly fell to wisps. Color was a pale lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pleasant Saaz-like grassiness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was odd, grassy, but with a light cheesiness like sharp cheddar. It was not prevalent, but it was noticeable all the same. Finish was light, spritzy, semi-dry, nice on a hot, humid day after some gardening, but there are much better iterations of the style out there.

an OK lager. Typical mass produced taste, nothing special. Bottle looks awesome and refined, but I am sure it is a selling point. Label looks like a fancy water brand. Pours ok with a somewhat skunky smell. Taste is right from the start skunky and is typical of a mainstream, overproduced, less refined beer. Ok, but it has to be cold, or don't even bother
