From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue I:

Part of the "European Sampler" from SABMiller. A big push in marketing by SABMiller with this brand; many are reporting that this is their answer to Inbev's Stella Artois.

Very pale yellow color, strip-filtered clarity with a decent, white fluffy head. Peppery and lemony hop, mild cooked veggies (faint cabbage) and a faint husky grain in the nose. Smooth and crisp with a light body. Bitter herb, cooked veggies and a slight metallic tone to start. Bone-dry palate with a graininess that is borderline astringent. Peppery hop bitterness and more brash grain in the semi-puckering finish.

When in Rome ... uh, find some craft beer to drink. This Euro lager has gone from decent to almost undrinkable over the past several years. Our recommendation is to avoid this beer.

3.15/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Quick spritzy white head that dissipates to almost nothing, pale straw and very clear.

Smell: Not much to the aroma, some faint graininess and that is about it.

Taste: Thin malt, a little light on the hops. Some dextrin sweetness within and lots of pale graininess. Spicy hop in the back with a drying grain effect as well.

Mouthfeel: Nice crispness, light to moderate body and thin throughout.

Drinkability & Notes: Italian macro brew, good to wash down some macaroni and gravy. On its own its just a plain Euro-lager.

3.38/5  rDev +22.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12oz green bottle. Best before end date and batch number stamped on the back.

Appearance: Perfectly pale, clear golden with a fine carbonation that creates a tiny bubbled white lace.

Smell: That unmistakable import Lager aroma ... light sulfur nose with a delicate floral hop aroma and faint malt sweetness.

Taste: Cold, crisp and refreshing from the very first sip. Body is light with a light dextrin-like malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth. Hop flavour is comprised of floral hop flavours and a soft lemon bitterness that tickles the palate with a slight, combined, herbal twang. A mild grain dryness adds to the overall crispness of the beer. Finishes a bit dry with hop leftovers.

Notes: I can almost imagine myself sipping this from a long glass on some Italian beach. A very drinkable and agreeable Lager. Serve cold.

Oh ... and I'm not a big wine drinker, so I always order a beer with my meals. And, I figure if I'm going to eat Italian, I'll drink Italian. Peroni does the job everytime, although it's not something I'd keep in the fridge at home.
