Tried one during a visit to a local Italian place with my dad and sister today. Served in the bottle with a frosted mug, which I poured the beer into a minute or two later.

Yellowish color, clear with lots of bubbles. Almost looked just slightly greenish, but that may have been a trick of the light. Smell was mostly just bready and a bit "beer-y," though I'm guessing the fact that I was in a restaurant at the time and food smells were all around made things harder to distinguish.

Taste... lightly bready, and a noticeable sorta leafy veggie-like flavor. I assume this is from the hops used, since it worked together with the breadiness pretty well and didn't seem out of place. Went well with my salad, cheese sticks, and stuffed shells (and even the bit of my sister's calamari that I tried), which is always a plus for something you drink at a restaurant.

Overall, I liked this pretty well and will probably order it at the local Italian places again in the future.

EDIT: First-impression review is above; I've modified my scores a bit since then after having this a few more times and finding that I don't like it quite as much now as I did then.

Format: a standard 330mL green bottle with a macro Euro label.

Appearance: pours out a clear, light-hued yellow body with a fairly thin white head that drops to a thin cap.

Aroma: quit a light aroma; just some cheap grains with some funk and metallic carbonation. Hooray.

Taste: light pale malts with again the cheap grains and the metallic carbonation. Not too bad, but still a bit cheap.

Aftertaste: a bit dry on the finish with a touch of bitterness.

Mouth feel: light in feel with a standard macro full carbonation. Standard.

Overall: a fairly standard, cheap Euro macro lager, so I guess you get what you pay for. At $52 a case, there are definitely better beers for less.
