look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Malty lightly boozy nose. Lots of tiny ubiquitous bubbles but virtually no head. Malty oil body which starts with a slight fizzy burliness but ends up sticky and boozy.
Some sweetness too.
Not god awful but still a bit of a bottom heavy sloppy mess. Surely the first ever Italian attempt at a malt liquor. Can't see how they could describe this as anything else.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Must say not a bad looking beer. Nice amber orange color. No real head to speak of.

smell: Sweet citrus fragrance not a bad smell. Really kind of inviting

taste: Real citrus taste almost like orange juice. Shocking but definitely not bad

mouthfeel: It was really a good feel stays around just long enough to be njoyed

overall: Not a bad one if you have to have beer in Italy have this one.
