Pours an incredibly pale straw with complete clarity and a very small head. Looks more like a cider than a beer. Almost not colour whatsoever.
Nose shows the classic skunky Euro lager hops. Very little else.
Flavours include some very light grainy malt and euro hops. This is like water.
Incredibly watery body, with carbonation that is way over the top.

This pours a clear pale straw colour. Not enough head to even mention. Very little visible carbonation. It looks dead.

Nose is grains and chemicals. Nothing attractive.

Almost devoid of taste. A little bit fruity at the back and again grains.

Crispness to it. Light bodied and very low carbonation.

Just another boring Euro lager made even more boring by trying to cash in on the stupid craze in Australia for low carb beers. I don't know about carbs but it is definitely low on everything that makes a good beer.

A: Pours a pale straw color with a head that fades quickly with no lacing.

S: Aroma is almost nil with just a bit of grain.

T: Taste is similar with only a bit of grain. No real bitterness but there is a lingering bit of tart at the finish.

F: Light body, with no carbonation or flavor to speak of.

O: Beer is not really worth the effort.

We have a stash of this at work for Friday arvo staffies. I love my workmates, but because of this beer, I opt to go home early instead.

This beer is light yellow in colour, tastes and feels like soda water. It's a light beer, so you won't even be able to drown your sorrowful beer-drinking experience with numbing insobriety.

in many ways I like this better than regular peroni. it is more clean, more crisp, more refreshing, less filling, and just as flavorful. this is a session import I can get behind a little bit, not because its amazing, but because it fills a needed role in the beer world. no off adjunct malt flavors, no residual sugar, this is a very drinkable beer and is great in hot weather out of an ice chest. its also a great post workout brew, when a big ipa or something just doesn't feel right. it works on a few levels, and while falling short of being a great craft beer or anything, it does satisfy in a unique way, and can be consumed in absurd quantities with very little repercussion. for that I have to give it a solid C grade, take it or leave it.
