330ml bottle

A- Transparent, light golden colour with a hint of white head that disappears pretty quickly. The beer leaves some hints of lacing on the glass though. Some carbonation is visible

S- Typical light grainy smell, but decently fresh if compared to other industrial lagers. A slight floral hint from the hops

T- Pretty much what the smell suggested and pretty much the standard for industrial lagers. Crisp, grainy malts with some light floral notes, expecially on the tongue. Maybe a note of corn that vaguely reminds of an adjunct lager. Decently refreshing and overall nicely balanced on the bitter/sweet combination. While most euro pale lagers have an unpleasant metallic bitterness this is not the case with this one

M- Light body and quite watery mouthfeel. Still decently lively due to a nice amount of carbonation that still never gets too arrogant

O- This is a very simple and decently refreshing beer, and it does not have any major flaw. Among industrial pale lagers, it almost feels like a gem

Visiting family in Florida, the in-laws took the crew out for dinner at an Italian chain restaurant. The beer selection was worse than limited; this looked like the best option (When in Rome, right?). Peroni is a good thirst quencher, if nothing else. We were also there during happy hour, so I got a twofer.

The beer was a pale yellow color withe a thin white head. There were a few specks of lace.

Grainy aroma, slight herbal hops.

Not much in the taste. Grainy, a touch of hops.

Inoffensive. Not very good.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Acquired a little while back from a B&M store.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden-amber colour with good carbonation. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of cooked grain with hints of DMS, faint yeast and a twinge of stewed leaves. Slightly sweet. Fairly clean but doesn't whet the appetite.

Tastes of watery, grainy malt with a mild finish. Notes of cooked grain, weak malt, yeast, mild DMS and stewed leaves/overdone veg. A faint bitterness upon swallowing, with a harsh, dry character. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with prickly carbonation and a thin, watery body. Slightly astringent, followed by an acrid aftertaste of stewed leaves, cardboard and grain.

Not particularly nice. It looks pretty good, however the aroma is a non-event and the flavour is weak and plagued by unpleasant off-notes. Average body for the style. Too much grain in the flavour - where is the crisp character and spicy noble hops that distinguish a quality lager? No need to hunt this down; spend your money on something good....

Brilliant pale straw color, with yellow hues. Carbonation is fine in texture. Bright white, moderate head formation with very little retention.

Low grainy malt aroma that is slightly sweet on the nose. Light fruitiness and mild white flowers.

Crisp flavor with mild malt notes. The hops are not really perceptible, but there is enough there to keep the flavor in balance. The finish has a very mild bitterness that is not unpleasant.

A crisp, refreshing mouth feel, that is both very clean and very short.

While not flawed, there is just not much here to hold your interest.
