2.4/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Purchased at a corner market in Rome across from my hotel, poured into a hotel glass:

A - Medium Amber color with thick head.

S - Alcohol pervades the scent.

T - If you can get past the high alcohol taste, it does have some hoppy notes that make it more paletable. Unbalanced however.

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated.

D - Not great.

3.2/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Average in appearance clear filtered, frankly almost Bud like.

smell: Bitter like a pils smell, grainy and not really something I personally want to stick my nose in

taste: Well rounded flavor, tastes a bit sweet with some hoppy notes but overall not bad a nice brew actually.

mouthfeel: Stouter than you would think it is actually nice it sits there long enough to enjoy. A real feast actually.

overall: Really not bad I have seen this exported to Italy before and I must say I really enjoy it over all. Not a #1 but very drinkable

2.56/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Sampled from a 33 cl bottle bought in Italy.

A - The color is an odd brownish gold. Extremely clear. Head is white, wispy and weak. There is some lacing.

S - The aroma is faint and hard to pick up. Very much like any international light lager. I expected some malt or alcohol, based on the alcohol content, but this smells like a Bud light or something similar. Light corn and very faint noble hops; nothing else.

T - Taste is clean at the beginning; some malt and a bit of noble hops with low bitterness. Late in the palate comes a burst of corn. Hops linger in the aftertaste. No yeast or alcohol flavors.

M - Light to moderate body. Light hops bitterness burn. No alcohol warming.

O - A very neutral and forgettable beer. It does not seem to have gained any significant character from being brewed to this high alcohol content.

330ml bottle from local bar in Calabria, Italy. Pours a deep crystal clear golden copper with a medium lasting white head, some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some dark fruit notes, dates as it warms up, with some yeast and alcohol esters. Taste same as aroma with some sweet bitter flavors, and a bit of spicy notes as well. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finishes with some sweet caramel malt, dark fruit, yeast, dates and a lingering sweet alcohol and nutty flavor. Overall nothing really stand out for this brew, an average ale.

Got it from Italy.

A-Dark gold with lots of bubbles. White foam,lasting minute or two.

S-Nothing special,some malts,sweetness and a bit metallic touch.

T/M-Very drinkable,not so strong in the taste or in the head. On the first high carbonation,warm and bitter aftertaste.

Had this one in Torino, Italy. Medium airy white head on top of a clear yellow golden colored beer. Smell of hops, malts, card board and a hint of hay. Taste hops, iron, malts, medium bitter, light sweet, hint of something light fruity. Sharp bitter herby aftertaste. Low carbonation, medium body, tingly mouthfeel and a light watery texture. Not too well balanced and very average at best.

Bottle my folks brought back from Italy

Pale golden yellow colour, just over one finger of dense white head, sticky with some pretty good lace. Smell is malty and bready, fairly earthy with some alcohol, not a whole lot going on here really, smells like euro lager. Taste is biscuity and malty, fairly fruity, under ripe fruit in the finish, some alcohol heat here and there. Light-med carbonation, medium body, decent feel. This isn't a bad beer really, I found the bottle to be to big (660ml) I wouldn't seek this out but would drink it again if it were given to me.
