Poured from a bottle into a clean, clear glass at a rest stop on the side of an Italian highway. This stuff is very much available all over Italy. I think that I saw it in over 150 stores in bottles throughout Italy (I visited 14 cities in 9 days).

A Creamy big head over lager like body.

S Barley malt of some strength, some grains. Inviting, interesting.

T Strong light Ale, very close to lager in taste but with more strength.

M Medium with big ABV, some grains and the malt.

D Good for an ABV of 7.7%.

Not bad selection when in Italy. It is still VERY MUCH available everywhere that I went in Italy.

Bought in Italy [imported from Denmark]. One of the better beers I found in Italy and many locations have it. Not as strong as I thought it would be, smooth, good head, malty overtones.

From my notes 6/11/07 pours a one-finger white head that quickly to a ring, leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Malty hoppy nose. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is slight maltiness and slightly cidery, smooth. €2.80 ($3.84) for a 330ml green bottle from Autogrill Badia Al Pino Ouest, Italy.

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.

O-I would say this is strong beer with lower strong taste.

Bought in Italy in a green bottle. Light to medium golden color, crystal clear. Thin head that didn't last too long. little carbonation. Smell was sort of a skunky maltiness. Starts like a mild lager with a bit of skunkiness and finishes with a stronger maltiness (slightly fruity) and alcohol bite on the middle to back of the tongue. Starts sort of light and finishes strong.

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

330ml bottle

A- Golden to amber in colour. Medium white head that shows very little retention but leaves some lacing

S- Strong caramel malts and some alcoholic notes

T- Caramel malts again and a faint hint of hops, with some sirupy corn notes that remind me of an adjunct lager. Alcohol is quite easily detectable

M- Medium body. A lively carbonation brings some life. Decently warming from it's alcoholic feel

O- A very easy drink and overall a decently enjoyable beer

like everyone else i tried this in italy, in rome. the villa borghese was across the street from my hotel and i'd buy a few bottles from a vendor in the park and throw them in my back pack for later that night. the appearance is good. it has a good head. color is boring transparent gold. taste has some bite to it but you get use to it soon enough. an ok beer that does the job in a pinch. i.e.... your on vacation in rome and good beer is very, very, very hard to find.

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.
