look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(11.2 oz brown bottle - L'Autentica... poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

L: very very pale brassy colored liquid; fantastic rocky, whipped creamy stand of lasting white foam - huh?! - big crusty bands of lace

S: immediately upon crown removal - skunked?! - maybe not... anyway, once that note fades, the lightly toasty pale malt pokes through, maybe even some cigarette tobacco, herbal/grassy hops, malt syrup... pretty familiar, recognizable pale mass-producer lager aromas

T: malty, but thinly so... subtle peppery spice and phenolic note in the finish... bitterness low but not dull; has sort of radicchio-like flavor/bitter quality... aftertaste dry and mildly straw/grainy, later some floral essence emerges... relatively nice flavors, wanting to be fuller, but perhaps just missing some dimension with the grains

F: despite it not coming across so much on palate, the malt does lend to a very delicately silky texture in the middle, residual film after, while the finish has a certain dryness, but is not bone about it... carbonation is abundant, but has only a miniature sizzle

O: malt liquor-ish, with a bright, spicy crispness... like other Euro pales, more to enjoy than American adj. counterparts... would grab this again, maybe on tap while out to eat

Standard eurpean pale lager. Nothing special. The smell is the most offensive aspect with some adjuncts, some urine, and some light citrus and grass. The taste is typical for style, but cloying in the finish. The feel is fizzy and carbonated. Not worth it

Draft in Rome
Light fizzy head fades slowly decent lacing, streaming bubbles, crystal clear pilsner colour
Nose mild grainy pilsner malt straw, hint of grassy floral hops, light lager and fruity note hint of corn
Taste light, straw, little unhappy mineraly lager notes, mild grassy herbal hops, corn or adjunct unfermentables, soft crisp lager finish
Mouth lighter bod, decent carb

Poured from fridge temp. Pours clear yellow. Very little head. Nose is pine, tree sap, wheat, and some orange. Very mild. Smells watered down. Taste is mild - not really sweet or bitter. Definitely light. Getting some wheat and bready notes. Aftertaste is a bit bitter. Mouthfeel is light and dry. Overall, this is a crisp beer that is worth the $1.80 that I paid. However, I wouldn't pay more.

Pale gold, half inche head disappearibg fast.
Floral, Bready, Malty Nose.
Refreshing wheat and malt, subtle honey at finishing with low carbonation.
Overall, enjoyable on hot summer days or pair with light cuisines like salad, sandwiches, pizza and vongole.

look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Develops a nice honey-hay color with a surprising amount of head retention; starting out at 3 fingers and dolling down to 1/2 after a few minutes.

Aromas of walking through a moldy forest, mixed with some hay and straw in the spare barn after it rained the day before. Quite a bit of vegetal action. Some clean adjunct. Metal.

On the front half, the taste is clean and crisp, with a firm Saaz-like bitterness, fading to pilsner malts...and on the back end and finish it mixes with moldy hay, cooked carrots, and hints of old honey. The more you drink it, the better it gets, but it gave some palate shock on the first sip. Almost spit it out.

Feel is crisp, clean, but has a starchy, chalky finish.

Overall, as much as I hate to admit it, it's hitting the spot. It's really something to drink if your only other choice is Bud Light. Not sure where that situation would crop up, but I definitely won't be having this on purpose again.
