This lager goes very well with Italian dish. Pizza margarita for instance really compliments the fruity aftertaste of this very characteristic beer. Unlike many pints that tend to be watery, this is refreshing and could be called a divine Fanta among beers. I hope this will be available for a normal price and in crates then i'll be sure to get it from time to time!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Bright gold appearance with a medium size white head and scant lacing. Vegetal, grainy malt aroma. Crisp, clean, light toast flavors, decently carbonated. Bland, watery palate with a short lived finish. Like countless other homogeneous pale lagers with nothing to differentiate it.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Crystal clear appearance, slightly darker than ripe hay with a cloudy white head.

On the nose, sweet aromas of malt with almost no aroma of adjunct. Drops quickly into a clean, crisp finish.

Tastes gently of bready, biscuity malts, building towards a slightly rounded center. Then drops quickly into a gentle, peppercorn bitterness.

Overall, crips, clean, and refreshing with enough flavor to give the beer some character.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Typical Euro lager, carbonated, light to medium-light mouthfeel, a touch of floral old world hops. Very limited flavor profile but a pleasant toasted “biscuitiness.”

Still, it’s better than many other lagers and it’s crisp. Very good carbonation. This lager—like most others—will not interfere with food flavors but is tasty enough to drink. It’s a macro-lager, not some new-tangled hoppy lager so it’s all good. And the bottle looks distinct compared to most American and Mexican lager bottles.

11.4 ounce embossed bottle into a shaker pint glass. BBD: 6/22/2020. Decent head of foam that lasted a few minutes. No smell at all. Taste was a step above dish water. Mouthfeel is very watery. Overall very poor and not worth the money.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look - Golden, with quite low head. OK lacing.
Smell - Sweet and malty.
Taste - Malty, sweet, slight bitter aftertaste. Quite refreshing when gently chilled.
Feel - Not too deep, but not bad like for the mass produced lager-type beer. Average.
Overall - Decent International lager (one of the better ones). Not "too empty and watery" like some other popular lagers. Shame its lacking a "hop kick" and is not bitter enough. OK for BBQ.

Look: Pours golden with 2 fingers of foamy white head.

Overall this beer earns a C.

330ml brown bottle. Label has best by date of 'AUG2020'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. Skinny finger of white head upon pouring quickly recedes to a partial cap and ring. Leaves a few scattered spots of lacing.
Aroma is scant and yields some bready malts.
Taste shows lager malt and thin sliver of grassy hops. Has a little sweetness. Very short flavor profile.
Thin mouth feel. Crisp. Very good carbonation.
Best when cold, and somewhat refreshing, and a good one to pair with food. This beer will not interfere with the food flavors.

I like the classy looking label artwork. There is no date on the bottle, just a julian code. The pour is golden yellow with a moderate flow of carbonation. The taste is grassy, steamed celery, malts, & it's crisp with a slightly dry finish. It's a decent Euro Pale Lager, not bad at all. Cheers! B

From a bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a finger of fluffy white head. Smells a little skunky at first with grain and herbal/grassy hops. Medium feel. Light malt with a little sweetness and a dry herbal/grassy hop finish. Pretty good for a mass market lager.

Basic Italian euro lager from a can.

Crisp and bubbly feel. Bready and biscuity. A bit grassy. Light bodied. Not a lot going on here. Okay for a euro pils.

Last time I had this was in 2010 in Cape Town. Remember enjoying it then. A good pale lager.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Pale yellow color with a nice white initial head and good lacing. Fruity, grassy smell and taste. Crisp and clean tasting. Outdoor get again.

Got as part of a Father’s Day six pack from my son!

Cerveza clara, con baja carbonatación. En su aroma se huelen notas de cereales y poco más. Al paladar es una cerveza ligeramente amarga, acuosa, con poco para destacar.

Not much taste to this beer, a little bready but not much flavour here. Appearance looks good and not a poor beer just not much to it.

(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.

Crisp, light, CRISP and carbonated. At least it isn't sick or awful, just tasteless, thin and quite bitter. Not much to say about it, it is on the brink of an okay (adjunct type) taste and a boring mediocre. 300 ml was gone quickly so it didn't bother too much.

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.

Sometimes you have to look at what's posted and say, "Screw it, I liked this beer..."

Just comparing it to other lagers, I found it to be as solid as any others that others may find good. The pour provided a nice foam build-up with a touch of lacing, early on; the beer was clear and clean looking. What met my nose was a wheaty smell to go with the malty base, again, finding it quite enjoyable. I found this beer to be light-bodied without being watery like many other lagers out there. The taste had a citrus twang to it that added flavor without having to put the lime in the bottle. Overall, this was a surprise - maybe not the greatest thing out there, but definitely worthy of my "camping beer" category (and just in time to go camping!)

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.

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Pale gold, very short lived, white bubbly head.
Smell: A little bit of malt, a bit of skunk funk, not really impressive
Taste: Slightly bitter, moderate grain bill, with minor hop character. Not a lot of flavor otherwise, at least it doesn't require any thought to drink or induce any guilt if you drink it fast.
Feel: Highly carbonated, lively. Light-medium body that foams up a bit on the palate.
Overall: A wolf in sheep's clothing, one of the "imported" beers that sounds good but is only ok.

flavorless and fizzy perfect beer for the Italian summer. No off flavors or weird sweetness to it. I rate it highly because i think it serves it purpose well.
