The aroma is standard Euro lager - not much cereal grain, but there's still plenty of pale malt, and only a touch of noble hops. It's quite characterless, though it's superior to BMC by dint of lacking strong cooked veggie/cotton candy notes. It tastes somewhat similar to what the nose indicated, except the adjuncts are rather prevalent. It opens up with pale malts and a touch of corn, while ending with a touch of cotton candy. The feel is intensely fizzy and a bit sweet. If I didn't know better, I'd say it's beer-flavored club soda! And...it's a hair better than Peroni, I guess. BUUUUUUUT, it's a bland macro lager that's priced like SNPA. Despite what the nose hinted, it's no better than a Miller Lite or a Yuengling. Actually, it could be a bit worse! Yikes. I think it's mostly fair to write off Italian macro lagers now...

2.15/5: On the lower end of Euro lagers, which is saying something

I'm rating this beer from Tony's in The Magic Kingdom. Ah Disney. Straw colored brew with little head. Light bread malt and slight hop scent. Decent flavor with some spicy hops to start and a good malty base, no adjunct detected. Has some decent carbonation, otherwise a thin brew. Overall, quite decent.

L: pours brilliant gold with streams of rapidly rising bubbles. It produces a 2" white foam cap that lasts 4 minutes.

S: The aroma starts with low malt aromas, low to medium low hop aromas and a clean fermentation character. Swirling the glass chases off most of the skunk to uncover moderate to moderately low grainy malt flavors, a crisp well attenuated finish, light bread crumb, medium low hop bitterness.

T: The beer achieves a fairly even balance between malt and hop flavors and bitterness and has a fairly neutral after taste.

F: It has medium light body and medium high carbonation.

O: This is a light, refreshing beer with no strong flavors.

The best of Italian pilsner. But why?
A 3 fast fade
as expected with no lace shards
S 3.25 as expected. Watery
T 3.5 better than expected. Lemony. Cleansing scrubbing. A bit of corn grain starchiness.
F. 3.5 clean good finish dry. Tingly. More body than adjunct.
O best of Italian pilsner. But why?

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 6/20/2016. Pours crystal clear pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, corn, biscuit, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a good pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Flavorful with a nice body for the low ABV; never feels thin or watery. A nicely enjoyable offering.
