Notable hop flavor; moderately bitter; somewhat sweetish notes.
A solidly malty body; Reported all-malt recipe.
Nothing wrong with this beer, and worth a try, if not a case. Since it's an import, you should be able to find better domestic value.

Yellow beer, pale, feint, a mild thin head of white that doesn't retain too well. Aroma, mild grain. Was hoping for some skunk, like the Circle Jerks, "I just want some skunk (skank)."

Taste, mild taste. Lots of carbonation, noble hops, super light body. This beer seems to be all import fees, I dunno why it costs almost $10 a 6 pack. Sweet lager mouthfeel. Maybe its cut with some corn?

12oz can into plastic glass on a flight from Paris to Rome.

A: Clear light golden with two fingers of dense bright white foamy head that slowly faded into lasting collar that held great retention. Rings of soapy lace clung down the sides of the glass.
S: Bright and crisp pale lager nose with spicy and earthy noble hops and crisp, dry, crackery grains. Smells bright, fresh, and very clean. Corn comes through more as the beer warms.
T: Follows the nose with a crisp light pale lager taste of peppery hops and a touch of crackery pale grains. Watery and light overall, but what flavors are there are decent and not offensive. Not overly cereal grain in flavor, but It does have the cornflake thing going on. The can says the ingredients in this are water, malted barely, corn, and hops, so that explains it. I get just a touch of something fruity as well, maybe even banana, probably from the yeast.
M: Very light and watery body but with nice bright carbonation and a crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.
O: Better than some of the macros from the states, but not necessarily something I hope to order again while I'm in Italy. Still, light and crisp, probably easy with a meal, and great on a hot day. More importantly there is nothing offensive in the flavors which can be saying a lot given some of the other beers in this style.

Pours a super basic and flat-looking yellow color, with a pale white head that dissipates nearly immediately. Totally translucent. Almost no scent at all, besides some very basic malt and corn. I'd elaborate a little more on the taste, but there's almost nothing there either. Very sweet and watery, almost none of the flavor you want in a craft beer. Overall, an extremely basic Euro-lager that you should only drink if your only option for buying beer is a convenience store or supermarket.
