Golden color with lots of head with good retention and leaving laces, pretty good for an adjunct lager.
Aroma of non-malted cereals and floral and grass hops.
Although it has a corn like taste, it has a decent amount of floral hops giving a refreshing taste. Hints of butter, actually a bit distracting. Mildly dry and bitter aftertaste.
Decent for an adjunct lager, good choice of hops with a fair quantity for the style. But it has a low cost benefit in Brazil, should cost less than a Heineken which has a superior taste.

2.2014 best by date. Impressive shelf-life as I purchased this in April of 2013.

I hope Italy has better beer than this.

Appears a very gassy pale yellow, no foam.

Not unpleasant aroma for a fizzy lager, but not inviting either.

Taste of light cereal malt, thin bodied with a light flavor and a corn flake-cereal finish. Utterly forgettable and just as bland from the source (Italy) as imported.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a large, thin patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops and skunk are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that it also has notes of bready malts and a light amount of bitterness. The skunky flavors somewhat dissipate as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink. Although it's not very interesting, the taste is rather good when compared to other beers in the style. It would have been a lot nicer if it didn't have the skunky aromas and flavors.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta love watching Peter O'Toole as Pope Paul III whilst drinking this seemingly Italian beer... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises funky corn, funky wheat, light flowers, and a light layer of dust. The taste brings in more of the same, along with an unfortunate extra bit of dust and dirt. Hm. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet, fluid feel. Overall, this is a pretty weak bit of beer, something I'd hope the burgeoning Italian scene is quick to rebuke.
