Past its best before date.. BBD: 01-2021

Very, very pale with a foamy white head. Big visible carbonation.

Slight hops, slight grain, slight citrus, hay. Not too bad.

A light flavour. Light malts, light hops but quite metallic (could be the hops though). Not much to tell. Decent.
Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Decent lager.

330 mL bottle, with meaningless code stamped on label. how about a date?

appears very pale yellow, with thin white head. clear. like most crappy pale lagers - aroma and taste are muted but flavors of corn and grass are there. watery, bland, grainy, earthy. thin body, fizzy higher carbonation.

overall - no better than the average American adjunct lager. why import this all the way from Italy?

11.2 fl oz, poured into a tall pilsner glass.

I worked both days this weekend, then had the mentally taxing task of helping my sister with Microsoft Excel. It's definitely time for a beer... or eight.

A: I'm surprised; I expected it to be yellow gold in color, but it's actually golden amber. I've been hoodwinked! Kidding. The head is wheat in color, goes to 2 cm with a strong pour, but does not last for even a minute. Nice bubbles as well; it's got a chance.

S: It certainly smells like a Euro Pale Lager - slight hops, slight grass, slight citrus fruit, kind oF lemony, but I expect it to taste more like grapefruit. I'm guardedly optimistic.

T: Moment of truth, everyone... as the Buckinghams sing, it's kind of a drag. It confirms everything I smelled, proportionally oka, but man, it's really watery. I would actually use this to put out a fire, without bothering to look for actual water.

M: After such a crushing disappointment in taste, I have to be fair on mouthfeel. It has the ABV of a session beer, so expectations need to be adjusted. It's light-bodied, well-carbonated, but I can't let go of the wateriness on the palate. It's quite plain.

O: This beer went down in seconds; usually, I want to enjoy drinking a beer, but I wanted this one down so I can try the next one. Not bad for what it is, but there are lots of better choices.
