I happened to drink both bottled and on tap over the years, a dozen times with friends in pizzeria or similar places... Clear golden with fine white head... Aromas of corn, malt, yeats, some light like-fruit substitute... Taste is the same with prevalent malt and a low bitterness until the final where you can feel a little bit of bitter...

I can confirm UCLABrewN84 review.
One of the worst ever tried, you know that anonymous discount beers ?
Very much the same feeling, in short words.
One of my most firm ''Avoid'' recommendations.

Pours a light amber colour with medium carbonation and a small white head. Aromas of malt, cereal & some grass. Tastes of light sweet grainy malt, followed by grass. Mouthfeel is rather plain, while finish is moderate bitter.

Birrifico Angelo Poretti #4 Luppoli

66cl brown bottle poured into a glass, the beer is a dark gold with an off white head and sticky lacing.

Beer has an aroma of grains and floral notes

Taste leads with malts and bagels. There is a bit of spicy hop bitterness and some cereal sweetness in the finish.

Very active carbonation and medium mouth.

It’s a Step above the standard Italian lager and would be an easy beer to pair with food.

660ml bottle from Conad supermarket, Venice (€1.69):
This one was a beer done little to impress me really, there wasn't a whole lot going on with it & it all seemed a bit bland & unexciting. There was quite a basic pale lager taste with some skunk & quite a light body but it didn't go down well or easily & I struggled to finish the bottle in the end, regretting my decision to buy it after only a few sips.

Best before 5/2013.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy off-white head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some chemical fruit-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight nail polish remover flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer with some weird aromas and flavors that make it a chore to drink.

Limpid light yellow color, with a beautiful creamy and compact foam. Good appearance.
In the smell corn, so and so malt, and very scarce hints of hop.
The taste, sadly, is the same. Macro industrial beer, with a lot of corn.
Notheavy, scarce body, very watery.
Corn in the aftertaste, too.
