330ml bottle

A- Perfectly transarent golden. A very effervescent one finger white head disappears in the span of a couple of seconds. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Some carbonation is visible

S- A whiff of pilsner-like aroma right after opening the bottle. Cereal/grainy malts base with a touch of herbal noble hops. Very subdued after pouring, almost undetectable

T- Crisp grainy/crackery malts. Herbal/grassy hop notes on both tongue and palate. Maybe the faintest hint of citric fruitiness. Low hop bitterness, even for the style

M- Easy and clean mouthfeel. Low to medium body with medium carbonation. Lively with some pleasant crispness but still decently smooth

O- This is slighlty better than your average industrial lager, with no metallic flavours or excessive carbonation. Not complex or interesting at all, but still enjoyable and refreshing

I picked up this 33 cl clear green bottle from the local supermarket. It's a clear yellow colored liquid, with a thin white head. It leaves a bit of lace. Frankly, this one looks like a typical macro. The smell has a pronounced cereal grain quality, backed with a touch of malt. There's a little corn adjunct and a bit of sulfur. There is not much of a hop aroma, and the hop bitterness is considerably low. It's a clean and relatively crisp lager. Low sweetness, and medium to light in body. There's not much else to say about this one...it's essentially everyday macro-like fare.

Golden yellow, very clean. Compact and white head.
In the smell malt, corn, a somewhat old hop.
The corn is evident in the taste too. Nothing to remember. Hop.
Again some hop in the aftertaste. And corn.
It is a new beer for the 150 years of the brewery. One can expect a lot more.

Oneway bottle 33 cl, green glass....in bavaria they say that any beer coming in green bottles must be shit. But that doesnt matter, i want to check out the beer that our south tyrolian "neighbours" create. Straw colour, very light in the glass.good carbonation, but the foam doesnt last long, and the aroma is a little thin, i take a sip, and another huge one..tastes very crisp, good mouthfeel, and a nice hoppy note, like citrus and green apples, very smooth, good drinking but very light body and therefore, nothing special;but it depend on beer style (euro lagers got to be light, thin and crisp) and even more for what occasion you drink beer: this beer for example could be an alternative to becks and heineken while being an average jack...drinking 3,4 or 8 beers as watching the world cup semi finals.
