Pours crystal clear and a faint/light yellow hue.

Dank and quite skunky aroma with notes of toasted malts.

Crisp and a bit of sweetness.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, light.

Overall, a very crushable beer, though there's not much to it.

This has a nice yellow color with a small head, the smell is full of sour grains and a little bitterness. Not a huge presence of hops but it is noticeable. There is a prominent sweetness to this beer which is a little too much. It is smooth going down but it does have a slight metallic aftertaste.

Good overall pilsner. I enjoyed it. Not sure why it's rated so poorly.

Fantastic example of a Euro Pale Lager. I don't know what the other ratings think is wrong. It's a nice crisp lager perfect for sipping on a sidewalk cafe in Rome. Maybe I like it so much because that's where I'm drinking it. It makes me happy.

My favorite summer light lager in Italy growing up, crisp and refreshing, pairs perfectly with grilling chicken or sausages on a charcoal grill and the sweltering Roman heat

Medium yellow color with white cap and lacing.

Moderate aroma of Noble hops with underlying clean grain. Nice floral hit with some sweetness as well.

Tastes are simple and slightly rough. Elements of hops and sweet grain are present but there are some unrefined bitter edges that, while slight, are enough to mar the taste experience.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

It has the elements of a European Lager and follows them fairly well. The perceptible flavors are fairly pleasant but the rough edges throw this on off it's game.

Drank it from the bottle and poured some in a glass. Looks good, clear, golden, nice head. Smelled odd to me, kind of like hay or a feed store. I thought it tasted terrible, like dry dog food soaked in topo chico. My wife thought it tasted good. She described it as "fresh". I guess that goes to show how much of this is subjective. Not for me.
