The beer is a bright clear golden yellow color with 1/2" of foam that recedes slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Sipping creates patches of lacing.

The aromas include the malt, a slight fruitiness and some grassy hops.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose and are not particularly strong. There's the malt and grain, a bit of sweetness, a bit of some sort of fruit, and the grassy hops.

The mouth feel is on the light side and has a light crisp and clean character with the ongoing moderate carbonation. The relatively short finish begins as the malt and sweetness fade to leave just a hint of grassy, almost dry, bitterness.

During a visit to Italy this was the best choice available in the hotel where I was staying. I had a few over the course of 5 days while socializing with friends, but probably wouldn't order it again if I had other choices. It's not a bad beer, it's just lightly flavored and not particularly outstanding.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Light yellow with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Light hops and grassy and sweet notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of corn, rice, sugars, mild hops and grassy notes.

Overall: Not a beer I go out of my way for.
