A- Golden or light amber with a big two and a half finger white head. Lasts well and leaves just a touch of lacing.
S- Aroma is grainy, a touch of caramel, and just generic sweetness.
T- Very sweet all around. There is caramel, light toast, some biscuit. Just a touch of grassy or floral hops. Could have used just a touch of hops.
M- For a pale lager it's too thick from being undercarbonated.
O- It's an ok lager but it's like it's stuck between being a pale lager or something bigger.

Bottle from a liquor store in melbourne. From notes.

A - Poured medium golden and bright with a two finger white head. Mild carbonation coming up. Small rings of lace and a film of retnention.

S - Grainy, grassy hops, a little corny, sweet honey.

T - Yeast esters, orange, bubblegum, corniness, peach.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body, dry finish.

O/D - Elements of tastiness are there but the element of unpleasant grianiness came through too often. Alright but I wouldn't seek it out.

One taste and this became my favorite beer. I am going out to look for some now. I doubt if I can purchase it around here. I tried it in Europe. This was so much better than the Nastro Azzurro in bottles. I brew my own bee,r as I cannot find anything that is close in taste to two kinds that I make. In short, I give this beer my official "Yummy" rating.

330ml bottle poured in a regular glass. I've had this beer when travelling to my sister's house @ Autogrill - Milan area.

A: Pours a clear reddish amber color forming a modest white head. Small retentation and almost no lacings

S: Sweet caramel in the nose. Candy sugar, malt and bit citrus hops

T: Follows the nose: Sweet upfront, caramel, caramel malts, candy sugar, citrus hops. Mild bitter end. Metallic sensation. In overall, a sweet beer

M: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Sweet mouth sensation and a mild bitter aftertaste

O: No big deal. As expected from a Italian macro. I would not classify it as a Pale Lager, maybe a Strong Euro Lager but reminds a Bock or a Heller Bock too. But definitely too strong and sweet to a Pale Lager

33cl bottle into a Duvel tulip. I bought this on a whim at a British supermarket, thinking that maybe the "doppio malto" on the label meant it was an Italianized Doppelbock or something. Oh, how wrong I was.

A: Clear, bright pale amber body under a finger of noisy, fizzy off-white head. Mediocre retention, no lace. Meh.

S: Muted cereal grains, some fusel alcohol, and that's about it. Maybe some apple. Weak sauce.

T: Perhaps a little better here, as at least it isn't boozy - at least at first. What it is, though, is heavy, unappealing, and boring. Oh, wait. Scratch that part about it not being too boozy. As it warms, it becomes horribly alcohol-forward, to the point where the booze really crowds out all the other grossness. What a bad beer.

M: Thick and sticky for a lager. Not good.

O: No. Just no.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass.

A- Pours a clear pale gold with about 1cm of bubbly head that quickly subsides to nothing. not horrible, but a bit meh.

S- Malty upfront, a whole bunch of sweetness, adjuncty, a touch of hay. nothing really going on as far as hops go. a bit meh.

T- Again a lot of sweetness to begin with, a touch of straw and a fair bit adjuncty. a slight bitterness rounds things out. tastes nicer than it smells, relatively crisp and clean, the alcohol was well hidden, but still really basic.

M- light bodied, and pretty refreshing, some nice carbonation. not too bad, relatively easy drinking.

O- not too bad, but not great. I like it better than the other peroni beers, but still pretty average.

Pours a pale orange with fluffy white head that soon disappears into an unimpressive white ring. Aroma is sweet malt, a little honey and caramel. Thin and actually a little flat on the palate. Little carbonation. Taste is sweet, almost honey caramel malt. A little bitterness that quickly fades into a dry sugary tang, not awful,and very average,with alcohol notes, but a little too sweet for me.
