Poured from a bottle into a clean, clear glass at a rest stop on the side of an Italian highway. This stuff is very much available all over Italy. I think that I saw it in over 150 stores in bottles throughout Italy (I visited 14 cities in 9 days).

A Creamy big head over lager like body.

S Barley malt of some strength, some grains. Inviting, interesting.

T Strong light Ale, very close to lager in taste but with more strength.

M Medium with big ABV, some grains and the malt.

D Good for an ABV of 7.7%.

Not bad selection when in Italy. It is still VERY MUCH available everywhere that I went in Italy.

Ceres Strong Ale
33 cl. greenish-brown glass, best by 201216

Unfortunately green-brown glass does not protect beer from UV light and my sample was skunked. I don't think it's really worthy of a secondary sample though as the adjunct in it is quite clear. It's malty, but not "malty" with grain; and at just 7.7% the alcohol is noticeable. It's a touch fruity, and what hops are there are quite generic in character, but at least display an overall herbal character. What it has going for it: it's more malty, flavorful, and interesting than the standard Ceres or other basic Danish lagers; and it's nicely balanced. As a basic strong Euro lager it's not bad.

Bought in Italy [imported from Denmark]. One of the better beers I found in Italy and many locations have it. Not as strong as I thought it would be, smooth, good head, malty overtones.

From my notes 6/11/07 pours a one-finger white head that quickly to a ring, leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Malty hoppy nose. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is slight maltiness and slightly cidery, smooth. €2.80 ($3.84) for a 330ml green bottle from Autogrill Badia Al Pino Ouest, Italy.

Got it from Italy.

A-Dark gold with lots of bubbles. White foam,lasting minute or two.

S-Nothing special,some malts,sweetness and a bit metallic touch.

T/M-Very drinkable,not so strong in the taste or in the head. On the first high carbonation,warm and bitter aftertaste.

O-I would say this is strong beer with lower strong taste.
