look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Si presenta di colore giallo/arancio, con un cappello di schiuma a media/bassa persistenza, di grana fine.
All'olfatto non ci sono troppi sentori, malto, forse un filo di mais, miele, lievi croste di pane e biscotto; in generale, si percepiscono note dolci.
Gusto di malto, parecchio amaro conferito dal luppolo, ma equilibrato; si percepiscono ancora note dolci di miele. Il retrogusto è amaro, ma equilibrato.
Si tratta di una birra non troppo carbonata.
In generale, è una birra lager che merita la sufficienza (sebbene di "deciso" abbia soltanto il nome).

It looks of a nice yellow/orange color, with a head of foam with a medium/low persistency, with a thin grain.
There are not so many aromas: malt, a but of corn, honey, crust of bread and cookies; from a general point of view, sweet aromas are recognizable.
Taste of malt, a lot of bitterness given by the hops, but well balanced; sweet traces of honey are still identifiable. After taste is bitter, but balanced.
It is a beer not so carbonated.
Fron a general perspective, such lager beer deserves the passing mark (although the only "determined" item is the name).

Castello Di Udine S.p.A. "La Decisa"
33 cl brown glass bottle coded "07.2019 P L088 808" (P=Pedavena); sampled on 24 June 2018

On a warm and sunny day while visiting the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta on Torcello Island I decided to stop for a moment and enjoy a beer in the shade. There were many options but "La Decisa" stood out to me.

It poured a clear golden body beneath a short head of bright white foam that held well and left some lacing behind. I only had a plastic glass to drink from so it's hard to tell how good the head retention and lacing might truly be if poured into a "beer clean" glass.

The aroma was basic, lightly sweetish and grainy with some mild hops in the background; what most people would simply call "beer". The flavor however brought those hops forward, giving it a bit more character. I couldn't tell you what variety they were but I'll say they were generally "noble" in character with notes of spiciness, grassiness, and herbs. It was firmly bitter and dry in the finish, and in the mouth it was medium bodied, and fairly crisp and effervescent - overall quite refreshing.

I worry that the atmosphere may have enhanced my enjoyment of the beer, thus leading me to rate it a little higher than it perhaps should be, but in the end I think I've at least come close.

Bought in Venice. Pours pale yellow in color with one inch head, clear. Taste is light pilsner malt, pale malt and grass. Light bodied, slightly bitter with moderate carbonation. Makes for a solid lager. Easy to throw down.

Transparent pale golden appearance with a persistent and thick foam. Very carbonated.
Relatively unimportant smell saved by a surprisingly precise and persistent hoppy taste slowly evolving into a pleasantly dry aftertaste. The beer has a fun fizzly mouthfeel and is surprisingly refreshing.
Overall a very good low-fermentation beer.
Bought it at the supermarket in Trieste (Italy).
