I saw this a lot in Rome and finally ordered it out of pure curiosity.
Pours a clear golden color, quickly dissipating head and that leaves a thin ring.
The aroma is all about the alcohol. Putting it up to my nose it smells like vodka. There is some cereal grain in the aroma, however, it's mostly overshadowed by the booze.
The taste can be described as a sticky, gooey and sweet cereal grain. The alcohol, again vodka, is all over the place.
The body is medium but as it is tough to get through this one, hard to drink, especially as it warms.
This is like a European malt liquor. The only benefit I can see is if you want a quick cheap buzz as long as it's drunk ice cold. Personally, those are not qualities I seek in a brew.

Light and easy to drink lager, but it's 9%! I would drink it again.
