Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color beer with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light skunk notes with some grainy notes. Taste is a mix of grainy notes with some skunk notes and a semi sweet finish. Body is full for style with medium carbonation. Not very interesting with some skunk notes.

Hazy golden color with faint activity. Slightly creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of lime, sweet malts, barley, salt, faint skunk, noble hops. Pleasant fresh citrus feel, very sharp, with faint grass and smoky malts. Slick and smooth medium body with crispy and prickly carbonation. Light finish, lingering roasted malts and spicy hops, with fresh citrus. Interesting flavors, a little bold, but well balanced at the same time remaining accessible, although a bit thin. Good freshness for a hot summer day. Overall decent quality craft.

Best before 14/01/17.

Pours a lightly hazy gold body with pure white foam at about 2 fingers. Aroma of sulfur and flavor is grainy bitterness that grates since there is no real flavor to back it up.

Found a bottle in Costa Rica of all places and have thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. It came in a metal topped cork contraption and held the carbonation throughout. Definitely worth another visit.

A good beer from Italy. Really crafted lager beer. I was surprised, I thought it's gonna be a typical euro lager, but no!! This is a really good pale lager beer. And crafted beer! Looks like an american crafted lagers. Italians can do really good beers.

Clear gold, pours a moderate head that give way right away to a thin ring. Th-th-th-that's all folks.

Light hops and sugar in the nose, not much of any real interest. Sweet, unusual identified flavour to finish. Moderate mouth feel, a hint of grassy hops and some bitterness to finish.

Unremarkable, but not offensive.

One of two brews from Amarcord currently available at the Beer Store in Ontario. Neither of them particularly interesting. This is actually the better of the two.

A: light yellowish, not turbid and I can't see any sediment on the bottom of the bottle. low carbonation.

S: slightly malty, and popcorn, no hop aroma at all

T: not very complex, just a little malty, no hops, perhaps a little corn flavors

M: light bodied
