McFarland: Fresh bitter smell, malty, Some buttery notes. Dark copper amber color. Watery mouth feel bitterness but not overwelming bitterness blends with malt very nicely, buttery and bready. Not bad

Poured on tap in Torino (Turin) Italy 6 15 09 at the 1870 pub there. Poured into a clean, clear glass.

A Some redness to this lager but not much. Minimal quickly dissapearing head as well.

S Very little smell but there was some alcohol detectable.

T Tasted like a weak amber but strength of alcohol helped the taste profile a little bit (at least you get some alcohol!). Not interesting or very deep at all.

M Thin to moderate, made a bit more significant with the alcohol.

D Fair, not interesting.

Notes: It improved a bit (became softer, more drinkable) was it warmed but not enough.
