Just like you, but different
Brief beer, brief songs, brief maths, an a brief gathering.
A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production

Pale yellow appearance; moderately light bodied; mild bitterness.
Italian beer, what could go wrong? Plus a new cap for the collection jar.
I don’t think there would be any surprises if I now say that on tasting that this tastes like your standard average European Lager type drink. High malt and low hops as a characteristic.
Oh and some of that biscuit thing going on. Nothing unpleasant and at the same time nothing unusual or different.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as a 5 of its things from the thing. It is nothing to write home about, has nothing that sets it apart or aside from similar beers of the style, it’s just easy drinking no frills beer.
The double dip review
Donald Fagen, and the Album “the NightFly” remains a favourite.
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesn’t vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or you’ll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
