My first Italian beer


So the look of it: very simple, no head what's so ever. No carbonation going out of the glasses. Gold. Color


The smell of it: Remind me of the Heineken same taste. Some corn and some hops



The taste of it: Feel Like the same as the Heineken but more on then watery side. Very light. Very simple. Not too much taste as a lager just the minimum
I think this is the Heineken from Italy


So overall would I recommend it: if u are in Italy and it is the only lager u can have take it. But if u have the choice of other lager or even the Heineken, take those 2. Personally I won t recommend it if I am
In other country

A crisp pale lager, that has a crisp clean and refreshing taste. Smooth, a touch of hop herbal in the finish , no real bitterness.

good when its very cold. as it warms up, it starts to taste bad, just like your average lager.

Here is a lager that kind of surprised me. The golden color is nice, the taste is a little on the bitter side for me, which is why I gave it a lower score. Worth the try in my opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Format: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a stylish macro label.

Appearance: a mid golden-amber colour with decent carbonation across the profile. A finger of thick head slowly drops to a good half-finger. Looks pretty good for a Euro Pale Lager.

Aroma: fairly light on the nose as usual per the style, just some grains and a touch of grass hops.

Taste: unusually for a macro lager, the grass hops come through well here with some decent quality lager grains. Comes across more like a pilsener rather than a lager.

Aftertaste: bitterness from the hops with a slight sweetness from the grains.

Mouth feel: light in body with a decent carbonation to bring those flavours through nicely.

Overall: for me, this was a bit of a diamond in the rough. I had 'Euro Pale' lager night, which I was not looking forward to since it is really not my favourite style. After a bunch of average beers and a bunch of awful beers, this one actually comes across quite refreshing with a subtle and quality flavour profile. Impressive for AU$42 a case. I'll have it again.

Bottle of Birra Moretti European Pale Lager, 4.60%ABV

A respectable European pale lager that comes in a lovely looking bottle. The “Moretti” logo, of a traditional Italian countryman about to enjoy a big frothing glass of beer, stands out indicating that this beer is stylish and eager to be enjoyed.

Appearance is a pale, straw yellow colour that when poured produces a nice thick white head with good retention and with decent lacing. A fine-looking clear lager

The aroma has a rustic smell of lightly toasted barley, and some grassy hops, which gave a very pleasant and balanced smell.

The taste was crisp and clean. having a light honey and mild malt flavour with a fair hop bitter aftertaste at the end.

This beer is easy to drink, a balanced and smooth taste that goes down well. Moretti is a good lager that goes especially well with Italian food (naturally!).

Birra Moretti brewed by Birra Moretti (Heineken), with an ABV of 4.60% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. Birra Moretti is an filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell nice with grains and malts. You also pick up on some sweetness in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste, it is rich with with malts and a mild sweetness. This brew has a nice balance it it, there is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is is nice and clean. This brew is also relishing, Birra Moretti did a nice job with this one. Over all I'm giving Birra Moretti a 4.75 out of 5. I would buy this brew again.

I only drink it cause its made in Italy, which doesn't mean high quality, just that its my heritage. otherwise it would be just a light lager with limited complexity. Cold is best.

Just like Italy's other big beermaker Peroni, this product is merely ok. If you go to Italy, don't bother drinking beer. Have wine instead.
