330ml bottle. Birra Moretti, along with Stella, were the only two beers that I remember seeing in Italy, about 10 years ago, as wine was the beverage focus (rightly) of that particular sojourn. However, when it got just too hot for the local vino rosso da tavola, a cold one of these after walking around all day seemed to hit the spot - I'm sure that's what Heineken is counting on.
This beer pours a clear pale golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, bulbous, and moderately creamy bone-white head, which leaves some broadly broken walls of ice-shelf lace around the glass as it quickly bleeds away.
It smells of gritty, musty pale malt, cornmeal, and mildly skunky, sort of stale-piss, um 'hops'. The taste is more sweet rice/corn graininess, a put-upon pale malt, hints of warm butter, and faint herbal, floral hops.
The carbonation is fairly moderate, the body medium-light in weight, and a bit too tacky to be considered all that smooth. Yet it finishes clean, a wee bit crisp, with a little lingering bitter skunkiness.
In a land with decidedly fewer wine options, and way better beer ones, this is overwhelmingly average. However, it's the only remotely appropriate beer available at my favorite Neapolitan pizza joint, and the recently arrived summer heat again calls for a cold one.

Very "skunky" aroma but pleasant to drink. It has a very refreshing taste. Think Heineken but a little stronger. Nice clear golden color with a frothy head. Aftertaste is a little dry. Low carbonation. All in all, it's a beer that you could definitely sit down and watch a game with. Although, nothing to write home about. It's cheap and easy.
