3.45/5  rDev +19%
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!).

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.
