A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2012.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear, pale-gold colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that subsides rapidly. Aroma of light, grainy malt with a faint hint of stewed hops and a stale solvent note in the background.

Tastes of light malt with a crisp, dry finish. Subtle notes of grain and stewed hops, accompanied by a stale hint upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and tingly. Slightly astringent, with a faint malt aftertaste.

Pretty clean but bland, as expected. It's a lager produced by Heineken after all. OK for what it is, but I won't be rushing out to buy more.

A- Pours a pale yellow color with half a finger of quickly dying bright white head and no lacing.

S- Smells like an American pale lager with a good whif of corn and maybe a bit of honey.

T- Tastes a lot like an American pale lager with a good taste of corn and sweet malts, and a hint of earthy hops at the back, but not nearly enough to be interesting or balance out the sweetness.

M- Extremely light with the right carbonation level.

O- I think I'll pass on another one of these.

Moretti: At dinner, Maggiano’s Little Italy to be specific, so an Italian beer was a must. Came in a bottle, which is good because I have had some bad experiences with flat beer on tap lately. The Moretti has a very clear golden color in the glass with moderate carbonation. The head is thin and pure white with a subtle aroma of malt. The flavor is lightly sweet and malty with a faint finish of bitter. Very nice overall. I had a second. The Moretti reminded me of Heineken, and as I reviewed the label in more detail, there it was, “brewed by Heineken in xxx, Italy”. It’s different enough from Heineken, but there are similarities. Give this easy drinking beer a try. See what you think.

[poured into an Luck Baldwins 2011 Belgian Fest snifter glass]

B: [11.2 FL OZ/330ml] Unique shape and a presentation that gives off the sense of sophistication. Labels have an adequate amount of information, such as abv, amount, and origin(says brewed and bottled by Heineken, so I can assume what to expect). The label texture is decent, but the cap is quite nice.

A: Pale yellow body with a small carbonated head(fast dissipation) and the lacing is forgettable.

S: Very grassy and skunky with a light lemon citrus.

T: Prominent sweet malt, lemon citrus, and very faint bitterness.

M: Crisp and smooth, Little alcohol presence, med carbonation, and light bodied.

O: This is far from horrible, but there's nothing that stands out. It's just an ok beer. On a hot day I wouldn't mind one or with food(if my choice was limited). The skunky aroma can be distracting. I don't see myself buying this again.

I had this beer for the first time in years and by I was shocked at how it tasted. I use to love this beer, but the more mature your taste buds get, I guess you lose interest in beers like this. The appearance was average, with the yellow straw color. The smell was also average with a bit of malt and a tiny bit of hops. The taste was pretty watery with a tiny bit of earthy taste. The mouthfeel was pretty carbonated, not much else. Overall this is a very boring beer. I would never buy it again.

Clear light straw color with a white head.

Aroma is light on malt with a little hops in the background.

Taste is slightly weaker than the aroma. Mouthfeel is surprisingly medium to full and very smooth. Best part of the beer.

A decent lager, very sessionable.

Birra Moretti is a crystal clear, straw colored beer with a white head that vanishes instantly. It has a funky aroma with a note of grass. There a very slight, soft sweetness that kind of smells like cake. It's pretty light bodied, lively and smooth with a dry finish that leaves the mouth just a touch silty. It's lightly flavored and just a little funky. It tastes grainy and there's a little wooden bitterness at the finish. It's a bit like a Czech pilsner. It's not horrible and pretty refreshing.

Review dated 12/19/2008, from bottle.

Moretti: Italian for "shit." Well not quite, but it is a pretty boring beer over all. Looks like your typical pale colored lager, yellow with a white head. A little better than Budweiser with less adjunk and a little hoppiness. A little metallic on the finish. As a guido I am a little disappointed in my country's beer offerings as of now, but I guess the wine is good.

Had Moretti with my Pizza last night and it wasnt bad....and it wasnt great. Fairly solid Euro lager...much like all the rest. The appearance was golden clear and had decent carbonation, but no real head retention. The smell had some sweetness to it, lil malty, some grain....nothing out of the ordinary. The taste was solid, malt and grain start and clean pallet finish. Was very good with my pizza. The mouthfeel was easy and it certainly could be a session beer.

Pours a clear lightish yellow with a 1 inch puffy white head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Thin broken rings of lace form along the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain and grass notes just like the average Euro pale lager. Taste is of grains, grass, and citrusy flavors. A mild bitterness on the palate after each sip. A good carbonation level makes for a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer with nothing bad but nothing great.

Pours a decent head, looks pretty good overall, kind of like that delicious mug the guy is holding on the label.

Unfortunately, it looks better than it tastes. Which isn't to say it tastes bad or anything, just pretty average. It's creamy than many of its Euro Pale Lager brethren, but I can recall the flavor of Stella and Heineken better than this one (although Heinekens definitely don't taste as good). I wouldn't mind having one of these again, but I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to buy another.

I drank this from a pint glass...

It is a very pale straw color with a soapy white head. The beer is very skunky with hints of apple, raisin and grass. The taste is kind of funky with grains, lemon and a slightly bitter finish. The beer is light with some prickly carbonation and a dry finish. This is just another average Euro lager.
