It is basically the Italian Budweiser, or Heineken, or Miller, or (Insert your go to macro lager here). Nothing bad or awful but nothing special either.

What can I say? I like lager beers. This is a fine one. Has everything I like in a lager, and that's more than enough for me to enjoy drinking it.

Normal adjunct beer, no better or worse than your typical macro euro beer like heineken.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours with a fingers worth of white foam that dissipates to a line within a minute. A plethora of bubbles form when poured then become medium in number after 30 seconds. Beer is a pale yellow color. Has aromas of chemicals, bready malts, and more chemicals. Initial taste is of chemicals (not as bad as they smell, though) and bready malts. Malt flavors end rather quickly as the chemical flavors persist and a hint of bitter hop flavor enters. Mouthfeel is very crisp (I suppose this beer could use at least one positive aspect) and clean. Very little dryness.

My favorite beer so I'm biased. Best beer to drink with pizza period.

Smells really good but has a bitter taste and carbonation bite.

A classic lager and somehow evokes its "italian" spirit through being dry and slightly choppy for the style. Best lawnmower beer out there.

I probably wouldn't buy this brew for the house, but in my favorite Italian restaurant in Westmont IL, sitting at the bar with a pizza and listening to a guy cover Sinatra and other greats, Peroni is outstanding. Mildly skunky but overall a very refreshing beer.

I enjoy some macro euro lagers, but this is not one of them. Always have a very skunky taste. It's fairly drinkable but not really enjoyable. Even for a macro, there are plenty of better euro lagers out there

Meh... It's the beer equivalent of having to listen to Giada de Laurentis way over pronounce Italian words...

Quick review for now - this is a top-tier import lager. Looks great, smells better. Taste is everything a lager should be.

Pours a straw yellow with little head. Grassy aroma and taste. Malt backbone and mild hop bite. Crisp and refreshing.
Not a terrible macro lager. I rate it higher than most people here. However, there are of course better choices out there.

Very pale straw color. White foamy 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes. Average legs with almost no visible activity.

Faint aromas and flavors of skunk, corn and citrus. Crisp and sharp taste on the bitter side.

Light body with low carbonation. Very short and faint bitter finish, ending with a light smoky skunky feel.

Overall : Poor craft being too watery and a little stale.

When in Rome, do as Rome does. But I'll drink their wine, rather than this horse piss!

Why do brewers keep putting beer in green bottles? I've never had a green bottle import that didn't taste at least a little skunky. Put that aside and this is an easy drinking, lawn mowing beer. Nothing great, but serves a purpose.

Your average euro lager, slight skunk and plenty of grain. Very beer-y beer. Average, but not bad. Have it on-tap and leave your snobbery at the door.
