Peroni Nastro Azzurro pours a haze chilled light gold from a 12oz light green glass bottle with a pry off cap. Head of fine bubbled white foam went to just under two fingers in my 16oz glass beer tumbler. The head lasted just a short time before disappating away to leave a full cap of foam, with slight amounts of lace.

Nose is a fresh and lightly toasted barley malt with some sweet notes along with a touch of damp husk. Palate is a highly carbonated barley malt, that is very crisp, dry, and clean. The bitter of hops is the dominate aftertaste that is followed by the sweet toasted barley malt.

I like this brew from Italy, with an ABV of 5.1% by volume (from the Nastro Azzurro web site). I will be looking for more of this stuff, come Summer in Nebraska.

The bottle backlog continues to fall in the wake of my decision to eradicate bottles from at least my kitchen and perhaps from my inventory. I am awash in the daggum things and they are standing between me and The CANQuest (TM) and I will not abide it any longer. I purchased this one during my most recent visit to Subs 'n' Six Pax on Columbia Avenue.

From the bottle: "Tradizione e Naturalita dal 1846"; "Birra Superiore".

I popped the cap and began the aggro pour, creating both a pseudo-cascade and forming a brief finger of bone-white head that quickly fell to wisps. Color was a pale lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pleasant Saaz-like grassiness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was odd, grassy, but with a light cheesiness like sharp cheddar. It was not prevalent, but it was noticeable all the same. Finish was light, spritzy, semi-dry, nice on a hot, humid day after some gardening, but there are much better iterations of the style out there.

an OK lager. Typical mass produced taste, nothing special. Bottle looks awesome and refined, but I am sure it is a selling point. Label looks like a fancy water brand. Pours ok with a somewhat skunky smell. Taste is right from the start skunky and is typical of a mainstream, overproduced, less refined beer. Ok, but it has to be cold, or don't even bother
