The better half and I attended a wonderful comedy show last evening at a neat Italian reastaurant in Melrose Park, IL! Chuck Salvo did a tremendous job and made us laugh with ease. In addition, we were with a great group of friends!! The Italian restaurant did have a poor beer selection though. However, I did enjoy the Peroni’s in the bottle….they went with our meal just fine. As with most Euro beer, it was seemingly a classic pilsner style beer. Clear, bubbly, color with white foam head, grainy nose, and a crisp clear taste. I could certainly do a session with this stuff….proved that last night!!! And when I say session….it means the mouthfeel was good enough.

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.
