This is a very pleasant, well-balanced lager with a nice light maltiness and tangy hoppiness that balances the malt and makes for a very refeshing drink. If you like the pale lager style you should try it despite the negative ratings. It is heads and shoulders above the Buds and Millers of the world.

Beer geeks be damned I think this is a very fine euro pils.

Appearance is a bit light but certainly well made with very good head/lacing

Smell is a uniquely sweet pils grain, lovely

Taste is about as nice a summer sessionable beer as I can think of

Mouthfeel a tad thin, but within spec

Overall an enjoyable beer I've been drinking for years

found this at the local grocer and not having tried or knowing it's source decided to try it

poured into a pint glass , good carbonation, 3" head that goes away quickly
served cold around 48° taste of slight hops , rice malt not tasting the barley malt though, this is a bright-beer pilsner style similar to a presidente beer, with a light straw color. finish/mouthfeel not unpleasant, no aftertaste from some afterthoughts in the brewing ..a hot summer day beer after you cut the grass .. a little pricey for what you get , i realise that this is an IN BEV product like becks and a few others this tastes better than the USA Beck's of similar style.

sooo try it not bad, i might bump the rate up to around 3.5 on my review .. .besides it's got a groovy looking bottle you can put up on the shelf with the other one's you've tried

I don't totally see the appeal here, this is moderately better than the standard BMC stuff, but the price does not match the quality, and to be honest, the beer is pedestrian regardless of its price. pours a generic clear fizzy gold, with just an inch of rapidly fading white head. I usually guzzle these from the bottle though. an abundance of pilsner malts cascades the nose, with the adjunct malt sweetness and metallic aromas as well, bittering hops only. the taste matches, malt forward, not a totally corn beer, but far closer than craft offerings. mouthfeel is the best feature here, this one really goes down easy, is only a little filling in great quantity, and actually refreshes pretty well when its cold. the lightness and clean characteristics are appreciated, but the flavors just aren't bold enough to hold my attention. if this was cheaper, I could see it having a role to play in the greater beer world, but it prices itself out of that range, and doesn't back it up with taste, my biggest complaint. I drank a lot of this in Australia, always "borrowing" from my neighbors outside fridge, but revisiting it just has not had the same level of satisfaction for me.

12oz green bottle at fridge temp poured into a pint glass. A few days over the best buy date, but not to worry.

Pours out a clear straw yellow color, similar to that of piss. Lots of streaming carbonation bubbles. Decent head off of the pour, fluffy white, fades to a thin soapy, fairly retentive layer.

Initially it smells quite skunky off of the pour, luckily this doesnt fades once the beer opens up in the glass. Not much aroma. Slightly chalky mineral lager yeast. Maybe a bit of very light, sweet malt.

Sweet cracker like light malt, mineral water lager yeast, a bit chalky.

A bitey, strong carbonation. A bit watery with a light body, maybe not as much as your average American adjunct, but very similar in a lot of ways. The mouthfeel does make very a thirst quenching, refreshing beer.

Not something I'd likely drink again, average at best.

For me this is nostalgia. Remembering days in Italy drinking with friends on rooftops, I am not overwhelmed, but not underwhelmed either. It is as previously stated from other reviews, average at best. Fortunately, after brewing my own and being introduced to a number of awesome brews, I cannot go back to these types of flavorless standards. Yet I can respect that they serve a role and function in the beer world, and for me it is nostalgia. So thank you Peroni.
