Picked this up in a grocery store last week while in Italy. Gold in color, off-white head. Light toasted grains, very bread-like aroma. Hops are very subdued, but barely lend a bit of pepper. Malt turns sweetish, but it's a welcome sweetness and not cloying. A decent strong lager that's quite drinkable. Cin cin!

Bought in Italy and I had high expectations for this one since it was labeled as a doppio malto but it lacks the strong malty flavor I was looking for. The La Rossa Birra Doppiomalto is much better. The ABV is 6.6%.

2.38/5  rDev -27.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

I would imagine it would be good with Italian, has a doughy sort of pizza base flavour in there, malty rather than hoppy, tends to be a bit sticky and stale on its own though, must have with food.

3.63/5  rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 11.2 oz slender Euro style bottle with a blurb about the beer on the front label and a “best before end” date on the back label.

Appearance: Big bubble meringue-like head that subsides to a rocky lace, bight light golden hue.

Smell: Sweet grainy aroma with a bready back ground and a light floral hop in the nose.

Taste: Moderate body with a slickness to the mouth feel, sweetness bursts from the grain with a fresh cut hay flavour. Very clean palate with a bite of hop bitterness, as soon as the bitterness peaks a handful of grain flavour hits the taste buds hard. Slight herbal hop and more grain in the finish.

Notes: This tastes like slightly bigger Peroni Lager, a quality Euro lager that I would not mind having around here and there. Went well with the pepperoni / sun dried tomato spiked turkey burgers I grilled.
