Pours a clear mahogany color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, Euro yeast, alcohol, and a hint of roasted malt. Fits the style of a Dopplebock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level and elevated dryness. Tastes of pale malt, sweet malt, Euro yeast, hint of corn, alcohol, hint of nut, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, good appearance, feel, and blend, but adjunct presence diminishes quality.

Initially turned off by the Peroni Brewery and their vile Lager - their Doppelbock (La Rossa) in a bottle via a tulip was shocking pleasant!!

When in need of a doppelbock (a rarity for me - nonetheless) with a great authentic pizza pie on a Friday night - La Rossa is the way to go - beer-wise!!

More brown than red, this doppelbock is thin, lagery-looking in the glass with slight bubbles coming up. Minimal head.

Aroma is malt, maybe some slight dark fruit. Taste is caramel, malt, a nice hint of anise, although the base is basically lager with a heavier hops aspect. At 7.2% the alcohol is invisible, but has more body and flavor than most like-styles. I feel like this is a mass-produced beer leaning towards doppelbock rather than a real example of the style.

It poured a dark color but when held up to light a nice amber color shows. The smell is fruity (cherry) malty it also a white evenly balanced head that fades slightly. The taste is a fruity alcohol taste again I think cherry. The feel is somewhat heavy but still easy to drink. I almost feel like this should be slowly sipped by a fireplace. Overall I was very happy with this one.

Bought a 6-pack $10.69 Tamuras
Dark brown-red color
Malt smell
Heavy mouthfeel
High carbonation
Sweet malt flavors, caramel, hides alcohol well
Overall a nice beer for the style.
