330 ml bottle poured into a tumbler pint glass.
Best by 1/28/23

Very skunky nose with some bright hops coming through. Some skunk comes through in the taste but much less than the nose. Starts with green/floral hops with more prominent malty, corn like, sweetness taking over. Light feel with a bit of mouth coat.
I would say average for style if it was without so much skunk.

On draft at an Italian restaurant in Charlottesville, VA. Clear, effervescent light straw color. Smallish head. Aroma and flavor feature light grain, citrus, and bread. No skunkiness. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Overall a great complement to some great Italian fresh-made pasta.

On tap into a large pint glass (20 ouncer?).
Pale yellow. One finger of white head. Little lacing and retention.
Smells like it should. Bready, grainy.
Taste follows. Very mild skunkiness.
Medium to high carbonation. Bready aftertaste.
Nice beer after a round of golf on a hot day. Maybe not so nice for anything else.

I got a Chilean friend named Peroni. He pushes these suds on me every time I see him. 6 pack at a time. Thankfully I only see him a couple of times a year.
This is your average 5% mouth wash - that’s about it.,.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best before" date on bottle is 01/27/23.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, light yellow color with less than one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, medium carbonation, minimal lacing on the glass.

SMELL: subtle notes of sweet honey and corn bread and just a small amount of that euro skunk I find in many European lagers.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially subtle sweet honey and corn bread, there is a taste of bread crust on the finish, the euro skunk is barely perceptible but it's there.

PALATE: light body and medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is decent for what it is, a light euro lager, you could serve this at a party and it would not offend anyone, people who don't normally like beer would enjoy this, it's bland and inoffensive, you could drink this after mowing the lawn.

On tap at Angelo's in Washington, PA. Happy hour for $3.50..... Had to try it. The description describes Italian passion to detail.....I guess attention to something as this beer is very, very average. Nice color. Some breadiness. Decent carbonation.

On tap at brunch, I know I've had it in the past and disliked, but it was free, so for the sake of review... pours looking like any other lager - not a bad thing. Aroma tells me I won't be enjoying it, many similar characteristics to pilsner with a metallic peppery note dominating. Flavor follows which is worse. Finish is dry and aftertaste is bad.

Drank straight from the bottle.
You know what you're getting with this one, and as long as you know that you're good. Don't expect much but a light, easy drinking Euro Lager. Order a large pie from Patsy's and grab a 6 of Peroni and you're good. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. Also a very good summer quencher.

Smells like a citrusy skunk, similar to a mexican lager. Tastes kind of like a good pilsner that was left outside in the sun for too long. I don’t know how to feel about this beer.

Would I drink this beer again? Yes. Would I buy this beer again? No. It’s just not for me, it has a stale lingering aftertaste that hangs around after every sip. Bought at the beer store in Toronto.

Draft serving. Yellow body with a white foam head. Nice and crisp hoppy flavor with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. A very good beer and it went great with pizza!

Best By :7/22/22 Brewery : Roma

Clear medium gold, with slight, quickly-dissipating white head. Nice looking, but seems a little thin .

Aroma of slightly-sweet , lightly-toasted grain . Helles-like, but lighter. Very slight hint of skunk & cattiness. Probably wouldn't notice if I wasn't reviewing.

Taste is the light sweet grain in the aroma, plus a slight floral note . Towards finish there is a light bitterness , plus a light, dry flavor that dances on the line between "bread crust" and " licking cardboard". It's the latter, often too prevalent, that leads me to dislike so many light lagers. Thankfully this dances on the line, and doesn't go well over it.

Feel is light, of course, with moderate very,very fine, sharp carbonation tingle. Slight dryness on the finish, that lingers a bit, leaving the front of the tongue feeling lightly sanded.

Overall , not bad, and easy-drinking. Better than the overwhelming majority of its ilk. I've had this on draught, and didn't get the skunky or catty aromas, nor any "licking cardboard" sensation. I'd guess those are the effects of being in green bottles. In that case, my ratings would probably be 3.0*/3.75/3.5/4.0/4.0
