Surprised by the low rating here. This is an excellent European lager and if you think it isn't full of hops/flavour/something else you have no idea. It isn't meant to be. From both tap into 450 ml glass and from 330 ml bottle. A. Golden yellow, moderate carbonation with light frothy head fading quickly to lacing. S. Unsurprisingly, a little grain/malty sweetness. T. follows the nose, but fuller. Dry finish and very drinkable. F. Light, but not too fizzy. O. Good, drinkable and genuine beer.

Poured out of an 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass, this beer pours a clear, medium golden color with some a few streams of little bubbles fairly rapidly and continuously rising to the beer’s surface. Has a white head that’s initially about an inch thick when first poured. Head settles fairly quickly to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass. Narley any lacing. Aromas of some biscuity malt sweetness with a bit of zest and mild hop bitterness. The taste is pretty much the same, with some biscuity malts with slight sweetness and also a bit of grainy zest that’s rounded out with with some fairly mild hop bitterness. Not a bad flavor profile at all overall, and certainly well balanced. It’s just that there’s not a strong enough of an overall flavor profile here for my preference. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. Easy to drink with a clean finish.

Typical euro lager fizzy straw colored pour. Taste mimics the nose. Clean and crisp, bread dough,malty. Touch of bitter and grasa. Mouthfeel is light. Carbonation is high.

I really enjoyed this beer. Easy going down. Very light in color. Flavorful, slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Pairs well with a Mozzarella Cheese Roll with Prosciutto & Basil.

I mean, it was definitely beer! That’s all I can say really. Nothing special but nothing too offensive. Wouldn’t mind it on a hot day but wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again.

Good on a hot day in Rome. Useless pretty much any other time. Italians make fantastic ... wine.

L: brilliant gold permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1/4" fleeting, frothy white cap

S: has a light grainy sweet smell, faint spicy hop aroma, a faint hint of skunk and a clean fermentation character

T: Grainy malt sweetness leads followed by low hop flavor, medium low hop bitterness, and a hint of apple

F: medium light body and the medium high carbonation

O: a mildly flavored international lager that is not outstanding but is drinkable

Wanted to like this, but it's truly disappointing - a lager that tastes like stale, fermented runoff from a storm drain in Rome. It has none of the crisp, bright notes that you'd expect from a standard lager such as Heineken or even PBR. Instead, Peroni has a few discordant surprises up its sleeve, but none of them is pleasant. Not recommended.

I think I had this in the US and it was meh, but in Italy it was much better
Tap at little restaurant, light fizzy head crystal clear
Nose lager malts, little straw, crisp clean lager, faint grassy hop, touch fruity, nice malty aroma
Taste similar, clean crisp lager, soft fruity, straw little bread dough, pretty malty, touch grassy hop late, hint minerality, crisp lager finish, more bread dough
Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb,crisp lager
Overall nice for a hot summer day, not the skunky mess I think we have in the states
