The Peroni poured a light straw color with a tall white head. The white head faded quickly and did not lace on the glass. The smell was very bitter and not appealing. It actually smelled just like a Heineken. The taste matched the smell; no signs of malt character and a very bitter taste. I do not know what hops are in this beer but they are not pleasant and have a tannin type bite. There was also a corn or rice aftertaste. The beer was very watery and I do not think I could have had more than the one. Not recommended.

12 oz green bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Very little head and no lacing to speak of. Color is a pale watery yellow. Active carbonation streamers.
Smell at first is slightly skunky, but mellows no a bland cereal grain aroma. Taste is a very weak grain flavor.
Mouthfeel is watery and thin.
This is easy to drink just because water is easy to drink.

Clear straw yellow with a brittle white head that quickly dissipates.

Smells like hops, veggies and old rope. Not offensive, but odd. Spritzy mouthfeel from lively carbonation. Very light bodied beer. Tastes awful, like it was brewed in a plastic barrel. Nasty chemical and soap flavours. Feh.

Transparent, yellowy appearance...big, bone-white head, softly settling.

Aroma: "eh, it's beer"...clean and dull, with merest hints of lemon zest and minerals...

Taste: ah! crap! harsh bite at the front...ow! not good! bad beer, bad beer!
Dissipates eventually, but offers no rewards...big, painful, citric sour quality pervades what little flavor exists, and each new sip brings a fresh wince to the face. Not what you want in a beer.

One of the worst experience I've had with a beer. Not quite Crazy Ed's, but close...
Someone please confirm for me, "Nastro Azzurro" is Italian for "Nasty Ass", isn't it?

Not good at all, theheavy aroma of skunk is in the air.

The head was average dissaperd in a timely fashion nothing special.
The taste is bitter sweet with malt and little hops.It's very dry finish is crisp and clean, but mostly I was just happy it was gone.

My first Italian made beer and mabey my last!

Went to bertuchis tonight, had this beer because it was the pairing recommendation with their florentine pizza, I really wish I had not drank this as it was a reminded me of just how bad beer really can be. It was pale urine yellow with a thin head, had a noticeably watery taste with a bitter aftertaste, it didn't have a noticeable aroma, the glass they served it in said blue moon which ironically would have went better with the pizza.

I don't want to do negative reviews on beers because I feel in away every beer is something that somebody made, almost an art, but this is the first year I've ever had that actually made me sick. Two sips into the spear and my stomach went haywire. the sMell was very faint but it actually had and almost fruity aroma. the appearance was nothing more than a light beer.

12 oz bottle. Aroma: Cornflakes with some perfume hops. Taste: The same as aroma. Some hops are present. Appearance: Nothing really to look at. Palate: Watery. Overall: Who would need to import this beer half a way around the world? I would have been better off by ordering Heineken.
