12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger that reduced quickly to nothing. It is a golden straw yellow color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready and sweet pale malts with some mild grassy hops. Nothing extraordinary and traditional skunky aroma found in most green bottled Euro lagers.

Taste: Yup, same as what I smelled with a little bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, chewy, refreshing, medium carbonation, and medium bodied

Overall: Not sure which euro lager stands out from the rest of them, but this one is similar with others.

Fingernail thin layer of white foam rests on top. Pale golden colored. A bit of lager yeast/well water and saltine cracker aroma. Biscuity malt flavor and some very mild buttering hop flavor. Extremely light and perhaps a touch too thin and crisp on the palate.

Sometimes you come across a good Italian beer and sometime you find something that's not quite up to par...this one just didn't tingle the toes.

The beer does look great out-of-the-bottle, but that's pretty much it. It was mostly a "spilled beer in the air" scent with a hoppy flavor and nothing else. Too much carbonation for my liking and I gave it some sympathy points due to its coloring. I think I've had Peroni offerings before, but this one isn't one of their top-shelf models.

This seems to be a popular choice for lager drinkers that want something a bit more upmarket than the standard drinks, but not too adventurous.

Bought a pack of 4 330ml bottles, poured into a half pint Stella glass.

The smell is very indistinct and indeed does not linger, having dissapeared in about half a second upon smelling.

The taste and appearence is standard Euro lager.

When I visited Italy this was one of only a few beers widely available and as such I built up a bit of a taste for it. In bottle form however, there is nothing distinct about it.

Still, it's not bad as per se. Easily drinkable, but will not become one of my choice lagers.
