330ml bottle

A- Transparent, light golden colour with a hint of white head that disappears pretty quickly. The beer leaves some hints of lacing on the glass though. Some carbonation is visible

S- Typical light grainy smell, but decently fresh if compared to other industrial lagers. A slight floral hint from the hops

T- Pretty much what the smell suggested and pretty much the standard for industrial lagers. Crisp, grainy malts with some light floral notes, expecially on the tongue. Maybe a note of corn that vaguely reminds of an adjunct lager. Decently refreshing and overall nicely balanced on the bitter/sweet combination. While most euro pale lagers have an unpleasant metallic bitterness this is not the case with this one

M- Light body and quite watery mouthfeel. Still decently lively due to a nice amount of carbonation that still never gets too arrogant

O- This is a very simple and decently refreshing beer, and it does not have any major flaw. Among industrial pale lagers, it almost feels like a gem

No aroma and very flat, chalky taste. Pale golden in color, moderate head and some stickiness. Not sure if it’s the hardness of the water in Italy, but I can’t get over the dryness of this lager.

Pale straw & clear. Finger sized, bubbly white head that stayed for about 30s then seconds before turning into a soapy lacing around the top.

Several adjuncts including corn, some light grassy hops and a faint bit of grain but nothing off-putting and none of the usual ‘skunk’ aromas.

Average with nothing out of the ordinary here, just a light tasting pale lager with hints of corn, grain and very faint grassy or floral hops. Sweet towards the end.

Pretty light on the palate and smooth as you would expect from this style of beer. The carbonation wastrel excessive which was a bonus and it was easy enough to drink.

Average. It's not great and generally quite bland but it’s not off-putting or undrinkable. The appearance and palate are above average for the style but the taste & smell are not.

This is the 'normal' peroni, not the premium version the nastro azzuro. Bought in Italy (it was cheaper than the Nastro Azzuro) and it comes in a 650ml bottle, like most beers in Italy.

A very pale golden lager with lots of carbonation visible.

I always class macro lager in two types: Grainy smelling ones such as Bud, Miller and the Modelo offerings and the class where this one belongs to including Efes, Nastro Azzuro, Mythos and such. it has a grassy, hoppy smell and some adjunct too. Quite nice for a lager actually.

The taste is mild, bland, grainy and a little sweet. Very easy to drink and this would work well for warm weather. Nothing special.

Very light and watery with quite alot of carbonation.

Not special at all but it is funny that most people don't know this beer while they think that the Nastro Azzuro is the one and only Peroni. But this one is the standard non-'premium' version that is, as far as I know, not sold outside of Italy.

Not much nose, strong taste watery. It's actually very close to water but with a bitter-sweet side unpleasant. The bitterness in the finish is, it, dirty and artificial, which does not give value to the ordinary lager. Persistent non-existent. Not much to put under the tongue, even if we take into account that this is just a classic lager.
