Birra Moretti La Rossa is a double bock beer produced using high quality 100% malted barley, giving it a rich sweet taste and an intense fragrance of roasted malt. The amber colour that characterizes the beer, comes from kind of malt used in the recipe (malt is dried, roasted barley). Another key ingredients is hops, the variety used is particularly aromatic, giving a characteristic bitter aftertaste and a delicate fragrance to the beer. The Master Brewers advise a service temperature between 10° and 12° C.

boto (1879) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 15, 2004
12oz. bottle: It poured a kind of coppery-amber color. Just a hint of haziness to it. A fairly large head that went to nothing rather rapidly. The nose is a bit bready/fruity/caramel, but a bit weak. I had to give the nose a good snort to tell what was in it. The taste is very malty sweet: definitely some fruits in there also. Some alcohol taste. This is a definite not bad. It might also be the best beer available in some Italian restaurants, which isn't a bad thing!

DrnkMcDermott (2807) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Import bottle. Kicked up a rather tall head when poured into a tall glass. The thick head persisted, leaving rings behind. A dark amber body with almost no carbonation bubbles, but little pinpricks on the tongue. Taste is very sweet, more than malty. Hop profile is mild, but somewhat like a Vienna. Has a pretty good lager finish. ABV is a nice bonus, made me decide "it must be a bock" before I came here to rate it. Definietly go for this if it's in an Italian restaurant.

CEZ (398) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 12, 2004
I don't know... doesn't quite taste like a doppelbock. To me it's more like a Vienna lager with too much alcohol. Deep ruby colour, small head, mostly lasting. Lager aroma. Malty sweet but rather balanced. Dry finish; maybe slightly acidic. No roasted grain or earthy notes detected. Rather boring.

The Etruscan (541) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 2, 2004
Beige weak head. Deep amber color. Aroma is moderately bitter, hoppy and moderately malty with caramel notes. Flavor is balanced too between hoppy and crispy grainy tones, ending in a hoppy and slightly sweet dry finish. Light to medium bodied.

Indra (2624) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Bready, caramel malt aroma, faintly herbal and sugary. Medium-dark amber color, fine but scarce head. Flavor is sweetly malty, full of caramel and lightly toasty, with a small amount of hop spiciness and bitterness towards the finish. Effervescent, lightly acidic mouthfeel, medium-full body. Perhaps not spectacular but very drinkable and reasonably flavorful. Definitely worth another try at some point, and much better than I recall it being.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Dark brown/ruby color with a nice head and average islandic lacing. Aroma is malty with a fruity up frontedness, slight hops come through in the end. The flavor is well balanced and good. I was really surprised at this one, has a very micro taste about it but it is a macro.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Dark reddish amber pour, white head and some lacing. Malty aroma, mostly sweet. Some fruit. Flavors are similar. Sweet malts, fruit and a touch of hops at the finish there with a little bitterness. Medium body.
