COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Had about six of these beers to chase shots of single malt scotch at the company holiday party at Tutto Mare in Fashion Island so I really can’t remember all the flavor/aroma details. I do recall that it tasted thick, sweet, and coffee/chocolatey and was the best beer available at the restaurant (the Anchor Steam on tap tasted infected). Definitely the finest Moretti product I’ve tasted.

Bottle (at Disney World). Poured a deeper amber color with a smaller sized head. Fruity, malty, and caramel. Not bad considering the location.

SODAK14 (294) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a dark, dark amber color with a small head. Rally easy to drink beer with a malty, sweet taste. Wasn’t sure what to expect but I really enjoyed this brew.

Refreshing and crisp. Nice amber color. Not bad, but nothing too exciting.

ibrubeer (148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle @ WOB, RSW. Light malty aroma. Clear, dark brown color, large off white head. Pretty nice malty flavor. Body is a little light for a dopplebock. Overall, pretty nice, but a little light bodied.

Diabobale (242) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
non il meglio dello stile, ma considerando la commercialità e l’essere italiana, risulta essere comunque una buona birra

Travlr (13511) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2014
This is what I used to drink before I discovered the myriad of really good Italian beers. I liked it because it was maltier than most, and a welcomed change from pale lagers. Nice color as well. But I’ve moved on.

"biscuity sweet, with a dry aftertaste, this is a solid db, and is drinkable enough to go well with certain meals. i’d recommend it to anyone looking to try something new."

330ml can poured in a pint jug Beer hunting in Italy is not an easy task :)... Today, micros like: La Baladin, Panil, Montegioco, Birra del Borgo, etc are really good option if you can find them. The majority (if not all) of the mass production beers are really poor. As usual, half of them were bought by Heineken and the other half by Calrsberg :). The Moretti is Heineken, nevertheless, that’s a mass production brewery that I could call... Fair. They have, at least, some median flavors, like this one, the D’Oro and Doppio Malte. A: Clear amber color with a nice beige head. Not bad retention and some lacings as it disappears S: Caramel malts, basically. T: Caramel malts. Brown sugar (quite molasses). Very sweet upfront. Yeasts. Too light bitterness. M: Medium body and medium to light carbonation D: Not bad [ BA Review @ 9/3/2010 ]
