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.

DrnkMcDermott (2870) - 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.

Each swallow stirs up a noticeable amount of carbonation/bubbles in the glass.

Overall, pretty tasty. I’d gladly have another!

ordybill (489) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- I get a ton of malt with a dash of caramel. Not bad. Appearance- A neat looking brew, has a nice reddish tint. Pours a large white head. Taste- A real strong malt and grain flavor, it’s pretty good. Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a smooth finish with a light aftertaste. Overall- A pretty fair beer, I think this would go good with pasta and the next time I am at an Italian restaurant that carries this beer I will give it another try.
