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.

Pours copper with little head. Aroma is nutty caramel. Flavor is pretty good malty, nutty and caramel. THen BAM!!! Nothing. No finish or aftertaste. It was just gone. One of the most unbalanced beers I have tried. An even 2.5 rating for half a beer.

Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams lager glass. Appearance: Thick, creamy, long-lasting head. Rich, clear amber color with no particles apparent. Moderate to significant lacing. Each swallow stirs up a noticeable amount of carbonation/bubbles in the glass. Aroma: Sweet and malty Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation Taste: Fairly sweet, bready, malty hints of caramel. Lingering hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue after swallowing. Overall, pretty tasty. I’d gladly have another!
