1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2006 From my notes, March ’05. Pale gold color with a small white head. Grainy, bittersweet aroma. Tastes bitter, nothing else challenging the bitter flavor. A bit metallic too, like nickel. Dry crisp finish. Not a thing to get again.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Poured from the bottle, a pale yellow (aka BuckeyeBoy’s "pee colour") with an unappealing frothy white head. A very strong metallic aroma - maybe a hint of lemon. A strong sharp metallic taste as well along with a fizzy mouthfeel. Absolutely terrible.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 0.66l bottle courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!)
This poured a pale golden colour with a medium sized fluffy but thick white head that went away at a medium pace. The nose is bad... Bad dusty malt with some weak skunkiness...ugh. The taste is watery, so smooth I guess, some ok maltiness, but the big (for a macro pale lager) but crude hopiness dominates the end and the (long) aftertaste. Could be worse, but still far from good.

Pretty underwhelming. Entirely forgettable. As pale lagers go, I would probably just get an MGD and save myself the extra dollar.If you’re looking to try an Italian beer, pick up a Peroni instead.

12oz Bottle Pours out a light Pee color. With a tall white head. My first thought when I pourd it out was man this looks very poor. After i tasted it --> YES it was lame. F-

Ahhhh- the Italian BUD. I thought Peroni was a Italian bud - bud now I know the truth. Had this at a beerf fest and I was drinkalble - and that’s the best I could say.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Faint malty scent. Moretti lacks flavor; its flat, overly carbonated, and has a faint grainy taste. Its refreshing and drinkable, but I wouldn’t see myself getting a six-pack of this, but probably a single bottle. Hey, its better than U.S. Bud.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured golden with minor carbonation and decent white head and lace. Euroskunk aroma. In the mouth has a carboard and buscuits sort of snap to it followed by a bitter finish. Brisk, that’s the word I will use.
