Maltier and hoppier than I excpected, that said I did not call my mother immediately after drinking this one.

I wasn’t expecting much from this one...however I found it to be a very smooth easy drinking Italian brew. A little weak, but a good flavor. I would buy this again if it was more reasonably priced. Weak, but good for a pilsner since pilsners generally are weak. Has a good cereal grain texture/taste to it. This is definately my favorite pilsner. Very refreshing.

Pours a pale yellow colour with a large shortish lasting head. Sharp sappy-hoppy and faint soapy aromas. Lots of medium sized bubbles but relatively flat on the tongue with not much there stimulating the mouth. A mild, bitter, faintly sweet flavour and soft bitter finish.

I see Moretti seems to score slightly higher than the Peroni, though back-to-back, I cannot taste any difference between the two at all. No difference!!!................But since Moretti produces the La Rossa, which is adequate, I have to give Moretti some credit. Fizzy, yellow. No different than Bud and I don’t understand why some rate this higher just because it’s from outside the USA. That, IMHO, doesn’t make it better, just cooler.

Subtle fruity aroma, weak watery palate, and lightly carbonated. Light gold color, and a head that dissapeared quickly. This brew is not nearly as good as La Rossa, but drinkable nontheless.

As usual, pilseners seem to get lower ratings, but my dad raised me with an appreciation of a good pilsener, and I have always liked this one.

Easy drinking pilsener, but I didn’t like the carbonation so much. Not a very bold taste in any respect, but a nice, smooth beer to accompany a meal.

A little watery pilsener. I found it quite refreshing on a warm spring day in Rome. Flavor is quite bland and palate is very simple. Not bad, not good, very drinkable

One of the weaker pilseners . I can see the effects off Heineken in it . Similar but less sharp . Look’s like normal pils but so what , did not refreshed me at all . I had to have one Tatran to fix my aftertaste :) ...

I don’t expect much from Heineken, but I was a little dissapointed in the Italian Beer. It is drinkable, however overpriced.
