COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra Roma is inspired by the colors and flavors typical of Rome, the Eternal City. With its gold color, this beer has a strong malt taste, that gives it a sweet scent. With its light but persistent body, it stands out fairly and pleasantly bitter with a toasted aftertaste and a touch of smoked wood. Well matched with Italian dishes, in particular with Rome’s typical cuisine.

Editor’s note: apparently the first bottles were called simply "Birra Roma", and as of 2013 "Birra Roma Ambrata"; Ambrata and Bionda can be separated by the ABV.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1590) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2013
Today’s 2nd beer is an Oktoberfest from Italy’s Birradamare: Birra Roma Ambrata. I picked up a six-pack on sale as some labels were scuffed, lucky me! 5.5% bottle from Rakuten. Drunk from a glass beer mug. An opaque nutty honey looking brown with a thick foamy head. Quite a fruity-wine like aroma reminiscent of Belgian yeast. A nice full bodied mouthfeel with some nutty, biscuity qualities & a touch of spicy smoke. I think Japanese people would call it "goku". The online reviews had me not expecting much so I was pleasently surprised! This is pretty tasty! A really solid beer.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2013
On tap at Terrazza in Chatswood, Australia. Sweet malty beer (caramel?) with a light head, clear golden appearance. Still a pleasant bitter edge rounding it out, very drinkable.

nimbleprop (4543) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Weird little 33cl bottle pours a hazy, caramel amber with some thin, off white head. Nose is yeast, a little biscotti, cracker, some apple, bread. Flavor takes a sharp turn, tomatoes, celery seed, bread, a little cardboard, some odd smokey. Strange, sweet finish. Why can’t these Italian brewers just try and stick to styles?

cagou007 (312) - FRANCE - MAY 7, 2013
Pours a murky orange colour with a medium white head which settles down quickly. Aromas are malts and bread with a hint of smoked wood. Maybe a light chocolate aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation is a bit disturbing. A lightly hoppy finish, a bit short actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
