Bottle. Nice color and appearance, although the head was a little soft for my tastes. The flavor was annoyingly missing - it reminded me most strongly of Coors.

Um, bad. I guess they use the term "premium lager" loosely. Pretty much the Italian version of crappy macro brewed beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle 12 oz. decent American/pils style lager without that crappy stale cornflake cereal taste. Clean, with a nice tart nip. Pushing med bodied. Slight malt sweetness but basically dry, balanced well with mild hop flavor & nice hop bitterness. Wouldn’t hesitate to drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 1) Not a bad effort from the Italians. Crystal clear, bright gold beer combining the malty softness of a lager with the crisp biitterness of a Pilsener. Finishes with a definite punch of dry hops. 10/01/06.
2) 660ml watching England vs Holland. 5,000 beers in, this still tastes like a fine beer to me; herbal hop, honey, a clean, ringing bread stick note. Good lager without off notes and a distinctly German accent.

Averagely average. If confronted with having to drink this or be punched in the privates, I’d have to consider things for a while and then drink it. Gives Italian lager a poor reputation.

Bottle from my brother along with a Gran Riserva which was much nicer. This has a pale golden colour is heavily carbonated, corn aroma, and whilst crisp and possibly refreshing on a hot day this is a very drab beer. Not great.

"The beer for the knowledgeable and demanding consumer" my ass. This is Italian Miller. I drank plenty of it while traipsing across Italy, because most of the places that my budget could get me into didn’t serve real beer. I had it on draft. I had it bottled. I had it in cans. It never managed to rise above the level of mediocre. So congrats Peroni guys, you managed to created an average brew that’ll keep you from dying of thirst on a hot day. Go celebrate.
