The original Italian lager. Peroni is the number one lager brand in Italy and has been for over one and a half centuries. This premium, clear, golden-yellow lager, with 4.7 ABV, is the result of the dedication to brewing of generations of the most qualified braumeisters.
Brewed using the finest spring barley malts and hops, its taste is slightly bitter. A refreshing smooth lager, Peroni is suitable for all occasions.

Compared with stablemate Nastro Azzuro, this is crisper, slightly hoppier, but loses refinement (mostly in the form of grassiness. in the process.

Well, there's not much good I can say about this beer, except for maybe the 2/3 liter bottles but it ends there. Flavorless, putrid aroma and generally bland.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Smooth and light, this is a good beer. While a little bland it is of high quality. It is not full bodied enough but that is my only real gripe.

Yuck. Very thin and watery. Very pale and light. Little on the skunky side. Not very good. Italians should stick to making wine and vermouth.

Well all I can say is.... I had Peroni. This was like the Ultra-light of beers as far as flavor, depth, color head and taste is concerned. It was just to weak in all areas for me.

not a great deal to report here. a basic mockery-of-munich style lager: post-it note wan yellow, visibly brisk carbonation, light grassy grains and a clean but not profound aroma, brisk with a watery and dry lightness that lends itself to large, throat bathing and quenching swallows. i didn't feel that note taking was necessary to give a plausible account of the product --if it had subtle notes of tuscan roses or lombardy lilac in vernal bloom, i must have missed it. i did enjoy this italian beer with italian food, peroni being the most interesting offering at an "olive garden" restaurant. but i didn't percieve any palpable "oneness" or special connection that the beer had to the food, as people so often report of say: a taco and a tecate while in tijuana. it's true that at one point the ravoli seemed to wink at the beer, but that was possibly just my fanciful imagination, and though i brought it to the attention of the wait staff and patrons of adjoining tables, i wasn't able to bring anyone else up to my level of enthusiasm because the phenomena wouldn't repeat itself; on the contrary i was asked to simmer down or i'd have to leave the establishment, which diminished the supposed "when you're here, you're family" aura of total acceptance in all my famial flaws. i complained about the frosted glass, and though the waiter called me "buddy", i think there was something dead in my vegetarian ravioli. some type of mammal, i'm sure. being "family", i did offer to help clear off the dishes, but again was rebuffed. all things considered, the beer was a bright spot.

(23Jan2003--12oz.bottle) Hmmm, not terribly flawed, but neither is this outstanding. Pretty average. Thin head, strangely lumpy and nonuniform. Non-lacing, mostly receding, extremely coarse bubbles at first; finer later. Dominantly fruity aroma, lightly yeasty. Tangy hop flavor, but sweet. Bitter enough. A bit skunky.

Pale yellow gold with a light body and mild bitterness. Floral hop notes with a clean finish. Lots of carbonation. Italy should stick to making wine instead of beer.

Another frikkin green bottle, you would think I would learn to say away from these in every day life. But no.... The only reason I can even see wanting to drink this, is if you are at an authentic Italian restaurant. Then it goes well with the food, but other than that you have no reason to drink this beer.

Very well suited for Italian food. It was a little skunky smelling and tasting. Light in the mouth. Decent but not great.
