Gold with a white head and spotty lacing. Lively carbonation. From 3 feet away, I can smell the skunk of the lightstricken pilsner malts. Other than that there is some light hops. The flavor isnít half bad. Some musky pils malts and a touch of sweetness. Slightly bitter hops. Palate is sharp, slightly acidic, the body is light and it finishes of with a bitter bite at the end.

Pours gold, with white head. Aroma of slight malt, corn. Tastes slightly better than American swill, with some dryness, hops, and malt in the finish.

I think I had a fresh bottle because the best before date said 05/05 on it. It didnt taste skunky or off, and was actually quite nice and refreshing. Granted it was quite bland with not much special about it, but it was a nice fathers day beer. I liked this a little better than their gran reserva.

Bottled. Peroni Red, Iíd have to agree with Austinpowers its just like a regular Peroni only more amber, rather then pale golden. A very no-descript larger but thoroughly enjoyed in last nights heat.
Earlier Rating: 6/20/2003 Total Score: 2.1
Bottled. Bright and bubbly, straw coloured larger. Slight malt taste with low bitterness. Too fizzy to drink any real quantity of.

Nothing exciting about this Peroni, or any Iíve had. Maybe the Italians should just stick to wine.

The only beer at Olive Garden that I had never tried. This stuff has the same skunky taste and smell that Heineken does. Not worth a second shot at all.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sour corn aroma and a light head with sizzle. Pale yellow color and a sticky palate. Obviously an Italian response to american mass produced swill that floods domestic and foreign markets. Does this make Peroni "Euro-trash"? Regardless, the taste is acrid and peppery. Patheticly sold as a charming Italian beer to unsuspecting, unaware Olive Garden patrons across the U.S..

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells like corn, tastes like corn. The body poured a clear golden/straw color with a thin off-white head. The flavor was dominated by corn and plenty of artificial sweet flavor. Vegetabley and not very pleasant. Hops leave a grassy mouthfeel. Too sweet and slightly offensive for a cheap lager.

why is it that "the number one beer in (insert country here)" tastes exactly like budweiser?
