COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra Moretti La Rossa is a double bock beer produced using high quality 100% malted barley, giving it a rich sweet taste and an intense fragrance of roasted malt. The amber colour that characterizes the beer, comes from kind of malt used in the recipe (malt is dried, roasted barley). Another key ingredients is hops, the variety used is particularly aromatic, giving a characteristic bitter aftertaste and a delicate fragrance to the beer. The Master Brewers advise a service temperature between 10° and 12° C.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle at a small pizza place (That’s Amore) in Auckland CBD. Clear, dark amber pour with a beige head leaving minimal lace. Malty, candy nose. Medium body and carbonation. Bubblegum, yam, cotton candy and some bread. Finish has some earthiness which may be the type of hops used, but it’s still fairly sweet. I’m not very familiar with this style, but this one doesn’t have lots of appeal.

fuller body, kinda sticky, sweet licorice and caramel. seems like a more commercial version of a doublebock than paulaner. gotta check the price comparison but really this is good stuff. love the label too

Bottle. It was either this or the pale. Aroma has caramel, cereal, bread, notes. Pours reddish brown , clear, minimal white foam. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation, and sticky finish. It survived alongside a curry in Venice so deserves some respect.

Zlotta (3271) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Bier & Beer’, best before June 2018. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of mainly caramel, dark honey, some chocolate, lovage and a touch of red fruits. Quite sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of caramel, chocolate, nuts, dark honey and hints of red fruits, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly metallic and a bit boozy finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not that great, just a simple and typical industrial Bock.

APPEARANCE- rossa makes sense. Light and red great light head that’s playful with the glass in the lacing. NOSE- light toasting. I stole that from someone else on this beer, but it’s on point. FLAVOR- it tasted pretty strong for an Italian beer then I read something about a dopplebock. And it all made sense.
