COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra Moretti is a genuine beer produced using a traditional process that has remained almost unchanged since 1859. To produce Birra Moretti, only the highest quality raw materials are used and a particular mixture of valuable hops, that gives the beer its aroma and unique fragrance, intensifying the slight bitter flavour. It is a low fermented beer that has a golden colour, the tone of which is given by the quality of malt used. The alcoholic content is 4,6% volume that make it suitable to drink at any time of the day. In fact it is a perfect accompaniment to both dinner and lunch or to drink in the evening with friends.

Looked quite nice in the glass, but the taste was thin and watery. Not bitter enough. There are worse European lagers, I suppose.

This isnt terrible, considering it is a pale lager. It doesnt have an overwhelming metallic smell like macro pale lagers.

A lively, but clear golden pour. Has a small white head that dissipates quickly. Does have some lacing. Aroma is grassy....well, actually kinda skunky.....really put off by it. Taste has strong flavor of corn....adjuncts? This is not very good at all. I wont be drinking this again.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Pours a very pale yellow with a snowwhite head. Dissipates very quickly but is very fizzy. Smell is lightly grassy with a light bittering hops in the background. Taste is grassy, rice crispness. Sparkling mineral water flavors. Long unpleasant mineral bitterness. Clean and crisp mouth. Very fizzy. Overall, unpleasant little lager lots of that mineral water bitterness (for lack of a better descripter) and not enjoyable on any level.

Gold colored with aromas of dry hops, some citrusy pale malt. Tastes bland and watery, with some hopcit in the finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2632) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours like any other pale lager. Uninspiring and boring. Italy is known for wine, not beer..

After hearing so many negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised with this burnished gold "Italian Heineken." A smooth malty, yeasty nose, I dont get the vegetal and spicy tones at all, maybe some apple--one of the ubiquitous European pale lagers for sure, but not bad considering. I would choose this over a Bud, I call it a pleasant-enough, sweetish thirst quencher.

ALLOVATE (2934) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2005
As its now part of the Heineken group, I dont know whether this beer has gotten better or, even worse still, remained in its original form. Pours a clear pale straw with islands of effervescent bubbles in place of its missing head. Unusual ground pepper, chives and bittering hops in the aroma. Husky malt in the mouth, very light bodied and spritzy in carbonation. Became sweeter as it warmed, but remained husky and dry throughout, with only a hint of lemony hops. Nothing too offensive about it, but it didnt seem the refresher I expected from a Mediterranean country such as its homeland. Just didnt work for me!!!
