Birra Roma is inspired by the colors and flavors typical of Rome, the Eternal City. With its gold color, this beer has a strong malt taste, that gives it a sweet scent. With its light but persistent body, it stands out fairly and pleasantly bitter with a toasted aftertaste and a touch of smoked wood. Well matched with Italian dishes, in particular with Rome’s typical cuisine.

Editor’s note: apparently the first bottles were called simply "Birra Roma", and as of 2013 "Birra Roma Ambrata"; Ambrata and Bionda can be separated by the ABV.

yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. There’s lots of microfloaties in this one, it’s hazy and dark orange in color. A small, dense, light beige head sits on top. The aroma is fruity and lighlty smoked, ham notes and some bread. Caramel hints in the flavor, along with smoked ham, some bread and tropical fruits. Lacks on bitterness I think, but as it’s brewed to be a beer drank with food, I guess it’s ok. Medium body, rather sweetish. Fruity and smoked finish. Drinking it without food isn’t much interesting, never tried it with food. 121110

Benzai (15930) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle @ MaartenRF10. Thanks for sharing Maarten! Hazy amber color, small off-white head that diminishes almost instantly. Aroma is malts, quite sweet and floral. Taste malts, sweetness, a hint of honey, floral, a hint of strawberry (Dutch) "jam". Decent body and carbonation. Highly doubt it’s a good example of the style but the beer is quite decent.
