COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ttoadee (1664) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2017
Slightly hazy amber pour, no real head. Nose is malty and a little bready. Middle is carmelized malt, little wood, and mild hop bitterness. Finish is somewhat drier than the middle, but still fairly balanced. Not bad.

wombat23 (2147) - Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Best before January of 2018. Pours a pale amber hue with a cream-colored head which is fleeting. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown bread. Taste is caramel, bread, malt, nuts. Bland but drinkable.

EugeneStraver (324) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
HOME (33 cl bottle): Light gushing by opening bottle. Makes the beer cloudy (besides fine particles also some bigger ones). Colour is amber and a fine, thin light brown head. The aroma is a little unfresh (phenol, hospital, yeast), but for the rest a nice caramel flavour. Taste is sweet, caramel and for the rest like the aroma. Not so good. In the aftertaste also some hop bitter besides the caramel sweetness. Palate is sweet sticky.

jonas (8278) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2015
Alive bottle! Fruity nose, spices, interesting hops. Cloudy orange, white foam. Medium light, mellow mouthfeel. Hayish body, smoky notes, spices, lightly lightstruck. Minerally and herbal finish.

3.3
erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2015
Light amber body and fizzy head. Apple, sweet pale malts, bit boring. Taste is better, more pronounced. (Odd find! Bottle at pizzeria next to Mont Parnasse)

2.9
Sigmund (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2015
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, as Birra Roma, lotto 411. B B date 09 2013. ABV is 5.5%. Cloudy amber to reddish brown colour, with floaties in the glass. Moderate off-white head. The aroma is a bit unfresh, but not really unpleasant. Malty with notes of caramel, molasses, dark dried fruits, nuts and wood. The flavour is not as sweet as the aroma made me fear, malty with hints of caramel, a little fruit, slightly woody. Very moderate hops. Nice enough to drink, but probably not something I will buy again.
