Or simply “Peroni,” it’s the most accessible beer I’ve reviewed to date, a distinction fraught with largely well-deserved suspicion.
STYLE: Euro Pale Lager
LOOK: Translucent yellow, highly carbonated, wafer thin. I can, yeah, see my fingerprints on the other side of the glass. Great for a crime-scene detective, not so great for beer.
NOSE: Soulless bread, a man without a backbone. There’s a note, distinctly off-putting, that I can’t, and maybe won’t, pull.
MOUTH: Carrots, lemon, canned asparagus. That carbonation, it fades – quickly. Leaving only a mouthful of what can charitably be called beer.
