Beer Italiana

Tonightís beer review is dedicated to my good buddy Shadoglare of Refractional Darkness. About a month ago we went to Old Chicago. While there he said that he hadnít found an Italian Beer that was worth drinking. When I was at the store looking for this week's pick, I saw Birra Moretti by the Heineken Italia S.P.A in Comun Nuovo, Italy. Hey, maybe I can find a good Italian Beer for my pal. So now Iím on a missionÖ oh and suggestions would be welcomed.

We have the standard 12 oz bottle; this one is cast with the name Moretti at the base of the neck. The label has an old world look to it with a guy sipping on a stein of beer. The name of the beer is under the picture.

This is a very pale yellow beer. Itís clear; light passes through it easily. There is not a hint of cloudiness to it. It poured a one-inch head that quickly fades into a film at the top. There is a very minimal lacing on the glass.

There is a week scent of barley malts and clean water to the beer. The combination of which reminds me of a cave spring, clean but kind of musty. Itís not unpleasant, but only because itís not very strong. The flavor is weak and watery. One can taste the malts, but barely anything else.

It is a thin, light bodied beer. There is a crisp smoothness to it that makes it very easy to drink. There is a slight bubbliness to it that helps enhance the experience with out making the drinker gassy.

Overall this is not a bad beer. Itís not something I would normally drink, as itís kind of pricey for what you get. However, if I was at an Italian restaurant or someone gave me one, I wouldnít pass it up. Iím going to rate this 4 out of 10.

Yeah that's my problem with them so far, is that they're watery, light-tasting beer. For something like that you might as well just go buy Bud Light.
If they make a darker beer over there, I haven't seen it yet.
