Beer Review: Peroni Beer

S.p.A Birra Peroni Brewing Company Peroni Beer

Finally, got a chance to try this Italian import that I have seen popping up more and more. While I know Italy has a local microbrewery scene this is the only brush with Italian brewing that I have encountered. The green bottle is an immediate loss of a couple points but not the biggest deal. I have had great beers in green bottles. The brew pours a light golden color with a very white head. Classic pilsner look. Aroma of light malt. Not too much to smell.

The flavor is a dead ringer for Heineken. Light skunky flavor with a very light malt flavor. Some hoppiness but really nothing powerful. This is a very basic European import pilsner. Something that I am sure most people have had before. Just replace a Heineken label with Peroni and you are there.

I am not big on this beer. It seems like there are endless brands offering this same style of beer. I would like to be able to differentiate this beer but as I feared it is just another import clone. If you are a big Heineken fan give this a try but if you don't like skunky beer stay away. To me, there is nothing new to be found here. This is a disappointing offering from a country that produces such aromatic and flavorful cuisine and wine.

Final Score: 62% (Skunky and Boring. Been Down this Road Too Many Times.)

Whaaaa...? It's nothing like Heineken! Peroni is much smoother. Dude, your taste buds are off.

@Anonymous #1... Amen to that. Pardon the English, but this ain't nowhere near Heineken.

If you're an elitist perhaps you should just stick with microbrews. If you want a beer, give it a try.

posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform
like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

Hi there, I believe your blog may be having browser compattibility issues.
Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that,
wonderful blog!
