Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 81: Birra Moretti

What? You thought I'd stop at only 80 beers? In Jules Vern's "Around The World In 80 Days," Phinias Fogg did the trip in 79 days, yet he book wasn't called "Around The World In 79 Days." I have quite a few episodes to go, yet!

Birra Moretti
I think I met this bloke in Florence.

Pours a pale yellow with a lot of fizz in the glass. A medium head that fades away slowly.

First Sip: Quite a sweet malt, with some citrus flavours and a little hops. Has a dry finish with a slightly bitter after-taste. Mouth-feel is creamy, with foamyness from the fizz.

Not bad, but a little ordinary; ie a typical Euro pale lager brewed by Heineken. Come to think of it, it's not bad by Heineken standards. It would make a decent session lager on a hot day.
