Notes on beers brewed by

Birra Moretti (Heineken)

Moretti La Rossa Birra Doppio Malto

Oh yes, it's a malty monster alright, a real nice surprise and one of the most interesting beers I think that I've ever had. It's a spectacularly good looking beer, with a deep, deep, mahogany red color and a small, but perfectly formed head. It's one of the best combinations of hop backbone, alcohol and malty sweetness I can recall. This will not appeal to everyone, but it certainly does to me. Aroma is caramel and the taste follows. The alcoholic finish is magnificent with taste, strength...

Birra Moretti

$1.49 per bottle as part of mixed six pack, World Market, Marietta, GA. 355 mL. Pours a vary plae straw color with little or no head. Some significant lacing throughout the drink. This brew is another good example of the style, encapsulating what a decent lager should. Extremely clean and refreshing, with good balance of bitterness and grain. Certainly one to visit again.
