BIRRA MORETTI LAGER

Birra Moretti lager. You know, I feel like an idiot. I've been ignoring this for ages in the belief that I'd already covered it. I hadn't.

What I had covered was the Birra Moretti Grand Cru and the Birra Moretti Baffo D'Oro and I didn't find myself remotely impressed with either of them.

This is the stock, mainstream lager from Birra Moretti and it's an acceptable pizza companion, without ever so much as hinting at being something special.

There's a healthy, nicely balanced carbonation to it, but like the Baffo D'Oro, it's a fairly malty old thing. 

It feels inoffensive, tastes inoffensive and its after taste isn't anything to either cheer or jeer about. It's nicely middle-of-the-road. 

Oh, coincidentally, did I mention Birra Moretti has been owned by Heineken since 1996? Explains a lot, huh?

 

5/10
