Italy’s oldest and best-known brewer, Birra Peroni, launched this beer in 1996 to celebrate its 150th anniversary. Gran Riserva is brewed from Saaz hops and Prisma barley malt. The low temperature fermentation lasts 8 weeks and prolonged cellaring gives this Bock-style beer its mature flavour.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/11/2013

Appearance

Clear coppery amber with thin but lasting white head.

Aroma

Caramel and toffee malty nose.

Taste

Medium bodied, malty and toasty with a light hoppiness. Very slight toffee sweetness with strong alcohol adding necessary bite.

Aftertaste

Lingering malty caramel. Filling and satisfying rather than refreshing. An Italian beer with balls if not great depth of flavour.
