Peroni Nastro Azzurro looks very light. It had pretty much no head on it. Even though it is an imported beer, it tasted very much like a normal light domestic beer. I'm not exactly sure how to rate this one as it wasn't bad, but like I just said (or typed, for all you literalists), it wasn't something that really stood out to me. I guess I'll rate it as a Finisher. I would drink this one, but it's not one I would just buy a lot of.

Poor imports. They have to be so much better just because they're so much more expensive. You expect more of a beer brewed in Rome. I don't know why, but you just do.
Anyway, this beer was light and crisp. It had no head, and tasted like your standard pilsner with a little (little) more flavor..
