Italian restaurants are known for their wine selection, not their beer lists. Often, if they have beer, Peroni is the only brew on tap. Enoteca San Marco at The Venetian in Las Vegas is no different, making my most recent Peroni experience very much like all the rest.
Easily the most-recognized Italian beer, this 163-year-old brew is now owned by SABMiller.
Peroni is a light lager. 4.7% ABV
Peroni pours a clear, pale yellow with not much head beyond a thin frosting of bubbles. It gives off a subtle floral aroma, with just a hint of apple or pear.
Taste & Feel
This beer has a very lively body, giving an almost champange-like feeling on the tongue.
There's not much complexity of flavor to it. Clean, crisp, hoppy. Any initial taste is overpowered by the bubbly mouthfeel, and it finishes with a mild bitterness.
If you like dark, smooth or rich beers, this won't be the brew for you. However, everyone should try it once.
I suggest having it the next time you're eating at a nice Italian place and nothing else is on tap.
