Too Lazy, Want To Drink

Overall, Peroni 0.0 has managed to create a flavorful beverage that offers both complexity and refreshment at the same time and remains true to the company’s iconic Italian heritage. If you like Italian lagers you’re going to love this one.

How Is Peroni 0.0 Brewed?

The beer’s alcohol content is completely removed during the fermentation process, so it contains none of the effects of traditionally brewed beers.

The brewing process for Peroni 0.0 begins by using malt barley that has been malted in Italy, where the unique climate creates a smoother taste compared to other styles of beer. It then undergoes several steps: mashing – where enzymes are used to break down starches into sugar; lautering (or straining) – which separates solids from liquid; boiling – adding hops for flavor and aroma; cooling – reducing temperature before fermenting; and finally filtering out any impurities before bottling.

Aroma

When it comes to the aroma of Peroni 0.0, there’s a few things that immediately come to mind. 

Firstly, you get whiffs of sweet malt and cereal notes which give way to subtle herbal hop aromas. 

There’s also hints of citrus zest in the nose as well. Overall, the scent is quite mild yet inviting all at once.

While the aroma is not overpowering, it is still present enough to make you anticipate the taste that is to come. 

Appearance

Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0 has a bright, golden appearance that is clear and inviting. 

The beer’s carbonation is noticeable, with plenty of bubbles rising to the surface, creating a lively and effervescent look. 

There’s also a good amount of carbonation visible when poured into a glass, which creates a nice head that stays for some time, leaving behind a thin layer of foam that lingers. 

With its clear and bright golden hue, Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0 has a classic lager appearance that is both refreshing and visually appealing. 

The color of the beer ranges from light to medium gold and has an average clarity throughout. 

Flavor

On first sip, you’ll find yourself pleasantly surprised by accents of biscuit and caramel malts mingling together before giving way to an underlying bitterness from hops which linger long after each swallow. 

It might not be overly strong or overpowering on the palate but it does offer up some interesting complexity for sure.

The flavor of Peroni 0.0 is a light and refreshing taste, with a hint of sweetness coming through from the malt grain used to make it. 

The hops present put forward some slight bitterness but not enough to overpower its overall mildness. Perfect to complement pasta or a pizza.

The flavors work together to create a balanced yet enjoyable brew that all types of drinkers can enjoy.

Mouthfeel

The mouthfeel for this can be described as a mild carbonation with a smooth finish. 

The subtle yet complex notes created by brewing with malt barley, maize, hops and yeast create a full-bodied brew that’s refreshingly crisp and clean on the palate. While some may find this too light for their taste, it makes up for its lower strength with its more intense flavors – and without leaving behind an aftertaste associated with higher ABV beers.

How Does Peroni 0.0 Compare To Regular Peroni

Comparing Peroni 0.0 to the original version of Peroni beer, there are some slight differences in both taste and mouthfeel. 

While the non-alcoholic version has all the same ingredients as regular Peroni beer, it is brewed differently.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0% has a similar crisp and refreshing taste as regular Peroni Nastro Azzurro, but with a slightly sweeter taste, likely due to the residual sugars from the brewing process.

In terms of mouthfeel, the big difference between these two beers comes down to carbonation levels. Regular Peroni has more carbonation than Peroni 0.0.

Overall, while there may be some slight differences in flavor and texture between regular and non-alcoholic versions of Peroni Beer, they still have much in common.

Peroni 0.0 Overall Impression
