On today’s Midweek Drink, I shall be reviewing for you an alcohol-free lager called Peroni Libera Alcohol Free 0.0%. But before we begin, let’s just get a quick recap on the history of Peroni Brewery.
A brief history of Peroni Brewery
The brewery was founded in 1846 by Francesco Peroni in the town of Vigevano, Italy. In 1864, Francesco’s son, Giovanni Peroni, moved the company to Rome due to high demand.
Since then, Peroni has gone from strength to strength with their lagers - especially their famous pale lager, Nastro Azzurro. The company was bought out in 2003 by the London-based company SABMiller. 13 years later, SABMiller was bought out by Asahi Breweries, Japan’s largest brewing company.
So let’s crack on with the review, shall we?
Three senses and a beverage
The ingredients used are: water, barley malt, Italian maize, hops, natural flavourings. Peroni Libera is 0.0% and comes in a 330ml bottle.
Peroni Libera has a clear, light amber tone, with low and smooth carbonation and a frothy, light white head that dissipates slowly. With the aroma, my nose can pick out the barley (which is quite overpowering), the hops and a subtle fruitiness.
It has a very sweet taste, and also, I get the odd taste of banana on my tongue which blends very well with the fine bitterness at the end of each sip you take. The lager itself is crisp, refreshing and light bodied, and to be honest, this was more enjoyable than the typical Peroni you’ll get at the pub.
