Peroni Nastro Azzuro & Peroni Gran Riserva Tasting Notes

A while back on my Twitter feed, Peroni asked me to try out there Peroni Nastro Azzuro and let them know what I thought, so last night I nipped down to The Waterside in Sale to taste this Italian lager.

Peroni Nastro Azzuro

Served in a tall and elegant Peroni branded stemmed glass, a pale yellow lager awaits you. Upon tasting, it gave off a light malt flavour with a sweet follow through and a surprising refreshing end. At 5.2% it has a slightly higher alcohol content than most lagers, but you don’t really sense that and it disguises itself well. It doesn’t make yourself too bloated so I could see myself having a few pints or bottles of Peroni Nastro Azzuro to last the night.


Peroni Gran Riserva

I also came across another brand under the Peroni title named Peroni Gran Riserva. They sell both bottles at The Circle 360, so my friend purchased the slightly stronger lager (6.6%) and let me try. On the nose it gave off a dry fruit and note aroma, with the taste coming through a little more stronger, all though it is quite well-rounded. It’s a smoother lager than the Nastro Azzuro and is lightly carbonated – you could almost mistake it for a light ale. A sweet after-taste presents itself making a mourish scent. This is one lager I’ll be buying in a hurry!


Out of the two, Peroni Nastro Azzuro is obviously the most commonly available in bars and restaurants and is a light and refreshing drink, but don’t be afraid to try its brother the Gran Riserva – it could surprise you into making itself the head of the family.
