New Brew Tuesday: Peroni Nastro Azzurro


Type: BeerEuro Pale Lager
Name: PeroniNastro Azzurro
Price: $1.59
Made:  Italy
Alc/Vol: 5.1%

“Pironi Nastro Azzurro is the No. 1 premium Italian beer. It has an intensely crisp and refreshing taste with an unmistakable touch of Italian style.”

Now I am not a big doppelbock fan, don’t get me wrong I like my dark beers but more so in the porter/stout. It’s something about those dark fruits that don’t seem to work well with my pallet. Usually, I can barely finish one just like with winter ales. This one wasn’t bad though, in fact if you look up Doppel Bock beers on this is the highest rated. Therefore, this is the cream of the crop of doppel bock, or so I’ve been led to believe. (more…)

I’m not much of a scotch drinker, but then again I like my whiskeyso I’m not that far off. My step-father on the other hand is a Bourbon fan. Some of you will read this and give that satisfactory nod, others are scratching your head. For the latter, all Scotch and Bourbon are a type of whiskey but not all whiskeys are scotches/bourbons. Got it? (more…)
