Taste: great, actually. i had a bottle before... i remember it being more bland, like a watered down Heineken. But i remembered wrong. Peroni puts forth a delightfully balanced taste, i want to compare it to a cross between Heineken and Corona, but its much better than just that. Quite yummy. Doesn't wear me out like other brewskies. Bravo, Peroni. You've made a believer out of me.
