Share This Review

Cervisia Mozzo is an American-style Amber Ale brewed by Cervisia, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a rust color that’s mostly cloudy and is topped by an inch-thick cap of loose off-white foam that shows modest retention. Soapy residue gathers at the collar during the reduction.

Aroma

Its aroma initially smells vinous but as the beer warms, it takes on a more appropriate scent of caramel and malt.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of soft baked bread that rises quickly to a bite of floral and piney hops, orange peel, and then follows with a mild dose of herbal hops that lingers briefly. Toasted bread and light caramel flavors tie the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth and somewhat dry with a medium-light body and a little less-than-moderate carbonation.

Overall

The aroma for the Cervisia Mozzo is different but not unpleasant. Its appearance is fine but the feel could use more body. Its palate could use more hops or an earthy character to round out the palate. But even if it is too malty, the ale does have a nice flavor. Cervisia Mozzo may not be perfect, but if you’re in Italy, and looking for a balanced brew, this is an acceptable option.

About the American Amber Ale

The American Amber Ale is similar to the American Pale Ale and American IPA styles but has a more pronounced malt backbone (caramel malt, typically) and it has less bitterness than the similar American Red Ale. The ale is amber in color with moderate alcohol strength. The style typically has a medium body or a bit over with matching carbonation.
