Thanks to andregoncalves for this bottle. The nose has lots of grain, strange and not nice. The beer starts grainy, malty, absolute unround with hints of sugar. Not much body. The aftertaste is quite flat, grainy-strange and not nice...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pale, somewhat metallic pale lager with not too much hops. A weak head. Somewhat watery but with some malts. Manica is a better bet among the Mozambican beers.

For me it?s personally not as bad as previous ratings suggest. Yes, it?s a typical mass produced beer, but it has a distinct crisp taste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden with carbonating head. Aroma is not much. Some cereal and sweet malt. carbonated water palate. Aftertaste is very dry. Overall: Bad. The dry aftertaste is probably because of heavy use of sugar.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Aroma: Medium-light malty, grainy. Slight oxidation. No hop aromas.
Appearance: Body: Clear, light gold. Effervescent. Large white fizzy head.
Flavour: Medium grainy, sweet. Light bitterness. Crisp with dry, sharp finish. No hop flavours. Light oxidative caramel notes.
Mouthfeel: Light body. High carbonation.
Overall: Crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. Better than the previous one I rated but still has oxidation problems. Drinkable, but not a beer I would run to.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja.

Bottle from Supremo Cristal, Portugal. Country #101. Pours a very pale gold with small white head. Minimal aroma aside from its sweetness. Sweet to taste, light body, medium/high carbonation. Too sweet and no evidence of alcohol.
