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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
Aroma: cardboard, skunk, sweet grain, metallic.
Appearance: Body: pale gold, very clear. Head: Frothy, white, medium. good retention.
Flavour: Malt: medium to light bready. Hop bitterness: medium. Hop flavour: slight floral. Balance: slightly towards bitterness. Finish: dry. Slight vomit. Slight acidity from carbonation.
Palate: Medium-light body, high carbonation. carbonic bite.
Overall: Vomit/skunk should never be a flavour or aroma in beer. But there might be something hiding behind the imperfections.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja!

Crystal blond, low head, almost no body, malty and corn, too much sweet and watery... not to repeat!

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, from trade with abemorsten. Pours a clear golden body with a medium, short-lasting white head. Nose is sweet grains, corn, syrup and hints of nuts in the back. Taste is bland malty tones, corn flakes and hints of syrup. Virtually no hops, only a low-humming bitterness in the background. Light body, fizzy carbonation. There’s really nothing wrong with this one, it’s just extremely bland and slightly sweet.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Shared at local tasting. Pours clear straw colored with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet grains, a bit off the bulls eye though. Taste indicates the same, water, water and even more water.
