Got a 50cl bottle from the brewer himself, João Palmeira. This is a really interesting beer. Dark copper color with thin head. Taste is a bit of all, light sweet, light bitter and light sour. Nice and balanced. Body is medium and texture is lightly sticky. Carbonation is medium and the finish and long and bitter. Nice! Aroma is medium malty, light caramel, herbs, spices, pepper, some alcohol, some wood, cellar. Very good!

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy amber with a gigantic, fizzy beige head that dissipates completely. Some burned caramel in the nose but also a lurking lactic tartness. Medium body, very fizzy in the mouth, the lemony and lactic infection now dominates completely. Pity. 231215

Backlog rating. Bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. It pours a light brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, with notes of caramel, toasted bread, dates, dough. Taste is sweet and yeasty, with notes of biscuit, caramel, spicy yeast, dried leaves. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not sure about this one

Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Paul the portugal pusher. Aroma is subdued light orange , lemon and grains. Light hazed golden coloured pour with a light white head. Flavour is apple, banana, stale malts. Palate is flabby, somewhat thin, and grainy. Pretty bad.

A mediocre Scotch as far as Scotch ales go, but pretty decent as a Portuguese beer. Picked it up in a store in Braga with Kent and Nick in 2014. Light amber colored, musty aroma with a too sweet finish.
