Cristal Pilsener Desde 1890.
56003611 20cl br btl bb11.2016
Clear pale straw golden.
Off white head.
Aroma of grass, wort, mash, citrus, bread - quite pilsnerish aroma.
Tastes grassy hops, bready malts, has a fruity feel and finishes bready fruit-grassy.
Palate; normal, fruity.
Overall almost as expected from a pilsener, barely approved.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Olhão 9/7 2016. 33 cl can from Jumbo Supermarket. Golden can with something that looks like a gull on it. Pours clear pale yellow with white head which vanishes upon pouring. Aroma of sweet malts and something chemical reminding me of burnt rubber. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is rather sweet without much bitterness for balance. Apart from that it does not taste of much. Thank god for small favors. Not anything I will care to purchase again.

Bottle at home. Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma is malt, grass and paper. First taste was very metallic which fades to malty nothingness. Meh

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thin headed. Sweet industrial appeal, hopless, hopeless. Watery, straightforward, short ending. Bland and uninteresting, even Super Bock is better. (33cl bottle from a supermarket on my Algarve holiday)

The cheapest supermarket beer in portugal is actually palatable. Clean and not too skunked. Mild and refreshing with a effervescent body. Crisp finish. Decent
