1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Piss lager yellow, no head, carbonation death after five minutes. Very gravely barley initial taste, no tang or refreshment, dry bitter finish. No edge of sweetness or balance of flavour at all. Portugal’s piss beer.
Bottle, The only one in the Grocers fridge near Riberia Square, Porto

A no-brainer for a hot summer day otherwise nothing remarkable can be said about it.

Niby to Pilsner, ale jak lager. Mało gożki. Jasnu i prawie słomkowy. Piana nawet fajna i trwała. Ale poza tym to chyba masówka

On tap & bottle. Mainstream lager, some unpleasant off flavours, weak aromas, nothing remarkable.

11 July 2012: 330ml can poured into a tumbler on the balcony of our holiday apartment in the Algarve after a days sun lounging. Just what I needed: usual pale lager/pilsner look, feel and odourless nose. This your typical cheap European pilsner and fine for hot days in the sun, but not for serious beer drinkers.

Little bottle. Golden color, little foam. Sweet aroma. Watery taste. Not impressive.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Paid 1.20 Euro for a single bottle. I’m real glad they had singles for sale, this is just as bad as the standard Super Bock. Pale lagers are not my thing. Here yet is another example of why. Urine color. No head or retention. Soft carbonation.
Nose is a weak grain, showing nothing else. Has a strange bitterness. I’m really searching for some kind of flavor... I just can’t find anything here. Thin and watery. Why even bother taking the time brewing this??? I rarely pour out a beer. This went down the drain. After this trip I will not touch a pale lager again for awhile!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ligth yellow colour with a white head. A moderate sweet malt aroma. Light malty and light hoppy flavour. Thin texture. Ok when it is REALLY hot. Otherwise not.
