2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, drunk on location in Los Lobos, The Algarve, Portugal. </br>
Served as the bottled alternative to draft Super Bock (which dominates the beer landscape down there), it wasn’t bad at all. A golden larger with plenty of cold fizz. Larger malt aroma with light background of hopes. Not a bad alternative, particularly if the bar didn’t take care of there lines as well as they should, which was apparent in some places.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drinking this just to add South Africa. The appearance is an artificial neon yellow with a small head. Smells like corn and tobacco. Gives me heartburn. Tastes like burnt corn.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not bad, I suppose, a palate cleanser at best. Golden-amber coloring with a fizzy soda head. Boring, bland taste, with some very very faint hoppy sweetness. A very chalky, malty finish that is very watered down.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating this in the Jose Marti airport in Havana. Typical warm weather lager. But, when it is 105 degrees with 99% humidity it is a life saver.
