2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The can looks like nothing special, the beer in the glass a bit better - quite zippy, huge head. Starts hoppy, modest dry, sweet and fruity in the middle - reminds me of a German radler. Weak and metallically finish. Really nothing special!

can 33cl , ABV 5.2% can is red, ribbon in the bottom is black, black ring at the far bottom is red, otherwise as pictured. I think it’s the same beer.
clear slightly orangy yellow, thick small white head.
faint sourish cererally aroma, like if rice and corn had been used to brew it.
sweet corn, faint cardboard, grainy, cereral flavor, almost as if it was one of the better spanish sin alc. beers , just with 5.2% alc. not very good in other words

Bottle from Oddbins. Pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma is well hopped, slightly sweet. Flavour of grassy hops, some malts. Not too bad.

While traveling in Portugal this was a common beer offered on tap at bars and other eating locations. The beer pours with a nice head and good golden color. The beer is a basic lager with no special attributes. It is often served with no other options.

I enjoyed many a Super Bock on my trip to Portugal, particularly in the Liter-sized bottles. The beer had a faint malty aroma with some barley, and a bit of grainy hops. It had a clear gold color with a slight, bubbly white head with average retention and little cling. The flavor was a bit bitter and malty, nothing too unique. It was only slightly dry with modest wetness and a smooth feel overall, but not much liveliness. An unoriginal beer, but good to have while in Portugal.

Got fooled by the name on this one. cardboard, light malt aroma. slightly deep golden color. A little decent malt in the flavor. Not much in the way of hopping. Pretty useless, but I have had worse for the money.

Had this at a family reunion in Mass
Bottle poured into a proper glass produced a big frothy white head on top of a clear golden colored body.
The brew smelled extremely sweet but nothing like a bock there was a slight bitter smell as well
It was light and crisp in your mouth but the flavors were towards the sweet end of the spectrum. The bar tender told me most Portuguese like it because it doesn’t give them heartburn.
It was a one and done for me not enough of a balance here
