1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 The aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of grass. The appearance is pale gold with a thin head and low carbonation. The flavor is like the aroma and not that good. The palate is thin. This beer amounts to bitter sweet nothing.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
E-frickin’-normous whate head on top of a clear coppery body. Very sweet toffee aroma, and a bit of a brown sugar or molassess flavor. This was a bit tastier than I thought it would be.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. A pale golden beer with a vanishing white head. Neutral and sweetish aroma, hints of malts and hayish hops.Taste is clean but weak and bland, without any distinct flavors. A thin-bodied and unexciting macrolager.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle that is 14 months past date. Deep breath. Exhale. Here goes nothing. Pretty raunchy aroma-- metallic, old wet dishrag. Offputting petroleum chemical undertone to a corny sweet featureless pale lager. Very bad.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This beer clearly isn’t very good. The Portugese can’t cook - their food is rubbish. They can’t make wine - I hate rose. They may be good at football - though they do like a div, but this does not make this beer good. I drank it when in Lisbon and, as they say, when in Lisbon... Anyway, it’s pretty strong, but has a horrible sickly, syrupy taste. In short, shit!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I know it’s cool to hate Spanish and Portuguese beers, and usually I do. This got so many extra style points for its appearance, though. Maybe the best looking lager I’ve ever seen. Crystal clear, golden, with a huge foamy head that left good lacing. More surprisingly, its carbonation released a small stream of bubbles forever, like a great champagne. Otherwise nothing great. Sweet malts, floral hops. Thin.
