2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Old BA rate - bottle)
Pours a clear fizzy yellow gold; with a half-finger white frothy head. Mild skunky import aroma; adjunct sweetness; some hop bitterness toward the end. Basic adjunct lager flavors overall; a little maltier than most in the style; some drying hops toward the end....meh. Thinner to medium; actually a bit heavier for the style; vibrant carbonation. Not good, not too bad when used to wash down some Portuguese food.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
"Super Bock"!! Pours a clear straw yellow with a big white foamy head. Aroma smells as if a skunk just sprayed me. Very potent. Taste is terrible, well, if I was in Portugal on vacation, sitting on the beach looking at the scenery walking past, I wouldn’t mind getting wrecked on this. But sitting on my back porch I’m not cool with this.

Bottle Fernando’s Coloane Island, Macau Pours straw yellow with thin white head. Light bodied, fruit accents, not unpleasant in the mouth. Quite pleasant on a hot day beside Hac Sa beach.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Bright and clear with a very flat even white ehad and ahoney colour with grainy aromas typical of a pale lager. Quite refreshing to taste and would go down nice on a hot day but it does lack a little bit in the body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at some pseudo bar in Marne La Vallee, France.
Pours an average semi-lively yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is watery corn and buttery hops. Flavor is slightly sweet corn with a marshmallow finish. Tingly on the tongue. Not too shabby; this beer deserves a better rating. It’s not god-like but it’s not Medussa, either.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
25cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Clear orange with a small diminishing white head, looks like piss. Aroma is skunk, grassy hops, slight sweet corn. Flavor is almosty sickeningly sweet, with barely-there hops undertones. Palate is thin and sticky with very little carbonation. Finish is, well... what do you call the sensation when you put a penny in your mouth? This beer is comeplete trash. Drainpour.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled in a 12oz bottle. Pours like a traditional southern european pale lager. White lacey head. Aroma is of terrible maltiness. Quality is not there as the ratings show. It does drink decently however it really offers nothing.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 33 cl from La Maladière Centre in Neuchâtel (CH). Golden blond, little foam and fine crackling. Nose syrupy, dishes and cardboard. Already too sweet at the first sip, it does’nt improve, however, it becomes sickening. Lack of bitterness, diluted and sticky corn syrup. Beer heavy and without interest.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
I feel cheated! :-( The name is totally misleading; I bought this under the impression that it was some sort of bock beer, although I should’ve been cautious seeing the above-normal clear, light color inside... Instead of a Super Bock, all I got was a Super Boring strong lager without any nice characteristics. Buuhuu. If this was the U.S, I’d sue their asses for misguiding advertisement or something, haha! :-P
