Bottle. Pale yellow with white small head, doughy aroma, slightly sour fruity taste, average carbonation, long finish. Nothing special to report

Typical lager appearance, typical cheap lager taste - I do not want to waste too mich time to describe it; what I definitely want ro note is that why the hell someone gives the name ’Super Bock’ to a simple lager?!?!?

It continues to amaze me how adjunct lager is the most popular style of beer in the world. Every country makes a brand that’s mild and brewed with corn; though some are better than others. I’m sure Portugal has better beer than Super Bock – at least I’d like to think so.

I poured a mini 200ml (6.8oz) bottle into a drinking glass. It had an expiration date of 4/2016 and cost $0.99 ($0.15 per ounce). Thanks to Mike for this bottle!

Appearance: Surprisingly dark golden hue with consistent carbonation visible. Body is completely clear. Pours to a small, white, soapy head which mostly evaporates and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Typical light strike skunk despite the amber bottle. Otherwise a light sweetness; some creamed corn; no hop presence but I’ve smelled much worse.

Taste: There’s not much to describe about the palette of this brew. It’s quite similar to every other adjunct lager. Flavor isn’t feather-light, but there’s definitely not a lot to speak of. Slight corn taste, but not especially sweet. The skunky aroma does not translate to the palette. The corn taste seems a bit syrupy, but is in no way cloying. Some spicy hops would be nice. The only attribute this beer really has going for it is the fact it could have been much worse. This is tolerable but not enjoyable.

Drinkability: Super Bock weighs in at 5.2% ABV, which is typical for the general style. The mouthfeel is light, but not paper thin. Crisp at first, but the carbonation dies down quickly. Though not refreshing while in the mouth, I appreciate the fact it finishes almost completely clean.

RATING: 3/10

(3) I remember having this beer with my brother in Portugal. We would play pool on the beach side and then drink SuperBock after SuperBock. Europe cup in 2004.

Geen dorstlesser of doordrinker. Moutig, maar vooral iets te zoetig, plakkerig voor een pils.

Others have suggested this is the best beer in Portugal. It doesn’t have much competition. How do they make something of 5.2% so bland? As for the Monde Selection competition, I refer you to Wikipedia. "For the 2014 selection, the entry fee is 1,150 Euro per product " and "80% of the products entered by Japanese companies received an award". It doesn’t mention Portugal but I think it says it all!
