Soft carbonation, medium to full body. Fruity flavor with a decent bitterness. Pine cone notes, tropical fruits and some bread and yeast. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness.

Cerbier (272) - - OCT 22, 2014
0,3l Flasche. Orangegelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Es duftet nach orange, leicht malzig; schmeckt auch so. Angenehm süffig zum Schluß eine angenehme Hopfenbittere. Das beste portugiesische Bier das ich kenne.

bartlebier (1955) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2014
33cl bottle bb 02/2015 courtesy of bastarda lusitania, obrigado. What a cute and mean sardine! Wheaty orange pour with soapy head. Shy aroma of thickened citrus marmelade, some plastic, alcohol and boiled dandelion showing up. Elegant, fine carbonation helps to transport a monodimensional zesty bitterness (orange, tangerine) into hyperpresence over soggy, wheaty pale malts. Resinous, dry pithy finish. Obvious Liberty Ale/Cascade-style APA parameters are there in the mix, only to my tastes insufficiently tied into a balanced malt base to make a truly enjoyable drinking experience: the ponderous, vegetable root bitterness gets harsher with each sip. Really missing a decent malt base and elegant aromas here. - Hats off to this start-up microbrewery for jumpstarting the West Coast Iberian chapter of the European hop revolution at its dozy outer fringe, but surely you’d expect even post-Salazarians weaned on Super Bock to be sensible to the fact that even revolutionaries end up craving balance in the long run?
