While I'm on a Portuguese streak, let's review the flagship beer of the Azores Islands. As the beer is brewed in the capital city Ponta Delgada on the main island Sao Miguel, this beer is always very cheap and very fresh, your go-to pale lager while visiting the islands. Now as much as I love everything about the Azores, there is nothing "special" about this beer. It looks nice with a golden color and always fresh foamy head and lacing, taste is pale malt, sweet grain, a bit of grassy hops. Mouthfeel is thin but not unpleasant, quaffable at a waterfront cafe. Just a lighter pale lager, if you get it as an export bottle I doubt it's anything good or memorable, but on it's home islands it's always fresh and refreshing.

Two Euro’s for a draught half-litre on the Azore Islands, I had a couple near the cruise terminal and bought a small 25cl bottle home to review at leisure, which is what I am doing now. Poured into an old stemmed Konig-Pilsner glass. Looks like a lager/pilsner, clear, bright and golden with a white crown. Malt sweetness in both the nose and taste, refreshing enough and I like the sweetness. Nothing ’especial’ in my eyes but a good solid (if a little sweet for some) lager/pilsner .

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a dense, white head leaving lacings. Weak, fruity aroma with some grass and hay. Grains too. Thin on the palate, almost watery, with sufficient carbonation. Weak flavor too, with some bitterness chiming in towards the end. It’s not tasting or smelling bad in any way, although there’s some dms, but it’s superbly boring and uninteresting. Probably quenching though. 130928

Gu li färgen med vitt skum. Doftar svagt av majsig malt, lite unket gräs söt frukt. Smakar tunt och vattnigt av majs malt, frukt liten sötma. Trist.

A rather normal lager to be drunk in a warm day by the beach. I like it though because it pours smoothly into the glass and shows some life of its own even after a while.

250 ml Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are too light. Not my kind of beer. I don’t recommend it.
