Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate sweet grass aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a below average beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is grainy, with some sugariness and faint grassy hops notes. Sweetish cereal flavor with malt, some corn hints and later a slightly metallic/chemical bitterness. Light-bodied. Nothing good, but at least not very offensive.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light golden color with a moderate white head. Some light grains and noble hops in the aromas. The hops are more grassy than floral. Very smooth feel, but not exactly what I might expect from a lager. Grainy start with a sugary light caramel component. Very little bitterness from a hops perspective. A mild metallic finish and linger.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is how things generally go for me. I finally come across a Portugese beer (at the Binny’s in Willowbrook, IL), and it’s not on the database. Thanks go to the folk in the Forums who found a home for it. It pours a lively, pale yellow body with a two-fingered head that rapidly dwindles down to a film and leaves only tidbits of slippery lace. The aroma is light - sweet creamed corn, a suggestion of malt, and a dried grass bitterness. The flavor is light but really sweet - corn syrup and pale malt. The bitterness turns somewhat metallic in the finish. After finding the beer a home, I think I’ll leave it there and not repeat this one.

Heheh, not many of you have tasted this pale american type lager, from portugal? Smells a little like american malt liquor to me. No head, sweeter olfactory. Looks like pale lager, eh? Slightly rude initial lager impressions. My - catty. Seems Ok after a few slugs, tho weird piercing industrial processed funny-ness linger. Goodly CO2 probably makes up for that. Holland type beer, well, I’ll have to look into that.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong aroma is surprisingly sweet and syrupy, having strong tones of honey and caramel. It pours a fairly typical clear yellow with not a lot of head. Flavor has a malty core and a strong overtone of honey. Is this mead? It has some subtle fruitiness, but not much in the way of hops to balance the sweetness. Smooth texture seems a bit on the thin side and has minimal fizz. Well, give the Portuguese a chance - with a little practice (and maybe some training from Belgian monks or U.S. craft brewers) they’ll produce something top-notch.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
6-pack of 33cL bottles - $5.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, dark golden body with a brief, white head.
Smell: Sweetish cereal notes, a hint of lackluster grains, a spritz of chemicals, and an unclean, soiled scent of expired apple juice.
Taste: Lightly sweet, tangy maltiness with a bit of barley husks. It has that icky chemically accent you get in malt liquors. A half-eaten apple dug out of a nearby trashcan. Low, low hint of herbal hops with a very low amount of bitterness. Drying, flat finish with a little bit of lingering unhappiness.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Not recommended, friends. Grody in taste and lifeless and essentially flat on the tongue is not at all what I (or anyone in their right mind) wants from a pale lager. Even if you’re going for ’cheap’ there are slightly better offerings available, in that they’re not quite as unpleasant tasting and are sufficiently carbonated.
