1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
An unlabeled bottle direct from the brewery thanks to M.A. Big ups! A pale sparkling gold pour, with a fizzy and short lived white fizz. Nose of pale malts, some straw, weak hops and grass. Tastes of weak sweet grains, faint hops, a bit of grass/hay. Pretty standard fare. Quick and fizzy. My understanding is that this will be available at Rei Dos Leitoes Portuguese restaurant in London very soon.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at Pepperwood Beer Festival. Pale yellow with a small white head. Standard mainstream pale lager aroma and flavour. No off-flavours, just really bland and really watery. Pretty much what you’d expect from a beer aimed at Toronto’s Portuguese sports bar market.
