I think it's the shape of the bottle and thoughts of sun, sand and palm trees which make this beer a seller vs. how good it is. I don't dislike it but just not a top choice for me.

Nose is slightly stale,sweet grassy. Taste is slight straw faint malt, very, very sweet in the short slightly metallic finish. Mouthfeel is fine. Not a good beer.

Looks like a typical lager should - golden, clear color and a couple of fingers of white head with a medium retention.
The aroma is moderate with just some notes of malts and grains filling your nose.
The taste follows the nose. Sweet beginning followed by a nicely balancec body, ending with a pleasant hoppy bitterness.
Drinkable, enjoyable, smooth. Extra great when chilled.

This beer has excellent sentimental appeal, and is usually my beer of choice when choosing a few cans from the local newsagent.
I’m testing the clickable aroma / appearance / taste / palate prompts for this review, so here goes: light sweetness, lightly bitter, clear, sparkling, pale, minimal head, light body, thin feel, lively.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite beers overall, a lot more hearty than I expected. Dark-flavored, fairly tangy, but really well-suited with a meal of almost any kind.
To me, this beer tastes a lot different than it smells--it smells a lot lighter than the deep, rich taste of the stuff. A good swig for any occasion, any time of year, day or night.

33cl bottle from beercascais. Color is gold. Head is thin and white. Body is medium and quite smooth. Not bad. Taste is light sweet. Aroma is pretty much uninteresting..

Clear bright golden beer; small white head, fast gone. Dry malts, almonds, bitter almonds, all faintly so. Sweet, sugary, fresh malts of poor quality. Light, light, light. Worthless, unless maybe under the Carabbean sun? Txs for the rating to whomever brought it over!
