No geral, lembra muito as lagers de massa brasileira, no entanto, o retrogosto é menos adstringente.

Jow (2207) - New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Big thanks to Andrew from work who stole some of his Portuguese father inlaws brew for me. Pours golden with white head. Nose is light malt and grass. Tastes of small malt, grass, grainy, light herbal, and semi sweet finish. Moderate bitterness. Drinkable and not half bad for the what it is. 70th county tick boo ya!

rjplumer (412) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Faint malt aroma. Almost no head with a clear deep amber color. Kind of mild malt caramel taste with some sweetness. Faint sourness in the finish but is very drinkable. This was a personal nod to my Portuguese heritage.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in my favorite chalice. Nada impressionate, I would say in Portuguese. A: Clear golden-yellow color with a big white head that dissipates quickly leaving very few lacings S: Not good. It’s a quite simple beer which, IMHO, should have a better smell of malts T: Not impressive too. Malts, basically. The medium bitter "hoppy" end helps it a bit M: Very light body with a medium to high carbonation D: Not impressive. To be avoided [ BA Review @ 7/3/2010 ]

corkyrory66 (648) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
Pale lager du Portugal à Vialonga de 5 % abv, qui emploie du malt d’orge et des céréales non maltées (maïs ou riz, selon la bonne volonté du brasseur… et donc le goût peut s’en trouver affecté !!! mais c’est ainsi …). Jolie couleur de canette, rouge métal, et opercule en papier alu qui bloque le dessus. Attention, on fait dans le détail … Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout assez lentes. Mousse qui fait un nappage blanc très correct. Arômes de malt, pain gris, riz, houblon. 1ère bouche à l’entame très douce sur le malt. 2ème sur le malt et légère pointe de piment rouge, pain gris. 3ème sur du riz et pain sec. Arrière-bouche courte. Longueur uniforme mais correcte. Finale sans objet. CONCLUSION : une bière de bonne qualité pour le genre, avec un peu d’originalité grâce au maïs ou au riz (selon la bonne volonté du brasseur …).

Taste in plain from Lisboa to Barcelona. This is the same beer than hundred of industrials lagers. Nothing to say but you can drink if it is cold.

Clear deep gold color with few small bubbles.medium sized white head. Light grainy malt nose. Medium sweet malt flavor. Dry bitter finish. Rather plain and pedestrian.

Benzai (8563) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, small to average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly grainy, lightly bitter. One of so many, can’t tell anything new but I guess this beer is exactly as it was intended.
