2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Edinburgh. Pale grassy lager with some sweetness, and some slight maltiness. Pretty standard lager, could do much worse.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Portugalís national standard lager since 1940, with snow white, thick and frothy, even slightly gushing head supported by very strong, fizzy carbonation; colour a cristal clear, pale golden blonde. Very weak aroma (even at higher temperature): some corn sweetishness, hint of white bread, iron, field flowers and a whiff of grassy hops. Sweetish in the onset, corn, a tiny bit bready, very metallic with the expected strong carbonation; finish is mostly the lingering malt and corn sweetness, insufficiently balanced by a trace of floral and grassy hop bitterishness. In all: thirst-quenching as you can expect from the style, but just another generic standard pale lager, with too much corn sweetness and too metallic. I wonder when the craft beer revolution is going to reach Portugal - but considering the fact that it is already penetrating in its neighbour Spain, I expect something to happen there too within the coming years.

Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of roasted grain, maize, mineral and a subtle herbal spiciness. Taste of maize, grass, sweet bread, mineral and spice. Moderate carbonation and a thin, watery texture. A sweet, cardboard finish. Donít like the aftertaste at all.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 1 litre bottle (with twist top!) into glass. Pours amber with many fine bubbles. Nose is very sweet though faint. Watery body with a bit of spritz. Aftertaste is bad, lingering vegetables, tin and a hint of bubblegum. Not enjoyable. Iím drinking this ice-cold, canít imagine how bad it is when it warms.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, gold, with a frothy, creamy-white head.
Distinct lemon, grain aroma.
Taste is a little soapy, dull grains, very light caramel malt.
Sweet and creamy, but bland...
Not bad, just lacking in brightness.
It just sort of ..."is what it is".....

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale straw holding moderate carbonation topped by a fizzy off-white head. The head shrinks to an uneven porous layer rapidly and leaves no lacing. The nose is grainy with subtle malts and a touch of yeasty wet soil. The taste is also subtle on the malts with an aqueous feel and a decent bitterness. Typical pale lager with no surprising features.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle had a "mini" on its label. Content of 0,25 cl. Another of these countless names for basically the same thing... Cheap mass produced lager beer. Donít expect more than that.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Can from the Regal (JDW), Cambridge. Deep orange with a small to medium white head. Smell - ugh. Urine, malt, sour lemon and must. Taste is an improvement. Bitter and sulphurous with a corn syrup sweet finish. Pleasant enough body but this is all around bad. Didnít even come close to finishing the can.
