3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
For some reason, when I was traveling thru Portugal I was under the impression that Tagus was some local low rent brew. Then I saw the label which says "Cerveja de Puro Malte" and that got my attention. It’s not bad at all! Pours with a small white head and some nice lace. Nice grainy, bittersweet, beery nose. Medium to light body, but not too thin. Not twiggy or anything. Refreshing. Nice bright pale gold color. Clean taste and slight lingering aftertaste. I brought this one home with me from Lisbon. Cheers!

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2006 First let me say that Tagus is brewed in Portugal by Cereuro,a company from the Sumol group.Its is not brewed in the Netherlands but Grolsch provided the expertise.That said,I think that this is one of the best beers we can find in Portugal. Although it is not a bitter as I would like.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish white head. The aroma is yeasty, malty and dry and the flavour is dryly yeasty and chemical. Overall a poorish beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze in Brigg. Gold, moderate shortlived white head and moderate condition. Distant low graininess in the nose, quite full and malty in the mouth with a slight toffee note and some gentle grassy hoppiness that turns bitter in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a small head. Aromas are sweet grain and lemon with metal. Flavours are bitter grain with thin caramel malts and metal. Has some lemon zest sourness. Far too much carbonation. Still, its drinkable.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A golden coloured beer, nose a little week but a tad sweet, taste also sided towards the sweet, tasted thinner and weaker than the actual strength. A very clean tasting beer but nothing exciting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden with a slim white head. Sweet malty and grainy aroma. Taste is sweet and malty with some light hops in the finish. Light watery mouthfeel. Fairly clean and crisp. Sort of OK.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 33cl. What a surprise! Not the beer but the fact that it’s brewed by Grolsch. It’s not mentioned anywhere in the bottle. It’s a very recent beer in Portugal and it’s having a hard time trying to conquer a little % of the market. Unfortunatelly, Sagres and Super Bock control 95% of beer sales in Portugal. And Tagus isn’t worse than these two. Ok, to be honest it isn’t also better. What can i say.... Yellow colour, nice white head. Slightly sweet although very refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Yellow colour, mediumsized foamy head. Sweet malty aroma. Caramellish malty flavour with a bit hoppy finish. Boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) Beautiful, fully golden with a nice, dense head. Presumably an all-malt beer. Contains quite some malty sweetness. Not much bitterness though. Actually a neat little beer that comes in a cute little bottle. 300603
