1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from Intermarche, Lagoa, Algarve. Artisanal Highland product, yes? Gold with a fast diminishing scummy tuft of foam. Aroma of envelope and refuse. Flavour has appreciable bitterness besides the corn-flavoured native offerings; soap, lemon hints, icing sugar, poison death. Olive oil soap and conifer traces. Dead in seconds in the sun. Sits very comfortably amongst the borderline drinkable/undinkable pale lagers of Portugal.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Most of a 500ml can. ABV listed as 5%. Clear yellow color, thin white head. Bit of lace. Smooth carbonation, dry texture. Basic (but clean and inoffensive) lager taste - white bread, basically. Not much taste, just a moderate sweetness, and light savory and salt. A pretty solid lager, made like a lager should be. Drinkable and refreshing, good for a 100F day. I wouldn’t mind revisiting this, and it’s drinkable enough to justify a whole 0.5L

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can - 500mL. Listed at 5% ABV. Gold pour with a short white head. Sweet nose with corn, cereal and flavored seltzer water. Taste is much better with soft sweet malt notes, faint hops, light corn and cereal grains. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more cereal, sweet malt, light corn and faint hops. Not terrible.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A bright white head tops a medium gold colored body. This has a grainy and meaty nose with some pear hints. This tastes fairly dry like hay with some raw grain. There is also some bread crust. Actually this is interesting with just enough going on to keep it drinkable. Pleasant and clean.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL can, bottom marked 30 SEP 14, mine at 5% abv. Nose sweet and vibrantly corny, pours rich clear golden with a sudsy off-white head. Watery taste semi-dry at first (but has something of a sweet residual) with corn and oily, tumbling malt; touch of dust and spice, citric and noble hops on the edges, mostly clean and manages to strike a nice middle. Alcohol well-integrated but what is detectable is a bit harsh. Still, I like it well enough for its aspirations.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is sweetish/grainy malts, beery and a hint of a chemical/off element. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, fruit/cider and a mildly tart finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
16 oz. can. My beer guy joked that they had this back in stock. But, tonight, I wanted to be 20 years old and in Scotland again. My study abroad experience in Scotland was a study in beer. I was young, on a budget, and needed to get drunk. It pours a pale yellow. Thick white styrofoam head. Tennent’s is an institution in Scotland. But anything properly Scottish was an institution. They had a promotion in October that would include a Halloween DVD with every 4 pack of tall boys sold. Suffice it to say: I acquired a few of those DVDs. The problem being my computer would only play those region DVDs a certain number of times. I remember the Uni shoppe up on the cobble stone hill with all our alcoholic goodies and dirty magazines. Aroma of corn, mild alcohol, some hay. Oh, the nights out in bars inside renovated 14th century churches. Tennent’s was on tap. Ironically, Bud was often a premium beer in some of the places I’d go. Other places had casks of beers I ignorantly drank down. If I knew the names of those beers now I’d probably be amazed and ashamed of how little I knew then. Flavor: we remember things so much better than they actually were, don’t we?

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée-jaune et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de maïs et de pain avec des notes de légumes bouillis et de houblon herbeux. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle accompagné de notes de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain blanc avec des petites notes de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées et traces de gazon). Post-goût court, composé de quelques traces de houblon.
