3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 draft. effervescent clear gold. twangy nose presents soft but just pungent hop aroma. clean and bright flavor, zesty but has a plastic oiliness, leaving film on the tongue and palate. honestly it could pass as a pilsner. it’s crisp and has just enough hop vibrancy to work. doesn’t have any apparent adjunct aromas or flavors. simple, yes, but also bright and clean.

Awesome hop smell, like top pisleners. Very lightweight with slightly bitter finish. Refreshing drink during hot Portugese autumn. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2009
Chopp: pale and corkscrewing with fizz under a fine white collar. Nose of toasted cereals, sack cloth, beeswax. Flavour paper, cereals, a touch more pilsy bite, bread and honey than standard SB.
Bottle: pillowy head to a thin white film. More bread and hop bite than standard SB, but also potato, corn and card. DrNosha (2516) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015

33 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is mild cornish and grassy hops. Light fruity flavoured. Mild sweet fruity and cornish impression. Going bitter and dry into the finish.

200ml bottle, consumed on 29 November 2010. Best before 31 August 2011. Pale gold colour. Like the Cerveja Cristal sampled immediately before, this was a surprisingly clean and drinkable lager. Not a lot else to say but no obviously "off" flavours or heavy adjunct character. Pleasant enough. Why the Portuguese like to put these quaffing lagers into such tiny bottles is something of a mystery to me.

A little more carbonated than the usual Super Bock, nothing much. good plain lager for a sunny day on the balcony or served with sea food. Cthulhu (1034) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - JUL 9, 2015
I would say that this beer tastes exactly like a Super Bock but with a bit less maize and bit more malt. jamestulloch (4217) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Keg at Gramacho Clubhouse. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of metal and grain. Flavour is darker and maltier than most mass produced Lagers but there’s an off putting sweetcorn note. Metallic, bitter finish. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Nice to swig on a sunny day in Portugal but definitely not one to savour. Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle 20 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Sweet malty nose. Medium body, malt, sulphur and cardboard with a dryish, bitter finish. 010510
