Now I’m trying to be kind here but when you’re faced with only one of two widely available beers in Portugal it becomes very difficult. Especially considering the other one (Sagres) is even worse than this heavily filtered, sweetened and bland beer. Sure, it’s refreshing when it’s 30 degrees and it’s the only cold drink available, but come on, a few hop flowers perhaps or even a handful more malt? Flavoured water.

Bock must mean "vegetal" in Portuguese. Hey at least it’s got flavour. Without a doubt the best beer I’ve yet to try from Portugal. estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle and draft. Draft beer was better. Golden color with some foam. Taste was common taste of eurolager. jamesie1857 (1980) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
330ml bottle with a meal in Nandos. Nothing inspiring about this, a rather insipid beer with a dull after taste. Not Super. Not a Bock. tmrmwel (2269) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a finger thick head. Not very much aroma on this one, except a whiff of hay and a touch of spicy hops. Flavour is sour with lemon, some zesty hoppiness and notes of caramel trying to balance it all.

Bottle and draft. In Lajes, Azores Portugal. I thought MAYBE this would be a surprise. Well the word “Bock” in the title fooled me. Standard piss color, light white head in mug. Aromas was sweet musky malts with slight grassy hops. I can try to be nice about the taste but… It tasted like sweaty feet. Not pleasant at all. Idiosynkrasie (7952) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma. Taste is slightly metallic with grainy undertones. fmsb (8) - PORTUGAL - JUL 17, 2012 does not count
drinkable, strong flavour but refreshing at the same time. definetly the best portuguese beer. chrisv10 (18495) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle. Clear yellow with small white head. Aroma is malt, grainy and maize. Flavour is malt, grainy, maize, sweet, hop and a little bitter. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2012
Dorée, col blanc épais.
Arôme de grains, malt et houblons nobles avec léger profile herbacé et fleuri.
En bouche, houblons amer avec un profile type pour ce style, sèche et pétillante sur note de grains. Pointe d’épice houblonnée finissant sur ce côté type métallique. Pointe de houblon fleuri, le tout restant dans la moyenne sans convaincre.
