330 ml. bottle sampled. Received as a gift. Totally clear pale golden, creamy white head. Nose is stale wet corn, urinal wet grains, field after rain, vegetables, rotting paper, stale starch lager. Taste is overly sugary stale corn paper paste, butter, sugary vegetables, vegetable oil. Body is vegetable oil, sugar, corn. Not good but as far as industrial pale lagers go, this one is definitely not the worst, strange vegetable oil sweetness works partially to its advantage, not too much vegetables.

Vestergaard (2004) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle thanks 2 ma brotha'. Pours a clear yellow-golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity sweet, slight peachy, lots of pilsner malts, pretty sweet, slight floral hops. Taste is sparkling and refreshing, but sweet and light malty. Bitter finish, high carb, light body. Not too bad for a pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

While I'm on a Portuguese streak, let's review the flagship beer of the Azores Islands. As the beer is brewed in the capital city Ponta Delgada on the main island Sao Miguel, this beer is always very cheap and very fresh, your go-to pale lager while visiting the islands. Now as much as I love everything about the Azores, there is nothing "special" about this beer. It looks nice with a golden color and always fresh foamy head and lacing, taste is pale malt, sweet grain, a bit of grassy hops. Mouthfeel is thin but not unpleasant, quaffable at a waterfront cafe. Just a lighter pale lager, if you get it as an export bottle I doubt it's anything good or memorable, but on it's home islands it's always fresh and refreshing.

Two Euro’s for a draught half-litre on the Azore Islands, I had a couple near the cruise terminal and bought a small 25cl bottle home to review at leisure, which is what I am doing now. Poured into an old stemmed Konig-Pilsner glass. Looks like a lager/pilsner, clear, bright and golden with a white crown. Malt sweetness in both the nose and taste, refreshing enough and I like the sweetness. Nothing ’especial’ in my eyes but a good solid (if a little sweet for some) lager/pilsner .
