As if it was bad enough that there wasn’t anything else to drink but this, it also tasted like metal. Aside from the metal, there was a sweet hay flavor. I couldn’t stand it anymore and shared it with the sink.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours pale golden with high head. Aroma is malts and alcohol, some hops. Taste is sweet and a bit watery with malts, and sweet corn. Meh.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
A Mexican beer at a Mexican restaurant, that I ordered because there was nothing else except Corona on the menu. There’s really little to report on this beer -- there’s no real aroma or flavor, just a general taste of sweet water with a bit of hop bitterness. Bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355ml bottle into schooner glass. From Porters, Bexley. Pours pale amber with sweet malt nose. Head of white bubbles disappears immediately leaving behind a glass of fizzy yellow/brown water. Harsh carbonation, no taste. Finish is a tiny touch of metal and old chewing gum. Very little to differentiate this from ’savings brand’ mineral water apart from the colour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Malty, paper, hops smell. Light pissy appearance. Taste is hay, grain, malt, very little hop.. Medium-high carbonation, but easily drinkable. Somewhat strange aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Brass Monkey. As crystal clear as they come and pretty much pale golden in the glass. A nice lacing white head the top though. Smells surprisingly decent. A little fruit sour, there’s tones of sweet corn and a little caramel sweetness. Mild. Well, it’s a fizzing one on the carbonation for sure, and it’s quite thin oily, near watery in the mouth. This was a bit of a letdown in the taste. Boring pale lager with a little bit of biscuits sweetness. Not a horrible one though. 10.06.2015

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very clear light golden color. About one finger white head. Very short lived. No retention, very light lacing.
Aroma is light. I smell corn and light malt. I smell some metallic stuff, and maybe mineral water. Not a lot going on.
Taste is corn and light malts. Somewhat sweet Crispix cereal taste. Some hops, but barely. There’s that metallic thing again.
Mouthfeel is light bodied. Watery and dry. Good carbonation really tickles the tongue. Barely bitter. Metallic thing pops up again. It’s very drinkable, and that’s the best part of it.
Overall, it’s alright. It’s not as good as I expected it to be. No, can’t say I’d buy this again. You offer it to me, and I’m gonna drink it, but I’m not gonna buy it. No, wouldn’t recommend it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Olhão 10/7 2016. 35,5 cl bottle from Jumbo Supermarket. Very yellow label with all kinds of maritime paraphernalia to assure me that this beer has a solid relation to the pacific. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam. Enthusiastic carbonation. Aroma is very sweet with notes of soap and glue. Not especially pleasant. Strong carbonation and watery palate. Taste is heavily sweet without much bitterness. I imagine that this could be perceived as a pleasure and a relief if you drink it in 42 celcius in the Sun. Otherwise do not bother.
