I got this bottle in a trade with jwc215. Thanks Joe!
This pours a clear deep amber with a 2 finger head of foam. There's some lacing and head retention is good. This is a nice looking brew.
The smell has notes of caramel malt, grain, and some fruit.
The taste is interesting. A sweetish taste greets my first sip that looks to be a combination of caramel malt and some sweet fruit...wild cherry? Also, I sense a wee bit of a cinnamon presence. Mid palate on, I get a little bit of an earthy flavour that recedes and is replaced by hop bitterness that is fairly lightly done but it's nicely done. It makes *me* want to take another sip. ;^)
Mouthfeel is lightish as is the carbonation. This is quite good and easy drinking. My first brew from Portugal and I'm quite pleased with it.

11.2oz bottle-pours a foamy light tan head and reddish amber color. Aroma is light/medium malt-caramel, that lager smell (yeast?) with slight sharpness. Taste is sweet light/medium malt-caramel, some husk, some hops presence, the yeast has moved to the background. Medium body. Nice. Thanks JWC215 for sharing.
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Sweet. drinkable but very boring, no appealing taste and aroma. good when very cold I guess
