So I'm a beer guy and went to Portugal and Spain. Was on a structured trip, so didn't get to get to anywhere with very good beer. But I got to sample the BMC of their countries . . .

So this was pretty standard lager. Not bad, but nothing I'd go to great lengths to find now that I'm home.

Aroma (3): Smells kinda of beer.
Appearance (4): Nice golden color. Just like a lager should be.
Taste (3): It is better than Bud Light I suppose. A little malt and a little bit of hop. Not much to speak of really.
Palate (3.5): No real complaints, nothing to write home about either.

Appearance: Light, blonde and very liquidy/watery. Thick head which soon becomes watery / bubbly.
Aroma: Subtle rice smell, beery, no hops.
Taste: Grainy, typical lager taste with no floral attributes. Crispy and clean with a kick which you can feel in your throat with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Overall: Typical lager which is great on a hot day. Easy to drink loads! I enjoy the crispy clean flavour.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B). Bottle 20cl. AROMA: very subtle grainy aroma. no hop aroma. slight DMS present. APPEARANCE: very clear pale straw color with average persistance white head. TASTE: low grainy flavour with no sweetness altough it has corn. no hop flavour and no bitterness discernible. no fruitiness and no diacetyl. a bit on the "watery" side. PALATE: very light body (maybe from high dosage of adjuncts - corn and rice). medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a very light, watery pale lager just to kill your thirst.

Em cinco, quatro, três, dois, e um...on to the beer:

This national lager has a light golden color, a translucent body, and a short head formed on top. In less than a minute of the pour, much of the head has dissipated into a lace. The aroma has a strong boiled corn note. There's a strange fruity note as well. That's the adjunct lager I know.

The taste is slightly more palatable than the aroma. It's pretty clean, which helps this beer more than being a big bite of boiled corn and DMS. Still, the overall flavor is weak. In fact, the taste is "perfumy" in character, being where the taste doesn't seem to come through until halfway through a sip. It has a woody element, a slight ester note, and a seltzer-like carbonation which attempts to provide the bitterness.

That was a weak effort. Now I see why their Port is highly revered.
