2.1/5 rDev -26.3%
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.

1.81/5 rDev -36.5%
Golden color with apparent carbonation and a thick two fingers head with medium retention and leaving good laces.
A very unpleasant aroma with notes of corn, lots of sulphur, cooked vegetables, booze and lemony notes.
Flavor improves just a bit, not very sweet with hints of herbal and floral hops, which is good but stop right there. Notes of butter, non-malted cereals, sulphur, mild spicy yeast and cooked vegetables. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
The only positive side of it is to have nice looks and identifiable hops, but that is shadowed by some annoying flaws in both aroma and taste.
