Review: Can of SuperBock Pale Lager 5.2%ABV

SuperBock, the football special. I can see why it is popular on the terraces, as it looks damn good, is relatively strong and goes down well. Its also quite cheap, which always appeals. Its a player alright.

This beer pours a crystal clear golden colour with a huge white head on top, which was very frothy. It is quick to settle, with little lacing.

The aroma is faint and gentle, some grains, malts and some light hints of grassy hops. Not a bad taste, a mildly sweet refreshing lager that hits the throat lovely and there is a nice bitter and sour aftertaste that lingers for a short while. It’s a very easy beer to drink.

Bottle from colonial spirits
Light golden color with a smallish frothy white head that is fed with a decent stream of carb bubbles. Aromas of bready pilsner malt and a hint of floral hops. The flavor is bready malt with a light sugary sweetness. Slight mineral and a faint gritty mouthfeel. Not horrible.

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 . . .

I only had a little bit of this, but I liked it better than the Sagres. My sister said the exact opposite, so it is a personal preference thing.

Aroma (3.5): Smells decent enough for the style.
Appearance (4): Nice golden color. Just like a lager should be.
Taste (3.5): Not much to speak of, but you get a little malt and some hop taste. Nothing too much, but it is what is probably should be.
Palate (3.5): No real complaints, nothing to write home about either.

Appearance: Golden and watery with a small, white head which disappears fairly quickly.
Aroma: No hops, bread and slight alcoholic smell.
Taste: Fresh, light, crisp and grainy. Mild cereal taste which lingers after swallowing. Not too interesting as most commercial lagers usually are.
Overall: Very refreshing on a hot summer day, light bodied beer with a crisp flavour. One of my favourite lagers.

Popping the top yields a crispy yet adjunct waft. On the pour this brew is pale straw colour with a nonexistent head. On the taste there is good mouthfeel, balanced with adjunct malts and slight bitter hoppiness with a fading similar aftertaste. Refreshing but not overly flavorful.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B). Bottle 25cl. AROMA: sweet grainy aroma and medium-low hop aroma. APPEARANCE: very clear golden straw color with average persistance white head. TASTE: medium-low grainy flavour with no hop flavour and medium-low bitterness. no fruitiness and no diacetyl. Balance towards malty and sweet aftertaste. PALATE: light body (maybe from high dosage of adjuncts - corn and rice). medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a light, refreshing average bulk lager.
