Cristal Preta is the second runner bland of Unicer and is sold with a lower price than the company main product (Superbock).

Appearance: clear with a deep amber color. Beige frothy head with a moderately low size that seldom persists (some lacing though).
Aroma: roasted malt aroma.
Taste: confirms the aroma with some toffee notes.
Mouthfeel: dry, strong carbonation, low alcoholic strength and a thin body.
Finish: slightly bitter and kind of short.

Overall: watery, not offensive but not worthwhile. Probably my last one.
