On tap. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is of sweet malt, vegetables and pickles. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of cooked vegetables. Who brews such a crap?

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.

I tried this beer on October 30, 2007 at 'Smokeless Joe's" in Toronto. The beer poured a translucent gold into the glass with very little head. What head there was...was white. The aroma was almost non-existent. The mouthfeel was very this, with high carbonation. The flavour was very grassy, with some bitterness.

Sampled at THT June tasting. Clear pale golden with a white head. Boiled corn, sugar and that is it. Not even worth the 150 characters required for this review.

Simple, bland and boring but drinkable, but not interesting drinkable, a bit of a malty character in there aswell, but not enough to do anything for me.

12 oz bottle.
Pours out clear golden yellow, with a small off-white head.
Light carbonation.
Aroma is mostly malt, grain and wet cardboard.
Flavor is malty, slightly sweet, grain.
A little sourness on the finish.
Better than BMC, but not by much.Don't think I'll be buying this again.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color lager with a nice bug white foamy head. Aroma is pretty bland with a light touch of skunkyness, which isn’t surprising considering the mileage it had to do before reaching home. Taste of crisp hops is pretty subtle with a faint malt presence. I had a whole lot worse but I definitely had much better beer.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watching Vikings 4x01. Very corny, with a strong unpleasant bitterness that reminds me a cruzasco although less herbal

It poured straw yellow with a very thin head that very rapidly disappeared to nothing, giving it a flat look. In fact, I had this at different places (when I went to Portugese restaurants) and times to make sure that it just wasn't old.
There was not much of an aroma. There were maybe some attempts at a hoppy scent, but it was masked by a watery alcohol flavor. It didn't smell terrible, just not right.
The taste was bland. Nothing necesarily bad in the taste, just the complete lack of one.
The mouthfeel was disappointing because of the lack of any flavor. I thought that maybe it could be a session beer on a hot summer day, but there are many better examples of this style that taste better.
It didn't leave much of an aftertaste, but that is because it lacked flavor to begin with. It seems that they could do something, add hoppy favors or some fruity flavors, or something to add taste.
Next time I go to a Portugese restaurant, I'll stick to Sangria, or find a different Portugese beer that has taste.
