Head goes down fast, usual lagerish look.

Aroma is refreshing, hoppy and fresh.

Very fizzy, like sparkling water. Quite refreshing, though not much in the way of flavor to comment on. However if I was in Portugal on a hot day in the sun, this would be very welcome.

Nothing unpleasant and very crisp and fresh. Though it really does mostly taste like fizzy water...

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

An offering from a Portuguese-American in law, this one's fairly crisp, light-bodied and full of pretty refreshing lime-wheat type of flavor. Okay stuff.

Poured into pint glass. It pours a clear golden amber with a one-finger, snow-white head and lacing. It has virtually no smell; just a little grain. It's like drinking a light beer; there is little, if any, flavor: just some grass and grain. It's also very watery and light. It's nicely carbonated and has a low ABV so it is easy to drink but it simply has no flavor. Overall, I've tried to be fair with this lager but it simply isn't memorable. Perhaps having it on draught in Portugal would yield a different experience.

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?

Tastes like a 2 or 3 if you found this in the states (and opted to buy it?), but quickly approaches 4 if you are drinking one at a beach bar in Portugal sitting in a bean bag chair. They must have brewed this beer specifically for that situation.

Not a bad tasting lager. I imagine it tastes much better on tap on a hot Portuguese day rather than from a can in wet and windy Britain.
