12 oz single. Typical pale golden, but with a nicer than usual thick bubbly/frothy white head. Aroma very subdued..but i get wiffs cereal/bread. Taste is very non-descript..some slight cereal, little earth at the end. Slight bitterness. Ok on the palate for style. Not too bad..no off flavours at least.

Settles to a clear, orangey amber colour with a small, pinky sized head that soon settles to a thin lacing.

Not too strong smelling but quite fruity. Pretty much standard for a run-of-the -mill pale lager with very mild grassy smell & some vague fruit aroma.

Like the smell, the flavour has all the hallmarks of a standard pale lager, being light & clean tasting with some grassy hops & a very mild bitter finish.

Light bodied & generally quite smooth, the beer has a mild tang to it when drank & is again standard for the style.

A really average although slightly fruity tasting pale lager, nothing to write home about here or to go out of your way to try.

Pours translucent gold with thin white head that doesn't retain well. Nose is tepid with some cooked vegetables, light skunk, and faint hop aromas. Palate is light in flavor and body, somewhat unpleasantly sharp, and has more than average hop bite for an adjunct style beer.

From a bottle, pours as clear gold with a thin white head that quickly dispersed. Really subtle aroma like an Corona or adjunct beer. Hops and Malt are nicely balanced, but there are also distracting corn, grass, and rice flavors. The carbonation makes for a refreshing beverage, but it's just OK as a beer.

A - Clear golden colour with a couple of centimetres of white head.
S - Grainy, slight floral, a bit metallic.
T - Sweet lager maltiness with some hoppiness.
M - Medium bodied with a medium to high mouthfeel.
D - Not too bad actually. I wouldn't buy it again unless I was in Portugal and needed a cold, refreshing beer for which it would do the drink.

This beer pours out a very pale yellow color with a small bright white head. Next to no aroma only a hint of graineyness. The taste has a light hop sharpness at the begining with a slight sweetness that comes in at the finish. Probably a decent cold drink on a hot day.

330ml bottle poured in my favorite chalice.

Nada impressionate, I would say in Portuguese.

A: Clear golden-yellow color with a big white head that dissipates quickly leaving very few lacings
S: Not good. It's a quite simple beer which, IMHO, should have a better smell of malts
T: Not impressive too. Malts, basically. The medium bitter "hoppy" end helps it a bit
M: Very light body with a medium to high carbonation
D: Not impressive. To be avoided

Dated 9/2012.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some metallic aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight grassy flavor on the finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer beer that is fairly drinkable but nothing I would want again.

another mediocre euro lager. pours medium gold in colour with a white head that turns into a nice sticky lace, which was probably the best thing about this brew. smells of grain with maybe an ever so slight hint of lemon. not much character here. same goes for the taste. it's very straw like and grainy. watery with a verry dry finish. this one's drinkable but boring, pretty much what i expected out of portugal, and i certainly enjoy the westen euro lagers to the general off-taste that the eastern euro ones provide.
