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.
