Sagres Cerveja is a Pale Lager brewed by Sociedade Central de Cervejas, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a stange from a bottle.
The lager pours a crystal-clear straw and is topped by a towering stack of puffy white foam that shows excellent retention. An abundant and constant stream of fine bubbles rises in the glass. Gobs of lace and residue cling to the sides during consumption.
Its aroma is faint but it does have a sweet scent of corn.
The palate is simple with a taste of white bread throughout. Any bitterness is all but absent, but if you concentrate hard enough, you can detect just a hint of grassy hops and pepper in the background.
Its feel is expectedly smooth with a light body but has low carbonation.
The Sagres Cerveja is light and refreshing but not particularly interesting. Its palate could use more balance from hops and its feel needs more carbonation. On the plus side, the lager does have a superb appearance but beyond that, this is a brew to buy only when nothing else is available.
