Super Bock, UNICER União Cervejeira S.A., Portugal is the country’s best selling beer. Classifying its style can be difficult; marketed as a bock, it leans toward the American Pilsner style, bordering on malt liquor, yet retains some of the boozy traits of bock. As such, Super Bock pours light gold colored with a nose of low straw and a very faint floral scent. Flavors of malt sweetness and light lemon rind mingle in a light to medium body which finishes malty sweet, but short of cloying.
