2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
BOTTLE: at first, the aroma is not so bad; there is a shy but nice for what-it-is perfume of saaz hops, quickly replaced by an awesome fragrance ofjaritataca (skunk that is) and some hints of honey and there is a nice kind-of-pilsner color: blonde. yup, blonde. there you go: a real, true, authentic brazilian american pilsner. the thing is that there is no bitterness per se, it’s more about the very unpleasant acridness (a problem with the preservation of the bottle maybe? the sticker says best before august 30, 2012 thought and i bought it in mid-december, 2011... but the environment of the shop where i bought it could have been a problem; no air conditioned inside and it was more than 40°C outside and it was not stocked in any refrigerator). to me, it’s just another problematic brazilian beer, that was brewed with very good intentions. it’s why i always feel bad rating those beers. they do try to be different, but they just fail at it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark Amber with a small off white head. Lager yeast smell with a little sweetness. Taste has a big caramel flavour with some clean, citrus hop bitterness. My only criticism of this beer is that I don't think it is a Pilsen (too dark with a big caramel taste - more like a Red Lager?!).

Coloração dourada,espuma alta e duradoura,aroma suave,cítrico,é notado também um certo dulçor lembrando açúcar queimado(mascavo),no sabor amargor do lúpulo se sobressai deixando um retrogosto amargo duradouro,final levemente seco.Uma Pilsner diferente.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours nice amber with thin white head. Aroma of pine and citric hops. Taste is bitter, with long bitter finish. A bit sweet too, but bitterness overcomes. Nice beer, not a traditional pilsner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden with a very small white head. Aroma is dark sugar, honey, caramel, molasses, some citric and herbal notes. Taste is very hoppy (passion fruit, pineapple, herbs, lemon, orange), with the sweetness of dark sugar, tastes like honey. Very balanced. Strong bitter aftertaste. Great lager!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aparência: rótulo com design diferenciado, além de ser em vinil, bom pra gente colecionar; espuma média; coloração âmbar claro translúcido. Aroma: nunca tinha sentido algo assim, lembra mato depois de roçado. Paladar: destaque para o amargor do lúpulo, bem mais equilibrado com o malte do que uma IPA, por exemplo. O que salva é o preço aqui em Minas, porque reparei que em outros Estados é bem custoso. E eu ganhei o kit com as 4 Extremes + caldereta; obrigado meu caro Kell! Feliz 2015!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 350ml bottle served in a pokal glass.
Bottle art looks like a reference to the American Flying Dog brewery beers.
This beer is part of the "extreme series" produced by Backer, a brewery located in the state of Minas Gerais - Brazil.
It’s a 5% ABV American style Pilsen brewed with "açucar mascavo", brown cane sugar.
A: Pours an orange clear color forming a medium, thin bubbled white head. Medium retention forming a lot of thing and lingering lacings in the glass.
S: Extremely grassy and piny in the nose. Sweet and malty. Crispy. Strong notes of Pilsen and pale malts. Flowery hops.
T: Sightly sweet upfront. Great malty backbone. Good combination of American and Czech hops (Good notes of piny hops). Great bitter end (well applied 31.5 IBUs). Some light sour notes to the final taste.
M: Light body. Good carbonation. Sweet malts, piny hops and some sour notes in the aftertaste.
O: Good drinkability. Unique, refreshing and pleasant Pilsener.
