Drank a few big bottles in Brazil. Just an OK, acceptable, drinkable beer. Nothing special, but definitely better than Itaipava.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
600ml bottle served in a traditional Brazilian "copo americano" (American glass in free translation).
A: Pours a pale golden in color, perfectly clear, forming a huge bubbled aired white head. Low retention but a very thing layer remains forming some lacings in the surface but not much in left in the glass
S: Very light in the nose. Sweet grains and corn mainly. Lager yeasts
T: Following the nose, sweet grains, corn. Disgusting cardboard taste with metallic notes. Hoppy bitterness is simply imperceptible, a shame, really. It doesn’t really worth mentioning it...
M: Extremely light and watery body. Good carbonation. Cardboard aftertaste :S
O: Just another large scale Adjunct Lager produced in Brazil. Produced with low quality adjunct malts, this type of beer has to be served extremely cold to hide the annoying rice and corn taste and flavors. As it get warmed, it becomes difficult to drink. Well, in a nutshell, a "beer" to avoid...

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Light color and aroma. Tastes slightly bitter, watery but not too much. Finishes well with a slight, crisp bitterness. Overall the end result is quite drinkable for what it is, if you drink it really cold.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Boa formação de creme, branco e persistente.
Líquido amarelo claro, bastante translúcido.
Aroma bom de cereais. Um pouco adocicado.
É um pouco doce. Bastante efervescente. Pouco lúpulo. Cereais presentes. Um pouco aguada. Retrogosto amargo, de pouca duração.

Bottled 600ml. -from the bottle somewhere in Sao Paulo. Sweetish malty, grainy and slight watery with touch of hops. Short finish. Better than other macros but not much.

On bottle in Sao Paulo. GOlden color, good foam. Aromas of boiled vegetables, light hops. Light body & complexity. Good bitterness. A notch above the rest of the Brazilian macros

Big bottles served in galvanized metal tubs of ice at some various in Rio. Hard to discriminate here-- a fairly shitty pale lager served extra-cold to help mask the shitiness.

Much better than the Pilsen, this at least has some crispness in the finish. Otherwise, still very plain.

Had several 750ml bottles on my last business trip to SP. Very light beer with not a lot going on, however, it was very drinkable and I quite enjoyed it. Easily better than any light beer in the US.
