1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce can purchased in Natal. The aroma on this is of corn and DMS with some vegetal hints. Light grassy and metallic notes. Transparent pale yellow body with a medium, fairly robust white head present. Starts with some metallic character before a little corniness comes through. Finishes with a bit of a stale cereal like maltiness. What I would have expected.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
350ml can @ 4.6%. Poured a pale straw yellow color with a small, fizzy and fading white head. Just about as insipid a lager as I’ve ever had. Sparse corn, grain and lemon characters. Not a great deal in the way of bitterness or finish. Light, watery body, medium carbonation.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bouteille claire étiquetée sous le nom "A Marca Bavaria". De couleur dorée pâle et claire. Nez de maïs légèrement sucré, de grains de malt pâle avec des notes de houblon floral. Très mince en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture aqueuse. Léger goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un très léger goût de maïs sucré très doux avec un semblant de goût amer de houblon floral en finale. Post-goût très court, aux faibles notes amères de houblon floral.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a boring fizzy yellow with a very short lived fizzy white head. Aroma is corn, adjunct and malt extract. Taste not much better. Seriously, complete drain pour!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally rated July 2005. This south-american brew smells like skunk as soon as you pop open the cap. Maybe this one was sitting in the store I bought it, for a long time. The glass is clear. Pours a pale yellow colour with a white foam-cream head that leaves lacing. Can’t smell much other then the mild skunk that is left after breathing. The mouthfeel is quite good though. Very creamy. The taste is very smooth, not really bitter, but still a bit of edge. Grain malt stays in the aftertaste. Much better then Corona.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straight pour from 350ml can to small tumbler; freshness date of October 31, 2011 printed on underside of can (23/10/11). I know the style here says German Pilsener, but c’mon. This is very much an AAL.
Appearance (2/5): Clear yellow-gold body with one finger of just off-white, coarsely carbed head that diminishes quickly to a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Body’s actually piss yellow, kind of like ½ of Michigan, BC, or USC’s colors.
Smell (5/10): Pretty insubstantial, but there’s some mild sweetness and fresh vegetable aromas happening; no hop presence to speak of.
Taste (6/10): There’s a brief, mild wave of bitterness mixed with the crisp flavor of cold lager, but after that comes a moderate sweetness kind of like fresh sweet corn on the cob. Some light bready notes. Yeast is pretty neutral, and this doesn’t taste spoiled or skunky at all. Always a plus for this style.
Mouthfeel (4/5): Relatively lush, actually. There’s a mixture of coarse and fine bubbles that quickly spread throughout your mouth, but then subside not TOO, too quickly to the loose, watery body.
Overall (13/20): Call me crazy, but for an AAL this isn’t so bad. Yes, it’s cheap, yellow, fizzy, and adjuncted to hell; it’s also light, refreshing, inoffensive, and somewhat more substantial than other Brazilian AALs.
