1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I think this is the same beer, mine is labelled: A Marca Bravara, but the ratings remain constant.
Light yellow-gold, with a light head. aroma is of hops, seem to be high alpha hops unfortunately, slightly skunky, some corn sugar also present. The flavour was surprisingly not as bad as i expected, brazil nuts a major feature, with a little fruity hoppinessfollowed by an unpleasant bitterness

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden colour, clear and very pale, with a small white head. Initial aroma is predominantly skunky (yay, clear bottle!), but once that fades, there’s some light malt notes to be found. Body is thin and fizzy. The flavour surprised me with some biscuity maltiness, followed by a very mild grassy hop finish. It’s far from being a great beer, but it was honestly better than I expected.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very clear and pale golden body with a medium size white head.Agree with the "corn" aroma.Very light in taste, some lemon there, a bit watery and not much else at all. I gave it extra points cos it looked like it had the southern cross on the bottle cap!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear straw yellow, very light corn aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel, ends neither bitter nor sweet. It is very much like water.

Not too bad, but nothing special at the same time. this beer goes down alright, but there are so many other beers that are far better.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Skunked aroma. Very pale. Almost no head. Sweet canned corn flavour. All DMS, all the time. Very thin and highly carbonated. Hard to find anything redeemable in this one. Drainpour. Bottle (clear).

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
great advertising, but the beer leaves something to be desired. Like Corona, it’s one of those "hot summer day" beers that rely on the fact that you can drink them very fast not unlike water. It is actually the color of flat ginger ale if that makes any sense. You’re not missing much here.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Looks like piss, smells like corn, tastes like water. Listen to the brewery: add a lime, serve freezing cold. Bottle.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted like skunky Carling Black Label (Canada). Maybe its not imported from Brazil, but bottled in Canada for the domestic market? Corn water with a spray of the skunk. Bad.
