1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at the Copacabana in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Poured a small white creamy and smooth head with fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, uncarbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty and some skunkiness. Flavor was malty, thick and basically lacks flavor. Tingly, thick mouthfeel.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pale gold with no head. Aromas are corn, some skunky sweet caramel and soapy metallic hops. Flavours are...the same as the aroma but with some acidicy. The finish is sweet and flat. Pretty poor.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, with and without lime. First off i recommend the lime as it actually gives it some flavour. Pale yellow, white head dissipates quick, little lacing. Smell slightly skunky, corn, hops, and a little bit sweet. Not much flavour, little corn and pretty watery. Refreshing on a hot day, but thats about it.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. A white coloured beer (ok there’s a little yellow) with an aroma of corn and water. The taste is also corn and water. Thin mouthfeel - only slightly refreshing. No ta!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing special with this beer. Good on a hot summer night when there’s nothing else on the menu, but otherwise pretty bland.

Blandly unremarkable but refreshing. Most likely brewed to keep thirsty North American and European tourists happy while partying in Brazil. (330 ml bottle)

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Bottled (labelled A Marca Bravara, 4.5%). Pale golden, no head. Corn aroma. Sweet and fizzy, heavy on adjuncts with notes of stale hops. Low bitterness. Almost Carlsberg-y in it’s cloying sweetness and unclean vegetable flavour.
Earlier Rating: 3/17/2004 Total Score: 1.9
Sampled draught at Tyreno, São Jose dos Campos, SP, Brazil.
Golden colour, creamy head. Lightly grassy and quite dry. Mild and soft, some aromatic hops in the finish, but no bitterness.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
2004 bottle shared with bucknaked, 4/28/2005. Light yellow, pale-white gold, some white head, little retention. Smells of strongly skunked hops, vanilla-corn. Bland and papery, dew covered grass, lots of water, too much carbonation, bland. Maybe a touch of grassiness. Very light body.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thought it was ok, really bright golden color, basically the same thing as corona but it went down pretty good even without a lime, not bad for a cheap beer night, girls will like it.

At first I thought it was a bad batch, but after reading some of the other comments, it is otherwise. I thought a skunk died in the bottle, but no and after six, it was water. Not even fit for a park bench and a paper bag. Yuck
