0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is La Marca Bravara. Thankfully I have now found this so I can also consign this bottle to the recycling. Honestly it looks like a urine sample in the bottle. Not actualy having tried to drink same beverage (I will leave this to ex Prime Ministers of India) I cannot comment if it tastes the same though. Suffice to state this is an unimpressive light pale lager. What more can we expect from this but a thin tasteless offering? I think I would have to mow your lawn as well before I could contemplate drinking another one of these.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very pale straw colour, thick white head. Grassy pale malt aroma. Flavour is pretty flat and lifeless. Reminds me of Clausthaler NA, residual sweetness. No hops. Overly gassy. Not really bad, so much as boring.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looks a little like beer, but without any head ar lasting carbonation. Smells and tastes like soda water with a hint of citrus. Sucked in by the label like madquacker. Bought it because I had not seen it before, and now i am stuck with the balance of a sixpack. At least the brother is visiting in a couple of weeks, and I can serve it up to him.

A cess pool of fizz, corn and sugar. Bland and boring. Expecting something a little more exotice with the Brazil label.

I almost always confuse the ’grass’ smell for skunk... because that’s the smell of it. I found out the hard way that clear bottled beers have a shorter shelf life and are not brewed all that great from this beer. Live and Learn I guess. Requires a lime!

bottle. it’s an interesting bottle, but they should probably put more money and effort into making a better beer. Pours a clear pale golden colour. aroma is awful, all I can smell is grass and corn. flavour is really grassy too...super-bland, I guess that’s why it appeals to the mass market.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Came in a clear embossed bottle. Pour
was pretty much as was on display in the bottle....pale straw color small head that disappears quickly to a light ring...overly carbonated...Smell was promising...slight skunk like a Beck’s with corn/veggie smells under the hops. Started too fizzy from far too much carbonation...malts are vaguely detectable, corn dominates...some saaz hops tastes...finishes fast with a slight mustiness and no after taste.......Molson’s is pumping this as a beach beer so I suppose it will do well with the kiddies...it’s fizzy and bland enough that a lime slice and a dorky drink umbrella just may improve the flavor....what there is of it.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow colored beer with almost no head. Aroma is quite weak with a faint smell of skunkiness. Taste is very light, almost watery with a touch of corn syrup and again that feeling of skunkiness. Won’t bother with this one again.

BRAVARA it is. Not much head. Slight smell. I was expecting (nay, dreading) a repeat of Corona Extra, but I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t skunky at all - unusual for an imported, clear-bottled beer. A bit expensive, but drinkable.
