1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Clear bottle - 330ml. Piss-yellow body without any head. Aroma is a horrible mix of skunk and vegetarian’s fart. Taste is watery and palate unexistent. Emptying my cats' litter is a nicer experience than drinking that atrocious beverage. Drainpour...

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.
