Itís light malty, white creamy head that was fully lasting. It has clear body and sweet flavor.

I really like this beer. Bought a couple of cases last summer and its the perfect warm weather beer. Its light and has a hint of corona about it. Slightly tangy and very easy drinking especially if ice cold. Sure it hasnít got a huge amount of flavour and the colour is super pale but overall it makes the perfect beer on a hot day.

A "premium" swill, but not such good value for the $, as least in Canada. I rather enjoyed drinking this one, probably the best beer Iíve had from the "Latino" part of the world. Tasted quite nice.

Pale lager with little head, a malty light aroma and a sweet but very palatable flavour. Overall quite a drinkable drink when chilled.

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 címon. 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. Bodyís actually piss yellow, kind of like Ĺ of Michigan, BC, or USCís colors.
Smell (5/10): Pretty insubstantial, but thereís some mild sweetness and fresh vegetable aromas happening; no hop presence to speak of.
Taste (6/10): Thereís 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 doesnít taste spoiled or skunky at all. Always a plus for this style.
Mouthfeel (4/5): Relatively lush, actually. Thereís 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 isnít so bad. Yes, itís cheap, yellow, fizzy, and adjuncted to hell; itís also light, refreshing, inoffensive, and somewhat more substantial than other Brazilian AALs.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 This beer celebrated my 2 years at Ratebeer. I know it had clear glass bottle, had nothing of great German Pilsner, nothing except feel that it wanted more. What makes this beer different from many of other beers is that it does try to be better. Other than that light, drinkable sweet lager. Thanks Doug! Radek Fest 03 tomorrow!

This is like a dirty Corona. It goes down easy but has a slight dirty/burnt taste to it. I would drink it again but it's not worth the price.
