: Essa American Dark Lager brasileira tem espuma rochosa, aerada, esbranquiçada e de reduzida longevidade. Excelente formação de colarinho. Corpo opaco, ralo e marrom-escuro. Aroma: leve malte, café suave, flores, frutado, como o da Bohemia Pilsen. Sabor inicial: leves dulçor e amargor. Sabor final: leve dulçor e moderado amargor; média duração. Paladar: corpo médio-leve, textura aguada, média carbonatação e final metálico. O gosto lembra a Bohemia pilsen, com leves toques de café e malte; o amargor lembra lúpulo de longe.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straight pour from twist-off, foil-wrapped 355ml bottle to small tumbler; best by date of February 22, 2012 printed on label (220212)
Appearance (3/5): Dark in the glass, almost black, but a deep mahogany shines through when held up to the light. The head starts at about a finger, diminishes to none rather quickly, but while it’s there it’s a nice, rich khaki color.
Smell (4/10): Mild in the nose, not a lot going on, but some basic barley / grain with maybe something roasty, very faint.
Taste (6/10): Simple malt profile, light barley with a mild roasted note, some blackened grain action, almost a bit smoky. Very mild. Just a hint of some darker sweetness in the background. Yeast is very neutral, don’t taste it, and there’s no hop note to speak of.
Mouthfeel (3): Smooth, fine bubbles coat the tongue, but they disappear pretty quickly. Body is insubstantial, and there’s no hop oiliness or anything like that—just light and smooth. Nothing special.
Overall (12/20): This tastes very, very similar to regular Bohemia, but with a roasty note. I’d actually be willing to bet that it’s the same recipe, but lowering the hops and adding maybe a bit of molasses for a hint of dark sweetness, and some roasted component in the malt profile. It’s not a joyless beer, but I’m not going to go out of my way for it, either.
