2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mass produced lager that is marketed extensively throughout Latin America. A pale yellow price point leader with little aroma, hop character or mouthfeel. Very nuetral and average - good for what you pay. I’ve had this in several Latin American countries.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a pale golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled aired white head. Low retention. A small layer remains and some lacings are formed
S: Smell is imperceptive. I would say some sweet grains. Still looking for the hops... Corn is a killer in the nose, becoming worst as it warms
T: Imperceptive too. Very watery. Some notes of sweet grains and corn. Disgusting taste of cardboard. A bit metallic. In overall, a crisp and bready taste. Very mild bitter aftertaste
M: VERY light watery body and strong artificial carbonation. Light corn in the aftertaste
O: Low drinkability. Difficult to finish. Once in Brazil, go for the new small breweries like a Eisenbahn, Baden Baden, Colorado and etc. You will find better beers there, for sure...

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for some 5 years ... this bottled version that is available here in the U.S. does not "compete" with the real draft version that is available in bars in Brazil ... this beer is not
Pasteurized in Brazil, however, the bottled version here in the U.S. Some taste, and flavor is compromised.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
350 ml can in Brazilian Amazon and again at Manuas aeroporte.
Initially decent but weak white head over a clear, light golden body. Light colored even for style. OK lacing.
FEEL: Light body with crisp, medium-high carbonation.
taste: typical light lager with hints of cereal as well and light malts and a touch of hops. Mild but lingering aftertaste more clearly reveals the herbal hops as well as some metallic aspects.
smell: faint cereal and light malts with a touch of spicy hops.
O: average at best for this style in northern Brazil. Certainly not worth seeking out but passable.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
helder gouden met witte kraag, aroma van pilsmouten, graan, beetje goedkoop. smaken zijn erg licht, goedkoop ’oosteuropees-achtig’ granige tonen, muffig en nat karton, de rest doorgespoeld, nee bah !

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
47,3cl can shared by Arve_Christian - thanks. Pours clear pale with a small, white head. Slightly nauseating aroma with cooked vegetables, burned rubber and hints of grain and honey. Sweetish with some lightly sour notes and not much bitterness to speak of.
