Bottle. Pale straw-yellow body with a small white ring of head. The aroma is grassy and grainy...simple to say the least. The flavour is very watery and light - awfully sweet and grainy flavour along with some corn. Wretched stuff.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Straw color with a thin waxy looking head. Tobacco, grain and white grape aromas. Very sweet liquid. Creamed corn and light malt flavors. Fairly dry finish with a hint of herbal hops. Light nondeScript sweet linger. This one begs for some deeper malt character or some more hops balance.

Radek Kliber (6825) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2006
Pale gold with weak white top. Light grainy nose, gentle citric overlap. Very faint hop character. Thin bodied, fairly strong alcohol presence. Light malt work. Short finish. Poor.

Medium yellow with a thin white head. The aroma was a litle skunky with old corn and some cooked green beans. The taste has some funky metallic corn. There is also some raw potato in the finish. A thin mouthfeel. Glad this is cold, I will drink it fast.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 6, 2006
From a clear, swoopy sided 12 oz bottle. Urine yellow with almost no head. Smells really bad - acrid corn, kinda funky. Body is really flat, even though there is a cascade of bubbles flying up from the bottom of my glass. Mild, sickly sweet malt-and-corn-funk flavor. On the plus side, the flavors are barely detectable. Not a complete drain pour (I’m likely too kind in that area) but certainly crappy.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a small head that disappeared very quickly. Aroma of corn is quite evident and not that pleasant. Taste is your typical South American pale lager with lots of corn. At least the clear bottle was not skunked. Mostly boring and watery but not offensive in any way and definitely not something I will seek again.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2006
(Bottled) Colour is pale yellow with a frothy, quickly disappearing, head. Nose is ... uhm ... very modest, almost non existing. Slightly grassy, flowery notes, no traces whatsoever of hops. Taste is sweet and rather malty, neutral with hints of boiled corn (which may very well be exactly what it is) and artifical sweetener. Light body. May very well do the trick chilled on a hot afternoon on the Copacabana, but otherwise a rather pointless brew.

Wow, hey, we get a beer that’s genuinely brewed in Brazil! That country known for having good beer...right? Right?! You wouldn’t force-feed us crap beer because it’s a marketing gimmick, would you? Goddamn, this is terrible. I mean, drinkable, yes, but a cheap berry-like sweetness dominates up front and a foul spoiled vegetable flavour follows up. Plasticky and washed-out.

Golden/yellow, white head. Fruity, sugary aroma. Quite flat malty flavor. Mild finish.

[bottle from ASDA] "Neutral aroma" is about right, though i think they could apply "less accentuated" to every aspect of this beer, not just bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 9/9/2005 Total Score: 1
[bottle from asda] aroma is wet paper. body is thin. pale yellow with a white head white quickly disappears to nothing, pretty awful stuff.
