Weird, in the label says... Brazilian, not Dutch. Anyway I liked it really much, don’t really understand the bad grades...

This beer tastes like some kind of fruit, maybe peaches. The bottle is cool and they are damn good when they are cold. I can drink them all day long.

It is quite smooth for a lager. No wonder why a lot of Brasileiros drink this stuff. I don’t know if the recently imported Brahma here in US is the same as the Brahma Chopp served in Brazil. The US Brahmas have an oddly curved glass bottle with no label except on the neck, and the Brahma logo etched on the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 2005 bottle purchased from Julio’s (kept in cooler) and consumed on 2/14/06. Burnished copper backdrop amid a bright maize-golden body, with a multitude of medium-large sized bubbles rising quickly to create an initially moderate white head that is not retained, diminishing immediately to ring with no trace of anything left on the glass. The nose shows a touch of light vanilla, dry bittering hops, seltzer water (carbonic acid) and light cornmeal. Clean water, no yeast apparency in the nose and only really the vanilla is notable as a slight flaw. The flavor begins with light malt sweetness (honey, light dough) and a hint of corn, quite real and authentic, though I have no idea what type of corn is used. It doesnt taste like corn syrup, anyhow. No hop flavor, some very brief interludes of bitterness and a well integrated carbonation provide for an extremely refreshing, drinkable session beer. Nearly flawless, with the above mentioned sweet corn flavor done quite tastefully. Some bits of crisp yeast on end, but fleeting. Watery, of course, but nothing out of style, with no alcohol apparency. Carbonation is not sharp.
Here are some things I didn’t find in this beer:
tinny aroma, hella crappy taste, boiled cardboard, salty quality, corn syrupy taste, wheat and vegetables, sweet dough and banana, cheap hair tonic, stale pond water, bland metallic tinge, peaches, gasoline, smoke flavor, sourish malt aroma, soapy, harsh and chemical.
I will make sure to look for those next time I have this. . . . .

Good and very light lager reminiscent of Corona and Sol. Works great as a thirst quencher.

Pretty good beer. Belongs in the same family as Corona, Sol, Dos Equis. Still nice and refreshing. As with those other beers there isn’t a whole lot of flavour but still worth a try.

Had a couple of these the other night over at the neighbours. I’m not sure how receptive my mouth was to evaluating this beer, as I’d started the evening with 6 Stellas, 3 Drambuie Black Ribbons, and a ten-year old tawny port. My Brahmas were ’examined’ directly from bottle to mouth. The colour was an average gold, and I don’t think there would’ve been much head if poured into a glass. Aroma was not unpleasant, a bit of hop. Taste, mouthfeel, and aftertaste were better than a cheaper swill pale lager, but I wouldn’t feel left out if I didn’t have another one of these. I was most reminded of the ’other’ Brazilian, Amarca Bavaria. I only ever seem to have this stuff when served it by my neighbour, after I’ve come in from consuming a wide variety of drinks elsewhere. If he wants to pay a premium $ for something that isn’t as good as say, Old Style, so be it.
