1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned 269ml. -from Carrefour Manaus. All canned Brazilian macros (350ml) costs from 1.15 to 2.30 R$ but I’ve paid for this one 3.89 R$; even in supermarket!!! Why, this one is soooo much better...let’s see. Yellow coloured (as others), small to medium sized white head (as others), weak nose (as others). Sweetish malty, watery and some corn (all as others) with just a bit more hops than others...Hell yeah!!! In one word- USELESS!!!

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 The same boring dull yellow colour as most Brazilian macro beers with a fizzy head which is short lived. Aroma is basically the same as regular Itaipava but a tiny bit more hoppy. Taste is almost the same watery forgetfulness as the regular but has a bit more sweet malt. Overall forgettable, slightly better than the regular Itaipava but still pretty bad. Skip

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to dm9831 for sharing this. It poured a very pale yellow body with a creamy head and provided spotty lacing. The aroma was almost air, just of minute whiff of generic sweetness. It was a tad bit watery. The flavor has a pale malt sweetness with a musty/dusty feeling to it. The finish was musty and sweet, with the wateryness cutting the latter. Actually, fairly drinkable as a lawnmower beer.

clear yellow-gold, a touch darker than the premium version, medium white head, some lace. musty malt nose, mild and airy. flavor is a sweetish malty flavor with leathery musty tones, also fairly mild. medium body, sweet malty finish. a nice change from light lagers, but still pretty unexciting. sampled in a bottle at Andarilho by Ley in Campinas, SP, Brasil.

Pale lager suave, sem destacar-se das demais. Aroma e sabor muito leves de lúpulo e malte. Refrescante.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 350ml. Pale yellow color, a nice white head, just a simple pale lager, nothing special, no bitterness or hoppy flavor. Good to a hot day only.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Abril/2008. Garrafa, 350 ml. Coloração dourada, creme branco. Cerveja leve, muito parecida com a Itaipava normal. Lúpulo quase imperceptível. A única diferença evidente é que a Fest é bem mais carbonatada que a normal. No mais, as diferenças parecem sutis. Parece que veio para concorrer com Skol Beats, Kaiser Summer, Sol, etc. Bem gelada, num dia de calor, é agradável, embora não passe de água com gás. Mas, sabendo que esse é o seu propósito, ela até que é razoável.
