1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Typical Pale Lager look, light golden, clear and bright: weak, white, fading head. Corn, grainy and sweet: not a good brew by any standards. I think Brazilians should stick to football and leave beer brewing to others!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, not quite sure who supplied this one but thank you. Gold with fizzed white head. Sweet malts but remaining thin on the palate, corn notes. Not for a winter afternoon in south Birmingham.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma fraco, coloração amarelo palha e brilhante. Na boca, um leve dulçor e um amargor bem suave. Melhor do que as tradicionais de massa, passou até a minha "favorita" no quesito, a Skol, dá uma boa refrescada. Harmonização perfeita com pastel de aratu na beira da praia.

33cl bottle at Chriso’s Christmas tasting, London. it pours a clean light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is just grains, with a slight tanginess. Taste is quite sweet, grainy with a definite note of cardboard. Overall, quite bland

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle shared at chriso’s winter tasting 7/12/2014. Thanks to Leighton for this one. Very pale, yellow crystal clear pour with a fleeting head. Aroma is nutty diacetyl beer, corn. Flavour is common of stale cardboard grains, chalk, thin dull malts. Palate is very thin, light, some oxidisation. really terrible.
