On draught in neighbourhood bar, Copacabana, Rio. Lagery looks with a small white head.. Some bready malt and some veg in the nose. Fizzy, watery, metallic. Pretty bloody awful and not to be dwelt on.

Boa, cerveja mais forte que a comum itaipava. Amargor mÃ©dio e sabor um pouco acido. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

straw yellow color, white head. Lots of carbonation. Good sticky lacing through drinking this.
Nose is corn, cane sugar, corn husk, and stewed vegetables.
Taste is sweet corn chowder, burnt corn husk, cane sugar, and some vegetable bitterness.
Feel is highly carbonated, sweet, and just putrid. Sweet and hard to drink.
Awful, awful beer

Uma cerveja diferenciada, de sabor mais encorpado, produzida com malte e lúpulo selecionados e importados da Europa. Ideal para consumidores com o paladar mais exigente.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 Pours a very light yellow with a short lived white head. Aroma is sweet corn. Taste isn’t much better. Watery, no body, not much taste. Really terrible only marginally better than the regular Itaipava.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Straight pour from twist-off, foil-wrapped 355ml bottle to small tumbler; best by date of December 21, 2011 printed on label (21/12/11)
Appearance (2/5): Clear, pale yellow-golden body with about a one-finger head of pure white foam fading to a thin ring around the edge of the glass, and quickly. An interesting effect actually is a few fat CO2 bubbles releasing relatively steady streams of tiny bubbles to the top, kind of like champagne. Really, really thin, bad, cheap champagne.
Smell (3/10): Kind of doesn’t exist. Very weak, some sense cooked veggies and some generic German hop variety.
Taste (3/10): Fortunately, a crisp bitterness is the first thing to hit, and after it dies down, it stays low in the background. What comes to the front instead is a mixture boiled corn (but like if you took canned corn and then boiled it) and some faint pale malt. Yeast flavor is totally neutral, and the hops—weak as they are—have to be whatever is the most commonly available German variety.
Mouthfeel (2/5): This is an odd one—I think those coarse bubbles actually came back to attack my tongue. It’s interesting, it’s half-smooth and half-aggressive with the carbonation, and has almost a numbing effect in some areas.
Overall (6/20): One thing Brazil does not lack is an array of crisp, fizzy yellow beers to choose from. This isn’t the worst, but out of all of them, why you would choose Itaipava Premium—unless it’s out of sheer curiosity or determination—is beyond me.

12 ounce bottle while at Texas de Brazil. Poured a very pale yellow, and was not expecting much. Had aromas of light barley, malt, and grass. Was better than most macro pilsners I’ve had, and went really well with charred meat.

Not a huge surprise here, yellow, mild grass etc. Your typical Tropi-light lager. Not an awful one.
