Brazil: Iím not a big fan of Brazil nuts. I like Taurus firearms. I do not like this Brazilian beer, however. About as weak as a lager/pilsener can get without calling it Bud.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz. bottle: This seemed like a good beer to have since I was in a Brazillian eatery. Some of my acquantances thought that it was good, I would only give it an OK. There was a fairly non-existent aroma. No offensive, just not there. The beer was clear golden, about the same hue of adjacent Miller Lite. The taste was at least a hair better. There was a hint of sweetness to it. No bitterness at all. Iíd stay away from another.

i just had an Iron City pale lager before this and itís pretty damn similar. iím not sure whether or not this is better. wait... yeah, this is a little bit worse. still a lot of that annoying cheesy texture, but now itís riddled with puddles of acid water. not annoying, just... go away. iím sick of you. i shouldnít have had that iron city! ugh... artificial. drainpour.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a white head that fades slowly, leaving a good lace. Light carbonation. Clear yellow color. Molasses nose, starts sweet with molasses in background but not syrupy - very light bodied. Clean light finish. $1.49 for a 12 oz bottle from Liquor Barn Lexington, KY.

Very light yellow... inch head, lotsa carbonation. Has little smell, but whatís there smells like ordinary "cheap" beer. Tastes of cheap, corny beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle. How pathetic is beer distribution in Vermont, that I was excited to see this garbage for the first time? Alas, so is my state. Anyway, itís very pale and clear, with a small white head that does stick around for a bit. The nose is corn-sweet, the mouthfeel is actually not bad, medium carbonation and more body than Iíd expect. Little flavor, alas, artificially sweet with a hint of late salt. Pretty bad overall I guess though not as awful as Iíd expected.

335ml Bottle. Paler than water. Sweet & watery, thin malt. Zero hops, or taste, or merit to it being brewed. Pack your bags and get back to Brazil.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A sweet lemonade-shandy type smell to this very light coloured lager. The taste is also on the sweet side but is drinkable and inoffensive. I donít mind it, but wouldnít seek it out.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This beer was given to me by a distributor hoping that I would consider it for the rare/specialty beer section at Liquor Max.
A Brazilian Pilsner....ughhh...just getting this beer out of the way but perhaps it will spark some interest.
Pours a clear pale yellow. The head is white and has descent retention but there is no lace to be found.
There actually is an aroma to this beer and it isnít repulsive. Grassy, medicinal and sweet. Not bad.
Now it is time to taste this beer and unlike my usual tasting sessions, I am actually dreading the first taste.
Unbearable. I donít even want to discuss this but I suppose I will. Taste is light bodied, grassy, herbal, sugary, barely anything at all. Horrible. Drain Pour.
Iíll let the Fort Collins Water Treatment Facility deal with this.

Good beer to drink while hanging out and trying new beers. Nothing special but nothing horrible either.
