1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden and looks reasonable. Hard to really say anything constructive about such a bland beer lacking any kind of personality. Very thin bod, slightly sweet and very boring.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in a shaker
Recent brewing, absorbed 07/07
Poured a clear yellow with a moderate white fizzy quickly diminishing head.
Smelt of moderate sweet corn.
Taste was upfront moderate sweet corn (and cane sugar?) followed by more of the same with a light perfumey bitter hops presence on a short finish.
Palate was light bodied, watery, and fizzy.
Overall, this is a standard lager except you pay for the importing fees. Nothing fancy about the taste, but the label says exotic and different and classy. Contents are still crap (for 9.99 a sixer, anyways). The sweet aspect of it kind of reminded me of cane sugar. I wonder if they used it as priming sugar...

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow Color. Smell of corn, hops, malt, sugar and grains. Taste of corn, malt, sugar, copper and hops. Not my cup of tea!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 Bottle. I didn’t get much of a head at all. The color is clear yellow/gold; you can read the newspaper through it. It seemed slightly low on carbonation to me, which is pretty good (other pale lagers are too fizzy to me). Not much taste, though.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Contrary to popular opinion I liked this beer. It has a fresh sweet flavor, it is somewhat fruity.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear yellow golden color with a small fizzy fair lacing mostly diminishing white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, corn. Flavor is moderate sweet, malt, fruit sweet with a short to average duration. Body is light, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light blonde, clear lager, typical of Latin American style. Wheat and corn on the nose. Very light on taste, but has hints of light hops, watery overall. This beer certainly leaves a lot to be desired, but it is a refresher for a muggy MIami summer day. I probably won’t try this one again unless I’m in Brazil.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a pale, almost strawlike, golden with a small white head. The aroma is grainy with no hop distinction or maltiness. The flavor is light with a grain taste and a watery finish.
