3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Served a bit too warm, about 9 celsius, whilst listening to some Choro. It has been a sunny day.
Aroma - predominantly onion and weed, hints of citrus and banana fritters.
Appearance - pale yellow, very clear, thick white head that lasts most of the way down.
Taste - Cherry, beaches (seaweed and sand), cinnamon, chlorine, soap, golden syrup, pine, vinegar, dusty old pubs.
Palate - slightly soapy but overall all smooth and soft.
Overall - reminds me of being on a beach in Honduras. The first sip after giving it a whiff was like’ wow, what does that remind me of?’ Not a connoisseur’s drink by any means but, a nice lager for relaxing with. The taste is reminiscent of the honduran beer and there are some strong flavours of seaside coming through. Quite a watery drink and very sweet, would be better colder and on a hot day. Not amazing but it’s a taste of Brazil, and I love Brazil.

Yep, it’s pale, it’s lager, and not very interesting at all. Gets me a beer from Brazil though.

Bottle from Waitrose. Honestly, all those beers out there and they put this on the shelves! It tastes of sweetener, and little else. Pants.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Waitrose Richmond, poured into a pilsner glass. Very pale yellow, clear, highly sparkling, small white head endures. Aroma - sweet caramel malts, a little bit of ashtray. Body is medium, spritzy and foamy. Taste is mostly water and tin. Overall, this is on the inoffensive and insipid side of the pale lager spectrum. Though I’d say it’s more suited to enjoying Brazilian sunshine than a British winter.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 35.5 cl.
Pale with minimal white diminishing had. Laces surprisingly well. Aroma is mainly cardboard, and a very light touch of some malt and citrus. Taste more of the same, and water. Not much more than carbonate, alcohol induced water. But is probably a nice refreshment in the hot sun.
