Sambadoro is the combination of all natural ingredients, the experience of 100 years of brewing artistry and a special formulation. The use of malt, roasted barley and hops result in the unique taste and high quality.

Unless you need to, donít spend your money on this stuff. Get temporary tatoos out of a vending machine before this. Dumped into glass to make big fizzy quick death white head. Tons of carbs in the unappealing pale, watered down yellow gold brew. The defining aromas that this has quickly vanashed but what was there is harsh with some grassy notes, grain and all around ick. Taste is also ick, although consumable: sweet cheap ingredients, what ever they are, bland and watery. Feels like a crappy beer with all the carbonation and sharp finish. There is something wrong with a chick with a turn of the century flavour-saver.

Hop malt aroma. Clear yellow colour with poor head and lacing. Bitter hop malt flavour. I guess this is why Brazil is not known for their beer.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle. Pours a slightly murky yellowish hazy white. Some sediment. In a pale lager? There is no aroma. Flavor is corn and this bizarre smooth Cool Whip aftertaste. Easy to drink if you can stand that.

No head at all and a cloudy yellow haze colour. Vastly better to other cheap Sth American beers Iíve tried recently. A little bit of citrus on an otherwise corn fired cheap beer.

Sambadoro has been layen around awhile before I opened it. Letís take a trip to Uberlandia, Brazil. 12oz twist off brown bottle. Bottle has a busty Aztec on the front with a blue busten-halter. I think her name is Paulista! Big feather hat and donít think she has hair. Smellís a little strong and sweet, I get the impression this is high alky content. Iím not sure if the aroma is wheat like or metallic. The look of this beer is interesting. When you pour it, there is no head or foam on top. There is a see thru mini skirt around the inside edge of the glass formed by a few bubbles. The look of this beer is hazy light beige yellow. Almost like a wheat beer but I donít see any sign of sludge on the bottom of the bottle. After I taste this, I notice the initial flavor caused me to think bitter and coarse. But that initial shock is buffered by a slide to gracefulness. I was pleasantly surprised to find this pretty smooth. Taste comes on medium strong then fades to a gentle petting of the taste buds. Has a nice feel with the carbonation, medium low but not flat. Citrusy hints of lemons. No bitterness, or barely any perceivable, on the finish. Slight white pepper gracefulness. It is gentle and friendly. Repeatable and enjoyable. One of my better tasting pale yellow lagers.

Bottle. Almost a transparent color with no head and a bunch of fizzy carbonation. Aroma is more complex than most cheap beers. A bit of spice makes it interesting. Flavor has a touch of spicy pepper, but is nothing too interesting. That said, sweet grain dominates and nothing here is worth getting excited about.

Bottle from Party Source. Poured hazy pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished quickly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with soft bitter short finish. Worth trying once.

The aroma is light citrus and putrid corn malt. The appearance is pale gold with a small head and a light haze. The flavor is malty with some citrus and herbs. The palate is like water and itís a little skunky but at least itís different than most pale lagers. The aftertaste is slightly vegetal.

This was only 2 months past the recommended date, so Iím assuming that it is supposed to be a little hazy and that it isnít off (the flavour did nothing to help determine whether it was off or not). Pale gold. Overcarbonated. Quite stinky. Sweet with a ginger ale quality that I didnít enjoy.

Ugh. Wierd smell, very sweet smellling. Not offputting, mind you, but disconcerting in a beer. Just wierd.
