3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle poured into a tulip. This beer is being brewed locally, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by the Petropolis group (responsible for Petra, Itaipava and other brands). Color is a beautiful coppery golden, with lively carbonation and very dense, thick head. Aroma is sweet, with some hints of spiciness. Very nice on the palate. Traces of alcohol and sweet malts, balanced by moderate hoppiness, just enough to make it work. A wonderfully sessionable beer that goes down very smoothly. I plan to buy more of it!
