3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
350ml can served in a pokal glass.
A: Pours a dark brown mocha color forming a big and creamy beige head. Thin bubbled. Good retention and tons of lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Sweet grains, roasted grains, caramel, dark chocolate. A bit metallic. Brown bread. Yeasts are clearly low fermentation style
T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet upfront. Roasted grains. Brown bread. Dark chocolate. Oreo. In overall, a dry watery taste with a mild bitter end. Yeasts have a strong Lager profile
M: Light watery body. Medium carbonation. Mild bitter aftertaste
O: Nice beer. Very honest for a large production brew. Quite tasty if compared with the standard Brazilian adjunct Lagers

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, near-opaque black beer with a thin head. Aroma is sweet, lightly chocolatey malt. In the flavour the chocolatey malt is matched by a twist of fruit. There’s not much body to it and it’s every so slightly on the watery side but it’s a perfectly drinkable beer all the same.

"a light-medium bodied sweetish malt beer. little in the way of hops or balance, but it’s a decent enough beer if your in the mood for malt, nut, & toffee. simple but fairly tasty."

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Morrisons, sweet, caramel taste which reminds me a little of Cola! Quite a lot of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Morrisons Supermarket, Glasgow (£1.79):
This one started well and certainly looked the part but it was a beer that started to fade down the straight and just seemed to remind me of a pale lager too much with some skunk and grassy hops making themselves know and coming across a little too strongly for my liking. I was enjoying it initially with the darker, roasted malts starting things off but these flavours disappeared far too quickly for my liking and the beer just seemed ordinary and plain by the end. Definitely better than Xingu Gold but not a beer to buy on it’s own right.
