BOTTLE: at first, the aroma is not so bad; there is a shy but nice for what-it-is perfume of saaz hops, quickly replaced by an awesome fragrance ofjaritataca (skunk that is) and some hints of honey and there is a nice kind-of-pilsner color: blonde. yup, blonde. there you go: a real, true, authentic brazilian american pilsner. the thing is that there is no bitterness per se, it’s more about the very unpleasant acridness (a problem with the preservation of the bottle maybe? the sticker says best before august 30, 2012 thought and i bought it in mid-december, 2011... but the environment of the shop where i bought it could have been a problem; no air conditioned inside and it was more than 40°C outside and it was not stocked in any refrigerator). to me, it’s just another problematic brazilian beer, that was brewed with very good intentions. it’s why i always feel bad rating those beers. they do try to be different, but they just fail at it.

[email protected] Arms, Umeå (backlog). Deep golden colour with a small, but longlasting white head. Aroma is fruity, grassy and herbal with some slight sweet and bready malty notes. Flavour is fruity, some slight toasted and grassy notes with a crispy maltiness to it. Fresh and tasty.

Cerveja cor acobreada. Aroma doce e frutado. Sobressai o amargor e o doce. Saborosa afinal.

Dark Amber with a small off white head. Lager yeast smell with a little sweetness. Taste has a big caramel flavour with some clean, citrus hop bitterness. My only criticism of this beer is that I don't think it is a Pilsen (too dark with a big caramel taste - more like a Red Lager?!). Rated by BrewTom

mauroruellas (890) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUN 20, 2015
Coloração dourada,espuma alta e duradoura,aroma suave,cítrico,é notado também um certo dulçor lembrando açúcar queimado(mascavo),no sabor amargor do lúpulo se sobressai deixando um retrogosto amargo duradouro,final levemente seco.Uma Pilsner diferente.

nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 8, 2015
Pours nice amber with thin white head. Aroma of pine and citric hops. Taste is bitter, with long bitter finish. A bit sweet too, but bitterness overcomes. Nice beer, not a traditional pilsner.

felip989 (201) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 14, 2015
Deep golden with a very small white head. Aroma is dark sugar, honey, caramel, molasses, some citric and herbal notes. Taste is very hoppy (passion fruit, pineapple, herbs, lemon, orange), with the sweetness of dark sugar, tastes like honey. Very balanced. Strong bitter aftertaste. Great lager!

denisconrado (26) - Montezuma, BRAZIL - FEB 1, 2015
Aparência: rótulo com design diferenciado, além de ser em vinil, bom pra gente colecionar; espuma média; coloração âmbar claro translúcido. Aroma: nunca tinha sentido algo assim, lembra mato depois de roçado. Paladar: destaque para o amargor do lúpulo, bem mais equilibrado com o malte do que uma IPA, por exemplo. O que salva é o preço aqui em Minas, porque reparei que em outros Estados é bem custoso. E eu ganhei o kit com as 4 Extremes + caldereta; obrigado meu caro Kell! Feliz 2015!

olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2014
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Light and flowery smell. Similar taste. Strong bitterness, short and sharp. Clean with a strong bitterness.
