Had a 600 ml bottle at a cafe in Gramado - RS (Brazil), on to the beer:

This beer is a sparkling, faded gold dust yellow with a with a big froathy head on top. Th aroma has some lemon accents to it akin to Mr. Clean, some grains and hay emerge in the nose too. On the palate, it is a smooth and easy beer to get down. The flavor is good too, again there is sweet lemon, some bready and notes of dough. It´s well balanced with addition flavors of citrus. Overall, it's very refreshing.

16.9oz brown bottle. Freshness date on label.
It pours a shiny pale golden color with a fluffy and fizzy snow-white head, along with some decent lacing.
The smell of cut hay and mowed lawn is faint. An equally mild floral hop aroma comes and goes.
A subtle taste of lightly roasted malty grain is pleasantly appealing.
The hop bitterness is a complex mix of upfront citrus and floral, with a light back-of-the-throat harshness.
Herbal tastes in the background ties this brew together and give it a sort of roundness and balance.
This is a good session beer for a hot day in the sun!

I had the Baden Baden Pilsner on Tap at the Figguira restaurant in Sao Paulo. This beer was very smooth, light and drinkable. Went very well with the appetizers we had ordered. The beer was golden clear with standard Brazilian Chopp head. The scent was nothing spectacular....typical. The taste was grain and hop balanced to a very drinable beer. We mostly drank this beacuse of the light refreshing body and flavor.

My second sampling from this microbrewery. I was immediately impressed by the floral aroma, i haven't had that in awhile. Body was a pale gold capped by a frothing head which didn't bother sticking around for too long. Taste is subtle but with a pleasant floral aftertaste. Well worth the few reais I spent. I'll track down more Baden Baden before long.

Man, this comes off more like a kristalweizen to me. Maybe its just because the bottle says "Cristal," but it tastes like light wheat with a hint of spice to me. I guess as it warms I can get more pilsner malt flavorwith a hint of herbal hops in both th aroma and flavor. either way, this is a light but tasty beer. Craft beer for hot climates.

I've been doing a lot of drinking in Brazil lately! While I prefer the 'dark ale' from Baden Baden, this is a nice alternative to the high abv stout. It's a refreshing drink, although not totally loaded with flavors. There's a wheaty taste to it, but mostly masked by citrus flavors. It's slightly bitter in my opinion.

It's not what I'd expect from a craft beer but definitely pick this up from a grocery if you see it, MUCH better than the usual drinks served at restaurants and bars.

600ml served in a weizen.

A: Pours a pale yellow clear color forming a big bubbled aired white head. Medium retention and some lacings left

S: Sweet grains, honey, Lager yeasts. Grassy hops

T: Sweet upfront. Sweet grains. Metallic. Lager yeasts. Grassy hops. Mild hops bitterness

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Sweet malts aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Definitely not a Czech one since it lacks a lot of the grassy and lemony hops bitterness of a real Czech one but still a good German Pilsener ;). For a Brazilian beer, I would say that, at least, it tastes malts

2.8/5  rDev -16.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Light golden color with apparent carbonation with a two fingers head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Mild malty aroma with hints of floral hops and vanilla.
Refreshing and spicy flavor (its best quality), with a malt sweetness balanced by a mild bitterness from floral hops. Hints of apples juice.
Light body with good carbonation.
Refreshing Pilsner with a nice flavor and no flaws, quite low on hops and nothing extraordinary though, and definitely not worth the price.
