The aroma is very light and unimpressive with weak malts and hops. The appearance is pale gold with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma which is not bad at all for the style. It's very inoffensive but that is not enough to say it's good. The palate is typical of the style. Overall this is an average beer.

Had this great beer on a recent trip to Rio De Janeiro. Had it in an ice cold can as well as an ice cold draft (choppe as they call it). Ice cold is the only way beer will be served to you in Brazil. It was brought to my beach chair for only 2 Reais (roughly 95 cents U.S.) Smooth and refreshing without tasting like a light beer. Kinda reminds me of a Busch beer but with a better taste. Now before you go and write off this review because of the Busch reference, imagine yourself on Ipanema Beach surrounded by literally hundreds and hundreds of Brazilian women with perfect bodies wearing thongs. I think you could enjoy Busch then!! Remember most of the beer consumption in Rio takes place on the beach in 90 plus degree weather so a 6.5% beer is out of the question. Overall a great beer that you should definitely check out if you are in Brazil!

This is a good brazilian beer. It´s currently the bang for the buck beer in Brazil. The owners are the same of the old Bohemia beer, before the Antarctica acquisition.

Very pale, 4,5% ABV, etc, it´s a light beer for drink a lot in a barbecue in a hot day!!!
The bottle beer is better than the can.
