600 mL bottle courtesy of DoubleJ, thanks Jon,

A: Pours a dark goldenrod with a light white head, average retention and lace.

S: Hint of diacetyl with the noble hopping. Smells English.

T: Tastes like a bitter mixed with a pils which isn't a bad thing. Diacetyl causes a problem but the hoppy earthy grassy finish is quite enjoyable.

M: Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a lingering enjoyable hoppy aftertaste.

O: Not a bad beer, Jon said it was better in Brasil and I believe him. The travel has hurt it a bit, but I hope to try it at its source on day. I know how good Wals can be.

355 ml bottle at Beertaste in Rio de Janeiro, on to the beer:

A great looking beer. Ring after ring of lacing stick to the glass of this golden colored beer, and I should mention that the head retention is great as well. Hops and more hops, claim the nose. Slightly herbal as well. Like the aroma, it is a hoppy beer in flavor. It´s not overkill hoppy though. There is plenty of hop bitterness to go around, and then some to be shared around. Some citrus and grapefruit emerge from the hoppy goodness of this pilser. The aftertaste lingers with a pleasant bitterness.

Is Wäls the best brewer to come out of Brazil? They brew an enjoyable light lager, a tasty tripel, a quadilicious quadrupel, and now a pleasing pilsner. And to think that it´s just 5% ABV. I´ll take this over a Prima Pils, which tells you how much I enjoyed this beer.
