9.6666 oz bottle poured into a white wine glass · fridge temp · best by june 10th, 2011 · this beer was brewed in St. Kitts under license from Skol International

Appearance: Looks like a buttery chardonnay, with deep golden yellow hues. A quite soapy, white head builds quickly and leaves almost as fast.

Smell: Another immediate skunky aroma hits right after opening the bottle. It sticks with the beer, which isn't a good sign. Behind all that is a raw pilsner malt (think mash tun aroma) smell that is different. Corn Flakes would be a good way to describe this one. Maybe it's a stale hop aroma?

Taste: A pinchy beer reveals a minerally malt flavor along with sharp dryness. More of that familiar Corn Flake taste mixes with a bitter hop bite. Not quite the flavor slouch you'd expect.

Mouthfeel: Thin, well-carbonated, cereal, slight bitterness, no apparent alcohol.

Drinkability: Not a bad beer that drinks quickly because of the latent dryness. It really does beg for more drinking. Need to fix the skunk!

2 cans bought and consumed in Belem.
Poured pale yellow-gold with a weak white head.
Feel: watery light body with medium-high carbonation.
Flavor: Very mild and slightly sweet flavor with only a touch of hops and a short-lived aftertaste. The aroma is also very subdued.

O: Weak and light.

This is one of Brazil's most popular beers. It is seemingly everywhere, bar from soccer matches and concerts where Kaiser is usually served. This is just your typical mass-produced lager. Pours a straw yellow with a foamy white head. Taste... hmmm.. Not much of it, but it is thankfully missing some of the nasty flavors offered up by competitor Kaiser. Drinkability is decent, i guess. Not much can be said about this beer. Although I definitely enjoy having it in my hand (i'm guessing this is because of my surroundings when this beer is in my hand).

Found this at the local good beer store for $5 a sixer... not bad!

A - Looks like a plain ol' adjunct later... golden clear brew with a foamy white head.

S - Not much going on here...a bit more malty than American mass-produced lagers, but nothin' special.

T - This is somewhat boring, but it's head and shoulders above mainstream BMC stuff (at least for what it is). The solid malts are essentially what BMC should be shooting for in a mass produced and easy to drink lager, but it seems that the average palate here in the states demands LESS FLAVOR! and LESS FILLING! brew.

M - Light in body, and easy going, but full for the style. This isn't some 55 calorie bulshit.... this is a decently weighted lager.

D - Excellent for a post-workout brew or a lawn mower beer. Again, nothing about this is outstanding or even interesting, but it is a solid easy going and easy drinking lager. Someone needs to turn that interesting Dos Equis guy on to this stuff... it's honestly better that most Mexican lagers (which I would consider this brew's peers).

Skol is similiar with most American Adjunct Lagers, golden clear in color with decent carbonation that provided a foamy head to start which dissapated quickly. The smell and taste was powered by grain and some malt/hop. It is a smooth easy drinking beer that is not exotic in taste, but not bad either. Worth a try to say you did...I suppose.

Picked up a can at Euro Market in Astoria. Unsurprisingly, this is a fizzy refreshing (if you're into adjunct beer) lager. I get a hint of toasted corn in the aroma, but otherwise it's a pretty clean, crisp beer. It's not watery, but it's close. If you want a drinkable lager for, I dont know, a summer soccer match (reaching too far?), here's a decent option. Aside from the novelty of being Brazilian, there's nothing else remarkable here.

Had never drunk more drink of Brazil... It was just to meet and even appear. Yellow straw-colored translucent; the aroma sent me to childhood, in the time of holidays and birthdays, and my father (who at the time also took such a Malte 90); slightly bitter taste on the first sip, then tasteless corn. Do not lose to other common nor win.

Would prefer a Budweiser or Coors Banquet over this. One of the cheaper beers in Brazil but it's a forgettable brew. Would not pay top dollar for an import but if I ever found myself back down south I would try one of these again. It is better than the other Brazilian alternatives (Kaiser/Brahma) but it made me think twice about paying more than $5 for a good old Budweiser.

Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows sweet hay, very soft fruit and light floral notes. Hay is the dominant aroma though.
Sweet flavours; more hay, light fruity, faint vegetal notes. Not bad, although hardly what you'd call interesting.
Carbonation could be higher.
