look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high foamy white head.
S: There are aromas of sweet corn in the nose along with some hints of lemon.
T: The beer is somewhat sweet and has flavors of corn.
M: It feels light-bodied and somewhat watery on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but nothing really stands out in the taste that would make me want to try it again.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Moderate bone white head of which a little remains after receding. The beer is a clear, pale golden in color. No lacing.

smell: Light malt and cereal grain (rice). Light hop aroma, slight sulfur funk.

mouthfeel: High carbonation and very light body.

taste: Pretty much the same as the smell. Crisp and clean.

drinkability: Very easy and refreshing

Entered from notes taken this past summer. Cancelled Varig flight, put up in the Dobly Hotel in Guarulhos, found this Skol in my minibar. I must've drank 50 bombers of this stuff over my stay, but never got around to rating it before now.

A product of Ambev, this beer is a commercial lager style, made for a mass of consumers wishing to drink something (slightly) different than water. It´s not too different in comparison with their competitors, many of them also produced by Ambev (Antarctica, Brahma, Bohemia, Original).
A pale lager beer, with low bitterness (around 10 IBU), Original Gravity around 11 Plato. Almost no fermentation aroma.

Well, the only purpose of this is to make you drink a lot of it in a hot day...

Straight pour from 630ml bottle to Pilsner / Pokal glass

Appearance (2.0): Very light golden in color, one finger head fading to very thin disc of bone-white head with very little lacing.

Smell (1.5): This has AAL written all over it. Faintly sweet and processed, no bitterness apparent whatsoever.

Taste (2.0): More or less following the nose, but with just a bit of the crisp malt body that you’d expect from this kind of beer. Nothing pronounced about it, just very light and processed. Tastes like water mixed with sweet pilsner.

Mouthfeel (2.0): Watery. No body to speak of, and the carbonation is very slight to begin with, and fades anyway.

Overall (2.0): This is basically Bud Light in Brazil. Is it good? No. Is it everywhere? Yes. Is it cheap? Yes. Are you going to drink it? Almost inevitably. Can you enjoy it? Sure, on a hot day or night with a bunch of friends around, a few bottles of Skol is just fine. But as far as beer goes, even if it’s not the worst thing out there, it’s not great, to say the least.

The first of two 473 ml cans brought to me by my friend's mother on a visit from Brazil (note my friend and his wife both said to drink this ice cold, I tried it this way and also let it warm up a bit). Pours very pale yellow to very light golden in color, with a thick (1.5 fingers) white head. The head quickly disappears, leaving just a hint of lacing on the glass. Nearly no aroma is present, perhaps a slight smell of grass. Taste is nearly flavorless, there is a bit of dryness in the finish, but otherwise its very, very plain--the flavor isn't offensive or bad in anyway, its just not there. This is definitely an easy drinking beer, going down quite smooth in a thin, watery sorta way. Certainly not a beer I would look forward to (if for no other reason than its absence of flavor), but it is fairly good at being what it is--a potentially refreashing beer in a hot climate.
