Another hard to describe south american beer.
Very pale, with a white head that is rather small but perhaps secondary to it being very cold.
Smells of really nothing but alcohol/beer, a little better than Budweiser. Thin on the palate, with very little taste but refreshing.
Other than that, nothing special. Very weak overall.
I had maybe half of it, and discarded the remaining.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Pours a pale yellow with a thin layer of head that leaves some lacing. The smell is heavy on musty/corn/graininess with no hops and some syrupy sweetness. Taste is flavorless upfront followed by corn and grain followed by a heavy metallic note. Flavors are neither clean nor refreshing, this one is pretty bad.

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.

That's one of the most popular beers in Brazil (and I've spent many years of my life drinking it, unfortunately). In the end, one more mass production "beer" from Ambev.

A: Clear pale yellow color and a huge aired and bubbled head. Nevertheless, the concentration of bubbles in the bottom looks like it's artificially carbonated. Well, so far, it looks like a real beer :))

S: Not much to tell here. Cheap corn, some malts... A bit stinky to tell you the true

T: I'm still looking for the taste. Couldn't find it. Really tasteless... Additionally, no bitterness! For god's sake, this is meant to be a Beer so, where are the hops?!

M: Very light and watery body. High carbonation

D: If you can, avoid it. If you can't, well... avoid it anyway... :p

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. pours a light straw color with a finger of white head. crystal clear.

smell is malty, pale and munich, with a hint of a floral base and a touch of caramel. not much on the hop side. there is a slight skunky character as well.

taste is not impressive. there is a light malt flavor up front, though very watered down. there is also a grainy character, which is also very subtle. finishes on a light malt note that turns into a corn-mash flavor. this is too watered down to be refreshing.

mouthfeel is light-bodied, with a watery texture and a light bite from carbonation.

drinkability is good, if one enjoys water with a touch of flavoring in it. if the flavors were intensified two-fold, then they might have a decent brew here.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A- 2 fingers of persistant off-white head, carbonation throughout a clear gold body. Definately not outstanding

S- Sweet grains with some fruityness and a hint of butterscotch are hidden beneath a layer of skunk.

T- Not astounding. Very watery start leads to ethanol middle a a stronger hops end. A bitter aftertaste that lingers on with the rotten veggies.

M- Clean, mostly beacause it's watery. Leaves very little on palate.

D- Easy to down but I wouldn't want another... probably ever.

350 ML can. Poured into a fruit juice-sized glass. Freshness date stamped on side.
It pours a pale yellow gold with a snow-white head.
It smells mainly of fresh mowed lawn with a bit of grainy malt.
The malt body is thin and weak. A taste reminiscent of cornflakes comes to mind. A mild grainy malt taste is in the background.
The hop bitterness is made up of a very mild citrusy taste, then a touch of a harsh metallic bite. This beer tastes a little old and moldy. There’s a lightly waxy mouthfeel and no really redeeming factors to this brew.

It poured no head. Faint aroma of cereals, not malty.
Good carbonation and very light body.
Taste follows aroma (including its intensity), sweetness from corn mostly. I could not feel no bitterness whatsoever and had a rather watery ending. Refreshing while cold though.

Skol didn't really show too much more than just being another Adjunct Lager. This flavor is crisp and a bit on the dry side. The color is yellow and has a minimal head on it. The smell is of grains and malts. Not much hops. This is a regular drinking social type of beer. Fun it you want to try something from another country but that's about all.

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).
