look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a yellow body with a with head with no rentention.

S: Undetectable in the right temperature, metallic when the beer warm it up.

T: Weak and very refreshing with high carbonation, must be served extremely cold, or the drinkability will decrease to the illness.

M: The high carbonation and low temperature make a freshness mouthfeel. Despite that theres nothing to be found here, as is common in the style.

O: A refreshing beer to be drinking in extremely low temperatures with a good drinkability in that condiction, when the beer gets warm, it becomes very awful.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured from a 269ml can into a pint glass

A: Pours a completely clear, light golden color. There is a huge, bright white foam head of 2+ fingers which fades moderately quickly to a cap and ring of foam.

S: Smells of sweet grains. Very little else.

T: Sweet grain is the theme here. Maybe some corn? Very light touch of noble hops provides some grass to counter the sweetness. Faint presence of alcohol. Short finish.

M: Surprisingly low carbonation detracts from the experience. A little thicker than your standard BMC product.

O: Standard macro fare. Somewhat sweeter and thicker than many other adjunct lagers.

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.

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.

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.

A: Pours crystal clear pale yellow with a frothy white head. Very good head retention is present as well as moderate amounts of lacing. Some visible carbonation is also present.

S: Aromas of corn and grains with just a hint of sweet lemon.

T: Very light flavored but the primary flavor I get is a kind of waxy sweet lemon (similar to lemonade or shandy). Not much complexity and very little bitterness. Overall kind of watery.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Having also tried this beer on tap when I was in Sao Paulo, it is not any different from the can - and just as I remembered it. Could be refreshing on a really hot day but not really anything special. Almost tastes like a PBR with just a hint of lemon pledge in it.
