2.3/5 rDev -3.8%
A: Poured a clear bright gold with a compact, sudsy white head that quickly collapsed leaving no visible lacing. Visible carbonation was moderately strong and feverish.
S: light dried lemon-hay notes with some fresh grains.
T: started out spritzy with lemon peels and a touch of dry grains and hay. Was fairly dry in nature overall with a brisk lemon hopping on the finish.
M: seltzer like, with a strong carbonation, edgy feel and active, but light in viscosity and watery for the most part.
D: Relatively non-offending for the most part flavor-wise with the exception of the watery feel and overactive carbonation in the mouthful which hinders the drinkability.

should score points on the ergonomic bottle design
average looking lager...bone white head that receded quite quickly to a very thin white ring. Weak lacing
not getting a lot nasal wise..some weak grainy malt and some adjuncts...maybe corn..?
faint bready malt and sweetness from corn adjuncts no doubt. Found the finish to be fairly dry.
thin and quite watery mouthfeel
Did I mention the cool bottle? Good. Because that's about all this beer has going for it vs. the cost. No wonder Molson had to climb into bed with Coors after they bought into this dog.

Pours a golden color with a small amount of creamy white head that fades away pretty quickly but does lace the glass. Smells slightly yeasty, and that's about it. The taste is about the same, slightly yeasty, and that's about it. I can't taste any malt or hop flavor in it. Mouthfeel is a little heavy, and slightly tingly, but mostly watery. Overall, it's pretty drinkable, as it makes no statements.

another in a long long list of bbq/lawnmowing beers. you can find better, you can find cheaper, you can find better and cheaper. if i was in south america i would get it again. here there are too many better alternatives.
that being said it is not bad. adjunct. poured golden with good carbonation. decent smell of grains. taste is much the same. nothing to write home about. no lace.
suckem up and movem out.

Overall I was not impressed with Brahma. I must say I do prefer the Brahma Extra (whatever that means) to this one. Really this beer has no smell or taste, if anything it's bread flavored water...and a carbonated alternative to soda on hot days in Brazil. I really can't say much more other than this stuff is EVERYwhere...there's no escaping it's blandness.
If you must drink Brahma, try to go for the "Extra". Extra what though?

12fl.oz.clear bottle pours gold with a disappearing white bubble head, lace= none. Not much in the way of carbonation, a few bubbles rising.
Sweet grainy pale malt nose with a green, grassy hop hint. Smells a bit like piss.
Bready malt, faintly sweet with yeast and green grassy hops that bitter your tongue in the finish. Flavor is ok, but very short lasting.
Light body with a rather thin, watery mouthfeel and that fizz on the tongue thing.
Very much an American macro, not much going on with this one.

I tried this after work tonight since my boss lives and dies by it.
Presentation: Drank from 12oz bottle
Appearance: Besides the cool shaped bottle, theres nothing here to jump out of your chair about. Standard "tint yellow" appearance, little to no head, no lacing, why was I expecting that?
Smell: Your standard macro smell here, nothing pops or stands out here at all, grainy and lemon smell, similar to a Corona
Taste: This beer is as meek as all it's other characteristics, this is basically a more watered down Corona, the taste is bearable but not exciting. Strong lemony earth taste as it hits the back of your throat, but thats about as much excitment as this beer can muster
Drinkability: Very drinkable, just wouldn't be able to drink more then 2 since this beer leaves nothing to make me buy it again. Plain, average and boring is the best 3 words I can sum this beer up with. Although it's a good choice for a decent macro, I wouldn't go out of the way to drink this, stick to Corona with a lime.

I remember the launch of this a number of years ago, and the feeling that it was just a thinly-veiled addition to the BMC club, with a Latin marketing edge. Let's see about that.
The bottle is admittedly pretty cool, its contoured swoopiness fits in the hand quite nicely.
This beer pours a clear golden colour, with minimal white head. The smell is mild sweet grain cracker malt. The taste is sweet grassy malt, with an acrid astringency. There is a bit too much carbonation, and it has a dry finish, with a slight skunkiness. A bit better than average for the category, but one is still more than enough.

A- Gloden and lot's of bubbles, even a little head.
S- Smells like grain and cardboard
T- Not much taste at all, watery grain with a metallic aftertaste
D- Easy to drink except it's boring and overpriced. I paid $2 for a bottle but I won't bother buying it again.
