Got this while in Brazil, at a decent wine, beer, and liquor shop in the downtown area of Larajeiras, Vitoria, E.S.
Big fizzy head fades at a medium pace over crystal clear golden yellow very light colored beer.
Nose of light pilsner and very light wheat and malts, light crisp lager, very light overall and slightly skunked despite being in a can.
Taste brings very light crisp lager pilsner flavors, an adjunct cheap malt extract taste with some skunk flavors, light icky bitterness in the finish as well. Light sweet malts and a bit of sweet lager fruits.
Mouth is super light with decent carbonation.
Drink is great though, it's essentially water, and on a super hot day in Brazil this isn't too bad to wash down, and probably safer than the water. However, that slight skunk flavor takes away a bit from the drink.

355ml can brought back by Dad from his South American excursion.
The pour is like any other adjunct lager, with a really thick head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty and corny, but not terribly offensive. Colour is really pale yellow; unfortunately there's not a whole lot going on so far.
The taste, given my expectations, is actually decent. Bit of a sour taste, although that might certainly be due to the beer's extended period in the can. However, the finish is pretty decent, and there isn't the nasty after taste that you'd get from something like Coors Light. Mouthfeel is boring, it's just a fizzy water feel.
It's nothing that I'd rush out to buy a six pack of, but I got a bunch of these Latino beers for free so I ought to give them their due. Besides, this one isn't even available in my Province. On a hot Brazilian day, I can see how this would be a popular choice. For everyday sipping though, there's better stuff out there.

Poured practically no head and left no traces. It has a pale yellow collor.
Very faint aroma, unless warm when it gets unpleasant. Good carbonation.
Very light bodied. Sweetness coming from rice and corn. Sweeter than other Braziliand adjunct lagers and less bitter. Made for mass production. In my opinion the worst adjunct lager among the comercial scale production in Brazil, given more intense flaws than its peers.
Interesting that the real chopp version (not just its name), seems to taste a little better, specially the Dark version, which is sweet but pleasant. Better to have it very fresh and at a very low temperature to numb your senses and enjoy a potential refreshing feeling.

A - pours with a small white head on a clear, straw colored body. Fades quick and leaves no lace.
S - sweet, grainy malt and little else.
T - Very thin grainy flavor; I wouldn't quite call it malt flavored, more like barley water. Just nothing else going on.
M - medium body, average carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - light, watery, no flavor, just bad.
Serving type: on-tap
