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.

Pours a pale straw yellow with a foamy white head that dissipated but still left decent lacing down the pint glass - a surprise for sure. Good carbonation and bubbles in the glass.

Some macro scents, but pretty much some light malt and grassy notes. Nothing really off here.

Light malt sweetness with some light hop bitterness and a very clean finish -- what separates this from all of the macro-crap out there is the finish. No sour bullshit, no corn, just light grain and grass. A little too light in the flavor department, but not watery. Just lacks a bit of the intensity that would put this over the edge to decent/good.

Lighter-bodied and decently carbonated- smooth, no real bite.

Overall, I expected the worst from the gift from Porto Alegre, and go something that I could put down easily around the grill -- too bad it's March. Not great, not horrible. Essentially, a better macro. This stuff blows Bud away.

My co-worker, stationed in Sao Paulo, brought me 5 samples of Brazilian beer (all pilsners) – so these are fresh (and cheap, only .50 each from a market). This was sample #4

Started off with a decent pour, a clear lite yellow with a nice white head that laced my pilsner glass quite well. Aroma is weak, just some very lite malts, on the grainy and grassy side. Taste is a weak and somewhat watery pilsner quaff – but even balanced. Just a couple notes of euro yeast in there.

A hoppy and crisp finishing little guy, a decent lawnmower brew (if you lived in Brazil). Not too bad at 4.8%abv per the can – just not anything awe-inspiring.

A true draft beer in Brazil is called Chopp. Anyone who rates Brahma Chopp and enters bottle is a Dumass. We were getting ready to kick it in Sao Paulo...but need to in fuse some Brahma Chopp.

A-4 huge white foamy head that laces well, golden clear
S-2 nothing
T-3.5 low carbonation, very smooth beer, not overly grainy
M-4 can drink a ton

Tried this one courtesy of a friend that recently traveled to Brazil.

I'm not exactly sure this one is an American Macro Lager: It doesn't seem to have corn adjuncts, maybe rice though.

Pours a light straw yellow, compact white head and amazing lacing that went all the way down my pilsener glass.

Smell is mild, but definitively malts. Just hints of hops.

Taste is crisp and refreshing. That's all.

Mouthfeel has a little carbonation, and a mildly dry and mildly bitter finish. Another surprise: It has hops in there!

Remember to review your beers according to the style so: Drinkability is high. Especially today that out side it in the mid 80's. (Yes I know, it's January, but I live in México).

So this is an American Macro Lager? I wish most American Lagers were like this. Granted, it doesn't have the aroma and complexities of some great ales. But in a hot sunny day this one hits the spot.

A little corchy aroma. BUt the appearance is good, very bubbling and very bright Yellow. I like the colour and the appearance. BUt the flavor is a little strong, but with nothing that harms your palate like Tequila. IT is curious that in Central America, is known as Brahva, perhaps because of the name Brahma, related with hot.
