2.03/5 rDev -25.6%
355 mL bottle, courtesy of DoubleJ,
A: Pours a lightly hazy gold, with a light white head, solid retention, no lace.
S: Mild grainy notes, carbonic acid.
T: Very grainy flavour, no hop character, kind of chemically, bit of DMS.
M: Light-bodied, crisp, biting carbonation.
D: Not really a fan of this one. The flavour isn't terrible, but it kind of sucks. Not interesting at all.

330ml bottle poured in Pilsen glass.
A: Pours a very pale clear yellow color. Forms a big white bubbled white head when poured. Medium retention and not much lacings left
S: Smells like a cheap beer. Actually, smells like a cheap adjunct lager. Caramel malts and corn. Killer
T: Follows the nose, I mean, not much taste at all. Very watery. The mild taste is really bad. Corn, again. A bit of bad quality hops too
M: Very light body with artificial high carbonation. Watery and not bittter enough to a called Pilsener beer
O: Average bad quality Brazilian large scale producing beer. Once in Brazil, look for an Eisenbah, Baden Baden or something else from a smaller producer. About this one: JUST AVOID IT!

Girlfriend brought this back from Rio for me. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Czechvar pilsener glass, as the bottle says it's a pilsener.
a - Pours a very clear golden-yellow color with one finger of white head and high carbonation evident. Head lasts for a few minutes and then leaves half an inch throughout. One of the most transparent beers I've seen.
s - Smells of grain, bready malts, rice/wheat. Not awful, but pretty bland and below average. At least it's not offensive.
t - Tastes of grain, bready malts, wheat. Again, pretty bland, but a slight step up from the nose.
m - Light body and high carbonation that stings the tongue. Way too carbonated.
o - Overall just not a ton to say about this one. Not the worst beer I've had, but very bland and just kind of there. Not worth seeking out.

This beer pours a clear pale yellow iwth a medium white head that dissipates to nothing. The smell is malty and grainy. The taste is mild watery malt with a faint hoppiness and sweet grainy overtones. The mouthfeel as expected is quite thin. Fairly clean and drinkable for a mass produced pilsner.

350 ml bottle in Belem. [3.1 2.5 2.7 3 2.7]
Weak head despite high amount of visible carbonation in the clear, light golden body. OK lacing.
FEEL: Light lively body with crisp, medium-high carbonation.
taste: typical light lager with hints of cereal as well and light malts and a touch of hops. Mild but lingering aftertaste more clearly reveals the hops.
Smell: faint cereal and light malts with a touch of spicy hops.
O: about average for this style in this area. Certainly not worth seeking out but passable.

Straight pour from 12oz can to Pilsner / Pokal glass
Appearance (3.5): Very light golden, perfectly clear. Most interesting thing is the bone-white, two-finger head that lasts for a decent period of time, with some light lacing. Not much, but some.
Smell (2.0): Almost non-existent, but what’s there is light, mildly sweet malts. No bitterness detected in the nose. Just very light malt tones.
Taste (2.5): Following the nose, but more pronounced. Any hop bitterness that may be present is tied into the crisp feel of the light pilsner malts used here. Very light, slightly biscuity. Almost no bitterness. Hops are almost non-existent here, too.
Mouthfeel (4.0): Light and crisp, no sense of hop oils or malt thickness. Body is essentially water. There is, however, decent carbonation—nice and just barely prickly on the tongue. Smooth.
Overall (3.0): Brazilian beers are generally golden, light lagers—pilsners and AALs are the rule for the most common beers in Brazil. The difference between Brazilian common beer like this and American common beer, however, is in the mouthfeel. If poured right, the head and slight lacing both serve as evidence to the main differences between common Brazilian and common American beers, too. The flavor is similar, though Brazilian beers like this are generally a little cleaner and crisper, in a way. There’s an expression in Portuguese that very much sums up how these beers are meant to be enjoyed, and helps to explain the culture in Brazil around drinkability: estupidamente gelada, or “stupidly cold.” This beer is okay. It’s not great, but it’s what you get most of the time in Brazil, and not without reason.
