I had never seen this before, so I thought I'd give it a try. Not the best idea.
Very light yellow, almost like champagne. Pours with a fluffy white head that dissipates super quickly into almost nothing. Leaves some spotty lacing.
The scent is not bad, actually. Hay and grains, apricot and peaches.
The taste, however, is well... pretty much nothing. Theres a slight fruitiness there, but really not enough to figure out what that fruit is. A little tiny metallic aftertaste.
I could see this possibly being appealing if you're, I don't know, canoing down the Amazon, and it's ice cold. Mostly because it's kind of like water. I can't see much other reason to drink it, though.

355ml single bottle - what better thing to have while watching the replay of the Brazil/Cameroon game from earlier today?
This beer pours a clear, very pale golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and chalky eggshell white head, which leaves some nice craggy webbed lace around the glass as it quickly abates.
It smells of sweet, sugary corn, rice pudding, a bit of paint thinner, bland, rather stale orchard fruit, and maybe a touch of wet, musty hay. The taste is gritty corn mash, pale grainy malt, a now indistinct, and fairly soft fruitiness, and very little in the way of hops, good or bad (so bad, by default).
The carbonation is nothing more than plainly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and kind of clammy in its generic smoothness. It finishes off-dry, strangely, a grainy mustiness cutting deeply into the lingering corn-bred sweetness.
For the proclaimed style, this is obviously a non-starter - no hops, adjunct malts, for the most part, and zero crispness. However, this is another one of those worldly 'Pils' that probably works well enough when the situation and the climate are in agreement. It may be finally summer up here where the sun doesn't really set this time of year, but I don't think I'll be grabbing any more of these, Brazil advancing or not.
