Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle.
Pours a light yellow color with lots of floaty bits in suspension. Has a tiny dismal head that barely lasts.
There really is not much of an aroma. Smells of corn is really all I can detect. Extremely bland. Some grainy aromas come through, but not very much.
Not much taste either. The taste that is there is a bit corny. Some doughy taste there too, very bland and boring. Slight bitterness on the finish. Also some maltiness appears as it warms. Light watery mouthfeel. Not very drinkable. Might be freshness issues, there is a number on the label that says "M080722", don't know if that's a freshness date. Even if it is, I have had other beers of this style 3 months past their date that tasted far better than this one.
Probably wouldn't have this one again.

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.
