I picked this up on a whim today.
Pours a medium golden color with a fair amount of floaties and a thinnish white head that dissipates quickly. What an odd aroma of sweet sugar and bright fruit. The smell is really sweet with no hops to be found. The flavor is just like I expected based on the aroma. Sweet and fruity without much else going on. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. There's no bottle dating that I can find but I can only assume that this bottle is on the not so fresh side. I could drink it, but I wouldn't seek it out again unless I was a whole lot closer to the source.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and grain. Taste is the same but there is an odd vegetal flavor on the finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer with an off-flavor that makes it pretty hard to drink.

I poured this not very appealing beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a really pale white washed out looking color. The beer also di not pour any head much and was quickly gone. The beer stunk like sour piss and was kinda flat. HOWEVER, the taste was not really all that bad. It actually was pretty refreshing. I would imagine getting a fresh bottle or one on tap might be pretty good. I'll give it another chance.

Bottle from Beer Crazy.

Pours a dark gold color with a good amount of foam. The aroma has a touch of citrus and some wheat. When I tasted the beer is things went all wrong. At first it wasn't bad, some sweet corn and a touch of hoppy bitterness. When I let it sit for 7 or 8 minutes and it warmed up slightly the taste turned to sour corn and the bitterness wasn't pleasant. Further tries showed the same sourness. In short, don't let the beer warm up more than 2 degrees or else it goes bad. I won't buy this again and will probably drain pour this. I'm keeping in mind this is just 1 beer, and not representative of Brazilian beer as a whole.

Served in a bottle at Sushi Samba (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours a pale straw yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a very thin film over the majority of the surface and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: This beer has a very sweet aroma, combining the sweet adjunct corn notes with something very similar to apple juice. There is just a hint of some earthy hops as well.

T: The flavor is very much dominated by the sweet adjunct corn malts, tasting a bit like corn on the cob without butter and just a hint of grain. No bitterness is present at all. Overall not as sweet as I expected from the smell.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin and watery.

O: This beer is very easy to drink and could be quite sessionable but is nothing that stands out or makes me want to have it again. Very mediocre.

2.45/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a very thin white head that quickly faded away leaving come lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell has notes of sweetness and hints of adjunct malts and apple juice.
T: The taste has flavors of cooked corn and notes of malty sweetness and hints of grain. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate, somewhat smooth and a bit thin and watery with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The light amount of sweetness in this beer is not very palatable, although the adjunct flavors aren’t as offensive compared to other adjunct lagers. It could definitely use more hops.

1.63/5  rDev -35.3%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Poured into a pils glass.

3.0 A: Clear light yellow color. One finger of frothy white head. Retention is mediocre and a short ring of lacing is left.

1.5 S: Smells mainly like white rice with a faint grainy maltiness. No depth at all.

1.5 T: Tastes like the nose. Bland as hell. How did this get labeled a "German Pilsener?"

2.0 M: Super light body. Crisp and overcarbonated. No creaminess.

1.5 D: I bought a single of this simply because I had never had it nor even heard of it. Not going to make this mistake again.
