1.58/5  rDev n/a
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Straight pour from twist-off, foil-wrapped 355ml bottle to small tumbler; best by date of December 6, 2011 printed on label (06/12/11)

Appearance (2.0): Body is a crystal-clear (fittingly), sunshine-yellow with a fat, full finger of very, very fine head fading relatively quickly to a thin, translucent, creamy cap. Lots of very fine bubbles.

Smell (1.5): N/A? Faint scent of lightly sweet malts. No hops in the nose.

Taste (1.5): First comes a mild, crisp-to-bitter wave, which fades to be replaced with a kind of mildly sour aftertaste. Underneath all of this is pale malt mixed with a faint corn flavor. Super-pasteurized, adjuncted to hell, is how this tastes.

Mouthfeel (2.0): Smooth, but very light, carbonation. Disappears quickly.

Overall (1.5): Just . . . don’t. Second Brazilian beer I’ve had with “Premium” in the name, and the second F rating I’ve given. May be a trend. Friends don’t let friends drink Crystal Premium, especially when there are so many other, more easily obtainable, and even more inexpensive examples of this style to be had.
