look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Brazilian pale ale of a somewhat transparent and somewhat dark amber color. Foam is of beige color and a bit small, leaving at least a lace.
Smell is the good part of this beer. Strong. Malty and grainy and full of caramel notes, alcohol is noticeable but weak, what gives a nice sensation.
Taste is not bad, but is kind of "null". I just can't distinguish notes or flavours quite well. Malts and caramel, ok, and maybe some fruits. But is actually not "good".
Feel is also ok, it has body and carbonation, some bitterness and some alcoholic feel.
Well. beer is ok.

Picked up in Brazil a few days ago, shared with rudzud.

light fizzy head disappears instantly, Crystal clear copper iced tea color.

Nose earthy herbal hops, a bit if a fruity aroma, grassy and leafy hops, with some sweet copper caramel malts, a tea thing.

Taste brings sweet caramel malts, candy like but not syrupy or too sweet, light biscuit. Then herbal hops, leafy, and tea, a bit fruity, mild bitterness, etc. Finish is fair bitter, lingering herbal leafy slight herbal and tea like again, sticky sweet messy malt too.

Mouth is med bod, slight syrupy, decent carb.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this beer from Brazil.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear honey brown hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of malty cardboard, lightly stale malts, light caramel, faintly grassy and herbal.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, loads of caramel malts, lightly stale grassy hops. Mostly honey and caramel. Wet cardboard, just average.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a bit crisp albeit sweet.

O - Overall this beer was again, just okay. Quite sweet for the style.

Taking advantage of a promotion in the supermarket, even more for being classified as High Fermentation (currently priced at R$ 8.69). Less complex than the Medieval, logical, different styles, but a good opportunity for casualties and gifts.

330ml bottle served in a small chalice glass.

A: Pours a clear amber color forming a small white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention and some spotty lacings left. A thin layer remains for a long time on the top

S: Strong notes of roasted malts and toffee. Flowery hops. A bit fruity. Smells pretty much like an English bitter

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of caramel malts, toffee, caramel malts and citrus hops. In overall, a malty, roasted and dry taste. End is mild bitter. Pleasant

M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Sweet, roasted and hoppy bitter aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Nice Ale

Nice label. Made a thin head, but with a nice bright copper color.
Delicate aroma from its hops and malt, a little fruity. Good carbonation and light to medium body.
Flavor of malt and caramel with medium bitterness that fades away. Good drinkability and very well balanced. Elegant beer with a delicious taste, very good surprise, pity I am just having a small bottle of it.

355ml bottle into a glass.

A: Transparent gold with a small off-white head.

S: Biscuit with a touch of diacetyl. Bread comes out as the beer warms up, and light fruity esters become apparent, bringing to mind pear, apple, and dried date. Earthy notes are pervasive.

T: Biscuity and bready with the suggestion of caramel. I get a trace of apple that blends with earth. There's a low bitterness in the biscuity toasted finish.

M: Medium in body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth.

Overall: A really nice English Pale Mild. I'm pleasantly surprised. Well done, Brazil.

From a 355 ml bottle at Frangó, on to the beer:

Orange-amber in color, sunshine golden hues can be found in the hues of the beer. Good bubbly head and lacing. The aroma is fruity, estery. Some toast and strawberries. Hmm, strawberries preseves on bread? The taste delievers more toasty notes. Caramel, berries, and other fruity flavors are in this very fruity, estery pale ale. The carbonation is a bit more than I'd like. Buttery in the aftertaste.

Right on the money for an English-styled pale ale. London Pride may want to watch its heels for this one.
