On a recent business trip to Brazil, I had the chance to try this brew in a wonderful seafood restaurant, near the water in Santos. From a very chilled large bottle, the beer is completely clear, yellow-gold in complexion, and topped with a fizzy white head. The aroma is grainy...think macro adjunct lager. The taste is light, crisp, and has a little sweetish pale malt. It reminded me of a normal European lager. Light in body and mostly forgettable.

Golden color with a thin bright white head with low retention. Light aroma of an Adjunct Lager, notes of bready malt and adjuncts. Hints of herbal hops and some butter in its finish. No aftertaste. Taste of pale malt, corn and herbal hops. Light body with good carbonation. An average Adjunct Lager with a corn taste that bothers a little. To be drunk without much reasoning and better with barbecue to distract it from it. Don't let it warm up, with time I was lowering the score bit by bit.
