Not only does the label look American, but the design reminds me of some of the Bear Republic labels (especially Racer 5). Brazilian-American pale ale, brought to me by my friend Guilherme (valeu!), on to the beer:

Somebody forgot to filter the beer. This is a muddy orange looker, but it does manage to have a decent head and retention. There's some American accent in the aroma, being a soft sting of pine. It also has a mineraly and toffee note too. The taste is where parts of the beer aren't in-sync. There isn't much American pale ale hop love, but at least the bitterness level is decent. It's rather woody and offers maple notes. It also has some oxidation. It's medium bodied, leaving a dry finish afterwards.

This is the first Mistura Clássica which didn;t impress me much despite much anticipation. Take out the oxidation and this could be a solid little beer instead of being okay.

Interesting bottle, painted with a copper wine color and a cheesy red neck label.
Amber copper color with lots of head with good retention leaving laces.
Fruity aroma from its hops.
Similarly, hoppy flavor with notes of grapefruit and flowers. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a bit of toasted malts.
Faithful to style. Good APA, hard to say it is a Brazilian brew on a blind taste.
