On-tap at the Lord Jim Pub in Rio de Janeiro. I drank two glasses while I was there, as a "buy one, get one free" promotion was offered. On to the beer:

It is a yellow colored beer with a touch of gold. Somewhat persistent is the head. It has a sweet aroma consisting of notes of reminds me most of cream ales. Like the aroma, the taste is sweet as well, but the notes are a little bit different. There's a little honey and vanilla. Sweet like Nilla Wafers. Not too sweet for me though, and without any off-flavors.

Pretty solid overall. I knocked back the two glasses without much problem.

It seems that the name changed to Império.
Light Golden color with a thick three fingers head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of malt sweetness and herbal hops.
Flavor with notes of bread malt, a bit of hay and floral and herbal hops. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light bordering watery body with appropriate carbonation.
Refreshing thirst quencher Pils. No big thrills but also no off-flavors.
