My girlfriend brought me back a bottle of this from her recent trip to Rio. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pilsener glass.

a - Pours a very transparent yellow color with high carbonation evident and one inch of white head.

s - Smells of bready malts, grains, sour, skunky notes, and light vegetables. Not very enjoyable at all.

t - Tastes of stale bready malts, sour, skunky notes, grains, and rice. A bit of a step down from the nose; not very good at all.

m - Light body and high carbonation that stings the tongue. Overcarbonated.

o - Overall not a very good beer. Smell is a bit skunked and the taste is stale and skunked. Wouldn't seek this one out, actually worse than bohemia.

So, I see a stack of shrink-wrapped 6 packs in a tiny local store and give it a try. $13! But hey it's new to me, it's an import from Brazil, why not? I get home and pop a can and the unusual smell I would best describe as a fish broth stock pot. Not necessarily bad, just unusual. Poured beautifully with a 3" white head which took quite awhile to slowly recede. Body is a standard pilsner clear straw yellow. Taste initially had some of the grassy grainy taste of a pilsner but as it sat and warmed it became just sort of water with a hint of sweetness. So compared to other mainstream pilsners I'd give it an edge on appearance and a demotion on taste.

Wimpy head of less than an finger, but the lace had some clinging power. Color matched a 4 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell was a little harsh and of wet corn, and veggies. Taste was refreshing, with flavors of cereal grains, citrus and malt. Mouthfeel was lacking any real body and creaminess, but did have some fizz. Good beer to drink with the locals on St Kitts. The view of the clear blue water makes the experience of drinking beer on the beach, much better.

Straight pour from 630ml bottle to Pilsner / Pokal glass

Appearance (2.0): Very light golden in color, one finger head fading to very thin disc of bone-white head with very little lacing.

Smell (1.5): This has AAL written all over it. Faintly sweet and processed, no bitterness apparent whatsoever.

Taste (2.0): More or less following the nose, but with just a bit of the crisp malt body that you’d expect from this kind of beer. Nothing pronounced about it, just very light and processed. Tastes like water mixed with sweet pilsner.

Mouthfeel (2.0): Watery. No body to speak of, and the carbonation is very slight to begin with, and fades anyway.

Overall (2.0): This is basically Bud Light in Brazil. Is it good? No. Is it everywhere? Yes. Is it cheap? Yes. Are you going to drink it? Almost inevitably. Can you enjoy it? Sure, on a hot day or night with a bunch of friends around, a few bottles of Skol is just fine. But as far as beer goes, even if it’s not the worst thing out there, it’s not great, to say the least.

A- 2 fingers of persistant off-white head, carbonation throughout a clear gold body. Definately not outstanding

S- Sweet grains with some fruityness and a hint of butterscotch are hidden beneath a layer of skunk.

T- Not astounding. Very watery start leads to ethanol middle a a stronger hops end. A bitter aftertaste that lingers on with the rotten veggies.

M- Clean, mostly beacause it's watery. Leaves very little on palate.

D- Easy to down but I wouldn't want another... probably ever.

Skol is similiar with most American Adjunct Lagers, golden clear in color with decent carbonation that provided a foamy head to start which dissapated quickly. The smell and taste was powered by grain and some malt/hop. It is a smooth easy drinking beer that is not exotic in taste, but not bad either. Worth a try to say you did...I suppose.

Poured from a 269ml can into a pint glass

A: Pours a completely clear, light golden color. There is a huge, bright white foam head of 2+ fingers which fades moderately quickly to a cap and ring of foam.

S: Smells of sweet grains. Very little else.

T: Sweet grain is the theme here. Maybe some corn? Very light touch of noble hops provides some grass to counter the sweetness. Faint presence of alcohol. Short finish.

M: Surprisingly low carbonation detracts from the experience. A little thicker than your standard BMC product.

O: Standard macro fare. Somewhat sweeter and thicker than many other adjunct lagers.
