It is not often I drink canned beer, and I don’t intend on changing this stance, but this was another present from a work colleague after his recent trip to Brazil.

A white 350ml can with a gold, red and yellow circular label. SKOL is written in metallic red letters.

The Can was taken right from the fridge and opened with no overspill. The beer pours from the can a brilliant pale yellow straw color. The head is huge, and fills my 20 fl.oz. Glass to the brim. A smooth, very white, expansive pillowy head slowly rescinds to a smooth covering of ¼”. Aromas are very clear and one-dimensional, hops with some metallic hints.

Tastes are nothing enthralling, but neither are they offensive. Introduction is bitter and has a very clean crisp hop-bitter taste. Some slight butterscotch after the beer has left the mouth, but again, not offensive or out of place. A Pilsner-style lager that is easily drinkable, but it lacks real depth of character to be anything more than a quaffable thirst quencher, which is obviously its primary rôle in Brazil.

An above average macro-produced pseudo-pilsner.

Another south american/central america beer, another pale beer. I think they push for refreshing and alcohol before flavor, but this beer was the best I tasted in Brazil. Pours very pale, with a slight and quickly disappearing head. The flavor is somewhat citrus. On a hot day at the beach in Rio, it's a great commodity. Cool, refreshing and fullfilling. The bikinis don't hurt either.

Review: Bottle of Skol lager 4.7 ABV

A crystal clear crisp pilsner. No real bite or kick to it, but went down very easily, lovely to drink actually. Nice taste, not bitter.

A lovely looking beer, a light golden color with a small head with moderate lacing. Key characteristic is that it had a very lovely aroma. Aromas of sweet corn, grains and hay.

One negative is that there is not much bang for your buck. Small bottles, dont last too long in my house, especially since Skol is so easy to drink.

Overall a nice beer, and nice for a hot day, drinking to relax.

3.16/5  rDev +27.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Moderate bone white head of which a little remains after receding. The beer is a clear, pale golden in color. No lacing.

smell: Light malt and cereal grain (rice). Light hop aroma, slight sulfur funk.

mouthfeel: High carbonation and very light body.

taste: Pretty much the same as the smell. Crisp and clean.

drinkability: Very easy and refreshing

Entered from notes taken this past summer. Cancelled Varig flight, put up in the Dobly Hotel in Guarulhos, found this Skol in my minibar. I must've drank 50 bombers of this stuff over my stay, but never got around to rating it before now.

Found this at the local good beer store for $5 a sixer... not bad!

A - Looks like a plain ol' adjunct later... golden clear brew with a foamy white head.

S - Not much going on here...a bit more malty than American mass-produced lagers, but nothin' special.

T - This is somewhat boring, but it's head and shoulders above mainstream BMC stuff (at least for what it is). The solid malts are essentially what BMC should be shooting for in a mass produced and easy to drink lager, but it seems that the average palate here in the states demands LESS FLAVOR! and LESS FILLING! brew.

M - Light in body, and easy going, but full for the style. This isn't some 55 calorie bulshit.... this is a decently weighted lager.

D - Excellent for a post-workout brew or a lawn mower beer. Again, nothing about this is outstanding or even interesting, but it is a solid easy going and easy drinking lager. Someone needs to turn that interesting Dos Equis guy on to this stuff... it's honestly better that most Mexican lagers (which I would consider this brew's peers).

Skol Beer
11.2 oz brown bottle
Jet ink on the back label - 06. 10. 2006 P2 08
Served in a pilsner glass

Pours a pale yellow with mini carbonation bubbles that race to the top of the glass. A frothy, bleach white forms top and transforms to a circular lace around the glass.

Light nose with wiffs of grains and cereal.

Grainy corn flavors with a touch of honey sweetness. Similiar qualities to a watered down pilsner. Refreshing, clean and drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: A thin layer of bubbles around the perimeter of the glass, but practically no head retention. No lacing.

S: Weak sweet aroma.

T: Best served extremely cold (-4C). It has a sweet dominating taste without any strong indication of hops.

M: Coarse in the mouth since it lacks any head and has medium-heavy carbonation.

D: Easier to drink than Bohemia since it not as bitter, however, it's ingredients/make is not as good as Bohemia. It is a better "every day beer," but it is on the sweet side so some might be turned away from it.

This is a very common and easy to find beer in Brazil; I am not sure how much different it would be when exported to the USA.

Good thirst quenching beer. Poured a typical pale yellow, with an average white head. Very hoppy smell. A little one sided, perhaps only one type of hop used, but hoppy. Little bitter taste. Not alot of malts in neither scent nor taste. Overpowered by hops, but some grassy taste and a little adjunct leave a sweet aftertaste. Good, drinkable brew on a hot, muggy day.
