Had a good experience drinking the beer (I was in Brazil and watching Brazil play Argentina in Soc--um, Football).

Went shopping on a miserably rainy day, saw the bar and said, its 1030 AM, time for a beer.

Appearance: lovely dark with dark highlights with a nice thick, pillowy tan head that takes several seconds to subside in order to see the beer. Medium lacing.

Aroma: Sweet, a lot of sugar, tiny hints of malt, even less hints of a citrusy hops.

Taste: It helps that I have a sweet tooth. Otherwise, this beer would not have worked for me at all. Tasted like pure sugar. No complexities to this, just candy-like sweetness with a tiny tiny tiny bit of cereal.

I don't dislike sweet beers, in fact I quite like them (something else which helped the rating) but it just did not work at all for the style. The whole time I was drinking it, I kept saying, wow, for a bock, this is a horrible flavor. No matter what, I just could not get over the fact that the flavor did not work for the style.

Mouthfeel - wonderful. The sugars caused and required the beer to be smooth. Felt like liquid velvet or a melted milkshake almost.

Drinkability- due to the sweetness it was very easy to drink.

One of the redeeming qualities of this beer (and the fact there are many it still gets rated as mediocre should say something) is that it was good to have a Brazilian beer with some bloody flavor for a change.
