This is beer #4 from my Brazilian swill tick pack. Pours a light pale clear golden with white head and a nice amount of retention. The nose is nondescript. Some mild grainy notes with a touch of corny sweetness, zero hop character. Taste is much like the nose, very nondescript. This could be perceived as a good thing for the style as it is light, there aren't significant flavors that are offensive, and is easy drinking. For my palate, it is just boring and watered down. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. This beer is exactly what it intends to be, light flavorless swill that could be consumed in mass quantities on a summer day if one so desires. This is not something I am going to recommend people to seek out, however it is definitely more palatable (read: less offensive) than many others in the style.

While this beer pours a gold yellow body with little head, that dissipate instantly.

There is no smell or there is a metalic smell.

The alcoholic flavor is surprising but terrible. Surprising given the 4,6% of alcohol that hints refreshing beer, but reveals itself as a sickening beer with some bottles behind.

The mouthfeel isn't good with alcohol warmth and much carbonation.

A real poor "pilsener" as the brazilian calls this bad american adjuct lager.

Almost a copy paste of other mass Brazilian lagersPale yellow color. Head dissipates quickly. Smells mostly grains other than barley-malt and metalic, dependant on temperature.
Tastes lager with just a small hint of hops and  addition of water. Taste is also not consistent on different temperatures, as it warms up gets a little metalic. Some unpleasant sweetness from cheap cereals, and a little funky aftertaste.
Beer to drink close to freeze temperatures, to hightlight refreshness from its lightness and high carbonation. The tap chopp version , specially the dark one tastes much better, probably given its freshness. I guess aging is a killer for those type of pseudo pilseners.
Intersting that I have the impression that Brazilians slams this beer more than others, probably given the exotic effect are nule to them (including this brazuca one).
