OK... why not?

Appearance: very pale gold/yellow, flacid layer of white spittle-like foam that slowly fades out of existance

Aroma: like Corona with a little Heineken drizzled into it (can't get any more descriptive than that)

Flavor: soft sweetness with a touch of grain in the background; canned pineapple fruitiness; hint of iron; finishes semi-dry with a "beer-like" aftertaste

Mouthfeel: light body, pin-prick carbonation, soft texture

Other comments: Tesco (a supermarket) dropped the price of a twelve-pack of Brahma from £9.99 to £4.99 because they weren't selling. Looks like it's time for me to try this latest atrocity from InBev (I was very pleased to see that they had to severely slash the price to make it sell). I can now confirm that it is not worth the time, money, effort, and pollution to import something like this to ANY country that has plenty of good beer made within its shores. Keep this crap in Brazil! Having said that, it's drinkable on a hot day if you get it nice and cold.

I tried this beer because I have never had anything from Brazil. It is nothing to write home about really. I guess you could chug it down at a party, but its not the slow drinking, sipping, and enjoying kind of beer. I would say it is a little bit better than a Corona. Atleast it is something you don't have to kill with a lime. I guess I would drink it again if someone handed me one. It wasn't a total failure, but was lacking some taste. It kinda reminds me of every run of the mill beer I used to chug in college.

Pours a clear gold with a good head and decent carbonation. Looks a lot better than it does in the hideous clear bottle for sure. Decent lace--better than avg here.

Smell is somewhat unpleasant. Elements of corn and grass --doesnt even have the ballpark swill smell which does have some endearing quality to it. It is almost vinous which is absolutely disgusting for a beer in this category.

Taste is not quite a drain pour but lets face it--its not real good. PBR, Coors original or Yuengling are much better than this from a macro standpoint.

This might be good on a really hot day as it is light and watery and thats when these type beers taste better but I would still avoid.
