Beer served with lime wedge. Very average apperance, very golden hue and transparent. No head or lace with tiny bubbles. It has a very overwhelming lime aroma, smells sour and yeasty. The taste is very refreshing, sweet with the lime taste. It has a somewhat watery mouthfeel. I find this a slightly better corona but a good summer beer. If i tried this again i would like it without the lime because i found it overpowering.

I just read an Article in Maxim magazine; 100 Best Beers. Brahma it turns out was an Editors' pick. All I can say is the Editor must also think Miller Chill is a gourmet brew! I wasted $8.99 on a six pack of this stuff based on the Article. FOOL ME ONCE! The best think about this "Bier" is the curvy, sexy bottle. The contents are disappointing; thin, fruity, the head disappeared in seconds, and lacing too. Save your Beer $$ for something else. 2 Mugs Down!

Single, twelve-ounce bottle just copped from Total Wine and More in West Orange...
Although not my first beer from a Brazillian brewery, this was a pleasing sample nonetheless...
Average appearance, pouring a clear, lucid, golden-hue with slight carbonation, a minimal head and no apparent lacing...
Crisp, clean, refreshing flavor with no alcohol detected whatever the ABV is...
Medium-bodied mouthfeel along with a surprisingly good level of drinkability...
Worth a shot...

This is really not different than the "regular" Brahma. Pale yellow with a fomay white head, alcohol smell, watered taste of alcohol and somewhat fruity, very thin, easy to drink but overall very poor.
Do not waste your time; even if you like this "style", just get the "plain" Brahma; same (lack of) taste, a little cheaper.

Brahma Bier, a special edition beer for the germany soccer world cup, is a pale lager with more extract and alcohol content (4.9%). It offers not too much in comparison to the other brazilian lagers, except a higher bitterness and an alcoholic character that seems stronger than its alcohol content shows. Probably due to an increased level of higher alcohols.

This beer is being marketed as a "helles", and that's why I added it with that beer style.
There's a big marketing campaign here in Brazil for this beer, and it's being sold as a beer specially made for the '06 World Cup.

For me, it looked, smelled and tasted pretty much the same as Brahma's other macros. Faint, watered down taste, not much of a smell, and that "fizzy yellow water" mouthfeel. I was hoping for more.

Even though the can says "helles", I would have to say this reminded me too much of your standard macro lager.
