350 ml cans in Brazilian Amazon and again at Manuas aeroporte.
Initially decent but weak white head over a clear, light golden body. Light colored even for style. OK lacing. FEEL: Light body with crisp, medium-high carbonation. taste: typical light lager with hints of cereal as well and light malts and a touch of hops. Mild but lingering aftertaste more clearly reveals the herbal hops as well as some metallic aspects. smell: faint cereal and light malts with a touch of spicy hops. O: average at best for this style in northern Brazil. Certainly not worth seeking out.

355ml can brought back by Dad from his South American excursion.

The pour is like any other adjunct lager, with a really thick head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty and corny, but not terribly offensive. Colour is really pale yellow; unfortunately there's not a whole lot going on so far.

The taste, given my expectations, is actually decent. Bit of a sour taste, although that might certainly be due to the beer's extended period in the can. However, the finish is pretty decent, and there isn't the nasty after taste that you'd get from something like Coors Light. Mouthfeel is boring, it's just a fizzy water feel.

It's nothing that I'd rush out to buy a six pack of, but I got a bunch of these Latino beers for free so I ought to give them their due. Besides, this one isn't even available in my Province. On a hot Brazilian day, I can see how this would be a popular choice. For everyday sipping though, there's better stuff out there.

Poured practically no head and left no traces. It has a pale yellow collor.
Very faint aroma, unless warm when it gets unpleasant. Good carbonation.
Very light bodied. Sweetness coming from rice and corn. Sweeter than other Braziliand adjunct lagers and less bitter. Made for mass production. In my opinion the worst adjunct lager among the comercial scale production in Brazil, given more intense flaws than its peers.
Interesting that the real chopp version (not just its name), seems to taste a little better, specially the Dark version, which is sweet but pleasant. Better to have it very fresh and at a very low temperature to numb your senses and enjoy a potential refreshing feeling.
