A 355 ml glass bottle, served at 6° C poured into a pokal glass. Clear light yellow color with a poor head. Faint aroma with a hint of grain. Taste is similar to aroma, nothing exciting. Watery with a medium carbonation. Rather short and faint finish.

That's it Kleber, only to get high the skull, that was good kkkk! The aroma sent me, again, to my children and family parties; but after a few seconds the flavoring already gone. Golden color and a certain bitterness felt that persists at all times, unlike the aroma. Had never taken, even if it was only to swell my "tastings"...

350 ml can in Belem - 4.9%  

Nice looking white head dies down to a partial coat rather quickly but still leaves good lacing.  Fine-grained carbonation is visible carbonation in the clear, light golden body.

FEEL: Light lively body with crisp, medium-high carbonation.  Semi-dry finish. 

taste:  typical light lager with hints of cereal as well as light malts and a touch of hops. Mild but lingering aftertaste more clearly reveals the hops. 

smell: faint cereal and light malts with a touch of spicy/herbal hops.

O: about average for this style in this area. Certainly not worth seeking out but passable.

12 oz can poured into pint glass. Appearance is pale gold and clear with cascading bubbles. No head to speak of. Nose is pretty awful, notes of sour grain, lemon, corn, and metal. Taste isn't quite as bad as nose implied as there is more bready malt character to cut through some of the off notes. Some sweet fruit juice like notes that seem quite out of place come through at the finish. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. This is not a good beer, even for and already sub par style.

355ml bottle served in a weizen glass.

A: Pours an absolutely clear pale yellow forming a medium bubbled and aired head. Low retention and lots of lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet grains, crispy grains and adjunct grains, mainly corn. Low fermentation bready yeasts. Ashes in the very end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of malts and adjunct malts. Killing taste corn. Ashes sensation and a bit metallic too. Cardboard. Watery and tasteless. No bitterness identified

M: Light and watery body. Medium carbonation. Cardboard aftertaste

O: One of the worst things called beer that I've ever tasted

Pale Yellow color. Strange enough this Adjunct Lager produced lots of thick head with low to medium retention and leaving traces through the glass.
Faint aroma of non-malted cereals but some floral hops identifiable.
Taste of cereals with a bit refreshing and spicy feeling.
Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness. Light body and good carbonation.
I remembered why I could not stand Brahma and was on the Antarctica side of the split population of Brazil, for its bitterness. Nevertheless all the formulas seem to be pretty much the same now, and it carries some annoying corn note.
