Look out American macro beer, I have here a beer double filtered below 0 degrees Celsius! An easy tick for sure, as a single 350 ml can cost me pocket change. Consumed in my hotel room in Copacabana, on to the beer:

The beer is nearly pee yellow in color. Short patchy headwork rests on top this beer. I smell, I'm not impressed. Who fermented rice with my guaraná? Ok, so it smells like weird fermented rice. Even Budweiser smells better than this. Taste it...I taste something woody. Weird. It could be classified as yet another failed Brazilian Corn Beer, but I don't taste said adjunct; I get rice. This beer is boring is possibly offensive. Even the fizzy carbonation and weak light body are enough to arouse my interest in this beer.

There's no need for this. But I'm sure that the one executive of AmBev who was behind this beer made a lot of money with this failure of an idea.

For the record, when I wanted to fill the can with little money but a lot of sadness in the heart. Was initiating the path of alcohol, due to the troubles of life, and did not yet know the pure malts. The Sub-Zero is like drinking water with alcohol, very cold, but... in this case, prefer cold water only and avoid the metal and chemical troubles (unless you want to get high).

Pale yellow color with a fluffy head that dissipated quickly.
Faint aroma of cereals.
Light and quite watery taste of corn with bitterness almost no present. Though refreshing and with a mild spicy sensation, in part due to its good carbonation.
Same Adjunct lager story. The only thing cool about it is its temperature sensitive can which changes color when it is really cold, which is essential for this type of beers being drinkable.

600ml bottle served in an ordinary glass.

A: Pours a pale yellow clear color forming a small fluffy head. Good retention but only few lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet grains... corn... aroma hops somewhere far away...

T: Mild sweet grains upfront. Lager yeasts. Cardboard and lots of corn

M: Very light watery body. Medium to high carbonation. Mild sweet grains aftertaste

O: Disgusting beer. Veeeery watery. Usual corn tasting Brazilian large production Adjunct Lager
