May 2011: 355 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. I felt compelled to sample this beer - Brazil is such a big country, and I was kind of shameful for not having sampled any of their beers previously ... ABV is 4.5%. Very pale yellow colour, moderate white head. Sweetish, sugary and grainy aroma, hints of maize - but not awful. Bland and "dusty" flavour, fairly dry and thus kind of refreshing when ice cold, but the bitterness is very low, and there are hardly any flavour elements worth mentioning. Utterly forgettable. For the sake of Brazilian beer entusiasts, if they exist: I do hope you have access to better beers than this!

12oz bottle coded J048 1543 poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temp 4.7% ABV per label. The beer pours bright light straw yellow with off white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is faint with light malt, grain and very slight lager yeast. The taste is grainy malt, with a touch of sour, a tiny bit of grassy hops ending with a mildly bitter (barely vegetable) finish. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, highly carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. No glaring off flavors or flaws. Overall, ok, as a German Pilsner. It would be very good as an AAL, but I'm not sure there are any brewing adjuncts used in the production. Tastes like maybe all 2-row barley. This beer was actually bottled by Cervejas Premium Do Brazil St. John, NB Canada and imported by www.eurobrews.com.

This stuff is worse than your average macro brew. I only paid about two bucks for a bottle but it's still not worth that price, better off just getting coors.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, and light herbal. Mediocre aromas, some mild malt and earthy hops; but very poor strength. Flavors of cracker, corn, and light herbal hops. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish. Medicore flavors; very bland and lifeless; but decent malt/hop balance for what is present. Light-medium carbonation and very light body; with a smooth, crisp, dry, watery, and lightly grainy mouthfeel that is mediocre. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a pretty poor pale lager. Very bland in flavors; but it’s crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. No real flaws or off flavors; just very watery and flavorless.

Pours a slghtly milky-opaque yellow-orange. Very short-lived,3/8" white head,despite an aggressive pour.A tiny bit of lacing ringing the edge of the glass..

Aroma is almost not there. Has a very slight sour/boozy/yeasty aroma, reminiscent of the tail end of the aroma of a quad. This is a very recent arrival, so I assume it is fairly fresh, and it's not spoiled or old.

The taste is very slight , and mix of tangerine,pineapple, and rye bread, with a slight sour tang. Took half the bottle to get a enough taste to dissect it. Nothing overly offensive in the taste, just very little of it. That might be a good thing, and the "Taste" rating reflects that. :)

Carbonation is fine-textured, and pleasantly prickly. There is a strange after-feel on the mid to back tongue, and roof of the mouth. Sort of sticky, and chalky, almost as if a piece of damp,rough cardboard has been rubbed around, and then left stuck to the back of the tongue. A rougher communion wafer? : )

Overall, probably OK on a hot summer day, when there are no other options. Drink it quickly though, because it only gets worse as it warms.
I mentioned this to a friend living in Brasil {That's how THEY spell it. ;) }, as I drank it in honor of her birthday. She laughed uproariously. Apparently, it has .....a reputation?..... even in Brasil. ;)

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Decent looker. Clear and with a bit of fine carbonation, much of it racing quite quickly. Head creation is a bit soapy, not unlike your typical pils, a simple soapy three finger head manages to settle to a bubbled thin puck and collar. Pretty much alright in the looks department.

There's a weird aroma going on here. Flaked maize and corny smelling a bit for a German pils and comes off more like a basic American Pale Lager. Quite sweet, a bit of vegetation and quite macro smelling. Not too many off flavors detectable at least, but not really giving up the goods here either.

Woah.. Where did that body go. Surprisingly and exceptionally wet and almost rice bodied light in mouthfeel that does nothing to get a classic pils let alone a corn lager come through. Flakey palate, sweet corn flavored and lingering a bit. Quite surprised how little body there is to this beer, as it comes off like a diet beer.

Poundable ice cold beach beer, that's about it.

A- Pours pale yellow and crystal clear. Not a lot of head but surprisingly strong lacing- lines and dots abound.

S- mostly corn. A bit of biscuity. Not much aroma. It's not really bad just a lot of corn.

T- corn like the aroma. Some mild hints of grassy hops but not too much flavor.

M- super light easy drinking.

O- as expected mostly a light lager. Not quite as inoffensive as most but pretty bland.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly malt with some grass and hops in the background. The taste is very similar to an American adjunct lager. An average beer.
