Pours straw yellow with a thin wisp of a head. Minimal lacing sticks.

The smell is very mild. Some grain.

The taste is rather bland. A hint of grain. I suppose there are some hops because it's not too sweet, but there is no real hop flavor or much dryness in the finish.

Reminds me more of an American adjunct lager than a true pils. I was able to drink it easily enough, but wouldn't get it again. Plenty of "lawnmower" beers available at a less expensive price, if that's really what you are looking for.

L: Brilliant straw gold under a 1” white foam collar that recedes to about 1/3 it original size and then perisits.
S: Light grains, no fruit, faint spicy hops.
T: Creamy up front with light malt and a dose of hops and the the carbonation shows up with an acid bite eliminating most of the flavor. The malt and hops return as lingering aftertastes.
F: Clean and crisp. Light body and above average carbonation. The carbonation is a little harsh like artificially carbonated bottled water.
O: Light on quality and flavor, big on carbonation.

This beer is a rather standard South American beer. It says pilsner but takes closer to an American domestic.

Brazilian version of Budweiser. Light on flavor, smell and body. Drinkable. Barely.

For some reason my bottle of Palma Louca had a load of gunk floating around it, which had to sieved out before drinking. Not recommended with or without gunk.

Light, not complex, lacks true identity in terms of malt or hops

Not a good beer. Passable at best.

Format: a solid 355mL brown bottle with a pretty funky macro label.

Appearance: pours a fairly light yellow colour with a fairly flat white head. Not much lacing.

Aroma: not really much there - just a touch of adjunct corn and sweet cereal grains.

Taste: better than the aroma - more of the grain and a touch of hops rather than the corn here. Not brilliant, but better than expected.

Aftertaste: a touch of sweet grains and a touch of hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: light in body with an okay carbonation.

Overall: not the world's most brilliant lager, but at AU$39 a case I guess it doesn't have to be. Good if you need an average lager on the cheap. I'd still rather Tooheys New or VB for a few bucks more.
