Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, sweet. Taste is malts, grains, light sweetness, clean and highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good beer, I can imagine it tasting great in the tropics.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving: 500 mL bottle poured into a Libbey Gibraltar glass.

Appearance: Hazy, pale, straw-yellow with an average head of sudsy, bright white foam; minimal lace.

Smell: Very mild biscuit malt, refreshing lemon rind, grass.

Taste: Gently sweet maltiness, white bread. Citrus oil, grass, subtle fruit and just enough bitterness for a clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Easy to drink in the hot sun. Not a standout, but otherwise pleasant and balanced.

My recent visit to Chicagoland saw me in Niles, IL and not far from their local Binny's. I went over for a look-see and spied this on the shelf. Let others chase after whales/wales/Wales! I get excited by new and different (to me) beers. Sure, I drink my share of clinkers, but I am happy to do so.

From the bottle: "Brewed with selected fine malts, Nelson Sauvin and Cascade hops."; "Precious and Rare"; "Xingu helps preserve the Amazon Rainforest."

I Pop!ped the cap and began a heavy-handed pour since I could think of no reason against doing so. This created a finger of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head with limited retention. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = 2 -4), but that 4 is generous, but with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a grapiness from the Nelson Sauvin hops that seemed interesting. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was different, probably from the admixture of the hops in question. It was both grape-y and grassy and struck me as a nice change of pace. I am unsure that it was really a "Czech Pilsener" as identified on this site, but if it was truly a lager and a Pilsener at that, it was definitely NOT of the German style. The hops were thankfully not being squandered in some weird experiment, which was actually my first thought upon reading the label. It was a very clean beer with a tangy twang to it on the tongue. It was not as though the hops were fighting for supremacy, either. Amazingly, they seemed to complement one another with the Nelson Sauvin taking the lead and the Cascade hops asserting themselves later. Of course, all of this meant a very dry finish, almost like white wine. My two knocks against it were a) 500 ml seemed a bit much and b) it was bottled, where a CAN would do just as well, if not better.

Xingu Gold has a thick, stark-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and a good amount of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of sweet barley malt and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is of sweet, white bread, clean malt, grassy hop oils, and mellow, mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Xingu Gold finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and delicious.

Golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of lager yeast, mild cereals and some herbal hops. Better than usual Adjunct Lager.
Sweet flavor with notes of caramels, light herbal and floral hops and bread with butter. Dry aftertaste with a perceivable bitterness.
Light body with live carbonation.
I found this a bit too sweet and plain but it didn’t have any tiresome off-flavors. This is sure better than their Unique Red and the traditional version, but also sure it is not worth it the price.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of metallic, grain, pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of pine. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsner. Tastes of grain, pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, and body.

500ml Bottle from Viva Brazil restaurant, Glasgow:
This one was a really bland and quite boring beer that reminded me of a cheap lager you always seem to pick up on holiday that is only good for drinking in the sun. There was nothing exciting about this one although it thankfully wasn't off-putting or disgusting to drink, it just wasn't all that enjoyable either.

500 ml bottle into lager glass; C083 BT1 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, white grape, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, white grape, orange zest, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Slight floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, white grape, lemon zest, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light yeast ester flavors; with a very clean flavor profile and no cloying after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this a nice and pleasant Czech pilsener style. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops, pale malt, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
