Pours a clear golden color with a bright white finger of fluffy head that doesn't really leave any lacing at all. Aroma is grainy, mildly purfumy, with a fusel, nose tingling alcohol aroma. Initially, at its coldest, it tastes of pale grains, mild earthiness, slight fruity sweetness, but as soon as it starts to warn, it gets bogged down with alcohol and corny, sweet grains. Feels medium to full bodied with a lower carbonation level, somewhat sticky.

Not sure if I really get the point of this beer...too much booze, not really good in any flavor or aroma profile. Can was cool though, which admittedly is the whole reason I even bought it...in Brazil and lugged it back to the states wit me. Lol

500 ml can poured into a Big Tulip glass (Gulden Draak glass)
App/ light yellow with a white head (2 fingers) that disappears quickly
Smell/ alcohol, sugar and medicine !
T/ sweet malt and immediately alcohol appears, not disgusting but not well balanced
M/ medium body with medium carbonation
O/ without the balance between sweet malt and alcohol and with no bitterness at all it is not a beer to revisit. As I have said before it is not disgusting but this attempt from J Martins maybe don't deserve your attention
