My friend's mother is a flight attendant and knows I am a fan of trying new brews so for Christmas, she bought me two bottles of Brahma Extra. I also got the Samuel Adams Boston Lager glasses from Santa, so I cracked open the first one and tried it out...
VISUAL: light gold, clear, pale, little to no head, minimal to no lacing
AROMA: sweet yet sharp and grainy
BODY: thin mouthfeel, does little to excite the palette
FLAVOR/ABC: minimal flavor, very grainy and sweet at front of mouth, little hops balance led to a grainy, almost cereal taste, complexity was strong grain tastes (as aforementioned) and smooth finish.
conclusion, its a smoother budweiser without the skunky budweiser taste that i always know it for. 2.5/5 stars.
still cool to get a beer from Sao Paulo; keeping the bottle, lots of gold in an olive colored bottle.
anyone ever tried it?
