Grim Reaper's Eulogy
If memory serves me, this is the first Brazilian beer reviewed. While it is a simple American Adjunct Lager style, it was found to be crisp, tight, clean and refreshing. Maybe it was due to a hot evening, but it slaked my thirst without a fight. To be sure, it was consumed quickly as these styles need to be chill to be thoroughly enjoyed.

The bottle and label are very austere. Aside from the rolling hills of the mountain range region of Rio de Janeiro, there are no loud proclamations of superior craftsmanship or hard to attain quality ingredients. The label merely states what it is and from whence it came. Simple. Just like the beer should be; without flourish. Not a lot going on except cold, liquid refreshment in a bottle.

Stone Cold Fact: Weltenburger Kloster , a fine German brew, is also under the same umbrella in the Cervejaria Petropolis product catalog. Look it up on their website under their "Products" section.

Is it more remarkable than your standard macro in a bottle or can? Nah, but it does make for an interesting conversational beer.
