Hello Lager drinkers,
Following on with my Brazil theme, today I bring you a beer that is actually palatable (re: Brahma is awful). Check out their awesome website here: http://www.xingubeer.com/site/
I have great respect for this brewery as they’re trying to bring awareness to the masses and are allied with rainforest protection campaigns.
Beer: Xingu Black Beer
Brewery: FEMSA Cerveja Brasil, Brazil
Impressions: This was a very smooth dark lager. Heavy and sweet with dark roasted malt notes. A blend of creamy and bitterness throughout. Low carbonation.
Score: 7.5 / 10 (Very Good)
Verdict: I really enjoyed this beer. Very dense and packed with malt and sweetness, it really hit the spot. If only the ABV were a bit higher to give it a little kick, as it was just a tad on the mild side. Otherwise, definitely worth a try for stout and lager fans alike.
