Brahma beer

Brahma beer (4.8% ABV)

Brahma is another of those so-called exotic beers that you see everywhere. I've never been to Brazil, so I don't know whether Brazilians drink it themselves, or whether this is just clever marketing. Sell Brazil, sell more beer.

Either way, it pours a very deep amber, almost bikini arse tan bronze. Smells faintly sweet and there's a mild tang of hops. Or maybe hips.

The taste is sunshiney, clean, a little sweet, with a mild, unchallenging aftertaste and benign bitterness in the finish.

Serve cold. This is no Corona or Budweiser beer; no need to ice your drink to chug the stuff down. But cold, for sure. It needs you to chill.

Brahma is the perfect beach beer. There's little to challenge you, but you won't feel the need to drown it with lime just to make it palatable. Serve with optional view of topless beach volleyball and neon thongs.

Not in Canada, eh? NEW
by: Anonymous

Used to love this beer in the summer. Not available for several years now. Would happily buy it if I could. Another Brahma Drinker I know searched everywhere and came up dry. Oh well the local microbreweries get my business instead.

No Brahma U.S. NEW
by: Larry S.

I just talked to a liquor store owner here in Long Beach CA and he said you can't find Brahma anymore here in U.S. Aparently there was some dispute between U.S. and brewery. Am sad because it was my favorite beer when I lived in Brazil.

love it but can't get it NEW
by: Damien

I drank it in Argentina and loved it, I would say the most enjoyable best tasting beer I have ever drunk.
I have been trying to find it here in Melbourne , Australia, with no luck. My mother in law just brought me back 2 cans from Argentina, and I was in heaven. I drank one and am saving the other for the right time.
Won't be long.

To Enjoy Just 1 More Brahma or 2 or 3 or4 or5
by: Anonymous

Love the beer and I also wish someone import it to the Southern USA. The yellow "sleeve thingy's" that they gave us in a bar in Santos, Brasil were great to help keep it cool.

Someone needs to import Brahma from Brazil. Many consumers including my self would gladly purchase it. It used to be available 4 or 5 years ago here in the US. PLEASE SOMEONE BRING BRAHMA BACK TO THE USA!!!!!

Love Brahma
by: Graham

I had some Brahma in Brazil while visiting in the 1990's. I loved it!! I did not get to have any more for 15 years till a friend went to Brazil and and carried two six packs back for me! Better than Skol, and all the others. It was so great to drink it again after 15 years, and I was not let down at all; it lived up to my memories. Not the most sophisticated beer, but there is just something about it!

My husband is from Brasil, and Brahma is his favorite. I'm not a beer drinker, but even I will drink this beer, happily! Unfortunately, its nearly impossible to find in the midwest where we live.

Brahma is also famous in Brazil
by: Anonymous

Yes, we drink Brahma here in Brazil. It´s one of the best selling beers in our country. Actually it´s in second place, just after Skol. We tend to drink it in 650 ml bottles in bars. While Skol is more consumed in parties, Brahma Pilsner is a favourite in bars and restaurants. Other brazilian beers: Antarctica, Bohemia, Nova Schin, Itaipava, Cintra etc.

From Rio de Janeiro,
