2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden bronze. Almost no head. Sweet, musty, spicy, toffee aroma. Sweet toffee flavour and a bit too flat.

A bit weird, and not great for a barley wine but acceptable when ignoring the style. Bubblegum and bitterness but strangely mixed, or rather not mixed in a successful way. Strange beer but at least it has flavour.

from Mondial de la BiŤre 2013, Mulhouse - hazy reddish-brown beer with a modest foam left; aroma of tea, peaches and caramel; fairly sweet; full-bodied, quite lot of residual sugars, more notes of tea and apples in the finish

Copper-amber in color. Good head retention, tons of CO2, not good for this style. Floral aroma, not malty at all, a lot of sugar cane sweetness. It is the same with the flavor, you donít feel the alcohol because of the sweetness. It has a pungent dry aftertaste that stays forever. This is not a barleywine, it is just an ok imperial pale ale or something, with tons of sugar.

Bela breja dos hermanos argentinos da Antares. Cor vermelho cobre, com pouca formação de espuma e aroma com notas de cerejas maduras. Na boca, ótimo corpo, com baixa carbonatação e álcool presente, bem inserido. Amargor evidente, bem balanceado pelo malte. Final longo e aquecido. Bela breja!

Dark ambar with a thin head. Taste fruity at the beggining with a good bitterness. Then, you can feel the alcohol fluents and some sweetness in your mounth.

2008 Vintage sampled in 2009. Hoppy tropical fruit aroma. Spicey and figgy palate. Lighter for a BW. Interesting flavors, but not excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled randomly from some dude that brought a bottle to the JRHB meeting. Thanks, random dude! Light amber, very slight head. Hoppy aroma, lightly citric, with a bit of caramel. Flavor matches. On the light end of barleywines, and not very complex, but the flavors that were there were nice enough. I have memories of a very different Simpatico that was a random Mexican lager that came in a solid black bottle. It used to sit proudly next to Corona, Dos Equis, etc. back in the early 90ís. This fortunately is a step up from that one.

I actually really enjoyed this beer. maybe itís because argentine beer isnít too killer so itís relative, but itís strong and does the job.

Bottle labeled as Antares Barely Wine, not Simpatico. Pours an orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is quite malty, caramel, some fruit, notes of straw and hops. Taste is also malty with caramel and fruit leading to a moderate hoppy bitter finish. Slight burn on the way down. Not bad.
