COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The romantic term "barley wine" is used for the beers with an alcoholic content similar to the one of the wine. Of color bronze, the Antares Barley Wine is a hard licorosa beer and maltose, with an intense frutado accent, that remembers white grapes to us, originating of leavenings.

Not the best tasting beer. Murky yellow amber color. Very intense alcohol flavor.

Rodriguez (220) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 12, 2014
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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. Soft carbonation.

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

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.

Sevenlee (1204) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2012
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.

Sampled at the brewpub. A really crisp beer beer that has really warming malted base. The best brew they make.
