this should be 2 ratings - 1 for the tap version and 1 for the bottled. Barbarian is not a great bottler. here I will only address the draft at Cañas y Tapas in Miraflores. For the bottled - widely available - subtract 15% across the board. Pours a rich red with a nice clean malty / nutty aroma. Solid head with a pleasant haziness. Nice malt / bitter balance, clean and light flavor, an solid, drinkable red in a country with almost nothing to compete with it.

Sweet sharp raisins aroma. Some berries. Rather bitter, with a slight medical quality. Not the biggest flavor, but more flavor than a mainstream pale lager.

On tap: Poured a brownish red with a fair, typical head. Sweet malt aroma with some hop character, but a bit too sweet of finish. An above average Latin American beer, I’d order another.
