Bottled alc. 5.0%
Hazy amber color, steady small off-white head. Aroma is odd: peat, grass, metal. Active carbonation. Flavor is similar to nose: hard iron flavors, peat, woody hoppyness. Like all Argentinian micros: not really an American amber ale.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Appearance: amber orange color, turbid. Great head, ivory color, dense and very persistent. Lively bubbles.
Aroma: yeasty and toasty malty. Some of toffee and honey. Fruity reminiscences like peaches and pears. Low hoppy smells. Intensive mineralized and metallic touches.
Flavor: too much yeasty, out style. However, existing toasty malty notes and other (underground) like toffee, candy and honey. Stone peach fruitiness. Bitter finish, for excessive yeasty.
Palate: light to medium body. Too much carbonized.
Bad beer, too much yeasty and excessive carbonated.
