A nice sweet malty aroma. Dirty orange-brown. This is tasty. A quite sweet flavor. This is smooth; doesn’t seem too high in alcohol. Now I need to find the other two.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2006 Pours a hazy red/copper color with a small white head that diminishes slowly and leaves a small but pretty lacing.
Aroma is very hoppy for a South American brew, with floral and fruity notes like roses, grapefruits, pine, herbs and a small tart cherry-like touch.
Strong sweet and fruity flavor with hints of berries, apples and nutty traces. Very amaretto like with initial sweetness and a bitter aftertaste of more nuts.
Thick oily texture, no carbonation bothering. Soft, delicious finish. Alcohol barely noticeable. It has a warming effect. This is masterfully crafted and the proof that Argentina can brew some really good stuff..
Many thanks to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-5855.htm> Lubiere for bringing this one from the other side of the Andes

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brought back from Buenos Aires last spring. Pours with a nice foamy head and a bit of lace that just can’t quite stick around. Malty aroma with some definite honey characteristics. Color is a brownish amber. Much more honey apparent in the flavor, maybe a bit overstated? Don’t really pick up on the alcohol. Great body! Good effort by the folks there. Bravo, folks! Salud!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Relatively few head, white. Amber color, a bit clowdy.
Frutal sweet aromas. Sweet taste, in agreement with the aroma.
Afteraste sweet too, smoother. Citric touches, Syrup texture.
The best of this beer is its excellent aroma, followed by its smell.
Their smell gets betters remarkably when temperature increases a bit. Very good taste and aftertaste. Definitively bad indicated temperature to drink it. 4º it’s not enough to appreciate the best of this syrup.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from the 19.9 oz bottle (which appears to have some floaties inside. yeast? I don’t see anything on the label indicating bottle-conditioning) a hazy, apple juice colored copper with a 1 1/2 finger head that disappears almost instantly. Makes quite a lot of fizzing noise on the pour, but once it settles there are a quite a few bubbles rising in the glass. Aroma is a nice mix of malt, caramel, and apples. 1st sip is a dry apple cider-ish note followed by some apple and caramel sweetness in the middle and on the swallow...with maybe a touch of honey thrown in. Mouthfeel is light, but not watery, with a slight sparkle on the tongue from the carbonation. Drinkability is quite high...I could easily see myself going through these one after another on a football Sunday. The alcohol is so well hidden, it appears to be almost non-existent. Overall, this is a very nice brew! I’ve never seen or heard of this before, but i’ll make sure to pick up more of this on future beer runs!

Pours a translucent amber/brown with a fine white head, aroma is definite caramel, treacle, edge hint to metholated spirits. Taste grainy, dark tough grains like spelt, good amount of sweetness, the finish comes on a little quickly, nice thick mouthful near perfect amount of alchohol going about
