2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Toffee colored pour with a head that sprays carbonation. Nose of cinnamon and powdered sugar on toast. Vague, strange sweetness. Tastes of sour fruit, white grapes, palpable sugars. Palate is void and very loose. Kind of intriguing for its weirdness but not in a favorable way.

Bottle: Quite flat and boring for a ´bock´ beer, very close to it’s brother brew. Watery, plain, boring. Heineken do something here, you’re dying!

large rocky light brown head. fully diminishing. excellent lacing. clear thin light brown body. aroma: moderate malt, nutty, caramel, mild coffee. if and ff: moderate sweet and light bitter; average duration. palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. apesar da rala e lembrando pale lager, a mesma tem seus méritos, com saboroso dulçor de café e caramelo

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought a liter of this beer while living in Buenos Aires, and poured it into a wine glass to drink. The beer had a malty aroma with a strong caramel presence, along with some fruit, molasses, and a bit of grainy scents. It had a dark brown color, with a slight ruby hue, and a good-sized creamy off-white head that had pretty good retention and a lot of cling. The taste was somewhat sweet and malty, but also had a bitter grain effect. Its body was creamy and smooth, mostly wet, and had a decent amount of fizz and carbonation. Overall the beer had a lot of good characteristics, but the taste was its weakest component.

This is a nasty beer, you can taste the tettnanger hops, but it is way to bitter, there is none of the malty fullness that you would expect from a decent dark lager.

"Bock" it says. It pours a brownish color, beige head that quickly vanishes . Aroma is sweet and so are flavor and aftertaste, the last one being slightly roasted. It doesn´t lives up to being a bock, but i prefer it to any pale lager.

Better than average only because it’s not an industrial lager. Dark beers are mostly a rarity in Argentina save a few micros of spotty distribution. Standard recyclable pounder, decent color, decent taste.

Poured dark but clear. Some burnt hops, but watery. Not bad for Latin America.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber and light berown colour with a timid brown head foam. Malty nose with presence of some caramel and dough. Malty taste but refreshing, light sweetness, very light bitterness. It gets a bit flat flavour at the end. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation and a sweet and very light after taste. Ok to try.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can 354 ml: Pours an opaque red/brown color with a small, fully diminishing beige head that leaves a small lacing.
Weird aroma. What the hell is this?! The only malty smell I found was a little of caramel (probably artificially added). There are notes of metal from the can and some herbs and grapefruit from the hops. I found also some hints of sour milk. How could this be a Bock?.
Flavor is soft, sweet but with a hoppy trace always present. It gives this beer a very un-bock taste. There’s a bit of orange, bitter chocolate and Coca Cola. Where is the malty character?. Dissapointing would be an overstatement.
Light body and watery texture, this is definitely a dark lager. A bad one. Alcohol is well-hidden at least. Finish is short and nothing special. Lagerish aftertaste. Bad. Another one brought by my mother from Mendoza, Argentina.
