2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A pretty bad bock if you ask me. Faint sweet malt taste and aroma, but pretty watery and bland.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, dark brown with a thick foamy beige head. A malty aroma with some coffee. Very dry palate, a little flavourless and a bit burnt.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 I brought this particular can of beer back with me a while ago. But it’s still clear and actually tastes better than I remember! Must be due to the alcohol. I was immediately impressed by the pronounced flavor upon my first sip. It’s a flavor that dissipates after a while though. Nice lace on the glass and a light lingering head. The color is that of a traditional brown ale. This beer is much better than I remember. I’d suggest for the patient to get a case and sock it away for a while, taking out a can or bottle once per month over a year or two. I bet it gets much better. Go Quilmes! I had orignially anticipated that the color was only from malt syrup added, but perhaps there is more going on here. Not bad, not bad....

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden amber/brown with a beige head. Sweet cereal aroma with notes of molasses and a hint of vanilla. Cloying. Cooked vegetables and notes of chocolate as it warms. Flavour is sweetish and malty with citrus hops in the background. Feels a bit watery. Bitter malty finish. Lingering notes of citrus hops and a bit of liquorice. Gets better as it warms and flavour is way better than the aroma, as there are no cereal notes here. 06.02.11.

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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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!

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.

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

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.
