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.

"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.

on of the easiest to find good beers in Argentina, slightly chocolatey slightly malty and a bit of milk in the finish. Very solid for as available and cheap as it is

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.

Bottle. Pours translucent ruby brown with small head. Nose is marginally interesting with some caramel notes and a bit of landfill, flavor is slightly sweet with a tang of poorly made candybar, finish is slightly chalky and has some cocoa-ish flavor. This tasted better at the asado after 3 bottles of wine had already been finished - maybe that’s its purpose?

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.

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.

The beer has a beautiful dark color. The color is a perfect ruby red and the beer has a lovely red glow. The beer is crystal clear. The beer pours a decent amount of slightly tinted foam. The bulk of the foam collapses very fast, but a tiny drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is very nice. The smell is a little bit creamy. I also smell some roasted barley, some licorice and some cherries. The later isn’t that strong though. I smell a little bit of alcohol. The taste has a little bit more of the roster barley. The beer has a nice bitter taste, but it is balanced nicely by a sweet fruitiness. You can taste the alcohol better than you could smell it. The beer has a lot of roast aromas and flavors for a bock beer and fewer sweet caramel and syrup aromas and flavors, however, this isn’t disturbing at al. It is a nice variation.
