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.

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.

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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: brown color. Medium head, beige color and few persistency.
Aroma: candy, roast sugar and some metallic.
Flavor: too much sweet; roast sugar, caramel and toasty touches. Some artificial-fruitiness like blackberries in syrup.
Palate: light to medium body. Medium carbonation.
Unbalanced and very discrete. Definitively not a bock beer.

Little of everything. It is not for what one expects from a dark beer. Something of Malty, in a very slight body. Nothing more.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
CAN Chestnut colored beer with a frothy tiny off-white head. Awful aroma of grains, cooked vegetables, metal odor from the can and a totally unpleasant alcoholic hint. Very soft flavor. Light bodied, watery texture a bit of bitterness in the finish. Horrible.

Boa Bock argentina, cor marrom-avermelhada, pouca formação de espuma, aroma de malte torrado, toffee. Na boca, notas da torrefação do malte, caramelo, baixo amargor. Final médio. Boa breja!

Unlike the lager, this beer is definitely very drinkable. Nice body, caramel, and even though not like most of the bock beers I drink in Europe, it is very refreshing.
