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.

Bottle "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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
