2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big bottle (there are so many big bottles in Argentina!). Dark amber colour. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, some hoppiness. Bit sweet flavour of caramel and toasted malts, some alcohol, with a sweet bit bitter finish. An ok brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Dark brown, minimal beige head. Dominated by crystalized sugar. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. No finer nuances, but there are notes of coffee and caramel. Very low bitterness. Tolerable.

Draft in Arg. A bit sweet. Not really a bock. Just a dark latin american beer. I switched back to regular Quilmes right after, if that’s any indication.

It’s not a bad beer. It does not have a great taste and it has a bitter aftertaste. Okay, maybe it is a little bad

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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 330ml from Westholme Stores, Goring. Brown with short cream head. Pretty sweet beer, quite syrupy and fruity, presumably plenty of spare sugars to get the alcohol. Thin and carbonated with some adjuncty notes. Not good.

Seems like a malted, colored very low-quality pilsner. Not a big fan, love the country but not this beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear dark brown with medium beige head. Low and empty aroma, flavor too sweet for a bock. Light body and watery. It´s like a pale lager in taste but coloured.

Quilmes Bock is lightweight in every respect. The style’s hallmark caramel, bready flavours are there but only just. Rather than being proudly paraded around the palate, like a pedigree at a Best in Show competition, the flavours make an all too brief appearance before ingloriously exiting down the throat. The bitterness never reaches any great heights so the balance of the beer is lost, leaving you feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.
