Bottle. Looks like bourbon on ice after the ice has melted. Crap, Crap, Crap. So this is what liquid cardboard tastes like. This is pure shit.

bottle, looks like urine if you haven’t had much to drink. very dark, very thick. no head to this. aroma is non descript, and i wondered what it was hiding, and then i realized hat itwas hiding, the taste, damn this is bad. bitter and sour. i don’t know if this has corn adjuncts, but it tastes like it. this beer is not good. if this is the favorite beer of argentina, then i feel bad for them.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nearly fluorescent yellow with puffy white head. Grainy, sweetish aroma exuding some pear and light pineapple. Flavor presents some clover flower along with straw and roasted sunflower seeds. Falls apart on the palate, though.

Run of the mill South American pale lager. This is a new import, so at least it was fresh. Some faint malt, some corn, some off-tastes of paper and soap.

You always walk a fine line when buying a beer just because it is from a new country. I knew this wouldn’t be good, but darn it I wanted to try an Argentinian beer! I am sure I am not the only one. Pours a clear pale gold color with a thin white head that lasted pretty long. Thin lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped. Thin-bodied and adjunct-ridden with a weak hops and malt flavor struggling to be noticed. The finish is clean but nearly flavorless. I have definitely had worse but this beer really serves no purpose other than being from Argentina.

Bottle. Avoid at all costs, corny adjuncty swill, nasty and thin. Just like corona or something.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Sampled at the Southside Beer Expo. Well, I may be sampling this just so I can paste "Argentina" into my "countries" stamp album. But this does have a little more character than the standard pale ale. Served a little warm, it demonstrates a bit more hoppiness and a few good malt notes than the standard megabrew. Just not too much more. Insert your joke about Argentinians and Germans here.

Light color, little aroma, and not much to talk about when it comes to taste. better than a Bud or Miller but still very weak.

Pours light yellow, very clear, decent head. Pretty much your standard tasteless lager, but without the skunkiness or metallic flavor.

bottled, pale, not very interesting, however did the job of thirst quenching. have a few bottles of this at the pub after the festival. will probably sell them off to make space in the cellar
