asedzie (807) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear golden with generous, fluffy white head. Aroma is grassy, with doughy background. Flavor is mild breadiness a faint bit of sweetness, just a touch of adjunct grain heaviness, followed by mild herbal hoppiness, finish has extremely light bitterness. Thin bubbly palate.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle -- Pours with an OK frothy white head with a touch of retention and lacing. Clear yellowy gold with very few bubbles. Aroma is chemically grass and pretty unpleasant. Crisp flavour with some pilsener-like bitterness. Not a lot of aftertatse. Not absolutely revolting but certainly a below average macro lager.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2008
355ml bottle, Thanks to Immy. Pours clear golden in color with white head. Aroma of sweet malt and grain. Taste sweet, corn and watery with not much of a finish.

evilempire (149) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2008
despite what Id heard about it, decided to risk a try anyway, draught in BsAs. moral of the story - dont disbelieve everything you hear. bland yellow water with basically no flavour apart from a slight sweetness and a somewhat chemical aftertaste. AVOID!

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - FEB 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 This is light and hardly exceptional, but it is clean, refreshing, and still tasty with a decent bite. It is fairly pale gold with a big white head that lasts a long time and leaves pretty good lace in even rings. The aroma is light grain, honey, lemon with a hint of herb. Its light-smelling but very nice with some complexity. The taste is simlar - light but thoroughly pleasant with some complexity and more herbal hoppy bitterness than macro-lagers usually have. It has elements of grain, lemon, lemon-lime soda pop and a light but persistent herbal hoppy bitterness that just has the edge over the sweetness. Everything is clean and nicely balanced. This is a very good light lager.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pale, clear gold with a white head that disappears quickly. Lots of large carbonation bubbles. Nose is light, sweet malt and grain, a bit of grass. Starts out sweet, a bit corny, but that seems to fade into a lightly sweet cereal with a touch of floral. Finish is absent. Another fairly crappy light lager, but not the worst out there, for sure.

HughConway (830) - Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Bottles, various locations. Translucent yellow, slight head. Uninspired lager thats virtually indistinguishable from the other beers sold in similar packaging, but different labels, all over Argentina.

imdownthepub (13718) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 330ml from Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames. Bottled as Quilmes Cerveza rather than Cristal. Straw coloured, some carbonation, white head. How odd, I have drunk water with more flavours in it. A very weak malt base, almost like dipping a 3 times used tea bag into luke warm water. No hop notes, very little indeed. What you end up with is a slightly carbonated weak malt brew. gained a few points for no off flavours. Ah well, thats an Argentinian beer rated.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a medium gold color with a quick vanishing fizzy head. Aroma seems to be almost non existant, maybe a hint of citrus. Not much going on in the flavor, either. Nothing skunky or weird, but nothing great either.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Found this one bottled at Binnys in St. Charles, Illinois. Medium yellow pour with a bubbly white head. Bready nose with hints of grass. Malty and a bit sweet. Bubbly. Oddly quaffable.
