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.

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 (14035) - 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.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours a clear straw gold. Good sized white head, but it falls very fast. Nose is typical, but no skunky attributes or metallic tones at all. Slight earthy tone going on. Flavor is very uneventful. Just typical macro lager style. Minimal flavor impact. Still though, it isnt total garbage. Feel has a good amount of carbonation on it. Typical liquid feel. Drinkable sure. It is what it is. I am sure it would be even better if I was stuck somewhere in Argentina and no Duvel was to be found anywhere. Decent enough to try, but no great shakes here. Way better than most macro crap, though.

BelgianBeerGal (3970) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Bottled. Darker golden colour with a white head that dissolves into nothing. Very light aroma of malt and not much else. Okay flavour, slight citrus with an orange finish. Not great.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Bottled 355ml. It pours a yellow beer with a nice ariy white head. Lively carbonation. The nose is very oily, biscuitty with hints of hay, chestnuts, peanuts, mushrooms and lime. The taste is rather malty and sweet. A slight biscuitty background. Low bitterness. Watery. Malty finish with a hint of coconut. Decent and strongly drinkable.
