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 (14557) - 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.

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 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Found this one bottled at Binny’s 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 isn’t 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.

Vanishing foam head,straw to light gold colour,med carb aroma is rubber like,biscuit,flavour what the hell was that ,rotten vegetables really bad beer. BelgianBeerGal (4068) - 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 (2854) - 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. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 20, 2008
350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Clear pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Very faint malty aroma. Crisp slightly citrus taste with a bready finish. JFGrind (2047) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Maize aroma, and flavor, this pale lager’ left a ring around the pint glass. Could be a half decent beach beer if you were at the right locale. I found it interesting the importer to the USA was in King of Prussia, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia.
