1.94/5  rDev -26.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 1.75

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear straw color. The head is actually fairly respectable, at two fingers high with a white color. Retention, on the other hand, is poor. There are small amounts of lacing left behind.

S: There's something unpleasantly vegetal about the nose. Otherwise, it ticks the typical macro lager boxes well enough: some cereal grain, a touch of diacetyl, and even a malty hint. I just can't shake the cooked vegetables at all.

T: It tastes like...well, an AAL really. There's a little corn sweetness to open it up, while the finish is actually somewhat bitter (all relative, of course...) I'd enjoy the bitterness a lot more if it weren't so damn vegetal tasting. All in all, the stereotypical crappy macro lager.

M: Remember that bitterness I talked about earlier? It narrowly prevents this from being a sickly sweet mess - instead it's only kind of sickly sweet. It's still drinkable, though: this would be solid in hot weather...but uh oh, Argentina isn't known for its blistering heat. Hey, at least it's not overcarbonated!

O: Welp, I just ticked Argentina. Granted, the tick was just another lame macro lager, but who cares?! I ticked a country I never thought I would be able to relatively soon. I'd never want to drink this again, though - even among similar AAL's it blows chunks.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

A: Crystal clear with thin white head. No lacing and zero head retention.
S: Not much nose. Cereal & light fruit aromas that are quite faint.
T: Bready sweet fruity flavors. Very watery and lacking much taste.
M: Light bodied, watery and refreshing.
O: Watery and cold, at best.

I find Quilmes a great beer, even though it is mass produced and distributed. It pours light golden, with little fizzle bubbles, and medium/average head. it has a hoppy taste, with hints of tropical fruits, citric, and rice,. It drinks smooth, with a mild edge, and mild aftertaste. It leaves the plate refreshed and wanting more. It is widely sold in the United States.

2.88/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.

A classic yellow fizzy beer in looks, aroma and taste.
Head has very good retention and lacing.
Mild with high carbonation and bit of corn. Smooth but thin body.
Flavor: could ready pass for an Amer. Adjunct beer, but perhaps even light for that style.
Clean and worked fine with a meal, but no legs to stand on its own.

2.21/5  rDev -16.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Pours clean, golden. Topped with a finger of white head that settles down quickly.
The aroma is very faint, although you can point out some minimal amount of hops and grains.
There are sweet grains in the taste, slightly watery body, finish has just a touch of bitterness.
Refreshing, drinkable, nothing out of the ordinary, really.
