1/5  rDev -62.4%

A pale yellow color, a slight white head forms and disappears quickly; really, really, really quickly. No real aroma, slight scents of hoppiness but, very faint. The taste is nada, zilch, a goose egg, totally non-existant taste. The feel is thinner than water, enough said. This beer is NOT a very drinkable beer, period.

I think this beverage doesn´t reach the minimum profile to be declared as a beer.It could be defined as something similar to a beer but almost undrinkable.
I really don´t know how industries handle ingredients to get such a horrible thing to drink.
The only way to drink it is pressing your nose while drinking and it must be almost frozen so you can not get its real flavor.

1.25/5  rDev -53%

Pours as clear straw-yellow color with a HUGE foamy white head. Almost appears like a hefeweizen, but it's not one. I'm confused.

Smells a bit sour and has a grain alcohol aroma and nothing else. At least it isn't totally off-putting.

I'm rather surprised that this tastes wheaty - I would have thought there was no wheat in this beer and there are no other flavors in this brew besides alcohol. Very weak flavor. Just has that wheat flavor that I can't make any sense out of.

Mouthfeel is clear and smooth, just like water. That isn't a good thing with this brew. There's just a sour aftertaste. That's all you get, a sour aftertaste and no flavor. At least it isn't something like a cement mixer shot.

Drinkability is utterly worthless. I had absolutely no desire whatsoever to finish this beer. No reason to drink this. I'm not sure if I can think of another beer I'd drink less than this - I would even drink Michelob Ultra before this, or just plain water.

1.33/5  rDev -50%

Boldly proclaims that it is "Argentina's favorite beer." I feel sorry for those gauchos.

Pours a shockingly pale yellow. In low light, for a moment I thought there was a screw-up and this was carbonated water. No such luck. It's simply the palest beer I've ever seen. No smell, but there is a gigantic white foam head. Tastes like rotten vegetables and sweet corn meal. Maybe some alpaca urine? Hard to tell.

Watery and awful. Drain pour.

1.4/5  rDev -47.4%

A: Pale yellow with a large head that dissipates very quickly.

S: Some generic malts, but relatively undetectable.

T: Starts down decently fine with adjunct malts, but this devolves into an astringency reminiscent of turpentine. Disgusting.

M: Thin body with medium carbonation.

D: The aftertaste of this beer is just horrible. I struggled trying to finish just one bottle.

Sorry for the belived most handsome people´s inthe word they have the worst beer sell in mexico, its remarked grains flavor made worst, its patagonian hops not help its flavor, but in general is good only one or two no more, they give a several head pain and cruda

1.53/5  rDev -42.5%

My bottle claimed only 4.9% ABV. Not 6.5%. And it was every bit of about 2%.
It featured a standard, factory-grade, anemic, gray-colored fizz on top. It went away quickly. The aromas told of accelerated fermentation : grain; sugar; and alcohol. Bland and dry, it served up impressions of rice pancake and mineral water. Very Bud Light-like in it's candied, thin flavor profile. Stale, freeze-dried pea flavors lurked on the finish. This was the most tasteless imported beer I've ever consumed -- utterly meaningless.

1.6/5  rDev -39.8%

My bottle claims 4.9 ABV, not 6.5

Clear light yellow. Not much head, vanishing.
Smell: malt, corn, grainy.And some, very little, hop in the back.
Taste: where?
Well, grainy, useless indudtrial macro lager. Quite carbonation.
Body and aftertaste: nothing to talk about.
Absolutely tasteless, anonimous, and completely useless.

1.6/5  rDev -39.8%

Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a few stray bubbles, but that's about it.

Smell: Sad, vapid nose with just a light touch of pale malt and floral hops.

Taste: Light pale malts with only the faintest sweetness. Meager floral hint with an almost non-existent bitterness. The rest is water, folks.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Shamefully watery. Great for rinsing out your glass for the next beer - hopefully one with some actual flavor and character.

1.65/5  rDev -38%

A: golden showers, looks like every macro lager ever made--watery, no head or lacing, nothing to distinguish it.

S: none, the absence of. Same as above.

T: honey, a little bit sour, mostly water.

M: crisp and lagery, at least it feels like beer.

D: intensely boring. I don't think I could pick this out of a lineup of national beers of South American countries, or the national beers of North America for that matter.

1.68/5  rDev -36.8%

Pours yellow with a small head that quickly fades to nothing.
Nose shows hay, sweet straw, faint funky notes and sweet corn.
Similar flavours: hay, cardboard, cooked vegetables. Pretty bad stuff, very cloying, no bitterness.
Could use lots more carbonation.

1.68/5  rDev -36.8%

Appearance: very clear with a light gold color. The head is white, very low and it fades very quickly.
Aroma: unappealing corn smell.
Taste: adjuncty and chaffy. No hops.
Mouthfeel: dry, strong carbonation, low alcoholic strength and light body.
Finish: short and very slightly bitter.

Overall: made for the masses. Too watery and boring to justify a second try.

1.7/5  rDev -36.1%

A - Very light yellow amber colour, crystal clear, thin white head leaving the faintest lace rings.

S - Sweet corn, hay, metal.

T - The faintest corn flavour overpowered by water.

M - Thin and watery, light to moderate carbonation. Terrible.

O - Boring, basic, watery adjunct lager. Lacking in everything.

1.73/5  rDev -35%

Poured into a pint glass. Same old pale lager straw color with a fizzy white head. No lacing. Aroma is corn syrupy sweet with little grain. Corn syrup flavored mineral water with a touch of alcohol? Blech. This is almost cheap malt liquor bad. No coincidence that the name is almost 'Kill me.'

1.73/5  rDev -35%

Appearance: Poured a nice clear yellow. No blood, could pass for urine.

Smell: Sweet alcohol, had to swirl to get the aroma to hit my nose, Like my grandmother on a saturday evening.

Taste: Reminds me of yellow water I had in mexico city. No suprise that this beer came from south of the Rio Grande.

Mouthfeel: Slight carbonation, poor after taste, like waking up with morning breath.

Drinkability: Bad. I'd sell this to minors to teach them that underage drinking is wrong.

1.75/5  rDev -34.2%

Pours with a three finger head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Chrystal clear light amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts slightly hoppy with a corn husk flavor, aftertaste has a slight bitterness. Another one just for the country. 12 oz bottle part of mixed 6-pak for $7.99 from Friar Tuck's Peoria, Il.
