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.

2.48/5  rDev -6.8%

Poured from the 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Dark gold color. thin head that settles very quickly.

S: nondescript "beery" smell. Grain and a touch of alcohol. Very faint.

T: Crackery with a bit of veggie and grass. Slightly off metallic flavor for a bit, but maybe that's something else. Some spice in there from some sort of hop I'm assuming. OK but not fantastic.

O: Drinkable and ok with a burger but very forgettable.

Poured a thin head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is metallic, that's it. Stick your head in a metal drum for a reference.
The taste is really sweet without reason or balance.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
Not enjoyable.

I lived in Argentina for a year in 2011. Weren't many options available, usually stuck to wine, but would drink Quilmes often because it was everywhere and cheap. Time to revisit!

A: Pretty average for the style. Some decent head after poured, but fades fast.

S: Soggy cereal.

T: Carbonated, cheap apple juice. This is really bad.

M: Fine for the style. Could probably use more carbonation.

O: I'll remember this beer better than what this bottle offered. Having a "chop" with a big steak is unbeatable.

3.09/5  rDev +16.2%

Bottle: perfectly fine, standard 330mL bornw bottle with a macro brewery lager label. Fine.

Appearance: the aroma is quite clean if a bit light-on. Standard lager grains with a hint of citrus hops.

Aroma: some sweet grain and malts with again that touch of citric hops. A decent lager, to say the least. Very refreshing.

Taste: drops away pretty quickly, which is to be expected from a sessional lager.

Aftertaste: light in body with a smoother feel than many Aussie lagers. Easy drinkability.

Mouth feel: a pretty decent beer, but I'm not sure I can warrant the AU$55+ per case price.

Overall: a decent lager, but I'm a little perplexed by the price of AU$55 - 60 per case of 24 (2013) - seems a bit steep for what is advertised as Argentina's most prevalent beer (i.e. New, VB etc). Certainly not worth the price until someone realises that a standard cheap lager should be... cheap.
