A: Crystal clear, straw colored, 1 finger white head with immense lacing.

S: 2 row, slight caramel, corn and pilsner style hop bitterness. Slight skunk.

T: Corn, slight malt sweetness. Pretty close to water but quick to sip.

M: Thin but carbed.

O: Not horrible. It's simple an american adjunct lager. Better than most of the domestic premium categories.

Just really uninspiring shit. The sole resemption lies in that if youre swilling this its probably 3 in the morning, youre probably outdoors, and youre likely surrounded by the worlds most breathtakingly gorgeous humans. Vive Argentina!

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a light golden amber with an effervescent with head that dissipates to nothing except a thin ring around the glass. Light aroma of grainy biscuit malt and mild grassy hops. Flavor starts with grainy malt with a hint of biscuit, then fades away, revealing slightly astringent grassy hops with light graininess. Light bodied with active carbonation. The very first part of the taste gives hope, because it has a bit of grainy biscuit, but the flavor fades quickly leaving only the dry part of the malt and lightly grassy hops that are more bitter than flavorful. A mediocre adjunct lager that leaves only hope for a better introduction to Argentinian ales.

Nothing special here. Pedestrian pale lager from Argentina. Light malt taste, but flat and watery tasting. Typical cereal lager, heavy on the adjunct grains.

Poured from a bottle into a sleeve - a one-inch fluffy, foamy white head with a pale, pale yellow color to the body, and not much in terms of bubbles. The head dissipates into patches of foam and tendrils of lacing.

Not much for smell here - adjuncts, weak malt.

Taste is mild, sterile. Not much body, just watery malt, very little in terms of hops.

I got this as part of a beer sampler pack, and this was the Argentinian choice. I guess as a lawn-mower beer, it could work. But my advice? Drink this one cold, and fast.

One thing I noticed about this beer is the awesome shade of blue on the label. Not quite aquamarine or turquoise but not a royal blue either. Also, the "Q" in the label looks like a fish. Oh yeah, the beer. Basic straw color. Wispy, blah head. Lots of visible carbonation. Grainy, grassy nose with a mild touch of biteless hops.

Plenty of graininess in the flavor, but it's agreeable enough. Inoffensive and bland. Mostly lacking character, but the aftertaste is reasonably clean and overall this is at least average for a South American lager from a country more famous for red wine. I wonder how it would go with a steak.

Well, another good lager beer for hot days. IT is not that great, but is good for refreshing. Very crystal and light Yellow. Although I got i a little frozen. IS the most comercial beer in Argentina, and there is even a Football team with that name, and a lot fo teams has the QUILMES name in the T-Shirts.

Quilmes is almost an average lager.

Pours a very light golden color; Little head and little lace; Smells some corn; Flavor is of grain and wheat; Mouthfeel is watery and thin; A lots of carbonation; Drinkability is good.

I think almost all american macros are good for those hot days.

Salud !

Pours a very light pale color with a small almost non existent head. Smells of corn and not much malt. First sip is tad bitter with an ok hop presence but not much flavor. Very light bodied with average carbonation. Very typical for beers from South America. Not enough flavor to be called a "beer".

Not much of any smell excepting a slight super sweet malty (rice?) smell. Pours to a pale yellow with a big bubble head that recedes fast but stays on the surface. Taste is sweet with hopping only in the far background at the start then coming towards the front in the end. Mouthfeel is very good, smooth with no overpowering carbonation. Overall, too sweet for me! If this is Argentina's favorite beer, as stated on the bottle, I think they know alot about wine, but are painfully ignorant when it comes to beer.

golden straw in colour. fine carbonation, no head retention.

Smell is of adjuncts and pale malt simple malts, a sweet smell with a hint of flowery hop aroma.

Taste is classic adjunct larger, sweet unfermented malts, corn and a very slight DMS tone but nothig to offensive.

Mouthfeel is thin and light, little bit low carbonation.

easy to drink adjunct larger a very standard example of the style.

A: An attractive light golden hue governs this beer with swarms of bubbles moving around the pilsner glass. Snowy white head started off very fizzy but simmered down to a nice little cushion of foam which is fading quick.

S: Rice, soap and malted barley. A lot of a Japanese beer actually.

T: Up front floral flavors with corn pop like sweetness. A lot of adjunct tastes going on in here, almost artificial. Finishes mineraly with aluminum moments.

M: Thin but not too bad viscosity wise. Generally beers of this style are rough on the palate.

D: Not too much too my liking, but did have some positive characteristics. Taste wasn't up my alley. Nothing really negative to say about this beer besides its not really anything for me.
