look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

big ass 970ml bottle poured into my tiny hotel glass 23/8/11 metal cola like twist off, I may use it as a water bottle just for kicks

A clear straw yellow with just a fast falling thin film of head that leaves no lace

S sweet skunky candied corn and thankfully not much else

T some wet hay on top of what I smell, a little grassy.... I want too say hops but I doubt that's it

M feels on par for the style, watery and well carbonated, perhaps too much carbonation if anything

O yet another shitty beer on my South America trip, nothing worth trying here

pretty sweet bottle but that`s about it, like I said before would make a good water bottle but that's about it

Bottle at El Palenque, Mendoza, Argentina

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down and left small patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bready malts are present in the nose. Some hints of adjuncts become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of bready malts along with notes of adjuncts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be like a hybrid between a pilsener and an adjunct lager, although it tastes more like an adjunct lager as it warms up.

First had this about five years ago or so. Seems like it was a bit better then; like it's a tad sweeter now. Still, it's better than regular Quilmes. Pours with a big white head, a bit of lace. Pale yellow color. Aroma is beery and sweet, almost no hop. Definitely sweet flavor now predominates. Corn. Forced carbonation. Corn sweetened finish with some beer.
