Another argentine industrial beverage that doesn´t reach the minimum profile to be declared as a beer.
They stay at the shelter of knowing that argentine people know about wine tasting but do not know anything regarding beer tastes.Moreover, beers are more available to poor people due to less prices than other alcoholic beverages.I really don´t understand how they get the permission to commercialize such nasty products.

970ml bottle

Appearance: light yellow that builds a 2-3 finger head that dissipates rather quickly.

Aroma: rice, adjunts, a little grassy and floral.

Taste: rice and bitterness, I guess there must be some hops in there.

Mouthfeel: a bit harsh despite being watery.

Overall: another ugly macro lager from my country. Not much else to say.

Light yellow color with a thick head with decent retention.
Sweet aroma of white bread and mild floral. Light sulfur after warming up.
Flavor of sweet malt and adjuncts, light herbal hops and mild oxidation. It doesn't really have an aftertaste and it has a mild bitterness.
Light to watery body with good carbonation.
Lower off-flavors than average Adjunct Lager, but less complexity and a bit bland.

The top of the can claims that it is made using a traditional German recipe. Sorry Schneider, not even close. Also, this can claims an alcohol % of 4.7

Schneider lager gives off a sparkle in the glass, but it's a dim one. Having barely reached a dull yellow in color, it also lets off carbonation in the form of bubbles popping on the surface. A soapy thinning head graces the top of this beer.

The effervescent carbonation produces a "beer-like" aroma. However, I am not fooled. It only wants you to think that it's beer.

Taste delivers what we've all been been expecting...low quality mass production, all the way. Adjuncts? No doubt about it. As the ingredients list on the side of the can notes, "cereals" have been added. Well, we all know how well corn grows in Argentina. The taste is less than hoped for, with soapiness leading, you also get a teasing of malt, and barely noticeable bitterness or aroma from the hops.

If this beer had a saving grace, it would be the wash over the palate. And my palate tells me that I think I'm drinking a beer.

Final notes. The list of ingredients also include: antioxidant 224, and stabilizer 405. I'm sure you can draw your own conclusion on that one. If I had a choice between this and lemonade....I'd hesitate....but still choose a Schneider. Hey, it's beer!

Thanks to my Japanese friend who brought me my first Argentinian beer!
