|Cerveza Patagonia, Imported Blonde Ale (Argentina) |
Brewed under Bavarian purity laws from "100% pure malted barley, hops, yeast, and water," Patagonia's blonde beer pours a pale gold with a good, persistent white head. On the nose there's a touch of toffee and puffed candy, before quite clean, light, citrus and hop notes. In the mouth this is fairly rich and full, with a hint of sweetness and then the cool., lemony character and modest hops leave the finish quite refreshing. 4.5% ABV, 35.5cl, ?1.50, pampasplains.co.uk, Pierhead.
|Quilmes, Imported Beer (Argentina) |
There's a lightly malty, slightly honeyed note on the nose of this golden-coloured beer, followed by a nice sense of mellow nuttiness. On the palate it has a broad, expansive character with a fruity, dry flavour and rich texture. Not particularly distinctive, but enjoyable. 4.9% ABV, 33cl, 24 X ?22.99, Peckhams, Pierhead, Pierhead, Surf4beer.
