Imperial Scotch Ale and Edmundo Rivero
24 pesos for a liter in an old-school returnable bottle. That works out to barely more than $2 USD. Dark, malty and a little sweet. It’s a good beer.
A strong manly voice to go with these tangos. For listening, not so much dancing. Quality stuff. I don’t know squat about vintage tango. I picked this disc out of the stacks based solely on what I would expect from the jacket if it were a US product. I must have done well because the grumpy old guy in the shop lightened up and became friendlier when I pulled out something he approved of.
Palermo Cerveza Rubia and Tangos Michel Delon
This was tasty and refreshing, slightly malty with bright carbonation. A pleasant amber ale. So far beers in Argentina tend towards malty instead of hoppy. Also only 24 pesos for a liter! (aka, about $2 USD as of March 2015)
The record – usually if you need a hootchie-kootchie girl on your record jacket it means your music isn’t selling itself. This disk isn’t bad, pretty much standard stuff though recording quality seems a bit off.
