The most satisfying part about this beer is the "Oh Shit" Kris will utter at the frustration of yet another country being represented on TOBP (Yes, Kris, San Marino is a country...Wiki it, it's tiny but it's there!). Considering the country has fewer residents than SAB or Inbev has employees, I don't think we're going to see too many other breweries pop up there. La Puténa is a Doppio Malto (double malt), similar in taste and consistency to a Doppelbock. It's fairly malty, as the name suggests, but pours kind of flat. It comes in a novelty flip-top bottle, which I'm betting is the reason for at least half of its sales. Due to its price, I don't find too many redeeming qualities.
