Translates to English as “posh” the quality or state of being elegant, stylish, or upper-class.

In the vernacular, roughly a “Rich Kid’s Beer” Beer

Not even close: “pijo” es/en @WordReference

You know, that first definition listed in WordReference is usually not the most commonly used when you hear such a word around here.

My translation: “DICK. What a beer!”. Wink

Rich kid named Dick who’s the spokesman for the local crisp factory.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

This is a new product from the same company which manufactures the “Pijo, ¡qué rico!” chips.

The story comes back to the moment when a rival firm launched the “Acho, ¡qué bueno!” chips not long ago. Because of their rampant success, Patatas Rubio S.C.L. reacted to it with a stylish and well done product (“Pijo, ¡qué rico!”) with the same marketing formula, which is a call to our very slang language.

Actually, I wasn't very aware of all of this “Chip Wars” stuff.

Well, this one is a light ale (4.5% ABV), no wonder as that is the most consumed kind around.

And, well, tastes nicely.

That “Arrogant Bastard” looks like a funny tasting experience; reminded me of “Voll-Damm” (7.2%).

But hell, paid €0.82 for that 33.814 fluid ounces bottle of Pijo at the grocery store, and absolutely zero apologies for such a decision. Really nice price/quality fellows.
