1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(bottle March 2009, supermarket) Cloudy yellow with white head that last. Skunky acid smell, citric and kinda hopy floral. Taste is so citric that I can not recognize anything else, no malt or hops, little bitter aftertaste. High carbonation contribute to the acidic flavor. Maybe a contaminated bottle or really close to expiration date (90 days according to Colonos)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale yellow and cloudy with a small but persistent white head. Very fruity aroma of banana, strawberry, lemon, and also grains. Flavor is bittersweet with balanced bitterness, fruity, malty, and a rich citric touch. Thin texture and medium body. Excellent Pilsener!!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2007 (in bottle, supermarket in Chile).
In the aroma, they appear softly, the malt dries and overcoat the herbs. It is of a clear, but cloudy and turbid color. In the flavor they intermingle one average amargor, with one very light acid. In the palate has very good body and good texture. I am not sure well that is a beer pilsener, but if is more than a lager.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, February 2007, Bottled, thanks to the chilean gang, Lilith, Nigredo & Panzerfaust! Slightly rancid, with a strong grass aroma. Healthy, shinny, golden color with a solid white head and sparky carbonatation. Taste is malty, some bread, grainy, nice bitter sensation, slightly medicinal aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth, but really fresh and refreshing. Really nice, quaffing, summertime unfitered "premium lager".

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Bottled, thanks Lilith, Nigredo & Panzerfaust! Muddy dark yellow with rich, lively airy head. Lightly citric buttery nose. Light bodied with gently soft mouthfeel. Like whipped cream with lemon! Low hop rate and very low bitterness. The lemon doesn’t disturb all that much here, but without it it could have been a very good lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2006 A beer from the 10th region and it is clear that when you escape the beers from region metropolitano there is some hope for the Chilean beer scene. It is indeed cloudy in the glass and topped with a good fluffy head. Sublte hop and malt aroma are there but this is not a specialty here. I agree that this has many more ale characteristics than that of a pilsner. In fact the departure from a lager style makes it a more attractive drink. Thank you to Panzerfaust and Lilith for this and other presents as a gesture of welcome to a wonderful country (again).
