I had a few of these beers on my trip to Chile. The beer had a light gold color with a smaller white head with modest features. Its aroma was some grassy hops and a bit of barley malt, nothing distinguishing. A decent lightly bitter flavor with some light hops. The beer was on the thinner side, a bit watery and wet and had low carbonation. Nothing too exciting about the beer, but it was decent and cheap.

Ah it seems they’ve changed the packaging a little. Now my liter bottle has a pry-off cap instead of a plastic screw off one. Bottle says 4.6%. Super pale. Cleaner than escudo, much less garbage. Lighter too, but that’s mainly probably just the lower alcohol.

Bottle. It’s yellow, it’s white, it’s beery, it’s industrially bad. Indistinguishable from Escudo except in price.

Pale piss yellow, not much aroma. Huge white head. Mildly bitter flavor, not much finish. Forgettable.

Bottled, 355ml?, pasteurised, from Mel, cheers. Pale gold with white head. Hard to distinguish from many Pale lagers, thin and corny, a little sulpherous on the nose, sweetish. Not the worst, but nothing that makes it drinkable either.

Good head, nice color, but that’s all. No taste, no aroma. I guess that’s why the recommendation it to drink it really cold. Otherwise you realize there’s nothing to enjoy. It’s only good for thirst and for a hot day.

This is about the seventh beer I have tried from around the world that was called Cristal, the previous ones weren’t anything outstanding and this one is no different.

Pours gold with a thin film of white bubbles. Smells metallic with lots of apples and sweet malt. A touch of hops are there when tasting this one. Another crappy mass produced pale lager that is completely lacking in depth, except this one is also watery and might as well be a spritzer.

Creo que lo mejor que tiene Cristal son las mujeres de su Team....de cerveza poco... espuma ligera y poco persisitente...aromas muy sucios..algo de malta...nada de Lupulo sabor muy devil, bastante aguado, poco sabor. amargor malo muy pesado poco amable. Es la mas vendida en Chile....por sus mujeres...

A very light beer. Good for a summer holyday. It is not borring, it has some originality.
