Our objective when elaborating this beer was to combine the pleasant fruity aromas originating from the traditional high fermentation (16-20°C) with the use of two types different of aromatic hops, that give to this beer unique and really unmistakable personality. Of golden color, intense and characteristic fruit aromas, with notes of caramel and fruits in finish, leaving a refreshing citrusy and dry bitterness. Ideal for accompanying red meats like lamb or like appetizer, where its delicate bitterness sensitizes the palate for the next flavors.

A thoroughly unimpressive English "golden" ale. Although highly regarded in the still very infant Chilean market, this beer does not make the cut.

Bottle in Malmö. Not my favourite style but being from Chile this was better than I expected.

Satyroneto (263) - BRAZIL - APR 2, 2015
Cor de ouro envelhecido, brilhante, com espuma branca de baixas formação e persistência com muito pouco lacing. Aroma agradável, porém tímido de frutas amarelas, caramelo e um toque de lúpulo herbal. Sabor inicial de caramelo com final amargo seco; retrogosto adstringente com leve dulçor de frutas amarelas; corpo e carbonatação médias. Alta drinkability.

loubar (156) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
330 cc bottle in Santiago. Hazy copper color with a thin head. Nose of yeast with toasted malt notes. Flavor of sweet caramel and toasted malts. Hints of apple and citrus. Finishes dry with a tiny bit bitterness. Light body with good carbonation. Session-able, however, as with all of the beers in this area, there is a noticeable absence of hops which would have balanced the sweetness.

Grumbo (970) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from bierpost.com Pours a bright amber brown colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit and honey. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Body is towards medium, with a slightly oily texture. Quite good.

nigredo (37) - Santiago de Chile, CHILE - FEB 11, 2015
Well brewed beer, not among the best of Kross. Nothing remarkable in its taste and body, which are the weakest features in this beer. The most achieved is its elegant and mild aroma, well defined by hops.

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Golden color with a small white head and a very low retention. Low hops aromas with some fruity notes and some esters. A little touch of caramel flavor and low bitterness. Don’t last in the mouth.... A little bit under Rothhamer production, but quite good at the same time.
