Good golden color, good white head. After that, disappointing. Is it even an ale? Tastes more like a simple lager, although competently made.

Interesting, a beer from Chile with a German name, done in an English style. Malty and sweet, brown in color, but clear, with barely enough of a head to notice. Smell and taste of toffee, but overall mouthfeel is watery.

Thanks to SHIG. Packs a malty punch, almost like malta drink. Not very delicious.

Flaska. Kopparfärgad öl med generöst vitt skum. Första doften: fotsvett. Ryggar tillbaka. Men sen dyker det upp torkad frukt, apelsinmarmelad och en svag rökighet. Nötig smak. Inslag av torkad frukt, ljus sirap och kavring.

Bottle. Intense and very sweet aroma. Nuts, raisins, flowers, caramel, some marzipan and even traces of mustard. The taste is very sweet which is a bit surprising given the rather dry body. Malty, light nutty and fruity taste, light astringent finish. Tiresome and too sweet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Copper color with a small white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, grain and a hint of grass. Light body, not much aftertaste.

Pours an amber colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty and caramel. Taste is medium sweet leading to a sweet finish with little bitterness. Underwhelming.

Not bad, has character like La Roja, or so I think (the argentian beer?). Also, has a similar character to Alpha King, I’m thinking some sort of melanoidin malt coupled with resiny hops. Not too much for hops on this one, but not a complete dearth of hops either.

Aroma is a little hoppy, maybe some lemon. But nothing about it saysEPA. Actually, crap lager is what it says and that has me worried. Color is handsome though, dark-golden/ruby body with a plump head of egg-shelled, cream bubbles. Head lasts for a longtime as well. Taste isn’t EPA, but its not the horrible lager the nose suggests either. It has an interestingly hop flavor, full malt palate and reminds me more of a red ale, with sweet malts, nut flavor, and spicy, yet musty hops. Fun palate and taste. I can’t give it higher than a 7 because its not what’s its supposed to be, however it works and I can’t fault a beer for that. Definitely try this beer from the best brewery I know of in Chile. Picked up at 4pack at Lider Mart in Arica, Chile.
