On bottle from Jumbo Bilbao, Santiago.
Copper coloured, good foam.
Aromas of malt, dried fruits, chocolate - quite high aroma intensity.
Medium body & complexity.immediate sweetness, but ok balance .
Pretty good beer, but to much on the sweet side for my taste.

330 ml bottle from Jumbo, Santiago de Chile. What’s up with Salzburg? First a 5.5 abv "Doppelbock" and now a 4.5 abv "Märzen". They should first read the style guidelines before tagging their beers with these names. Unless the abv is wrong which could also be the case with this beer. A clear copper pour with a small off-white head that dissappears quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of toffee, butterscotch and strong red tea. Reminds me more of a Scotch Ale than any German style I know but it’s by far the beer’s best feature. Tastes more like an ale than a lager and I suspect it’s top fermented. Sweet-ish but with a high sour note in the end. A hint of butter can be felt all the time and it lingers through the aftertaste. I can feel what the brewers tried to do with this one but didn’t fully accomplish. I am waiting for the Chilean brewers to refine their traditional ales before experimenting with less known styles that in most cases become failures. This one shot in all directions but didn’t hit once... but it’s still drinkable.

Fairly average. The bottle says extreme all over but I taste nothing extreme in this beer. A bit sour, a bit flat. But then again its 11:00 in the morning and Im just drinking this so i dont have to take it on the plane.
