COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Similar to a Porter in color, our only Lager beer has a dry and spicy flavor. This beer is similar to a white wine. Its distinct flavor comes from the combination of a special yeast and different types of hops. Our Rubia al Vapor is fermented with a lager yeast brought from California, at higher temperatures than normal lagers.

KyotoLefty (6563) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Isetan Kyoto. Amber-orange color, quite cloudy, with a tall, fine head and evident carbonation. Very rich, malty nose, caramel, a bit of fudge. Almost more like a dunkel in the nose. Sweet malt, minerals, caramel, peaches, something a bit astringent, light hop flavor, then decent bitterness. Rather dirty in the malt area, yeasty, seems like they used extract. Not convincing. Heavy and cloying.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2163) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2014
Rubia al Vapor, quite a nice looking pour - a deep cloudy honey amber with a thick beige creamy head with no lacing but a creamy film floating atop the beer. Malty and fruity aroma, not bad. Medium bodied with a spritzy carbonation. The taste is surprisingly bitter, malts, nuts, some fruitiness maybe occasional subtle hints of fusel. Not too surprising as this beer seems to have been made in February - the height of the Chilean summer. Overall not too shabby. My general impression is a bit more boozy than the 5.8%, nice malts, bitter caramel, a bit of fruits, reminds me of some Mikkeller beers I had ages ago... decent but california common doesn’t spring to mind. Actually as it warmed up it grew on me and became more appetizing.

Bottle. Yeast, fruits, vegetables and malt aroma, a bit citrusy too. Cloudy amber colour. No head retention, flavour is sweet and slightly sour, dry after taste.... it feels a bit off, I remembered this beer much better than this.

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle, 5%. Vegetable aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has some vegetable, but also a refreshing acidity. A bit of paper in the finish, but not bad.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 16, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 A friend send me this one from Chile, so Today I’m drinking again this beer and it is completely different as the one I reviewed first, now it has more bitterness, It has a citrus aroma and flavor. It lacks that caramel flavor, but still sweet with a dry aftertaste. Interesting view of a California common. Not excellent but enjoyable. "Not a California Common at all, it taste more like a pale ale. Light beer with pepper, yeast flavor. Pretty similar to the first pale ale I brewed long time ago. It is just ok. Not going to drink it anymore."
