2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
350 ml bottle. Nice looking lager with golden color and big white head. Wheat smell and grass. Sweet taste and kind of waterish. Soft aftertaste. Very good lager actually bought it beacuase today there was a huge volcano eruption in the south of the country (Volcán Calbuco), so a nice ocation :)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from an acquaintace who has just returned from Chile. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with some malty touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with heavy bready and malty notes and touches of yeast. Bitter and estery aftertaste with some farty notes in the afternose. Well, a macro to quaff but nothing special as such.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma: Cooked corn, hoppy spices
Appearance: Slightly hazy gold body. Large long lasting white head. Lacing
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, rather harsh. High hops flavours, vegatile, dry, crisp, string, medium-sweetness
Palate: Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation
Overall: The harshness makes the beer unpleasant. Would not recommend.
350 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, a very pale gold with a large foamy white head. An unfortunate pungent aroma. A grainy malt with a sweetness that is near to being honeyish - though is more a sickly syrup. Gets more dry in the finish, but not great.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks Cristián and David! A fruity and quite sweet beer, somewhat like an overly sweet Kolsch! Tasted a touch wheaty to me. A well-balanced flavour of malt, fruit, sweet grain and a touch of dryness although it needs more bitterness to be a serious lager. Nevertheless, a good drinking beer with lots of character for it’s strength and one I’d drink again. The plastic cap is slightly surreal though!!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, supermarket) Very nice premium lager, caught me by surprise, because the Antillanca beer is made by the same brewer and it’s pretty bad. Clear blond color, light bodied, persistent white head and fair carbonation. Aroma reminds me of cereal, light bitterflavor. Overall, good feeling in the mouth and very refreshing. Definately one of Chile’s best lagers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: blond-pale color. Medium head, good persistency, of white color.
Aroma: intensive malty, banana, slight candy, honey, vanilla; citric-fruitiness of lemon, orange and pineapple. Strange complexity for style, but fine and nice. Herby hoppy.
Flavor: sweet malty pale; fruitiness of grapefruits, pineapple, banana and peaches. Light tones of candy, nuts, honey and vanilla. Medium and persistent herby-hoppy finish. Too, metallic final.
Palate: light body, silky texture. Medium carbonation.
I’m really surprised with this beer; relatively complex, balanced and refreshing. Very advisable. However, the plastic cap (bottle version) is not at level of beer.
