Appearance: yellow turbid color. Little head, of white color and low persistency. Aroma: sweetness-sourness of fruits, such as pineapple, orange, pink grapefruit and tangerines. Pale Malty. The citric hoppy, with notes of herbs and pine. Flavor: sweet malty and fruity. Reminiscences of honey. Presence of tangerines and red apples. Sourness-fruitiness of peel orange and grapefruits. Dry finish, with medium and persistent hoppyness. Too a slight metallic tone in the end. Slight rancid note. Palate: light to medium carbonation. Light body with semi-viscous texture. Mediocre; but “a fun beer”, refreshing and better that all the "industrial Chilean beer". (sorry formy english)

Cloudy yellow body. White head. Lacing lingers in the glass’ walls. Sweet, citrusy aroma. The flavor is of course sweet, fruity with peach hints. The finish is somewhat bitter. Light to medium body. Its palate is very smooth. However, I had a cold when I tasted this so I’ll give it another try some day.

Dark mahogany color. No head--due to the pouring--very thin lacing, good film. Smooth coffee aroma, with hints of brown sugar, toasted malts, berries and cherries. Sweet flavor, very smooth and slightly bitter with soft coffee taste and some citrusy. Light to medium body. Abrupt finish, oily texture. The alcohol is not at all noticeable. I saw in a jar on the next table that its head was rocky and off-white

Draft: Shows a dark brown color with redish tones. Served without head, it shows a cute off-white lacing. Aroma is barely noticeable but after some effort I can feel notes of roasted malt, cherries and a little of dry apricots. Maybe if I let my imagination fly there is some caramel or brown sugar. Flavor is light and semi-sweet with a little of toasted grains, smoke and overripe cherries. Not bad but timid as hell. If the taste were stronger maybe I could say this beer reminds me a Bock. Hops are noticeable though. Good body as the "HBH Rubia" with a nice oily texture. Fine mouthfeel, clean and lively carbonated. It could be much better but it’s brewed for high drinkability & Chilean palates.

HBH Rubia
Draft: Shows a deep, cloudy yellow color. Served without head, it shows a decent white lacing. Aroma is as soft as possible. It reveals shy notes of lemon/lime and almost unnoticeable hints of cereal and bread. Flavor is citrusy with mild sweet touches and a somewhat astringent note in the finish. A slight trace of cereal can be percieved when holding it in the mouth. Nice rounded body, texture is thick for the style and smooth. Very refreshing and much better than any Chilean macro. Anyway my veredict is: Must try harder. Of course this is supposed to be drunk in high quantities, so it’s not complex at all.

The other of the two beers available in this brewpub. Like its blonde accomplce there is a definite twang of homebrew about this beer, it isn’t too prominent but there is evidence of it being a locally microbrewed beer. I don’t know about the stout reference here, as it is ore of an attempt at being a bock. I will defer the decicion until the next time I have a taste of this beer. In view of the dearth of good beers in this country it is better than most and worthy of some support at least.

Well, when I first came over to Santiago I had every intention of visiting this place to increase my firm hold on the Chilean beer stakes. something about having to work a bit got in the way. Well, this time was easier as the office of the company we have just acquired there is walking distance from this pub. That’s the good news. The other side of the coin seems to be that this is a bit of a homebrew type of taste, that surprisingly in a land of lager is not so bad. it is a hazy yellow on the pour and there are some definite hints of fruity esters abounding, especially apple and peach. Any more and it could be considered to be a real fault. The hop profile is low, as it seems tht the nation on the whole do not appreciate bitterenss or aroma over a more cloying sweetness. Look, it is a company giving this style of beer a go and so we can applaid them for going in the right direction.
