UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Bottled, thanks Lilith, Nigredo & Panzerfaust! Muddy dark yellow with rich, lively airy head. Lightly citric buttery nose. Light bodied with gently soft mouthfeel. Like whipped cream with lemon! Low hop rate and very low bitterness. The lemon doesn’t disturb all that much here, but without it it could have been a very good lager.

RAYBOY01’s wife brought back some interesting brews from her extended trip to South America, and this one is a goody. I’m frankly surprized to see it listed as a Pilsener. It poured a hazy yellow color, almost white like a wit, with a bubbly, seltzer-like head. The aroma was sweet, smelling like barley malt and wheat with sugar on it. There’s no hops in the nose. This has very lively (but soft) carbonation and is quite spritzy in the mouth. The flavor is much like a light golden ale with some citric fruitiness and a dash of honey. There’s no hops noticeable in the taste or in the finish, which is mildly sweet, but clean. A Pilsener? I doubt it. But, Good? Yes.TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2007

Bottle, a clear gold with a bubbly white head. Grassy hop aroma. Very crisp and clean palate with strong grassy flavours. A well made lager. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Tart aroma. Pours like a wheat. Citrusy sweet flavor with a weird fruitiness. Pretty decent and RARE brew. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2006 A beer from the 10th region and it is clear that when you escape the beers from region metropolitano there is some hope for the Chilean beer scene. It is indeed cloudy in the glass and topped with a good fluffy head. Sublte hop and malt aroma are there but this is not a specialty here. I agree that this has many more ale characteristics than that of a pilsner. In fact the departure from a lager style makes it a more attractive drink. Thank you to Panzerfaust and Lilith for this and other presents as a gesture of welcome to a wonderful country (again).

Pale and hazy yellow colour with a mostly diminishing white head. Honey and slightly skunked aroma. Toasted malt flavour with a faint bitter finish. Light to medium body and a dry finish.

This beer has a pale yellow body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter. Fukito (1059) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle, February 2007, Bottled, thanks to the chilean gang, Lilith, Nigredo & Panzerfaust! Slightly rancid, with a strong grass aroma. Healthy, shinny, golden color with a solid white head and sparky carbonatation. Taste is malty, some bread, grainy, nice bitter sensation, slightly medicinal aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth, but really fresh and refreshing. Really nice, quaffing, summertime unfitered "premium lager". Panzerfaust (859) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Smooth white headed pale amber lager with sediments which makes it cloudy. Head lasts for long and laces well. Aroma of fresh hops giving subtle flowery notes and some citric hints of orange. Tastes more like an ale than a lager. Flavor has a very good bittersweet character with notes of malt, cereal and some thin fruits. It ends with some astringency but not unpleasant at all. Excelent balanced and well-developed beer. One of the best from Chile. davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 16, 2007

No complex, exotic lager (no pilsener), refreshing and nice.
