1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The bottle I have says ’Amber’. She could be a friend of Paris or just incorrectly named. This is more like the pale ale it is described as. Another flat start however with a ring of head around the glass. Definite bubblegum and banana esters in the nose. The same can be said for the flavour which carries with it a strong effercvescence immediately on the palate. Another average beer I’m afraid.
330 cc bottle from Jumbo Los Ángeles. A non foamy beer with a fruity aroma. The flavor reminds red apples, vanilla and caramel. Taste is very light to be a authentic ambar ale. Needs more robustness and intensity, but at the end you get a likeable and thin final in palate. AlfredoGarcia (294) - Santiago, CHILE - JUL 30, 2015
330 ml bottle. Sweet malt smell. Amber color with ugly white head. Very waterish unbalanced unsweet taste, with actually a better aftertaste. I’m completely dissapointed with this Mestra beers, they doesn’t even want me to write more about them. Just expensive and bad for what you’re getting. Avoid.

Pours a shinny brown/ darkcopper color with golden hues. Aroma is faint burnt caramel and some molasses. Flavor is nuts/ burnt caramel with some oxidized notes. Medium to light palate, light aftertaste. Rather too sweet and boring. Rodriguez (364) - Quito, ECUADOR - SEP 30, 2014
This beer is easy to find and I thought it was a bad one. Mistake, it is a very decent malty, biscuity, caramel beer, very subtle aroma but a good balanced flavor and bitterness. Lots of chill haze, and good head retention. It is a decent every day beer, if nothing better is available. Will drink it again definitively.

Appearance: Clear light amber body. Spare off-white head.
Flavour: Biscuit, medium sweetness, light bitterness, crisp,
Palate: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I could have a few, but I think the sweetness will get to me.

This beer is one of the best chilean beer, it taste is very special, is my favorite beer, tmoreau (4816) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Green 12 oz. bottle, labeled as Amber Ale, and poured to a 10 oz. sampling glass with a hazed, amber hue, modest, off white, large bubbled head that diminished rather quickly to a small ring and film, and sparse spots & streaks of lacing. Maybe a hint of mid-fruit in the nose, but mainly caramel and sweet cookie, or graham cracker. The flavor was similar, adding low to medium hop bitterness, low carbonation, medium to light body, and a touch of metallic taste. Definitely an Amber, with a few good notes. More hop presence in the aroma and better carbonation, without the metal, would have helped greatly. RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2010
Above average, but not that much more. Too sweet and single-sided for my liking. Very much like a Smithwick’s was my first impression. Not bad, still.
