Golden color with a very thin head with no retention.
Very light aroma of sweet malt and cereals.
Initial refreshing flavor with notes of corn, pale malt, some oxidation and faint floral hops. Mild booze given the light body. Dry aftertaste.
Light to watery body with good carbonation.
Thirst quencher Adjunct Lager. Drink it only cold.

Royal Guard (5%) is generally available in 6x350cc cans which can be purchased for around 3100 Chilean pesos, which is around 5.63 US dollars/3.39 British Pounds. There is nothing special about this beer but it does have its own unique soft and creamy flavour that I haven't come across before. It has a velvety/silky aftertaste which is quite unusual. Royal Guard is definitely not a great beer but it is considerably better than the other common cheap Chilean beers like Cristal and Escudo. A better alternative is the new Royal Guard Black Label beer which was recently launched here in Chile. The Black Label version has a bit more flavour, is sold only in bottles and has an increased alcohol percentage of 6%. Generally Royal Guard is ok purely as a cheap thirst quencher when I'm low on cash, but don't go looking for any complex flavours as you will be very dissappointed. If you are looking for good quality Chilean beers then I recommend that you try Kunstmann, Kross or Mestra. There is also a good adjunct Bolivian beer sold here called Paceña and a good Peruvian beer called Cusqueña.

This is the Chilean equivalent of natural light. Only available in cans and 40 oz bottles (no they don't use ounces there, but hell if I remember the cc's). A pretty bad pale lager that is cheap as all get out, but not even a favorite of the non-gringo non-beergeek crowd. Drank in a nightclub because there was nothing else to quench mine thirst.
