Copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Predominant aroma of caramel malt, dry fruits and nuts.
Likewise, lots of nuts and caramels notes that reigns over a faint herbal hop with hints of mint, dry fruits, guaraná and licorice. Dry aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation.
Decent nutty beer, though in line with other Chilean top range that focus on malt sweetness. There is room for further hopping even considering a malty target brew.

This beer is OK. It's not bad, but it's not great. Comparatively, it is similar to other medium-scale Chilean craft/"craft" beers such as Kunstmann or maybe Kross (but Kross produces much better beer overall imo). Or, if comparing it to a familiar US brewery, it tastes like something that might come from Sam Adams. It's tasty, you can find it lots of places, but it isn't doing anything different or presenting anything that would be very memorable.

Taste: Malty sweetness overwhelms, as is the case with many/most beers in Chile.

Color: It has a nice gold/amber color with no sediment or particles. It seems very fresh.

Smell: Clean with lots of malt and grains.

Body: Clean and refreshing. This would be a decent late summer/early fall beer to session with.

Pour: Pours smooth into a glass with a frothy white head.
