My buddy picked this up for me while he was in Chile, excited that I get to add this one to this company's glowing portfolio

A - This beer poured a dark reddish brown color that produced a wispy off white head that had little retention and left no lace along the side of the glass

S - The aromas produced by this beer were not so much as unimpressive, as no existent. Even the Lager yeast smell that one would expect is barely there

T - The taste of this beer has some interesting elements, dark fruit is a central theme in this beer, some Lager yeast does creep up in the profile, otherwise pretty uneventful

M - The mouthfeel had a light body with a moderate to heavy amount of carbonation, All-American Pilsener written all over it

D - This beer is what it is, most beers from South of the border aren't eventful, and this one surely isn't. I just feel bad bashing my buddy's gift, but have to be true
