I tried this beer at the Platinum Club in Santiago. It poured a clear copper with white head that left some lace. The scent had faint malt. The taste was nicely balanced and ok to drink. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Interesting, a beer from Chile with a German name, done in an English style. Malty and sweet, brown in color, but clear, with barely enough of a head to notice. Smell and taste of toffee, but overall mouthfeel is watery.

One of the best amber ale I´ve tried so far.

I think the biggest problem with this beer is that they label it as a pale ale on here. This beer is much more of an amber lager. The most wonderful thing about this beer is that it has a great flavor with an even more splendid mouthfeel.

Normally the appearance is better, but for whatever reason today, the foam has scaled back to almost nothing rather quickly, although it is leaving a nice lacing around the glass.

3.54/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color verging on copper; a modest head caps the liquid and a few dots and dashes remain

Smell: Toasted grain, toffee and earthy hops

Taste: Toasted grain and toffee, up front, with an earthy hop character developing in the middle; increasingly grainy in the back end, although the toffee malts dominate the finish; some diacetyl seems apparent

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a bit slick

Overall: An OK beverage that has more flavor than many of the other beers in Chile but it is not up to the standards being set in other countries for an English Pale Ale

Copper color with a thin head with low retention.
Predominant aroma of sweet caramel malt and biscuit, cinnamon, butterscotch and very light hay and grains.
Amazing how the taste changed from the bottles I had outside its home country. Over there I felt much less hay and grains which is generally big on this brand, which is not really bad, it is in my opinion their trademark. But it felt more pleasant this way. Flavor of caramel and toasted malts, a bit of herbal and floral hops, wood and cinnamon. Mild bitterness.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
As other Kunstmann, the focus here is malt, malt, and malt. But still it is a nice brew and fairly drinkable.

A: Pour is clear copper and the head is medium tall and off white, quite fluffy and a bit uneven. An aggresive sizzeiling sound is heard during the pouring. Decent lacings.

S: Buttery and rich malty, sweet. There is a light off-smell though - canned corn - in that part it reminds me of an Adjunct lager. Bitter hops.

T: Malt is a bit roasted and somewhat sweet. Bitter hops and rich buttery notes. A metallic vibe - like that I get from an Altbier. Some flowers and some red apples.

M: Rather long aftertaste, buttery and bitter. Body is on the fuller side, but very oily. Carbonation is rather low.

O: A bit all over the place, but acrually not bad.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- pours a very clear light brown with about an inch of fluffy head that quickly subsides, leaving a touch of lacing. looks alright.

S- straight up there are some toasty malts, and a touch of non-descript bittering hops, but not so much else.

T- straight up a touch of toast malts, followed by a bit of sweetness. not much in the way of hops, maybe a touch of citrus if im being generous, a slightly bitter finish.

M- fills the mouth somewhat, with a touch of prickly carbonation, doesn't feel too bad at all.

O- overall, nothing too special, not a whole lot going on, but also nothing unpleasant, wouldnt be the first thing i go for.

A - pours with a small head of off white foam on a clear, amber brown body. The head fades quickly and leaves moderate lace.

S - light toffee malt with a hint of brown sugar and some musty, slightly skunked hops.

T - notes of bread and light malt up front. Light bitterness in the finish with a hint if sour hop flavor.

M - medium light body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - seems like it would be a halfway decent beer if out wasn't in green glass. As it is, the hops have become skunky and it really isn't worth drinking.
