Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a clear yellow, a centimeter of head that quickly subsides to next to nothing. looks alright.

S- malty upfront, a touch biscuity and toasty, followed but a little bit of sweetness. not so much going on but everything is pleasant, and to style.

T- a touch of biscuity malt followed by some maiziness, cant really get much in the way of hops, but there is a slightly bitter finish.

M- light with a crispy carbonation, bitter finish, and the mouth ends dry.

O- Extra points for style here given that it reminded me of other european pale lagers, but i wasnt really much of a fan of this one, as its not a style i gravitate towards.

I tried the Valdosta at the Atton hotel in Santiago. It poured a clear golden with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent had hints of lemon. The taste was balanced fine and was easy to drink. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

330ml Green bottle, made by 'proud German desendants' to the '1516 German beer purity law' made from 'crystalline water from the mountains of Patagonia'.

An old gold colour, not your normal bright and crystal clear but more of a malty hue.

The aroma was malty and a lot better than most lagers I've had to smell.
The taste was malty and fairly sweet in flavour, one of the better lagers I had in the lager tasting evening it was reviewed at.

First beer I've had from Chile, not bad at all.
