    Yesterday I also tried two beers that my father had brought home from a business trip in Chile. The craft beer scene in Chile is expanding at a high rate, with new breweries opening all the time, so it will be really interesting to see what kind of beer they make. First up is an unfiltered lager (Lager Sin Filtrar), brewed by La Cerveceria Kunstmann, the largest ‘craft brewery’ in Chile. My Spanish isn’t the best, so it was a bit difficult to find any information on this brew, but it seems that it has been brewed with some Crystal malt and German hops. The bottle is interesting as well, since it has a misty/frosted/dirty (can’t find the word) look. Unfortunately I realized while drinking that the Best Before Date was 2 weeks ago, so this might explain some of observations.

    The beer has a golden-yellow color and is hazy. A slight white-colored head was formed during pour, that collapsed, leaving some lacing along the glass.

    The aroma has some malty and grainy tones, but overall the aroma was very light. The low score is not because there was anything bad in the aroma, but rather that there was almost no aroma at all.

    The flavor begins with some sweet and malty tones, lending just a hint of honey as well. There are some light earthy and herbal hop tones present as well.

    The beer has a smooth medium-light body, and a moderate-low carbonation level, making it quite pleasant to drink.

    Overall, this was a drinkable lager and much better than the bulk lagers found everywhere. Unfortunately it also seemed a bit tired and tasteless. This can though partially be explained by the drink before date.
