    Second of the Chilean microbrews was Leyenda’s British Bitter. Leyenda (translating to Legend) seems to be a quite small-scale and unknown (hard to find any information on it) microbrewery located in Santiago, currently having 3 beers in their portfolio: a golden ale, a bitter, and a porter. I couldn’t find any detailed information on the British Bitter, but I assume that the hops have an English origin, and Leyenda promise on their webpage that all their beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated in the bottle.

    The beer has a golden-amber color and is slightly hazy. A very slight white-colored head was formed during pour, that collapsed quickly, leaving no lacing along the glass.
    As the Kunstmann Lager, the aroma of this beer was overall very light, but still featured malty, caramelly and grainy tones.
    The flavor is dominated by sweet, caramelly and malty tones, with some light floral hop tones as well.
    The beer has a smooth medium-light body, and a moderate carbonation level, making it quite pleasant to drink.
    Overall, this was also a drinkable beer, but I personally prefer more hop-centered beers. I felt this was a bit too malty for my taste.
