Torobayo Pale Ale
(Cervecera Kunstmann)

One of several canned "craft" beers available in Chile. Torobayo also comes in a bottle and is one of the more popular "cervezas artenales" in the country. Along with this pale ale, Kunstmann also cans their lager which in my opinion is the best lager made in South America. 

From the Kunstmann site (translated):

"The "fruity" fragrance is a product of the high temperature of fermentation (18 to 20° C). It has a nice malty character, caramel flavor and fine fragrances of dry fruits. This was a very popular beer in the Victorian era, especially in Europe and India. Today it is again popular."

Here we go...

Pour - beautiful orange-red in color, sort of like blood orange juice. Neatly place head on top makes for a good looking pour.

Aroma - what it initially reminds me of is sweet citrus and apples. Actually its like ruby red grapefruit juice and apple juice together. That fades though and is replaced by caramel and brown sugar...or maybe a little dulce de leche!

Taste - tangy without a lot of hop character. It has a lot of estery fruit flavors like apples and pears. Nice malty sweetness and not too heavy on the tongue. Nothing fancy but very tasty. 

Overall - This "pale ale" is much sweeter and maltier than one might be expecting but its solid and ridiculously drinkable. Great stuff.

Note - Torobayo is a suburb of Valdivia, Chile. It lies west of Isla Teja and is connected to the city by the Río Cruces Bridge. The Kunstmann brewery and restaurant are located here. The name Torobayo literally translates as bull bay.
