Cusqueña is a super-premium lager from Cuzco, the seat of the Inca empire. Brewed since 1911, it uses only the finest natural ingredients, including pure mountain water from a source at 18,000 feet in the Peruvian Andes.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada, dos dedos de espuma poco duradera. Aroma neutro. En boca, nada del otro mundo, aguada, dulzona y Sosa. Olvidable.

ferrinche (30) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
notas a tofe, dulzor muy peculiar, podría llegar a empalagar si la tomamos en medio de una comida, no la recomendaría tampoco para días de excesivo calor. Espuma poco duradera, casi inapreciable. No es una mala opción para degustar después de una comida como postre. Recomendaría probarla ya que es poco común encontrarnos una cerveza con estas características en un supermercado.

huineman (396) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Can found in Bolivia. Decent head and an okay golden body. Aroma of wet cardboard. Boring taste of lager-ness. Couldn’t tell this one from another one, but it’s not the worst lager out there.

Torrefacto (893) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2015
Cobrizo pálido y limpio con espuma marfil que desaparece rápido. Aromas dulces oxidados, ligero toque cítrico. Cuerpo ligero, maltoso, sabor dulce oxidado, final tímido.

AWS9 (544) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Fairly noticeable malt backing to this relatively simple lager. Tastes as if it COULD be a major miss, but actually fairly palatable. Hardly good, but passable. Not a standard macro lagers often reach.
