Drinkable. Light head watery and corny with little interest. That said is not too shabby on a hot day.

Alright drink. Not a craft ale. But drinkable. Aroma and appearance hard to tell out of a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Light, with some notes of fruit, malt and honey. Nothing extraordinary.

HampshirePhil (137) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2013
62 cl bottle - Pure crisp taste, nice aroma but with little palate. Very enjoyable but nothing that would ever make it stand out apart from it’s Peruvian origin.

duft av malt. lite skum. Fin lys gyllen farge. Frisk litt syrlig smak. Helt greit drikke øl.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle @ Deans pale lager tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is skunked, malty and quite overwhelming. Flavour is rather sweet, prickly and malty. Short aftertaste, not as bad as expected..

jmgreenuk (4078) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s Pale Lager tasting, Den Haag. Sourced from Beers of Europe. Poured a light straw colour with a thin white head and some broke lace. The aroma is stale malt. The flavour is weak bitter. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty awful. I’m never going to Peru!
