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.

Marginally better than the Callao Pilsen.cards04, if you’re watching this - prepare for a string of exotic pale lagers :)

355ml can. Yellow pour, clear. Thin white cap. Nose has sweet graininess. Taste has sweet grains, light grass and a touch metallic. Dryish plain finish. Standard carbonation and a light body. A typical international pale lager, not much else to say, pretty much what i expected.

Decent lager, slightly sweeter than most and I think it’d be ever so slightly sickly if you had a few. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

edsspoon (497) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle - pours light amber with a head that tries to form but gets nowhere. Aroma is metallic, vanilla and alcohol. Taste of caramel, sweet malts, light toastiness and spiciness, pretty watery. Medium body, medium to strong carbonation. It’s not very lager-like - okay but very weak and watery.

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Internacional mercado: Aroma smells awful and smells sort of fruity as if this was apple cider instead of beer. The beer taste just as awful and taste just like a malt drink but with a much flatter carbonation level. It must be old or wasn’t properly bottled because the oxidization has occurred. What a waste of money. I don’t believe I have ever rated a beer so low in scores in my history of my 10 + years as a Ratebeer member despite not being the worst thing I have tasted.

This beer seems to be the flagship beer in peru, it is basically avail anywhere, restaurants, shops. hotels you name it. So basically it was my go to drink for my vacation....after a bad episode of Pisco Sour resulted in Salamenolla poisioning from the raw eggs....note with beer you will not get this, stick with beer and you will always be good! Anyway, this is s a mediocre beer but it is beer and in Peru this does the job.
