Cerveja sem compromisso. Aparência bem dourada, límpida e com colarinho branco. Melhor que as comuns, mas pouca coisa.

A nice Peruvian beer. Very nice lager on a hot summer day. If I'll find it in Europe I consider having another one.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2013
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, bit vegetable, light vanilla, reminding somewhat of WD40. Sweet malty flavour, nuts. Watery body, sweet malty finish.
(From 33cL bottle @ Benzai’s place. Thanks for sharing, Rene!)

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 4.8% Very deep golden yellow colour on the body with a good sized white head, thick and soapy, with average retention and medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma is heavy on malts with some fresh grass coming from the back. Taste is also malty but much less than the aroma led me to believe. Again grass, some light hops, very refreshing. Not much on the aftertaste. Thin body, carbonation is okay, dry feeling on the palate. Overall quite okay for a pale lager.

vipinvelp (1901) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Clear darker yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is bit sweet pale ale. Taste also bit sweet, no bitterness. Short barley aftertaste. (Houston 201310)

Cerveja leve com amargor bom e bem resfescante. Excelente para dias de calor. Uma das mais famosas do peru. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another every day lager. One for the masses. Nothing terrible at all but not really enjoyable in any way

Benzai (6460) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle [thanks to Teddybeer] shared with Dutchdrebus and Martinus @ weekly tasting. Hazy light orange color, virtually no head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly dry and lightly bitter. Not a lot to tell, but nothing really wrong with it either.
