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.

12 oz bottle. Full head atop a brown ale that looks like coca cola. Very woody earthy malty sweet aroma. Medium to full bodied. Very heavy syrupy sweet pear flavor.

Another mediocre cerveza. Fizzy, bubbling yellow macro lager look. Nose of mildly sharp hops and adjuncts that translate into the mouth as undesirable. Probably a a good beer on a hot Peruvian summer day, but here in the PNW it gets little love. For the same price, I’ll drink something better.

Pretty nondescript lager style beer, has a bit of body to it but nothing much to write home about. Tesco 4 pack.

This beer is not bad really, better in a hot day. Smooth abd crisp, a pale yellow colour not much of a head. Has to me a bitter aftertaste.

Bottled. Hoppy scent. Had a malty taste with hints of grass and corn. Clean crisp finish. Not bad.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2007
12oz Bottle: Pours almost vacant of any aesthetic character, pale with no head. Light sweet aroma. Cereal flakes and corn mash. Thin and bland body, slightly sweet with some crystal and corn. Just some Peruvian swill.

Jan, 2007 330ml bottle from ASDA. In an open and blind tasting with Cerveza Aguila, Brahma, Palma Louca and Michelob Ultra this did average. Very soft almost creamy carbonation. Vomit and French/Belgian aroma. Some malt when breathed in. Lacks flavour yet tastes a little bit dirty - a lager hop bitterness, like sweepings from the floor; then a very late grain of sea salt. There’s something mineral, and there’s something sort of alive. I don’t like this, but there’s a hint of character lurking somewhere amidst the blandness. The foam lasts and lasts. [1.9]
Jan, 2014 330ml brown bottle. Christmas gift. Robust earthy flavour - russet apples, slightly brown and bruised. All malt lager - whatever difference that makes, as this tastes dirty and grainy. Few hops. It’s drinkable, but not impressive. [2.1]

Pours a three finger white head that vanishes quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear pale amber color. Light carbonation and very light bodied. Nose similar to hay. Starts and finishes without much flavor, some hoppiness, boring. $1.35 for a 12oz bottle from John’s Market Place Tigard, Or.
