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.

Bottle. Smells of grain, straw, grass, flowers, light dough a faint fruitiness and white wine. Head is large, frothy, white, with virtually no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear gold. Flavor is lightly sweet and acidic to start, and finishes lightly bitter. Palate is light, watery and has a lively to fizzy carbonation. Not a whole lot of anything, but light and refreshing with a unique taste.

The Incas might have defeated the Spanish if they had consumed more of this fine lager.

hopscotch (10147) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle... Clear, light yellow lager with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Pleasant clover honey aroma and flavor with only an afterthought of bitterness. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Finishes sweet and lightly tart. The label claims it’s an "all malt" beer. Much better than expected!

Forgettable. Watery and uninspired. It might of had a bit of sourness to it? On the other hand, not bad considering the origin.

11.2 oz bottle. This beer was bad. Body was clear golden color, aroma was nasty ass, taste was same. I would only drink this if I was stuck in Peru and had no other way to kill myself.

lb4lb (2574) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Pale gold as they come with no lasting head. Smell is of watery honey like malt. Very simple and lightly sweet. Taste is sweet with a hint of balancing bitterness. Very watery like a light beer. Simple no frills pale lager. Drinkable, but definitely unremarkable. At least it wasn’t skunked and contained no "off " flavors.
