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. Pours dark straw with 2-finger splotchy white head. Nose is grainy pale malt and hopcitrus. Tastes grainy pale malty, with some fruit and hopcitric notes. Gets a bit tart late and loses some flavor, but all in all not too bad.

Bottled. Yep it’s a pale lager from Peru. It’s not bad but it’s most redeeming quality is that it provides me the opportunity to mark Peru off my list of countries.

From the bottle. Pours a light gold with a little bit of white head. These seems like a macro that could be from anywhere. I really wasn’t expecting much, just wanted to give it a try. Blah.

Bottle. A light golden colour, fizz but zero head. Crispy taste, quite sweet. A bit on the sticky sugary side.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle, Vinea, Liverpool. Purchased for sheer novelty value and expectations were low. Grainy, a touch of malt. Watery, with a nasty chemical tinged finish. A very average and boring lager which could really be from anywhere. Not as bad as Fosters or Bud though.

Bottle drank at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. The aroma is a very fruity malt. The taste was a smooth fruit filled malt body with a good mouthfeel. A cool bottle too. Drinkable.

Brought back from Peru from my friend: pours a clear watery yellow colour, small amount of carbonation, and heavy on the malts. dry mouthfeel, very full, but not a lot of flavor. it was fun to try it anyway, thanks alyssa:)

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Deep gold with a modest white head. Good amount of lacings for such a minimal head. Aroma is sweet malts. Nice flavor for a pale lager. Malty not too sweet with some lingering hop bitterness. Crisp, clean, refreshing warm weather beer. Better than average for the style.

jbuzz (812) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Clear and refreashing. Slight nuttyness with the malt. A very enjoyable Pale Lager.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Golden yellow. Aroma of grassy hops, corn and some sweet malt. Taste is more of the same wrapped up in an astringent body. Better than corona, but what isn’t?
