1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Why drink Bud when you can pay far more for imported swill? Fortunately, I only bought one 12 oz. bottle of this stuff. Basically an insult to the lager style. Almost no hops in the aroma or flavor. Just not much good in any way. One of the most unattractive beers I have ever seen in the glass after the foaming settles down. Yuck.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lively carbonation,golden color,small white bubbly head.Malty mildly sweet aroma with a medium hop presence.Hoppy taste,malty with a slight after taste of bitter hops,i can see this brew needed the high carbonation with out it i believe some real swill characteristics would pop up.there is a mildly acidic tone to this brew that hits at the beginning of the taste and runs almost to the tail end of the taste.Definately not a worth trying more then once.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with a light note of apple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. I expected so much more from a Peruvian beer. Sigh. Oh well, at least the scantily clad Flying Saucer waitress was kind enough to bring me an empty pitcher for...um...scientific purposes.

my favourite peruvian lager so far. ok it's yellow and fizzy but inoffensively so. slightly lemony and pale malty, with a delicate (some might say weak), tinny hop finish. but better than some, or should i say not as bad as some.

I liked the maltier characteristics of this one, both on the nose and on the palate. Sugars aren't as evident. Color is a nice rich gold but not overly thick. All in all, a drinkable lager. Crisp and refreshing.

Peruvians are proud of their beer, and in this one they can justly be so. Brewed in the high regions of Cusco (base of Inca Trail) with supposedly pure mountain water. I can say this was a treat. Pale yellow with a bitter finish. Comes in rickety old re0used bottles, which adds to it's rustic qualities.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A light-bodied, crisp lager with a decent amount of malt flavor (more than you'd guess if you were told you were about to drink a Peruvian lager).

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very yellow, with small head, looks like a sample of something that shouldn't be drunk. Sort of a sour bitterness, that makes it very difficult to consume. Not much flavour, despite a mild floral aroma. Definately up there on the poop scale.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden blonde with profuse carbonation and a bubbly head. This beer was not vile or undrinkable, but it certainly does not come close to anything resembling craftmanship either. It has a grainy, corn syrup aroma with overtures of urine and a stank beer taste with a bottled quality.
