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.

Not quite as good as the Cristal, a bit thinner and fizzier or something. It’s an international pale lager with gold foil over the cap. Is that like a bum with a cell phone or a pinto with some 20s? Maybe in between those two.

Pale yellow. Very fizzy. Another international lager. Flavour as you would expect, but it ended with a distinct aftertaste of bile.

Sister-in-law brought a bottle back from her travels in Peru. Inoffensive yet unspectacular in every way. At least I can say I’ve drank a Peruvian beer now.

Really great lager, my new favourite! I’ve drunk it in several bars after every bartender seemed to be recommending it so i tried it and it is fabulous!! Really fresh and crisp with a rich aftertaste that just lingers long enough. It knocks the spots of every other Latin lagers - especially the Mexican ones!

The appearance is golden and the aroma is of a fresh beer I think due to the pure ingredients. The flavor is light but still has enough body to be acknolgeded as a qulaity beer. Overall this is my favourite beer.

Bottle picked up in Sainsburys. In honour of this years world cup I am trying to eat and drink what some of the participating countries favourite food and tipples are. Poland against Ecuador started with a shot of Vodka but unfortunately I couldn’t get a Ecuadorian drink so Peruvian was the nearest I could get. This poured golden, had very little aroma and even less taste, bit fizzy and a bit drab, the Vodka by comparison was excellent unlike Poland who lost 2-0.

(bottle - 12 oz) Straw yellow pour with a very thin white head. Aroma is dry grass with some bitter and stale hops. Flavor begins with a dry corn flavor followed by a bitter hop middle and a bitter and sour finish. Aftertaste is very sour and bitter with some dry hops at the very end.

35.5 cl bottles, 5% alc, but different label than the one shown here. Very nice light yellow color, hard head, medium-to-high carbonation, in scent some hoppy mouthfeel. Very nicely composed terrace beer, matches the climate perfectly.
