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.

This has that wet cardboard, from underneath the cat’s littler box kind of aroma. Nice upfront skunkiness, this beer tastes like stale buttered bread and some other adjuncts, corn perhaps. Bland.

A co-worker of mine bought this back form Peru for me. Gee thanks. Large bright white frothy head. Good carbonation. Aroma of a skunks ass. Once that gets washed out it become a mish mash of corn, cardboard and adjunct. Color is a pale gold. Soft bready flavor with some more corn and a bit of hops. Finish is pretty dry and pasty with only a light hops bitterness. Pretty crappy.

Padron4KM (531) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2006
12 oz bottle, best before 5/17/06.
Pours clear golden yellow with a soapy white head. Head dissapates rapidly and leave no lacing.
Aroma is bland, light malt, cereal, maybe some corn.
Flavor is light, clean a little metalic.
short, clean, dry finish. boring. not horrible just boring.

Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 17, 2006
Very pale yellow lager with minimal head that shows poor retention. It has a malty nose, fesh and clean but boring like most sweet lagers. It has also, a little more flavor than other lagers from the region, but that’s not much since the mouthfeel is very dull and watery. Smooth and with low bitterness, an average lager.

So, here I am sitting down and doing my expenses for the last trip to Chile. And look what pops up. A list of some more beers had on my visit to Santiago. And guess what? These Peruvuans use the same recipe as every other bloody brewer in this part of the world. If these were toxic the whole South American breing fraternity could all be lumped together as cereal killers. Corn, pale malt, metallic and thin. Wine time again I feel.l

Super blonde. Medium head. Light fruity aroma, not unpleasant at all. Taste is very sharp with half rotten hay, chemical compounds and oxidation. Thin body.
