2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle: Props to my pilot bud for bringing this back from Peru. Superior to the other Peruvian I just rated (Cristal) for sure. Mild aroma of sweet malts. Pours light goldish/amberish with a white head that is quick to disappear. Light and crisp with some fruitiness (pear?) in the aftertaste. Overall not too bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear gold appearance with a small, greyish head and no lacing. Low keyed aroma, some sweet maltiness, slightly vegetal. Light bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with an inoffensive. lightly hopped, grainy, sweet malt taste. Dry, short lived finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This has got some bad reviews, but considering it is a lager and is from Peru (which is a nothing country where every hectare is a million miles above sea level and is inhabited by llamas and pygmys alone), it’s alright. Kind of in the style of a decent Mexican lager - pale amber in colour, quite fizzy yet smooth and pretty sweet. Cool bottle too. Drink ice cold with a fiery hot chilli (or Peruvian equivalent - i.e. curried llama and rainforrest stew).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Full head atop a brown ale that looks like coca cola. Very woody earthy malty sweet aroma. Medium to full bodied. Very heavy syrupy sweet pear flavor.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another mediocre cerveza. Fizzy, bubbling yellow macro lager look. Nose of mildly sharp hops and adjuncts that translate into the mouth as undesirable. Probably a a good beer on a hot Peruvian summer day, but here in the PNW it gets little love. For the same price, I’ll drink something better.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty nondescript lager style beer, has a bit of body to it but nothing much to write home about. Tesco 4 pack.

This beer is not bad really, better in a hot day. Smooth abd crisp, a pale yellow colour not much of a head. Has to me a bitter aftertaste.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz Bottle: Pours almost vacant of any aesthetic character, pale with no head. Light sweet aroma. Cereal flakes and corn mash. Thin and bland body, slightly sweet with some crystal and corn. Just some Peruvian swill.
