2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Picked up a single 330ml bottle at John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours a clear, golden pale brew with a quick disappearing white head that leaves behind a white ring. Aroma of slight skonk, some sweet caramel multi-grain malt, corn grits, roasted almonds and grassy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and some sweet pear. Finish is slightly sweet and then clean cut with no bitter aftertaste.

A very good pale lager. Definitely crisp. Sweet and salty. Yellow appearance and drinkable in hot weather.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Has a yellow dark color. An a moderate white head, that mostly diminishes. has something from aroma to malt, sweet malt and adjunct. Sweet flavor, butter (maybe pop corn).
Light body and moderate carbonation. It is a tolerable beer. At some time I drank the Cusqueña brewed in Germany, and it was better than this.

pale Ale ????
Lys øl uden smag. Minder om en kedelig hof uden kulsyre.
Ikke engang en fyraftensøl.

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.
