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.

Bottle, a clear pale gold with a foamy white head. A pungent grassy aroma with just a touc of citrus. Very carbonated in the mouth, with a malty flavour and an earthy bitter finish.

A Mes rate: Bottle from Floridita for PV’s leaving do. Bless PV for picking a place for her leaving drinks that had two beers I had not rated. Shame that neither of them were any good. Cardboard and corn, you know the score. Very bad.

Thanks again, Skyview. Yellow color with a large head. Sugary sweet aroma. Taste of very sweet grain with an almost salty finish. Definitely different and not all together bad.

Thanks to skyview for another crisp, clean lager. Straw colored body with a grainy flavor and a salty tinge I enjoyed.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2007
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.

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. Duft ? Smag: Kedelig. Ikke engang en fyraftensøl.

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.

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.
