Bottle at a Peruvian restaurant for lunch. Pours a clear pale yellow/gold with big white head. Aroma is malt and cardboard. Hay and corn come through in the taste. Overall, meh.

szeli (62) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2015
Lager bleibt Lager. Nichts spannendes, aber sehr erfrischend an warmen Tagen. Etwas malziger als das "normale" Lager, der Hopfen ist würzig.Aroma&Geschmack: Honig, süßes Malz, leicht würzig. Am besten wärmer als empfohlen trinken, dann hat es deutlich mehr Geschmack.

TedE (494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2015
11.2 fl oz bottle into glass. Very faint aroma of malt. Clear golden beer with small white head which leaves lacing. A few derisory bubbles ascend. Zingy mouthfeel, distant sweet malt taste. Vague hops, a touch of chalky mineral water, slight sour/sweet finish. Not bad but no reason to have another.

chinchill (2989) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2015
At the Peruvian Folklife Festival in D.C. Slightly darker, fuller body, and slightly more flavorful this average for style, with the usual high carbonation level. More malt forward aroma is followed by a hoop dominated flavor.Mild bitterness.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada, dos dedos de espuma poco duradera. Aroma neutro. En boca, nada del otro mundo, aguada, dulzona y Sosa. Olvidable.

ferrinche (30) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
notas a tofe, dulzor muy peculiar, podría llegar a empalagar si la tomamos en medio de una comida, no la recomendaría tampoco para días de excesivo calor. Espuma poco duradera, casi inapreciable. No es una mala opción para degustar después de una comida como postre. Recomendaría probarla ya que es poco común encontrarnos una cerveza con estas características en un supermercado.

Pours dark golden, with white head. Aroma is mild and malty. Taste is slightly sweet and fresh. Short-lasting finish with no bitterness.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Can found in Bolivia. Decent head and an okay golden body. Aroma of wet cardboard. Boring taste of lager-ness. Couldn’t tell this one from another one, but it’s not the worst lager out there.

Torrefacto (913) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2015
Cobrizo pálido y limpio con espuma marfil que desaparece rápido. Aromas dulces oxidados, ligero toque cítrico. Cuerpo ligero, maltoso, sabor dulce oxidado, final tímido.
