worldbeertaste (1702) - West Midlands, - NOV 17, 2012
Though its a pale lager its 100% malt, or so they claim and for the most part it doesnt’ taste as bland as other pale lagers. Medium gold with a frothy, creamy lasting white head. Smells of malt, and cereal with a some lemon sourness in the background. Hops. Medium/thin watery soft carbonated body. Sweet malt with a dry salty finish. Its a clean simple lager. Bit not aweful.

weordie (147) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Pours golden with a good foamy head. Aroma is absent. Very watery palate. Not really any taste, maybe a hint of malt. Not good, not bad just nothing.

MarkoNm (914) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average white head. Malty aroma, slightly grainy and little bit skunky - not much there. Taste is sweet, followed by what is a dissastrous body. No bitterness, very sweet and just no... One of the worst ones.

Not offensive. I'd rather have this than Beck's, I guess. But not worth your time. Shouldn't be called beer... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cimbasso (292) - - NOV 23, 2014
Sampled from a 62cl bottle. A golden colour with a slightly red tinge. Whitish head. The has malty aromas and a creamy malt taste. Surprisingly full tasting, but not much bitterness. Slightly sweet, toffee-like taste and very light hop flavour. Not dreadful, but not particularly great. I like the Inca wall depicted in the glass of the bottle.

Clear golden colour, average size white head; aroma of maltyness with some vegetables; taste is the same with minimal hoppy bitterness - drinkable

Bottle in Peru. Smell doesn't have much, maybe some light grain. Taste is so light, watery even. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a thin head on a straw body. The aroma is mild grain. The taste is grainy with mild bitterness. The texture is crisp with a bit more body than expected. The flavor isn’t too bad. Great with Peruvian food.
