worldbeertaste (1789) - 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.

Homer321 (3835) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle with lunch at a food place. Nose is lightly floral with a little pils malt. Crystal clear pale gold. Taste us nondescript bland but most importantly it isn’t flawed, bad, or too sweet. Decent enough.

Svesse (7680) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2016
(Bottle, Giraffe, London Heathrow Terminal 5, 24 April 2016) Golden colour with dense, white head. Malty nose with bread, grain and hay. Malty, slightly sweetish taste with notes of bread, grain, hay and a low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. No evident faults, but generic and quite boring. Drinkable but unnecessary.

ClarkVV (5216) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle at Caracas, 4/16/16.
Pale golden, very light, filtered, force carbed, etc....small white head.
Smells nowhere near as offensive as some of the bigger offenders (bud lite, coors, icehouse, things like that). Cereal notes, wax, seltzer, light bready notes.
Very spritzy, bready, with stale cereal notes, saltwater, wax and a light bitterness on the finish that helps ameliorate some of the macro qualities. Not great, but passable if you’re low on options in Peru, I’m sure.

MikeJslc (777) - USA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle brought back from Peru by gription79. Deep gold, clear, thin white head. Grainy and slightly sweet malt, a hint of light fruit, neutral balancing bitterness. Standard international light lager.

Bottle at Bodega in Birmingham. Pours golden with thin head. Aroma of hay and malts. Malt heavy taste with a little grass. Carbonation is OK. Just another pale lager

PapaCanard (45) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2015
L’or des incas ne se résume pas à cette bière. Traditionnelle sur les cartes des restaurants européens proposant une gastronomie péruvienne, la Cusqueña est une bière à l’allemande, bonne avec un lomo saltado mais sans autre prétention.
