eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml twist off bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a small fizzy bubbled white head. Low retention and only few lacings left S: Sweet malts, adjunct malts (mainly corn), Lager yeasts and some almost imperceptible notes of hops in the end T: As the nose. Sweet upfront. Sweet caramel malts, adjunct malts, bready Lager yeasts, very ligh bitterness in the end. In overall a slightly sweet beer with a strange faint hoppy bitterness M: Very light and watery body and medium to low carbonation. Aftertaste is a bit annoying, a mix of cardboard and weird bitterness (I’m asking myself what type of hops do they used here...) O: Average drinkability. A bit annoying, actually. A beer that I won’t try again... [ BA Review @ 9/25/2012 ]

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
Flaska. Klar guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av gräs, malt samt viss örtighet. En lager i mängden.

SlackerMads (1651) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow with a medium sized good lasting white head. Sulphur, cardboard, cornflakes, light wort. Medium/light body, watery texture, light sweet finish. Turns out the gold of the Inkas is just a bland lager. Would like to try the water, though.

James_Dog (8) - Herzogenbuchsee, SWITZERLAND - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
Bottle @ home. Easy drinking lager, no head, light brown color. Nice alcohol balance, fresh malt, chicken broth. Nothing special good to drink on a summer day.

Bottle from Sainsburys Team Valley. Standard lager really - not a bad example for a mass produced one

Simply the best, smoothest, beer I have ever tasted. Just the right amount of alcohol, tastes like real beer and not some light beer that’s basically water with a barely detectable beer flavor. Cusqueña has a true beer flavor without too much "bite" and without the heavy quality of some of the darker beers I’ve had.

YantarCoast (131) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from Sainsbury's. Pours gold with a small head. Grainy taste. Overall it's just another pale lager. But at least it's a tick for Peru!

(Flasche) Es hat eine hellgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, karamellig, getreidig und hat so etwas von Gummibären treffen auf Putzmittel oder dem Gewürz-Met vom Weihnachtsbasar(aber negativ). Der Geschmack ist Wasser mit sirupartigem Mundgefühl, einer leichten Süße und einem chemischen Abgang. Auf der Zungenspitze kommt auch mal ne Alphasäure vorbei. Jetzt nach dem trinken hab ich ein moosiges Aroma im Rachenraum. Fazit, riecht sehr komisch->unangenehm und schmeckt nach garnichts.
