hmmmmm, another pale lager, except this one is from Peru. Grabbin a bottle opener. Pourin into my favorite taster, a 20 oz british "Nonic" glass. Pours a very standard pale yellow, with a very friendly looking very stable head of tiny pure white bubbles. carbonation seems to be fairly high. Aroma, well from about a foot away it smells very VERY much of co2, but I will now bring it to my nose. metalic malt is dominant, not very intresting. Palat is thin and a little sandy. the taste is pretty awful. metaicly sweet with a heavy dose of skunk. no undertones, no plesantness, just awful. Aftertaste is sickley sweet. Drain pour. Bassed on the other ratings, I’m thinkin mabby mine is spoiled. Cheers

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2015
Flaske fra Waitrose, Finchly, delt med Steven: klar gylden med svært kort skum. Maltdrevet aroma og smak med ok munnfylde men heller intetsigende uttrykk. Stilig Incadesign på flasken, ellers helt forglemmelig.

LazyPyro (175) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
620ml bottle. Medium golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is not particularly strong, grainy, maybe corn. Moderately sweet malt in the flavour. Bit of a watery feel to it, and soft carbonation. Nothing special.

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 (634) - 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.
