Bottle at Pio Pio for dinner last night. I was light or dark I chose dark and this came out. What’s dark about it? Anyways pours sparkling amber. Tastes of grains, malt, light bitterness. Not too bad for what it is

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.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Clear pale golden color. Smells of stale malts, a little citrus, yeast and light hops. Light palate. Flavor is of malts, hops and yeast. Your typical pale lager. Bleh.

An alright pilsner. About what you’d expect from a basic South American lager. A better than average malt sweetness. Tried with Kent and Nick in Lisbon in 2014.

AshtonMcCobb (2502) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2014
33cl bottle thanks to Lynn. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - sweet malt and nuts. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and unfortunately quite a sweet finish. Overall - if a session strength lager doesn’t refresh what is the point?

Suave, agradable pero totalmente olvidable. Una buena cerveza para los que le gustan suave en insípida, pero no una que repetiría ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
