Poured a crystal clear amber with a 5mm white foamy head that diminished quickly to a collar. Laced OK. Carbonation moderate and coarse. Aroma subtle of malts and sweet grain. Taste of sweet grain and malt and no obvious bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp, refreshing but bland. More a lager than a pilsner.

Yellow body. Bottle in Amazon jungle. Has a kind of effervescence, but overall pretty dull.

Oh lord, how to explain this. I lived in Peru until my mid twenties, and have drank this more times than any craft beer of my liking. And this is partly why I am happy not to be there anymore. It is not that craft beer is only so very good. It is. But it is also that it is so much better than this mouthful of urine that it makes you feel like you’ve come a long way. This is urine soda. Avoid at all costs.

Cerveja estilo pilsen. Muita parecida com as brasileiras. Dourada clara, espuma bem branca e fraca. Amargor estilo pilsen, mas pouco marcante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cerveja bem leve, sem presença e sem qualquer destaque no sabor. Mesma linha das american lagers para ser consumida em grandes quantidades. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

310ml bottle. Straw yellow on the pour with a good sized, slowly fading white head and a mild effervescence. Grain and corn as you might expect with a certain skunkiness coming through as well as grassy hops. Some lemon, mostly on the nose, too, Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a enduring, dryish hoppy end. Not terrible, certainly given how widespread it is in Peru. That being said, if you look hard enough there are better offerings out there it’s a just they’re few and far between...

Minderbinder (1691) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle 310ml. Pours very clear blond with medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, corn, skunk. Taste is of malt, corn, weird stuff, missplaced acidity, bitterness. Palate: Ligth body. Overall: Very bad. I’d drink many generic beer before this one. Near-gross level.

12 oz bottle brought back from Peru. Smells skunky, but actually tastes alright. Pretty light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (2602) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2012
35,5cl can. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Lightly malty aroma with cereals, hints of cooked vegetables and possibly traces of hops. Sweet and grainy with a hint of souness and a very light bitterness in the finish. A bit watery with a very short aftertaste. Drinkable, but preferably when it’s hot... [Gift from my dad - thanks!]
