Bottle from Supermarket in Lima. Amber body with okay head. Nose is matly and skunky. Taste is similar of grains and malts and skunkiness. Well-balanced. Pretty good.

Drinking this from a 630ml bottle in the peruvian jungle now. Its great for killing thirst, its notting spesial, but then again its a pilsner/lager, its meant to be boring. Quite refreshing but notting to write home about. Cheers

Hace honor a su estilo, al marcar el punto de amargor caracteristico de las pilsen alemanas tanto en aroma como en boca (en menor medida). Por lo demas caracteristicas tipicas en cuanto a color y espuma, y buen equilibrio dulce y amargo, con adecuada carbonatacion. Se bebe bien.

Iphonephan (5001) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
From a 33 cl bottle deep in the Amazon jungle of Peru. Pours a clear hold with a thick white head. Aroma of white bread. Flavors of foamy nothingness.

mzaar (2291) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2014
Flaska. Klar guldfärgad med stort vitt skum. En högst ordinär lager, som ändå lutar mer åt rätt mängd maltsötma, vilket i min bok alltid uppskattas. Lättdrucken och inte alls oäven.

Rodriguez (322) - Quito, ECUADOR - SEP 25, 2014
Typical adjunct lager, low aroma, low flavor, metallic, no good retention, lot of carbonation, a bad beer, just fine for a very hot day if there are no other options

KeefOz (1223) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
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.
