This is another Peruvian bland beer. Looks and tastes pretty much like any other countries mass-produced crappy brew. Oh well.

Smells vaguely like an empty glass that had a sweet south american lager in it within the last month. Clear yellow color. fast fading head. Water with some drops of sugary malt drops in it. Amazing how they made a Dortmunder EXACTLY like the other pale lagers fromt he region. Might even make one think it was a pale lager.

It is a beer to go with some peruvian dishes. It goes good with it. It goes very watery if you leave it in your glass for a while. I will say it is not too week or strong...a medium level.

I (unfairly) braced myself for the worst, but was surprized by the drinkability of this Dortmunder. Light gold with a short-lived slender head, it’s got a sweet grassy aroma with a touch of herbal hopping. The flavor is sweet malt, mayhaps a bit of corn, and finishes on a sweet note with a dash of hop bitterness. A summer thirst quencher.

(bottle) Poured a golden yellow. Slight hoppiness and not a bad thirst quencher for plain beer.

Clear-yellow body with a fine, white head. Smells "so fresh and so clean" ala Andre 3000. Taste is same, with clean malt and fresh, floral hops. Pretty good for a cheap lager, as it escapes from being skunky due to its freshness. But it does not escape from being watery and malt flavor is a little ricey. Had this out of a bottle at a Peruvian restaurant to wash down chicken, and yucca slathered with green chili sauce. For this purpose, the beer is stellar for the occasion. Otherwise, its no better than a Miller or Bud. Why do people from warm climates always make sucky beer (aside from californians)?

Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty, grainy and fruity, with a touch of corn. A light bodied dort/helles style lager. Mild malts, touch of corn. Mild slightly spicy hops. Crisp. Light and refreshing. Very mild flavor, and somewhat watery. Yet it does have a nice dry finish. This beer falls into the category of “its OK, but there is nothing there” Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
