El aroma es algo ácido, astringente. De color amarillo pálido, clara, ligera y con espuma blanca muy poco duradera. En el sabor solo se siente algo de amargor.

I had one of these at an open air restaurant in a Peruvian border town. It was a 20 oz bomber served very cold in a chilled glass. It was a great complement to the food. For a South American beer it was quite good.

Élénken pezsgő, tükrösen aranyszínű sör, közepes méretű fehér habbal a tetején.
Illata és sallangmentes aromája kenyeret idézően malátás, melyet füves komló kísér.
Közepesen száraz befejezése rövid és fanyar.

630 ml bottle, gift from Perú (Thanks Eddie). Pours clear gold and sparkling with a medium white bubbly head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is not very enticing, with faint malts, adjuncts (rice and corn) and boiled vegetables. I can’t believe they used hops for this brew at all. Taste of basically nothing at all. It has notes of water, lettuce, water and grass. This beer has almost no bitterness. I realize it’s a commercial Peruvian pale lager but it doesn’t need to be this flavorless. Light body, lively carbonation, watery finish. Without being a good beer by any means, Trujillo Pilsen is better and less offensive.

330ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild malts and grassy hops. Taste is light malty sweet with a moderate hoppy bitter finish. A fairly clean finish and no off tastes. An average pilsener style beer.

19/09/2011 33cl. bottle @ Paul and Leo’s place (2011-452)
Clear yellow beer, aery white head, unstable and non adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts and corn, dirty hop aroma, bit of sewer. MF: good carbon, light body, watery texture. Taste: pretty sweet malty start, some carbon sour, bit grassy. Aftertaste: lemonade touches with a very cheap bit of hops. Bleh.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, courtesy of the illustrious GT. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp grain, sweet and grainy. Somewhat empty, sweet grain. Crisp and grainy. Inoffensive, but not much going on. Rather immemorable.

Shenandoah Throwdown. 12oz can, thanks GT2. Crystal clear straw body, medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light peach. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel/bread, light peach. Soft light body. Utterly bland, undoubtedly what was intended.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
A very common beer in Peru. Swill. Clear golden beer with a thin, white head. Grainy aromas, and not much else. Tastes skunked, bitter, and full of corn mash. Pretty gross overall, decent ABV makes it a beer to drink for the sole purpose of getting drunk. Avoid if possible, then grab a Cusquena instead.
