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.

inbirraveritas (1332) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 27, 2012
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. Iható.

Panzerfaust (596) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 12, 2012
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.

reebtogi (4754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
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.

EricE (1368) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Shenandoah Throwdown, 2011. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Not much aroma. Watery and bit doughy and malty. Very light hop finish. Not unpleasant.

j12601 (7700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
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.
