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.

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.

ExpendableHero (854) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2011
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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 5, 2011
1.1L shared with friends on multiple occasions at Norton’s Rat Tavern on Plaza de Armas in Cusco. The pour is a clear yellow with a dense, rocky, white head. Small retention and mild lacing. Nose is doughy with orange. Taste is blood iron metallic, sharp, salt and vinegar thing going on. Very strange. Have another can on deck for a re-rate. 6/28/11 5/3/3/2/8=2.1

0.33 l can at Petalax Beer Festival 2010. Pale golden color. The aromas and flavors of apple, grain porridge and glue. Low maltiness, this is just a fizzy yellow drink.
