2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A middle of the road beer. Straw-colored body with a very thin white head. Cereal, grass, and corn make up the light aroma. Palate is thin and watery, but that’s what I was expecting. Very light and fairly refreshing. Semi-sweet malt and corn with just a bit of hops at the end. No aftertaste. A thirst-quencher, but that’s about it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a thin, wispy, white head.
Smell: Oh, what a cereal nose, accompanied by light floral hints and a faint note of grain.
Taste: Light pale maltiness with a distinctly cereal sweetness. Floral, spicy hops, lightly bitter. Drying, crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Reasonably refreshing -- I suppose that’s the politest thing one can say of this beverage.

Ha. One of those beers you wish you wouldn’t have drank. Off flavors abound with grain and corn and sourness. Glad I don’t live in Peru.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear pale with a small almost non existent head. Smells of corn and malt. First sip tastes of malt and corn with a mild hop presence. Very light bodied and typical of beers from Latin America. Not too bad when I compare it to all the others I have had from Lima.

Bottle, thanks to daknole! Pours clear straw with a slightly lacy head. Aroma of cat, cabbage and corn. The taste is everything the nose would lead you to suspect. Light body and medium carbonation.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
12-oz bottle. Thanks, Bitbucket! Thin fizzy pale straw under a quickly fading white fizzy head. Skunky, slightly dank, mildewy nose. Fizzy, rather sharp and watery body. Thick, unpleasant notes of skunkage on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

A friend brought this back for me on a recent trip to Peru. Pours bright golden, little white head. aroma is of grain, wheat and pears. Sort of citrusy and a little salty. your typical foreign pale lager. Thanks Alyssa!! :)
