Pours golden corn haze reminiscant of a Kevin Costner film. But unlike ol Kevin, this isn’t too bad. Its tolerable and has a bit of fizz to it. Watery by definition but definately not water world. thank feckin heyzeus. Taste is of malty corn, piled high with some lima-beans. more like a heiny than anything else. Listening to some charango, a native peruvian instrument.

Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a frothy white head that settles quickly. Bready aroma with some citrus hints. Flavor of an american macro (i.e. nothing much) maybe a hint of spices. Light, dry, and crisp. Better than nothing down here. Enjoyed this cervesa with my new amigos at the Peruvian Air Forces 6th Air Group Officers Club in Chiclayo. Salud!

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 From a 12 oz. brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, served in a clear restaurant glass. Poured a clear pale pilsener golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing. Had a clean nose overall, a sweet pilsener maltiness, lightly bready and floral, subtle spicy hoppiness. Moderate carbonation overall, crisp, dry and smooth, more light bodied mouthfeel than medium bodied. Dry, crisp, but in the end, average bland pilsener tasting, dry sweet, slightly sugary, pale malts, a soft spicy, floral hop bitterness and a dry bready finish with light metallic malt flavor lingering in the palate, not bad, but average drinkability when compared to other pilseners. Had this for dinner tonight at South American theme restaurant, did go well with different plates I tried.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Wines, Downers Grove. Despite my feeling about the Heinie-wannabes of countries without beer traditions, I’ll try ’em anyway, just to pop the cap on a new land. Now listing this as a Dortmunder means I could hold this to a higher standard than the usual pale lager… Somewhat hoppy smell at first, but then a bit of corn sugar. Head rises short, then dwindles quickly. Usual pale yellow color. I thinkthere’s a bit of Dortmunder character, but perhaps it’s just because I’m looking for it there. Taste is relatively clean, a slight touch of pilsner malt. But again, accompanied by corn adjunct. Specific bitterness hard to find. I didn’t expect much, and that’s what I got.

The aroma is light but I do detect a cereal type of malt and a hint of herbal hops that are not unlike mint. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is light also but it’s not offensive. Basically its just malt with a tiny bit of bitterness in the finish. The palate is thin. Even though it didn’t knock my socks off, it’s better than I was expecting.

This was an interesting light lager. It was different but it was not excellent. I guess it was ok.
