From the bottle, yellow and active with an initially big pile of foam that quickly died on me. Thereís a nice lemony aroma, but the flavor is strictly starchy and weak. Unimpressed.

Pale gold in color with a yeasty steel aroma. like it came out of a can. I am drinking the bottle version by the way. Possesses the typical profile for itís genre yet not reaching the title of "Top in itís class" by any means. The finish is chalky and bitter. I think Iíll have a Coors please.

Strong aroma and taste of what I think is corn. Really fizzy with a mild crispness. Itís a typical "international lager" clone - they all taste pretty much the same and every third world countryís got at least one (or several). I canít say Iím disappointed as I wasnít expecting much.

Bottle--Suprising sweet taste in comparisions to what I though was another pilsner. A slight aroma of mostly corn. The color was a bright yellow with small carbonated head that remained through the drink. Better than I expected, it was perfect with a pork steak mojito.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 Light gold body with a white head. The aroma is very light with some potatoes and dog hair. The taste has a very sweet sense of carrots along with sweet potatoes. There is also corn. One of the sweetest I have had in the style.

Ok, nothing spectacular. A fairly bland pilsner, not much head or flavor, certainly no aroma. Most similar to the beverage known as water. A slight mustiness and maybe a little hint of grain but thatís it.

Pour is a very light yellow with a small white head. Aroma has a slight burnt quality but nothing else shows up after that. Flavor is also very light with hints of grain and corn. Nothing really great but on the other hand this tastes and smells like nothing so you could prob drink alot of this in Peru.

pretty decent pilsner. I had no idea Peru exported beer. Refreshing, holds up in flavor, not chemical or fake tasting like so many American beers

12 oz bottle - Pours golden with a short white head that dissipates quick. Shame on me for thinking a bottle that said Pilsen on it would be a pilsener. Aromas of grass and light grains. Flavor is grass, sweet corn, light grains. Palate is light but not very carbonated and not too crisp and clean either. This tastes much more like a pale lager than a pilsener or a helles to me. Whatever type it is it isnít very good..
