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.

Fresh 12 oz. can thanks jcwattsrugger for the share! Crystal clear gold, piss color. Aroma is lager yeast, skunky and light corn. Flavor is mostly the same as the aroma. Skunky yeast is not overwhelming. Mostly corn and grain in a light watery body. Not offensive.

From a can thanks to jcwattsrugger. Yellow pour with white foamy head. Definite malt dough nose with light grassy hops. Smooth and light body. The taste has a malt sweetness with a mild bitter finish.

12oz bottle pours a clear gold with some clumpy white head. You get the nose from way back and you know it well, metal, lemon, cheap stale malt, trashy. Flavor follows right along, heavy fake lemon, metal, some root veg, a bit of a sour note to it. Spritzy finish. Trashy.

ruigo (2042) - PORTUGAL - MAR 14, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Hay and malt in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light bitter. Overall, another lager.

630 ml bottle - Pale appearance, gassy taste and sickly palate. It's not particularly enjoyable cold or at room temp.

Had in a bottle in Peru...a few times. This beer is readily available in Peru. I am impressed that with all of the offerings I have had that came from a green bottle, none were skunked. Macro lager type beer. Nothing overly complex or interesting, but really refreshing, easy drinking, and pairs well with a beach and ceviche in Paracas.

Es una lager clásica y industrial. Me parece que ha mejorado un poco con el sabor de lúpulo. Hay este lado dulce entre malta y maiz, pero se queda un producto para el gran público y dudo que los productos sean de buena calidad.
