Lincs translation: Beer of marked color and smooth and slightly fruity flavor that combines with a medium bitterness and pleasant body. The water used for brewing recalls that of one of the European cities with a long brewing tradition.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3058) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle in Trujillo, just your average macro lager with a taste of mostly corn on a fizzy yellow body. Ok but drink it cold.

Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 9, 2012
620 ml bottle, gift from Perú (Thanks Eddie). This beer has a typical South American pale lager color, clear, translucent and lifeless. Head is big and white but disappears as fast as it grows. The aroma of weak malts lets the notes of corn syrup and grains. Taste is slightly better with a faint herbal bitterness giving it an edge over other South American macro swill, but not very much. Very, and it’s difficult to stress it enough, VERY light, but not offensive. Body is minimal, finish is evanescent, lively carbonated. The watery texture is in accordance to the overall blandness. I’m still waiting for a great Peruvian beer.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, courtesy of the inimitable GT. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big grain and sweet corn. Grainy and full of corn. Medium bodied and sweet. Not as good as the other Peruvian can.

GT2 (9347) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
650mL at Shenandoah Throwdown. The pour is clear, light yellow. Small candy nose. Mealy apple and small metals in the body. Not very good. Very inferior to Pilsen Callao. Powdery, sweet palate.

Derek881 (1079) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUL 6, 2011
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink in Cusco. The beer had a very clear gold color with a quite big foamy white head that had light cling but good retention. The aroma was very grassy and hoppy with some straw and a bit of malt. The taste was quite bitter and had a strong grainy and grassy flavor without much else. It was average in carbonation and fizz, but fairly thin and light in the mouth with a dry finish.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Looks okay, but otherwise just a typical south american pilsner. Very grainy flavor, little hop presence, and flat, cardboard finish.

dnstone (2364) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Just another fizzy yellow pilsner lager. Tastes like cardboard as you could expect.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 14, 2009
Just another lager, not too dry and a little sweet and creamy, with sandy afterfeeling.
