Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small white head. Malty aroma, some grassy notes in there too. Taste starts with a very slight sweetness, followed by nice bitterness. Crisp and refreshing, slightly metallic in theaftertaste. Not that bad actually. Pretty drinkable. Especially ice cold.

På fat. Jag minns ärligt talat inte hur den doftade, hur den smakade. Det var en klar guldfärgad öl med ett stort vitt skum och det smakade lager-öl. Inget märkvärdigt, inga minnesbilder, bara ännu en i raden av trista öl som lika gärna kunde ha låtits bli, eller ersatts av ett glas rött exempelvis.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle served in a small chalice.
A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a small white head. Low retention an few lacing left
S: Sweet on the nose. Quite corny with far notes of hops. Lager yeasts
T: Sweet corn upfront. Really weak. Watery with a faint carbonation. Adjunct malts giving terrible caraboard notes. Very mild bitterness in the end. In overall, a dry mouth sensation
M: Light watery body and medium carbonation. Malty and cardboard aftertaste
O: Please avoid it. One of the worst ones I’ve ever had

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Country tick time! From Peru to Spain to France... my bottle doesn’t carry the Premium name but is still 5% and called Cristal (with the same EAN barcode). Cerveza de Los Andes. Pours a pale golden body with okay head, I have seen worse. Almost aroma-less, bit cardboard, very fine dry grass (hop?) but mostly soft-sweet white bread malts. Hugely boring, of course, but I’ve had worse country ticks. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Each country seems to have its national bland lager, and this is the one from Peru. It has a stable, snow white head and a deep golden blonde colour, cristal clear as the name suggests. Simple and neutral aroma, consisting of sweetish pale malts and some grassy hops but not much else. Neutral taste, minerals, light sweetish pale malts, very light grassy hops in the finish but no actual bitterness. Very bland but correct, nothing really off-putting.

What a plain beer, no aroma, no flavor, no head. A waste of time and money. The typical macro industrial adjunct lager for the ignorant masses.
