COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed since 1921, Cristal is Peru’s No. 1 selling beer, combining a light-bodied liquid with strong Andean imagery. It has been the No. 1 selling U.S. import from South America over the last eight years, primarily appealing to the approximately one million Peruvian consumers in the U.S.

massingasetta (599) - München, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
This is not a bad international lager, yet not bad means it is an average beer in general. Cristal is really fresh and the aftertaste is quite acceptable. A good national beer.

thepatrickman (616) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle at the MFA in Boston. Pretty typical macro lager, though a little maltier than Bud or Coors. Malt sweetness, a bit of sulfur, and not much else.

Msdrbeat (295) - Darnestown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottled. Smells like a typical macro lager. Not better or worse than Corona to be honest.

olio (8810) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a small white head. Starchy, hay aroma with mild fruit notes. Flavor corn, hay, subtle pale malt notes and grass. Simple, no off-flavors, watery. Pretty much what you would expect.

hauxe (291) - Butzbach, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2015
Rated from old notes. Weak with no body and not much alcoholic presence. A decent thirst quencher, but otherwise disappointing.
