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.

dansac (93) - Loa Angeles, Alabama, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Garbage, adjunct lager. Overly carbonated, some hops, and relatively dry. Some fading hop character. Otherwise flavorless, boring.

Erzengel (2568) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
33cl bottle. Pale golden in the glass, slightly malty nose. The beer starts quite grainy, slightly bitter. The mainpart is a bit sharp, slightly unround, slightly metallic. The aftertaste is strange, sharp, unround, malty but not nice, very dry.
Strange beer - not mine! --> 4/7/4/4

McTapps (3959) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear yellow-golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of bitter, metallichops, grass, straw and grapefruit. Below average, but drinkable.

Cerveja fraca sem aroma e sem amargor. Sabor simples lembrando as cervejas comuns brasileiras. Nao recomendo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Valito (30) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2013
Botella 33cl. En mi casa. Cerveza bastante floja, poco sabor, olor y color. Solamente refresca, eso si... si se toma fría.

Sem aroma, sem gosto e sem presença. Para refrescar apenas. Pelo menos nao senti gostos desagradáveis na degustação. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella de 330ml. Copa Pokal. Color dorado y apariencia transparente. Corona fugaz y blanca que deja algo de encaje. Aromas florales y de levadura con leves olores sulfurosos y vegetales. Entrada granulada chispeante seguida por una reseca sensación de arroz. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación alta. Textura aguada. Amargor floral limpio y final reseco. Evitar !! 330ml bottle. Pokal glass. Golden color, crystal clear appearance. White & brief crown leaves some lacing. Floral & yeasty aromas & slight sulphur & cabbage odors. Grainy & crispy at first followed by dried rice sensation. Light body. High carbonation. Watery texture. Clean floral bitterness. Dried finish. Avoid !!

Mcbertola (103) - BRAZIL - OCT 5, 2013
Cerveja pilsen, parecida com as demais peruanas. No aroma se percebe o cheiro quase inodoro de uma pilsen. Sabor com pouco amargor, leve e fraca. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
