Brewed since 1921, Cristal is Peruís 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.

Smells like rice, looks like P**s. Doesnít taste much better. I donít see this in my future again. Nice to try something, but this really sucked.

Poured a crystal clear yellow golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that held a while before diminishing fairly quickly. Laced as a few streaks. Carbonation initially very high with lots of small sized bubbles but by time I was midway through the glass the carbonation had decreased to low. Aroma slightly of malt typical of a lager. Taste of slight sweetness and a no real hops bitterness. Light body becoming watery. Crisp refreshing bit metallic bland.

Once again a p**sy Lager with some malt and even a bit rice in the aroma. Simple, watery. Could have been alcoholized soda instead.

dansac (99) - 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 (2803) - 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

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
