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.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo o lekkim orzezwiajacym smaku, slodowe i lekko rozwodnione co pasuje do klimatu w Peru. Slomkowa i zlocista barwa ze spora iloscia babelkow. Sztucznie nagazowane, ale za to piana przyzwoicie spora sniezna, ale srednio sie utrzymuje nad powierzchnia piwa.

Compra: Carrefour Ingesta: Viendo Juego de Tronos 5x01 Opinion: Quizas es que tenia bajas las expectativas, pero me ha sorprendido gratamente. Con sabor peculiar pese a ser una pilsen aunque olor desagradable. Desde luego muy superior a las tipicas cervezas españolas

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a clear golden yellow color with some visible carbonation. The head is small and it fades out quickly leaving only a few bubbles at the edge of the glass. Smell: Not much going on here. It has the basic light cereal and grassy/straw like hop notes. Taste / Palate: The flavor is of pale malt, hay like notes and light cereal grain with mild bitterness from the hops. The feel is light and easy drinking with average carbonation.

caribou43 (588) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2015 Es una cerveza banal. Sin embargo hay pocas opciones en Perú y la tomo pero sin estar feliz de tomar algo bueno. No tiene sabor, ni cebada, ni lúpulo. Hay unas cervezas artesanales pero la gente no tiene recursos para comprar esas cervezas.

Poor pale lager with nothing interesting. Aroma is ligtly malty. Taste is soft, poor and boring. To forget.
