Looking for some beauty in life? The perfectly formed slopes of Nevado Alpamayo have left the world in awe of Peru’s natural grandeur. Inspired by the sun setting over the Andes, the Alpamayo Amber Ale is red in color and rich in malted barley perfectly balanced with the sharp taste of hops. Enjoy a touch of that same splendor in your glass.

Poured a hazy, dark amber/copper with a small quickly dissipating head. Nice sweet malt aroma. The taste is a little watery and semi-sweet, not well-balanced. A very average beer.

330mL bottle, pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Nose brings out boiled vegetables and light grainy notes. Flavour is dry and grainy, with dry bready malts and grains. Pretty boring but inoffensive. Meh.

Bottle shared with northropfrye in Cusco, Peru. Semi-sweet and tasty. This was really nice for an amber ale.

Better than average amber ale. Reddish body white head. Sweet maltiness but pretty subtle and a touch of hops. Not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Aroma suave un poco dulce (acaramelado), cuerpo medio con muy poco white head, sabor un toque dulce y tostado con un final un poco amargo. Propongo no tomarla con alimentos amargos o acidos ya que elevan el amargor de esta cerveza distorsionando su sabor.

Decent amber ale, whilst tame. Hint of caramel, some bitterness. Pleasant as not too watery, however a slight sourness.

Bottle (330 ml). Huge thanks to Minderbinder for bringing this back to me directly from the source! Clear amber with a medium quickly diminishing off-white head and no lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, light herbal notes and light yeast. Taste is slightly sweet with malt, caramel and light herbal notes. Light to medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Decent Amber Ale, especially considering it’s from Peru. Could use a little more complexity.

On tap at Trivio, Huaraz. (5,9%) Pours amber with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel. Taste is of malt, bitter. Palate: Ligth body. Overall: Good. A tad generic. Not bad.

LBarouf (114) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
330 ml bottle Aroma: pronounced cereal aroma, roasted nuts and hints of coffee and smoke. Appearance: a hazy copper robe with a thin white neck. Taste: sweet and feels round in mouth with umami very present. Palate: Medium body, creamy and average carbonation. Short finish on a sweet, caramel notes. Overall, a nice quiet beer, with a sneaky punch. The cereal aroma omnipresent, is a nice surprise.
