Inexpensive, typical Latin American lager. Cheap malts and no flavor, not good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I poured this beer from the generous 1.1 L bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a light, clear gold color with many rising bubbles and a good-sized creamy and bubbly white head that had solid retention and good cling. The aroma was mostly a light hop mix featuring grass, grain, and some barley scents. The flavor of the beer was fairly bitter and slightly grainy with hops, but did not have any great distinctions. It had a light mouthfeel without much carbonation and was fairly thin and not that lively.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355mL found in Lima, Peru. Easy to find singles of this at the two grocery stores right off Calle Larco in Miraflores: Metro and Vivanda (more like Whole Foods).
Zenda pours a clear yellow with a dense, white head. Nice retention with suddy lace. Nose is typical macro lager with corn, cereal, sugar water, and a "sting" of lemon and light metal. Taste is soapy, metallic, doughy, lemon, full biscuit. Gets a bit metallic and bland as it warms. Palate is watery- more akin to Perrier than beer. Blood iron comes through. Less metallic than Cristal but lacks a good aroma. Pretty poor.

Just another light lager. Clear golden in color, white head. Nothing sets it apart to me from the other Peruvian light lagers.

Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, metal, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, metal, and malt, leading to a dry metallic finish
