Clear golden with finger of head. Actually I was surprized at the spicy malt presence on both smell and taste. There was a lingering honey malt quality which yeilded an intriguing clovey-ness. To be sure my expectations were low, but this brew had flavor and character than I had not antcipated. That said, its really not going to be worth returning to but it is quite good for what it is.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 I don’t care what anyone says, I like this beer, simply because I am not a Hop Head- I am a Malt Head, if they have those. This Lager is maltier than any other I have had, in fact, it’s almost Malta (which Cusqueña also makes). While Hops make a beer more exciting, the malt in here makes it more pleasant.

Gold pour, small white head. Aroma is pure corn and malt. No real body, sweet corn flavor and light malts. Not overly carbonated which makes it relatively smooth, but not worth drinking again.

At last, a bottle of lager from Peru! Slightly bready aroma. A little rubber, some sourness, all together another nasty exotic lager. tick

Had from the bottle that was purchased in Monterrey, Mexico. It pours a clear yellow with a nice fluffy head. It smells of corn and malt with a slight hint of hops. It is smooth but earthy and malty and not generally pleasing. I imagine on a hot day it would be OK.

The bottle I got from the store was much cooler than the one pictured on the right. The aroma is standard for the type: a mix of malts, hops, grass, adjuncts. Common straw color with white head, strong carbonation. Flavor is corn, sweet malts, salt, cereal, light hops. The finish has a light hoppiness which is reasonably ok. Somewhat salty throughout. (Must be the water they use). In a disparaged beer category, this one is not bad for the type.

pale gold body and white head. grainy and herbs aroma. sweet and little salty in the flavor. watery and refraishing. Not bad for a south-american beer.

Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aromas of hops, grains, and a touch of something fruity. Flavor has a nice hop action going for it, with a cheerios like taste.
