2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, october 08. Clear, golden color with fizzy carbonatation and a small, disappearing white head. Flavor is not that ba for a pale lager. Chilled, but with an almost perceptible malt backbone and decent bittersweetness. A bit of skunk and a salty finish. Aroma is a bit of skunk and the faintest touch of herbal hopiness. Palate is a little bit fuller than most pale lagers, firm too. Almost a bit of flavor while remaining refreshing. King among leppers.

I just returned from Peru and had a number of these on my trip. It doesn’t have a lot of flavor or body, but is easy enough to drink. It is rather booring to drunk, but other than that I have no real complaints.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light gold body with six to seven lazy, disinterested bubbles floating around.
Smell: Pale malts with some light cereal notes.
Taste: Palt maltiness, a touch cereal, but not overly sweet. Not much in the way of hop character. More of the same till the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A good beer? Heavens, no! It’s weak and watery. But at least there are no foul or offensive flavors running loose in here. I guess that’s a fair trade.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a very light pale color with a small almost non existent head. Smells of corn and not much malt. First sip is tad bitter with a slight hop presence but not much flavor. Very light bodied with average carbonation. Very typical for beers from South America. Just enough flavor to be called a “beer”.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Sample at September 12, 2008 Beer Club Meeting) This looks as if it initially poured a deeper color, almost orange, then lightened as its small head bubbled away into the glass. Its smell reminds me of a German brewery. Its taste... I hear someone say, "rusty coins". Great... now I taste rusty coins. It does have a metallic bite to it, but not overly so. This one is malty for a Latin American lager. Sweet, too. I do like this. The tongue swells a little at the aftertaste. This is a welcomed change from the commom skunky Latin American pale lager.

Bottle. Pours dark straw with 2-finger splotchy white head. Nose is grainy pale malt and hopcitrus. Tastes grainy pale malty, with some fruit and hopcitric notes. Gets a bit tart late and loses some flavor, but all in all not too bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Yep it’s a pale lager from Peru. It’s not bad but it’s most redeeming quality is that it provides me the opportunity to mark Peru off my list of countries.
