hmmmmm, another pale lager, except this one is from Peru. Grabbin a bottle opener. Pourin into my favorite taster, a 20 oz british "Nonic" glass. Pours a very standard pale yellow, with a very friendly looking very stable head of tiny pure white bubbles. carbonation seems to be fairly high. Aroma, well from about a foot away it smells very VERY much of co2, but I will now bring it to my nose. metalic malt is dominant, not very intresting. Palat is thin and a little sandy. the taste is pretty awful. metaicly sweet with a heavy dose of skunk. no undertones, no plesantness, just awful. Aftertaste is sickley sweet. Drain pour. Bassed on the other ratings, I’m thinkin mabby mine is spoiled. Cheers

Very nice to drink after a long walk in Cusco. Good taste, watery. Not bad.

Drank A LOT of this badboy while I was in Peru. Solid South American lager. Easy to drink but not a ton happening here

Zakupene v obchodiku zaujimave potraviny. Klasicka vyrazne pivova vona. Chut nicim zvlastna. Jemne horkasta.

Bottle. Clear golden body with a small white head. Weak grainy aroma with hint of metal. Flavor is medium sweet grain and slightly harsh with some unpleasant metal. Thin and watery body, short aftertaste with harsh metal. Not very nice at all.

Bottle in Arequipa, Peru. Regular lager type beer, malty, not bad after endless hours in a bus

massingasetta (781) - München, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017
A lager, some would say an International Lager from Peru. I like this beer for its great drinkability and freshness, but must admit that it lacks a strong zest of bitterness or refinement.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 Bottle. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, corn, metallic notes and slight butter. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some corn,malt and herbs. Medium body, average carbonation.

Piepenhenrich (1229) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Reasonable Lager, but like it’s peers, watery in taste, nothing to stand out with.

BeardedAvenger (1118) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle from Amathus Soho. Quite a gassy basement aroma, woth floral edge. Golden. Bubbly. Frothy white head. Sweet but has a bit of a bite to it. Not saccharine. Light bodies. Thin. Fizzu carb. Abrupt finish. Adequate longer. Doesn’t have the industrial qualities that would put me right off.

dunklermessias (330) - GERMANY - AUG 7, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours with a bright golden color and a small white head. Aromas of cereals, malts and some caramel-sweetness. Quite sweet taste of caramel or honey, also some malty notes.
