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

Bottle in Lima. Thin white bubbles. A shade darker gold, very clear. Skunky, perfumey corn. Fairly rich "premium" flavor, a bit heavy malt. Not the most refreshing body, with a lighter carbonation. Sweet finish.

hawthorne00 (3754) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle. Amber to gold with a white head. Aroma of crackers, corn, some lemon. Watery. Very bland with a little cardboard, caramel, faint bitterness that’s even more faintly grassy. Pretty standard fare - dull but no disaster.

jjgmd (2098) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle, with Josh and Audrie, at dinner in Santiago, Chile at D’leite....pours a clear golden color with an ephemeral small white head. Nose is grainy and bland. Taste , or more to the point there is no taste, bland and watery. Must be the Corona or Bud of Peru...would have happier with a coke ! Quaff Score 2 / 10

12 oz bottle from Nazca Mochica Restaurant in Dupont Circle,Washington, D.C. Cost was $8.00 Tasted rather crisp and very clean. Maybe a bit on the weak side but went well with the cuisine.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Aroma - is pretty straightforward, a combination of toasty and caramel malt. Appearance - the body is a slightly hazed, light amber. The head is white and around 1/2" and settles slowly. Taste - has slight toast, corn, and caramel malt flavor. Hops are pretty muted, but there is some grass hop deep in there. Palate - medium body, smooth texture, average carbonation, and a brief sweet finish.

Bottle from Hökarängens cericheria. Big and lasting white head over a clear solid golden color. Big malty aroma with a tiny vegetables tuch. Sweet malty taste with a low bitterness.
