Probably the best of Peru’s pale lagers, it’s got a slight grainy nose, a cool bottle too, with the incan stonework and such. So there’s that.

Beer5000 (6674) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2017
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.

loscovar (648) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle in Arequipa, Peru. Regular lager type beer, malty, not bad after endless hours in a bus

massingasetta (761) - 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.

Geokkjer (7643) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
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.

2.2
Piepenhenrich (1170) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Reasonable Lager, but like it’s peers, watery in taste, nothing to stand out with.

2.2
BeardedAvenger (1027) - 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 (280) - 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.

adamnowek (3170) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2017
Bottle from a trade with CH-303. Thanks! Colour is bright golden with only slightly visible carbonation. No head. Aroma is corn and some caramel. Taste is quite sweet, with banana, apple, and malt. Texture is somewhat heavy and sticky.

luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2017
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.

2.3
MarcoDL (5295) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2017
Can at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of pale malt and water. Taste has malt and nothing more. Watery, but yeah well, what do you expect.
