Bottle, thanks to daknole! Pours clear straw with a slightly lacy head. Aroma of cat, cabbage and corn. The taste is everything the nose would lead you to suspect. Light body and medium carbonation.

12-oz bottle. Thanks, Bitbucket! Thin fizzy pale straw under a quickly fading white fizzy head. Skunky, slightly dank, mildewy nose. Fizzy, rather sharp and watery body. Thick, unpleasant notes of skunkage on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Dakine. First up on my Central America Beer Tour we head to Peru. Pours a really light clear gold with 2 finger white head and decent lacing. Nose is grain, sweet malt and a touch of skunk. Taste is sweet malt and a bit of hops no skunk in the flavor. Very light mouth feel and really clean finish almost no aftertaste. Refreshing beer. For what it is, its not bad especially when its 102 degrees right now.

thanks daknole Move along, nothing to see here. Pale golden color with a medium white head that fizzed out pretty quickly. Very little lacing. The aroma is lightly malty with a kind of sweet biscuit character. Crisp and light bodied and on the malty side. There are some hops but really not enough to keep this interesting for long. The finish is a little soft and watery but there is definitely worse out there. Below average on the whole but better than I was expecting.

Appearance: straw blond color. Little head and white. Aroma: grains, corn mainly. Some citric smells and slight hoopy. Flavour: pale malts, corn and maybe wheat. Some insipid. Slight hoppy final. Mineralized aftertaste. Palate: light body and watery texture. Insipid and weak common south-american lager.

obguthr (6171) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Moderately weak but balanced aroma of honey and grain. Gold color, no head. Grainy taste with noticeable alcohol. Grass finish. Below average, but fairly drinkable.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle, a strong hoppy aroma, grassy with a little bit of fruit. Quite a light mouthfeel, but strongly biter. The grassy hop flavour dominates.

burkekamp (4) - USA - SEP 5, 2007 does not count
Bottle. Had this out at a Peruvian restaurant. Expecting a typical light South/Central American pils, but pleasantly surprised. A bright, crisp easy-drinker, to be sure, but spiked with hints of real German pils, and, possibly, a nice hefeweisen? Wouldnt go out of my way for it, but Id definitely choose it over its competitors.
