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.

DuffMan (10154) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle while dining at Mochica Restaurant in San Francisco. Pale straw yellow, grainy aroma, slightly bready palate, but really just an average pale lager that is a little watery.

hopscotch (11030) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle... Clear, light yellow lager with a mid-sized, pillowy, white head and good retention. Smells like a very light mead... vinous and honey-laden with a hint of menthol. The flavor is sweet with some nice pilsner malt and pale grain/malt character. Leans just a touch on the sweet side of balance, but pleasantly so. Lightly bitter. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Actually, a pleasant, refreshing surprise!

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Couldnt pass up the chance to add Peru to my list of countries rated. Fizzy yellow. Small white head. Grassy aroma with hints of corn. Watery and light to the extent that its impossible to describe as unpleasant. Its almost like this one isnt even there. Another foreign snoozefest.

gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Found this bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Yellow pour with a bubbly white head, weak nose of sweet canned corn and not much else going on with this one. Your standard yellow fizz. Got a new country out of it, but pretty lame.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Mid-golden with persistent carbonation maintaining a spongy white head. Cattiness fades to sweet grasses and thick grainy notes. Mild, bittersweet flavor with a touch of sourness. Light alcohol shows late. Rather uneventful.

Big bottle. Golden colour with a short fizzy head. Malty and sweetish aroma. Flavour is a bit crispy with maltiness and a nice biterness. Pretty ok brew.

Pours golden corn haze reminiscant of a Kevin Costner film. But unlike ol Kevin, this isnt too bad. Its tolerable and has a bit of fizz to it. Watery by definition but definately not water world. thank feckin heyzeus. Taste is of malty corn, piled high with some lima-beans. more like a heiny than anything else. Listening to some charango, a native peruvian instrument.
