Not to light, not too dark. Love the flavor. Don't drink it that much, which is why I wont get sick of it. Being the first rating i've made here, i'm not sure what else to say. if you haven't tried it...try it

I had one of these at an open air restaurant in a Peruvian border town. It was a 20 oz bomber served very cold in a chilled glass. It was a great complement to the food. For a South American beer it was quite good.

I found this beer surprisingly good... I was expecting just another Latin American weak lager, but Pils Callao had decent body, a pleasing raste, and a sweet finish. Heck, I like it!

Had in a bottle in Peru...a few times. This beer is readily available in Peru. I am impressed that with all of the offerings I have had that came from a green bottle, none were skunked. Macro lager type beer. Nothing overly complex or interesting, but really refreshing, easy drinking, and pairs well with a beach and ceviche in Paracas.

12oz bottle. Gift from Maddie (I work with). Crisp golden color. Big fizzy white head. Sweet malt aroma. Very pleasant malt helles flavor. Would drink this one again, definitely!

Hace honor a su estilo, al marcar el punto de amargor caracteristico de las pilsen alemanas tanto en aroma como en boca (en menor medida). Por lo demas caracteristicas tipicas en cuanto a color y espuma, y buen equilibrio dulce y amargo, con adecuada carbonatacion. Se bebe bien.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2005 good clean pils with a nice malt taste.

A crystal clear gold color with a bright white frothy head that is massive in size, the lace is a white curtain draped upon the glass. Nose is crisp and clean as a lager should be, pleasant as noses go, start is quite sweet, nice malt profile, and the top light to middling in its feel to the palate. Finish has a biting acidity, the hops present and mellow in their spiciness, very dry aftertaste. In all fairness, one of the better lagers I’ve tasted in a while, quite a little thirst quencher and would be a great “lawnmower beer”.

hopscotch (11051) - 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!
