Grumbo (4563) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2018
Bottle brought back to UK from Peru by Painy, cheers. Pours golden with an amber edge and a small short lasting just off-white head. Aroma of grain and grass. Heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, watery and slightly oily texture, average carbonation.

Bottle in Chancay Baños, Peru. Normal kind of lager, nothing special but ok after a long bus ride

Ritzn (2183) - GERMANY - JUN 14, 2017
Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is sweet grains some lemon also rice and straw. Taste is sweet grains and less tart hops. Watery and sweet. Awkward and bad.

gripweed57 (3042) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2017
From old tasting notes. Medium gold color with a slightly cloudy appearance. Tart malt aroma with a hint of hops. Some sweet malt notes in middle. Highly carbonated. Grainy bitter finish.

luttonm (7077) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Can in Lima. Small foam, light clear gold. Balanced, sweet macro lager nose. Fairly sweet body, with a bit better balance of flavor than average. Rather drinkable. Bright enough carbonation with a flavorful, sweet base. Rather good for what it is in my opinion. When I was purchasing this can at a supermarket, alongside a number of other Peruvian beers - craft and otherwise - the man in line in front of me expressed interest in the strange bottles. But then told me that he was as curious as I to try them, but that this green one - the Pilsen - would be the best. Well, it ain’t terrible.

Benzai (16999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, hay, weak bitterness, low malt bitter finish. Very drinkable on a hot day though, just not very full of flavor (as was expected).

AirForceHops (8175) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 23, 2016
Fresh 12 oz. can thanks jcwattsrugger for the share! Crystal clear gold, piss color. Aroma is lager yeast, skunky and light corn. Flavor is mostly the same as the aroma. Skunky yeast is not overwhelming. Mostly corn and grain in a light watery body. Not offensive.

puboflyons (3562) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 23, 2016
From a can thanks to jcwattsrugger. Yellow pour with white foamy head. Definite malt dough nose with light grassy hops. Smooth and light body. The taste has a malt sweetness with a mild bitter finish.
