Bar Piselli, Lima. Small soap foam, weak clear yellow gold. Foamy, oddly fruity cardboard. Extremely modest bitter note. Annoying that it is more flavorful than refreshing. Meh. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
A golden lager with a thick collapsing white head. In aroma, sweet adjunct malt with light grassy German hops, light mineral notes, boring. In mouth, a sweet cloying malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, watery bodied, boring. Can from an abuelita tienda near my hotel, Trujillo Perú.

Backus Trujillo. Gold color. In between Pilsner and Cusquena. Malt flavot, some corn flakes cereal. Good carbonation. Refreshing, not too sweet, decent palate. It is a pale lager but a decent one. caribou43 (1152) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2016
It is a boring lager, nothing special. The color is yellow gold, thin foam, average carbonation. The hop doesn’t exist or too discreet and the malt or corn or the both are too sweet. I drank this beer in Lima. I think that the pilsen callao is a bit better. mzaar (3595) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2014
Can. Pours light golden with a white head. Weak aromas and flavours of corn and malt. Watery palate.

Bottle in Trujillo, just your average macro lager with a taste of mostly corn on a fizzy yellow body. Ok but drink it cold. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Pours golden with high white head. Some lacing. Aroma and taste are of corn and malt. Palate: Very ligth body. Somewhat crispy. Overall: Very ligth. Not good, not offensive. Just not interesting. Panzerfaust (865) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 9, 2012
620 ml bottle, gift from Perú (Thanks Eddie). This beer has a typical South American pale lager color, clear, translucent and lifeless. Head is big and white but disappears as fast as it grows. The aroma of weak malts lets the notes of corn syrup and grains. Taste is slightly better with a faint herbal bitterness giving it an edge over other South American macro swill, but not very much. Very, and it’s difficult to stress it enough, VERY light, but not offensive. Body is minimal, finish is evanescent, lively carbonated. The watery texture is in accordance to the overall blandness. I’m still waiting for a great Peruvian beer. j12601 (13033) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, courtesy of the inimitable GT. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big grain and sweet corn. Grainy and full of corn. Medium bodied and sweet. Not as good as the other Peruvian can. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
650mL at Shenandoah Throwdown. The pour is clear, light yellow. Small candy nose. Mealy apple and small metals in the body. Not very good. Very inferior to Pilsen Callao. Powdery, sweet palate.
