jbuzz (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Light golden color with a thin white head. Light aromas of grass and light malt. Sharp but not bitter.

b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Had in Peru on vacation. Very light yellow color with small white head that quickly disappeared. Flavor and aroma were too weak, and tasted like cheap pale lagers in the U.S.

DTM (870) - Vacaville, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Bottle from World Market in Davis, CA. Poured a gold color with a large white head. Thin-bodied beer with a fair amount of carbonation. Sweet malt flavor that went down smooth. Didn’t really get a lot of the grassy flavor I usually taste with most pale lagers. Pretty good brew.

bhensonb (15965) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
12 oz bottle - Cerveza Cristal Beer on front; Premium Cristal Beer on back; 5%. Light golden color with a fine white head. Light aromas of grassy hop and pale malt. A bit thin bodied with fizzy carbonation. Seems to have noble hop, a touch of lemon, and a bit of grain for flavor. Finish is a bit sharp, and not very bitter. Ok pale lager.

2.2
tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a super light, super clear green-yellow with violent carbonation and decent white head. The aroma is hay, lemon, and sweet malt. The flavor is malty sweetness and a tart carbonic edge. Not much else going on, but at least there’s nothing offensive.

jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2008
[email protected] Grainy and crisp aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, no lace. Almost no flavor, light grainy, some bitterness, thinnish. Maybe refreshing if it’s a hot day but you could take water instead.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - APR 26, 2008
Yet another bla,d South American pale lager. Light golden color, weak aroma and flavor. It did go down real quick.

2.1
BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 21, 2008
Labeled as Cristal, Beer from the Andes. Pours with a large, rocky, white head covering a clear, pale yellow body. Aroma of overipened apples, grass and sweet corn. Sour bread, grass, and watery taste. Refreshing but not good. Fizzy and thin mouthfeel.

1.8
haf (537) - Gijon, SPAIN - APR 2, 2008
Botella 330 Ml. La primera cervezaq peruana que pruebo y no me dan ganas de probar mas.

1.7
HughConway (831) - Washington, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Clear gold pour into the mug with thin white head. Not much for aroma or flavour, standard South American industrial lager.
