Bottle: Ingredients list reads ’pure and natural water’ hope it’s true because this taste like sewage drainage; terrible.

330ml bottle as Cristal Cerveza De Los Andes. bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes.Low white head, crystal clear golden body, dotted spots on the glass. Very distant cereal smell. Pale malty taste with citric notes far behind. Mid-dry ending. Lively carbonated. Anonymous, but quite okay with our red curry chicken Thai soup. (Tromsø 18.02.2018).

Wasser mit leicht süßlichem Getreidearoma. Gute Drinkability aber absolut kein Highlight.

330ml bottle into a Corsendonk glass on 16th Jan 2018 while at my daughters in California. Clear golden body, white crown at first, soon a wisp and collar. Grainy/corn like aroma and taste, not really a classic Pale Lager, just one for the 'tick'. I am sure the beer is great on a sunny afternoon with a mountain vista to look at, but it didn't do it for me today.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Bottle 33 cl. Golden, clear with a white head. Sweet malt and corn aroma. Light bitter with a malt end.

Zakupene v obchodiku zaujimave potraviny. Vona skoro ziadna a to iste sa da povedat aj o chuti.

Several bottles in Peru. Really normal lager, refreshing, but nothing special

cmacklin (1446) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium, foamy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Skunky aroma of grainy malt and vegetables. Sweet flavour of corn, grainy malt and cardboard with a dry, bitter grass finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. Not very good.

Ritzn (2230) - GERMANY - JUL 4, 2017
Aroma is straw old hops mustyness. Taste is sweet malt with bitter accents. Metallic old hops still coming through. Medium drinkable a bit too bitter. Could be much worse.
