UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 This is from the newest and best (one of very few)craft brewers in Peru. Poured hazy golden/orange with little carbonation and large bubbles, almost no head. Citrus aroma with a nice balance of sweet and bitter malts. A very pleasant surprise, My favorite Peruvian beer at this point.
Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is grass hop pallets slight dusty dogfood fruits. Taste is harsh bitter grass. Not so smooth. Meh. AtronSeige (1519) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 14, 2017
Aroma: Medium pineapple, mango, passion fruit.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber body. Small, off-white head.
Flavour: Medium-high fruity, pineapple. Medium biscuit, bitterness.Dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Very good. Hops are in front, but the malt is present and offering support. Could do with a bit of malt in the aroma. Color is a tad too dark.
330 ml bottle, poured, shared. Thanks Chewybeer!

330ml bottle: Pours a hazy copper with thin off white head. Aroma of citrus and pineapple. Medium bitterness with medium body. Medium light carbonation. I find that the hops over power the malt. luttonm (6169) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle in Lima. Small white foam, light hazed gold, typical pale ale appearance if a bit hazy. Soft fruity nose, musky orange. Full flavor sip, well constructed body. Reminds me of the old school American pale ales and ESBs. Good hop and malt balance, pushing the better fruity and bitter characteristics of each. Hazy body contributes to a juicy, hazy feel. A little too round, and fairly sweet. Could use a touch of refinement, but the flavors are lovely and balanced. Not precisely my style but I respect this a lot.

On tap at Chelawasi. Hazy bright orange. Medium white head. Smells citrusy with a strong sweet aroma. Not like pale malt. Not sure what it is. A bright sugar aroma. Tastes of orange and grapefruit up front. Immediately bitter. A little pithy. The sugar profile is again strong, and not like pale malt. Again not sure what’s providing it. Bitter finish. Medium body, maybe a little sluggish. Not bad. A strange profile, though. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2016
330ml bottle-tight foamy white-gold. A-biscuit malt, some fruit. T-lt/med malt, earthy hops. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2015
Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, grass, caramel, fruit and some hops. Taste is sweetish and a moderate hop finish. MohaBeer (280) - Lima, PERU - AUG 12, 2015
Más que pale, alcanza apariencia a una amber o red ale, con opalescencia. Espuma regular con adherencia. Predomina en aroma el lúpulo cítrico y terroso con notas a malta caramelo, ésteres a durazno y ligero tostado. En sabor balance al lúpulo cítrico y terroso con un final tostado y amargor con ligera astringencia. mzaar (3389) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle @ La Bodega 138, Cusco. (AVB on this 6,5%). Pours hazy amber with a nice off white head. Aromas and flavours of grapefruit, caramel, citrus, grass. Medium to full body. Round and smooth mouth feel. Fine bitterness. More a DIPA than an APA. However, a great Peruvian beer.
