I did not have high expectations of South American beers after visiting Central American and Colombia previously, but I was pleasantly surprised by Cristal. It pours smoothly, has a golden texture, has little carbonation sparkle, and has medium white head. It has a lightly pleasing malt aroma, no hard after taste, and goes down smooth without any edge.
This is Peru's leading export beer and I have had in a variety areas of the US, but I have this all over Peru as well.

Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and Taste of sweet grains, cereal, some grass notes. A lightly carbonated brew, mildly crisp, light and sweet on the palate. Not too bad for what it is, good to try new beers. Good for a hot humid summer day.
