This is actually a pure malt beer, not an adjunct Lager.
Golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Light aroma of sweet pale malt and some herbal hops.
Likewise, flavor of sweet malt, minerals and herbal hops. Not much more in here, but also no off-flavors. Mildly dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light bordering watery body with good carbonation.
Very clean and mild taste, good session summer beer.

Let me just say right off that I did not enjoy this beer at all. A one mm head and orange amber color. Smells a little malty and not much else. No mouthfeel at all. Tastes like water with a little carbonation. No body, substance or mouthfeel at all. The only thing I like was the bottle which has the Machu Picchu granite blocks on the bottle.

Ahh, the beer of choice for Peruvians.
Had this a few times while traveling around Peru; it's ubiquitous. Basically it's Miller Lite. Not much flavor, not much nose... not much of anything. It's not actively bad, and it's certainly crowd pleasing, but there are a couple of better options now when visiting Peru.

A: Clear golden color. The white head is really small and rather light, sinks instantly. No lace.

S: Lots of corn. Bitter hops is mild as is the malt. Some faint nettles and grass.

T: Bready malt, sadly infested with corn. Bitter hops. Buttery. Mild citric.

M: Short aftertaste, medium body and rich carbonation - no surprises there...

O: A thirst-quencher - but so is water...
