Presentation: 12 fluid ounce brown glass bottle, the type that has a sloping neck. Main black label has a gold colored picture of an Inca style head carving. The words ‘Peru’ are above and ‘Gold’ below. Described as an ‘Imported Peruvian Beer’, that is listed at 5% ABV. No freshness date and listed on the reverse as imported by ‘Logret Import/Export, CA 91746’. Cost $1.39.

Appearance: Pours with a clear straw golden body, plenty of streamers and a nice looking white head that remains at about ¼” throughout the drink. Some light smattering on the glass walls. Solid carbonation.

Nose: Sweet pale malts with a light bready odor, pretty relaxed nose.

Taste: Crisp beginnings, some pale malts and a light bitterness. Not too much to report really, it’s a very clean crisp pale lager that neither excites nor upsets.

Mouthfeel: A light body is supported by the carbonation, but it is never more than average in the feel. A very Euro-Lager-like feel about. Crisp feel in the mouth, with no lingering nasties.

Drinkability: Very thirst quenching, and imminently drinkable. Quite a clean beer that does not suffer any “corn or butterscotch” detractions as most other beers of this ilk so often do.

Overall: Another one of those “I’ve never seen this before, it’s a single that is not too expensive, so I think I’ll try it” beers. Not bad, but I don’t think I will be filling my Fridge with it in the near future.
