From the 300 ml. bottle with no date that I can see. Sampled on September 3, 2018.

Golden amber pour under na quick lived white foamy head. Good clarity.

The aroma has a vague vegetable oil character at first but then I pick up a grainy malt sweetness with feint grassy hops. Not very robust in the aroma.

The body is light to medium.

A typical South American lager beer with grainy sweetness in the taste and a clean, crisp hop finish. Nothing extraordinary here.

Shimmering gold with a large white dome of foam, this puppy is your classic crisp lager swill that's a bit skunky, with background notes of grape, corn, and slightly bittering grass.

The beer from Lima, Peru. Spring water from the Andes. Saaz hops. Malts and yeast from from Peru make this a quite good beer. They label it an Euro Pale Lager and yes it is very similar to the beers of Slovenia or Croatia for example - where actually they make quite good lagers in the vein of the American Adjunct... so it is the dilemma of the hen and the egg. But nevertheless it is better than a commercial Euro Lager, it is quite neutral but thanks to the Saaz, it is enjoyable. Do not label it as a poor beer and give it a chance to prove your prejudices wrong! It is quite okay indeed..

Pretty standard stuff for a mass-produced foreign lager, very similar to Quilmes from nearby Argentina as well as a few others I'm sure. The European comparables on this website are Harp, Carlsberg, Zywiec and the like, and that's pretty much what you get. Nice for a hot day or with spicy food to mellow things out, and great when served very cold.

Light, crisp and not very flavorful. Pretty standard AAL. Some slight caramel malt flavor, but mostly flavorless. Drink iced cold. Perfect for a hot ass day!
