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...

A - Clear Amber colour, white foamy head that dissipates quickly.

S - 100% pure malt, so on the nose is pure malt, slight breadiness and a hint of sour lemon which must be from the hops.

T - Sweetness from the malts, with no lingering hoppy bitterness.

M - Gentle carbonation, leading to a slightly drying finish

O - As south american pale lagers go, it is the best of a bad bunch, the only saving grace is that their are no unnecessary adjuncts in it.
