My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
14.5 points overall
Premium Cristal (bottled)
Style 14 - German Light Lager
- 14.5 points - Beer #19-1525, The Inner Label, Honolulu HI, June 27, 1996
Golden, fizzy. Sweet, malty aroma. Malty-sweet, OK body, some hops late. "The Peruvian Budweiser"...but it has more character than Budweiser. No glass...swigged straight from the bottle. Thanks to Linda Armour of The Inner Label for the beer!
