BACKUS Y JOHNSTON CRISTAL

Union De Cervecerias Peruanas Backus y Johnston Cristal to give it it’s full name. An American Adjunct Lager (I had to look that one up), and, yes, this fits the bill.

“Beer from the Andes”. Yes, the Andes run through Peru and Lima is the capital of Peru, but it’s bit like saying that Tooheys (their main brewery is in Lidcombe, a suburb of Sydney) is “Beer from the Outback”.

This is standard American Adjunct Lager, and I am sure that I wouldn't enjoy it on the top of the Andes, but I would not touch it otherwise. It’s clean and crisp and pretty much tasteless. I think that I actually preferred the free VB that I had the other day.
