12oz bottle. Light amber color, nice heavy medium head and some lace. Taste is surprisingly good, malts and hops and a well balanced bitterness. A drinkable beer. My go to easy access beer in Costa Rica.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of metal. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Well, I’ll be darned...Florida actually makes a drinkable brewski. I’ve tried pretty much all their brews (other than goofy shit like Rock Limon) and this stands out above all the rest as a very drinkable brew that’s not laden with defects as their other products are. Decent malt (for this sort of beer at least) and noticeable hop aroma start things off right, and the flavor is reasonably clean with good finishing bitterness. Just as savvy visitors to Mexico (or Mexican restaurants) know that Bohemia is the one that’s actually decent (not Negra Modelo as so many assume), it’s nice to discover there is one factory brew in CR that can be consumed without wincing.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Bottle in Costa Rica. Pours a golden color with white head. Corn, pils, grainy aromas and flavors. Light, but enjoyable lager. I enjoyed this more than the Pilsen, but slightly less than the Imperial.

A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, crisp malt with light grassy German hops, light metallic notes. In mouth, a smooth crisp malt with mineral notes and light German hops, not bad. Can from Auto Mercado San Jose.

29th March 2014: Punteranus, Costa Rica. Once we had tried all three beers available at our first bar we decided to have a stroll around and see if we could find somewhere else to spend our Dollars: we did find somewhere and they had this along with two more new brews for me (Bavaria Light and Rock Lemon: not ideal, but a tick is a tick sometimes). Reminded me of the Dutch Bavarian Lager you can get in Holland and the UK: golden, bright and clean looking, Odourless almost and devoid of taste, but a typical lager based beer nonetheless. It was a lot better than what was to follow!

Bottled in Guacimal, Costa Rica. Clear golden, small head. Somewhat buttery nose. Sweetish with clean, rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Butter and overripe fruits. Low bitterness. Average industrial lager.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fizzy gold, highly carbonated body with thick, off-white foamy head. Spicy grain nose, decidedly more substantial than I an anticipated--perhaps even a whiff of Belgian yeast--but then it fades into a more routine, stale cardboard quality. Thinnish body, very light and thinly sweet. Scarcely palbable at all. A whisper of a beer.
