Costa Ricans have been enjoying this beer since 1924. Imperial is created from a balanced formula combining malts, grains and hops, without a pronounced overtone in its taste. It is what is known as a “centralized” beer. Adapted to a warm and spring-like climate, Imperial is Florida’s most popular and widely accepted beer, both nationally and internationally, and has thus become the favorite beer of Costa Rica.

TedE (634) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2015
12 fl oz bottle into tulip. Very sweet malt/bread nose, a little pepper. Clear pale amber beer with fluffy white head. Very little carbonation. Slight zing on the tongue, a bit of body. Finish is bitter, sour, vegetal. Not the best, not the worst.

330 ml bottle - pale golden yellow with a white frothy head. Sweet carbonated taste. Nothing to dislike but nothing to enjoy either.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Kennesaw, GA. This is a straw colored beer with moderate carbonation. The flavor is standard AAL with no bad aftertaste. An ok session beer.

swillguzzler99 (173) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pale straw and carbonation similar to American macro. Light malt nose. Very mild grain taste with almost no flavor. Clean finish. A beer you drink for the effects en masse rather than the flavor.

Golden pour right from the can. Taste is a mild blend of hops, mat, grain and barley. Overall better than I expected.

rollinsr (504) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - AUG 11, 2015
Pours clear and yellow with thin foamy white head. Aroma is light and lagery with pungent yeast shining through. Flavor is crisp but uneventful. Solid beach beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had it from the can. It’s corn and sweet malt. It gets the job done on a hot day. I’d take it over Corona. It’s rather bland and forgettable though.

Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Sweet malty aroma with hay and grass notes. For a pale lager it is ok, but not to my taste.
