2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Bottle of Imperial Pale Lager, 4.60%ABV
An interesting lager from Costa Rica, Imperial, a very pleasant refreshing light lager.
Appearance was a crystal clear, pale golden straw colour, what a normal looking lager should look like. When pouring a small frothy white appeared that dissipated relatively fast with some lacing remaining.
Sweet aroma of lightly toasted malt with corn. Smell was great, very enticing.
Similar to the smell, there is a slightly bitter grassy flavour of a creamy aftertaste of dry corn sweetness, that leaves a dry feeling in the mouth
Overall, Imperial Beer is a standard, good lager.
