COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a pale pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Light aroma of corn. Medium body, notes of brewing cereal and a light tartness. Tiny wee bitterness in the finish. A very typical New World Pale Lager. 210606

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
Thin snow white head, very light clear golden body. Grainy and slightly herby aroma, weak and uninteresting. Grainy flavor as well with a vague fruity and creamy note. Dull and uninteresting, but not disgusting as some int. lagers. Thanks a lot Papsoe for bringing it for share at Řlbutikken!

Given to me by a co-worker who recently went to Costa Rica. Very pale, clear golden with a white head. Faint, light grainy nose. The flavor is light but refreshing and inoffensive; notes of light grain, corn and lemon. Light bitterness. Watery body with moderate carbonation. As far as ratings go, this beer doesn’t have much going on but I have to admit: it wasn’t bad. You can have 15 of these while you’re fishing.

Found everywhere and can be had in roadside joints for as little as C300, or about $0.60 cold in the bottle. Pours clean and crystal clear. Costa Rican water is really some of the best and it shows in the simple taste and beautiful head. To be drunk cold and quick, as someone else said. But, after a long day in the sun and surf, I needed nothing more than a clean light beer and plenty of them! At -1 degree C, they hit the spot.

The ubiquitous beer of Costa Rica. Drained many 12oz cans during a recent visit. Suited well for the blast furnace like coastal climate. That’s the best I can say.

AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - MAR 10, 2006
Pale yellow color with a quick head. Only marginally better than the beer that we can get in Panama. Drink super cold and super quick....Did anyone else notice that the "Commercial Description" sounds like an apology for making bad beer.

Sampled this at the local beer festival, and I was not impressed with this beer. Light yellow in color, beer is bitter with a bit of skunk. Costa Rica must have better beer than this.
