From a 12 oz bottle from the North Coast Coop in Arcata, CA this poured a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose of malts and hops. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is corn and grassy hops. No finish at all. Like most beers of this type, it is drinkable if very cold.

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.

Bottled. Honestly just tallying up a beer from Costa Rica. Better than expected though Probably an average pae lager all the way around but refreshing in warm weather and more taste than the normal yellow, fizzy water.

Palate: light body and watery texture. Medium to high carbonation.
Remark: very bad beer, totally insipid. I can’t finish this beer.
