1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Appearance: pale yellow color. Lithe head of white color and without persistency.
Aroma: mainly of adjunct grains. Maybe some lemon-skin notes. Light pellet hops.
Flavor: dominated for the adjuncts. Mineralized touches and a slight dryness.
Palate: light body and watery texture. Medium to high carbonation.
Remark: very bad beer, totally insipid. I can’t finish this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Clear pale gold with a small lasting spit of a head. Aroma is honey and spicy grain. Flavor is a nice balance: honey and grain with a crisp peppery-cardboard and grass finish. Light body is watery and finishes dry.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a clear yellow. Aromas of rice and some hops. Taste was mostly of rice, with some nice lager flavors. It was pretty smooth overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Initial pour produced instant disappointment with a clear yellow body, with large bubbles of carbonation (like a soda), topped by a non-existent head. Not much nose, some hops, though not much else (my wife likened it to a Miller product.) Flavor falls a little flat, though not too bad: mild bitterness, with minimal mouthfeel. Other than a fair balance between the hops and malt (balanced too well in my opinion, taking away from it’s character) there is nothing striking about this beer. Overall, for what it is, it’s not bad: Drinkable, well-balanced, minimal aftertaste. Certainly not a beer built to impress, but to be consumed.
