1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
As many have said, not a bad macro-lager if you are sitting on a beach in Costa Rica. Your basic lager but a bit lighter.Definately not the reason to go down to costa rica.

It’s drinkable, but it has a stinky-cheese toe jam aroma. This is more of a tourist beer (like Corona), either in Costa Rica or here in San Diego (the importer is based 25 miles north in Encinitas).

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Quite similar to Red Stripe as the water lended a citrusy feel to the blah lagerness of latin beer. Drinkable i suppose, but nothing that grabbed my fancy.

Pour is a sickly looking yellow with a fizzy head. Not much aroma or flavor. Just your typical macro lager. Not real good but i must admit it is quite refreshing when its 100+ in the shade. Costa Rica as a country has so much more to offer than its beer.

12oz bottle, purchased at the Coaster Bar in San Diego, during Iceman’s going away bash.
This is actually quite drinkable for macro-swill. Nothing spectacular, nothing bad. I wouldn’t pay for it again, but I’d drink it in a pinch, or if it were free

40 oz bottle: a buddy of mine brought back two of these bottles in this special cloth holder...I missed out on the first one, but the second actually got taped to my hand…anyway I don’t exactly know what color it was, but the flavours where reminiscent of each of the American pale lagers: clean and flavourless when ice cold and mild corn grist and stale hops as it warms. Nothing to visit Costa Rica for, but I hear there are other reasons to do that…

Draft in Costa Rica. So light you could almost lift off. Let’s call this one Costa Rica’s answer to Coors Light.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
(bottle, best by 5/30/05) Clear straw body with big white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bready. Taste is medium sweet, light bread, but really, not much of anything. Watery light body. Slight improvement as cutting against spicy food, but only slight. Ugh!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Decent enough to drink when you’re there, only because there aren’t many other options. Pale with very little head, best drunk on a beach ice cold. No hop flavor, just a watery thrist quencher.

Enjoyed this beer during my recent adventure through Costa Rica. The beer pours nice and has a nice smooth taste. Maintains a little bit of head. Very refreshing beer on a hot, high humidity day.
