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.

Pale yellow in color. Watery taste with slight bitterness. The worst beer I had during my stay in Costa Rica.

Had this one canned in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. This is not as bad as the percentile makes it out to be! Pale yellow color, thin white head, somewhat effervescent, nose of canned corn and sweet grass, taste the same. Deserves a better rating than this. Very refreshing on a very hot day.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Looks okay, golden yellow with a foamy, bubbly white head. The aroma is faint, sweet bready malt with a light grassy bitterness. Seems to be better than 50% malt in the taste, although the corny metallica shines through near the end. The finish features sweet malt, a mild earthiness, and zinc.

Thanks Jeremy for bringing this beer back from Costa Rica! Pours a deep, dark golden color with a thick white head. Strong aroma. Heavy on the malt, as well as in the taste. Sense of hops. Finishes off well. I believe this beer is deserving of a better ranking.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
light sweet malty aroma. Pale yellow clour with thin, quickly disappearing head. Flavour is faint grassiness and watery. Standard Central American lager.

From a can. Per Kevin! Country++. This beer pours to a yellow urine color with a oily white head. The aroma is a huge floral hoppyness and bready. Doesn’t smell half bad. The flavor is very grainy and lightly hoppy. The palate is inoffensive.

A can shared by Kevin. Fizzy yellow body, white head. Wet, sweet cardboard aroma. Stale husky grain flavor with a tart sour corn element. Crap.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Poor aroma, it reminds me of stale urine. Bright, pale, golden hue, with little head, also like urine. Weak, non-descript flavor. Light body, with medium carbonation. Overall, it seems on par with what you would find at any bar (in Costa Rica, of course).
