1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz Bottle: Very pale straw colored pour with a dissappearing loose white film. Sweet corn mash and apple juicey aroma. There’s a hint of cheap yeast somewhere in there. I could hardly taste it, even when it warmed to room temperature from cellar temp. Some peppery staleness, a hint of appleskin, and straw. Just another generic and forgettable Latin Pale Lager.

12 oz at Casa Picante. Another Corona wannabe. At least the bottle doesn’t promote skunking and it can actually be had without a lime.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light golden yellow color with a thin soft white head. The aroma was a little sweet with some corn and a faint brewer’s yeast smell. A slow steady stream of carbonation rises from the glass.
The first sip was kinda tasty - slightly sweet with some corn. Subsequent sips were not as flavorful. Little body, little character.

Faint fusel alcohol aroma on a pale yellow beer. Tastes like south american water, with a bit of added sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer won’t hurt. It isn’t bitter; small head, light color. . . You see, that’s pretty much the beer in a nutshell -- it isn’t much of anything! I drank this beer after drinking a darker beer, and could barely taste it. I revisit it again later for this review; and it’s an enjoyable glass but there isn’t one thing to distinguish it. Harmless and forgetful, this comes in right down the middle.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Picked up this "Cerveza Imperial Beer" thinking I was maybe scoring a new country, but alas, Ole already scored me Costa Rica. In any event, this Costa Rican beauty (La Florida Bebidas) is a fairly typical pale lager in appearance (how do people drink this kind of stuff regularly?), aroma is normal corny, grainy, skunky. The flavor is corny, grain, skunky, metallic, and additionally apple cidery. The latter was the most distinguishing feature within the style, snore. Mouthfeel was typical.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My friend brought back a liter of this and a liter of Pilsen from Costa RIca for me and yesterday, finding nothing better to do, I indulged in the taste or Costa Rican pale lager. The beer pours clear, completely with minimal head. The taste is strange because there is an element of alcohol in a 4.6 percent beer which there definately should not be. Overall, this is a swillable kind of a beer and I would swill it again if the chance came about.

Too bad packaging isn’t a rating factor. In CR, this is THE beer. the eagle is practically the national flag.
Only tolerable when very cold and you are very thirsty.
drinking it in the pool, as you do, splashes of chlorine are inevitable: this actually improves the flavour. Still bought a T shirt though.
