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.

The first time I had this was at a all inclusive in Costa Rica, so I had to drink this for a week straight. Not a bad beer, better then all of the US Macros. Still nothing special. I was surprised by how good it was compared to any US beers (macro that is).

typical lager, pale, yellow, fizzy and very little flavor, good for hot summer days at a bbq, would drink over any us macro brew.

Taste like a light beer. Foamy, but refreshing. It has some light bitter taste. Drink cold.

Pale straw yellow with a quarter-inch white head. Sour corn aroma. Corny, yeasty flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Not very impressive.

Thanks to my buddy Aaron for bringing the brew back from Costa Rica! A bland pale lager, not overly sweet, but just there, abit of cereal, very drinkable if cold, but not much to it! eh..

unclemattie (4336) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Much better than expected. 12oz bottle, 4.6%ABV. Clear, deep, golden yellow; huge white fluffy head. Aroma of sweet malts and grains, with a hint of corn. Heavy lager flavor of malts balanced very well with a mild, grassy hop flavor. Light bodied, full flavored. A Pleasant Tropical Lager.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - SEP 20, 2007
Pours a light yellow liquid with little vast dissappering white head. Tasteless and odorless, although I little it of skunk. I think they are using more corn and rice than malt.
