3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 As far as S.A. beers go, this is one of the better ones. Reminded me a lot of how Henry Weinhards used to taste (back when they were in Oregon.) Crisp pale yellow color, foamy head and very mildly sweet. Not much aroma tho - but Pale Lagers aren’t known for their aroma.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled: Poured a clear pale straw/gold, medium carbonation and a lingering head. Had so odd clear floating bits hanging around so I’m guessing that this bottle hasn’t been treated all that well. Corny nose with hints of hops. Thin adjuncty body with some grassy hop notes. A drinkable tropical lager with not much happening

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
More substantial than most Mexican beers. Clear yellow with a white head. Still corny and sugary, but actually has a grassy hop-like flavor.

I am Costa Rican and I know that they have better beers but this the working mans cerveza. It’s a very natural crisp clean taste imported from a beautiful country.

Recently, at a particularly poor beer tasting offered by a local store, I scanned their cooler for some awful beer that they had on hand, just to up the ante. This was another one of them. Pale yellow, almost colorless. The aroma was of stale water. Vile in the mouth. The flavor was almost completely absent, mercifully.

This is known in the highly technical language of the true beer aficionado as a "centralized" beer, containing as it does BOTH malts AND grains, in addition to something called Hops. Now, hearing that, one might become concerned that this beer might have a pronounced overtone in it’s taste. I assure you, however, that nothing could be further from the truth. For these and many other reasons, this beer has become not only Florida’s most popular beer, but it’s most widely accepted beer as well, both nationally and internationally...which has resulted, in some strange way, in it’s becoming the favorite beer of Costa Rica. Thank you.

Very pale gold color. Light flavor. OK session beer. Bought a single from Duluth Package Store and won’t be getting another one. Comparable to Tona, Victoria, and Brahva.
