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.

12oz bottle. Obvious Spanish type brew. Yet, a very solid one. Refreshing and very drinkable. I will buy more of these.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 12 oz bottle. Body is light yellow. Aroma is ’sss’ - standard spanish skunk. The taste is rather smooth. Not a bad pale lager, Thanks Costa Rica ;) .

bottle. Clear straw colored. active carbonation. Aroma is lightly grainy, with some corn and cooked cabbage. Taste is watery and bland, with some adjunct and cooked corn (dms). Ugh.

It takes much like corona or other south of the border beers, very cheap and tastes pretty good. I highly recommened getting drunk in costa rica with this stuff, its only a buck a bottle.

12oz Bottle: Light golden color, no head on the pour. Barely comes alive on the swirl. Very light malt in the aroma, slight yeast & very light lemon. Seems pretty crisp on the first sip, nice carbonation, has a bit of tang to it. Alright, I guess.

From a bottle poured clear golden with a fair amount of head. Flavor was almost sweet but decent.

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.
