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.

Bottle at some Mexican food place. Didn’t get a glass for it, so can’t attest to the color. Aroma was similar to the aroma which was heavy on the corn and grain, but not a lot of funk. For the style it was about average.

Don’t see much to like about this one. The appearance is the lightest and clearest of just about any beer i’ve had. It reminds me much of seltzer water with a bit of kolsch added. Not very sweet, not much flavor. There is some okay pepperiness to it though and nothing really offensive. Still why even bother?

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.
