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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2006
A very light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is an unpleasant grassy one with some metal notes - and so is the flavor, leading to a dry metallic end. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

omhper (19334) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Bottled in Monteverde. Pale yellow, coarse head. Aroma of an empty can with conserved peas. Sweetish, empty and metallic. Tastes like a used garbage can, and that is coincidencially also where I think this beer belongs.
