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.

12 oz bottle. Pours with a small head golden and clear. Very little aroma. Flavors of dms and corn. Grainy. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bue en bouteille de 350ml. Bière de soif plutôt mauvaise et sans intérêt particulier. Fade, saveur de mauvais malt, pas de houblon.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Smells like wet laundry, thin and extremely pale in color. Not not bad tasting with very minor adjuncts flavor. Only when you want to get buzzed ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This must not be a very popular beer because I had to create not only the beer, but the brewery on here. It’s basically an American Pale Lager with a Latin twist. It’s really not as bad as you might expect. It has a decent flavor and is a nice change from Budweiser, Miller, and even Corona. First rated July 14th, 2013.
Earlier Rating: 7/21/2013 Total Score: 2.2
Just another foreign Lager / Pale Lager, but it’s still cool to drink a beer from Costa Rica.

beerguy00 (107) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with 1/4 finger head. Aroma of malt and grass. Flavor matches aroma but much more watery than I expected considering the nice aroma. Bland beer, but it isn’t terrible.

rand (1300) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle 12 fl.oz from Drinks of the World - Bern (CH). Straw blonde with a short head and fine crackling. Aromas of cereals, honey, slight hop. The taste is fresh, on cereals, with a hint of hop, but rather short. Beer of thirst, standard and industrial, low bitterness. Bland and commonplace.

MarkoNm (536) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a very pale golden color, topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head. There is a mild malty aroma, not much else. The taste is light, watery and sweet. No real bitterness in the finish. OK, when it’s ice cold. Otherwise, meh.

Can. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, grain. Flavour is fruit, malt, grain, cooked vegetables. Medium to thin body. Boring beer.

jjgmd (1438) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2014
At the hotel, a clear horrid pour. Nose is grainy. Taste is flat, dull without any flavor, watery, in the same category as all big macro lagers. :( quaff score 3 / 10
