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.

Golden pour right from the can. Taste is a mild blend of hops, mat, grain and barley. Overall better than I expected.

Pours clear and yellow with thin foamy white head. Aroma is light and lagery with pungent yeast shining through. Flavor is crisp but uneventful. Solid beach beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had it from the can. It’s corn and sweet malt. It gets the job done on a hot day. I’d take it over Corona. It’s rather bland and forgettable though.

Aggiebob (337) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Sweet malty aroma with hay and grass notes. For a pale lager it is ok, but not to my taste.

Easy drinking beer. While there’s absolutely nothing that stands out, Imperial doesn’t offend and is fine for a hot day.
