A very basic beer that is easy to drink. Very much like any larger you may have had not much more to say. A week of this and I just want hops please.

Bière qu’un ami ma rapporté du Costa Rica. De couleur blonde classique avec un léger col blanc qui se dissipe rapidement. Nez simple et classique de malt blond. En bouche c’est une lager assez classique mais facile a boire.

350ml can from a fundraising friend, shared with Ash. Pours pale straw yellow, no head. Aromas are cooked corn and green beans - classic mass-produced lager. Taste has more lemon, but a clean finish. Not as bad as I’d expected.

Costa Rica’s most popular beer. I’ve drank a bunch of these in my time here. Your average light lager. For $1.20 it isn’t bad

Clear golden colour, white dissipating head. Malty aroma, moth balls, bit off. Sweet malty flavour, light biscuit. Lots of CO2. Sweet malty finish. Ah well, it’s a new country tick.
(from bottle @ weekly tasting, Benzai’s place. Thanks for sharing, Rene!)

Bottle @ Benzai thx to Benzai. Clear pale yellow colour with almost no head. Smells like a toilet in a pub, malty, slightly soapy. Tastes malty, sweetish and boring. Thin body, soft carbo.

Bottle from MBM. Honey gold with a short lived white head. Aroma is grainy malt. Flavour is similar with a little hop bitterness in the finish. Not the worst pale lager.

Enjoyed many of these in Costa Rica in April 2013. For a mass produced resort country beer it's actually not terrible. Also has a decent logo and label that links to the German heritage of the country. Coincidentally since I got back I have started to see the beer for sale in the US. I will buy at least 1 6-pak per year in the summer for sentimental reasons.
