1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well carbonated pale yellow, ginger ale appearance. Feint, sweet grains entwined with corn in the aroma. Watery body with just a tint of malt flavoring, but this one is has very diluted flavor. Slightly corn-sweet finish, but inoffensive.

Bottle at Driftwood in Jaco Costa Rica. Dark golden color. Smells like miller high life. Rusty malty cheap beer taste. Yet I like just because I’m used to this taste from the college days

The ticas love this beer but I found it to be a artificially sweet mess. My least favorite beer here

350ml bottle. drank this from the bottle so no idea on the appearance. aroma and taste are almost identical to standard imperial. it’s meant to be smoother and more refined but i couldn’t tell the difference. not extremely fizzy, aroma and taste are both of very weak hops.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce can from the candy shoppe at Double Tree Puntarenas Resort. My driver was telling me how bitter this was so, I HAD to try it. Aroma is of sugar cane and corny DMS. Light vegetal hints, too. Not sure what is different about this. Transparent yellow body with a white head that leaves decent lacing. This um, pretty well tastes like nothing. I guess that’s a good thing. Not so much corny DMS or vegetal presence. Just kind of a flavorless, bland, easy-drinking pale lager. Arguably the best beer I have had here, which is pretty sad.

colo amarillo palido. Oxidada, fuertes notas a papel y carton. Bajo amargo de buena calidad. Probada un mes antes de la fecha de consumo preferible.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned, 0.350l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and lively bubbles. Aroma of light malt, grains, grassy hops and some skunkiness. Taste starts refreshing grainy and with adjuncts, then followed with sour grassy hints. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while aftertaste is mildly bitter and somehow spicy. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. My first Costa Rican encounters - in fact not that bad than some others...

Better than the other imperial and most Costa Rican beers. Granted this was like my eighth trashy lager of the night and I wasn’t in the position to be a good judge of beer, but this seemed better than the rest.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle served in pint glass. Fresh (in Jan. 2011) according to date on label. Pours clear and golden, with medium/light carbonation and a thin and short-lived white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.
Light aroma and flavor, but more like a standard macro-brewery lager than a light beer. Body closer to medium. Flavor of grains and light hops.
Should be a refreshing summer drink, but not a recommendable beer.
