Bottle at the former Foam Depot, Galveston, TX.
Pours an average gold with a nose of sweet and malty corn and grassy hops. Flavor is artificially sweetened corn cereal and a touch of flour. Average mouthfeel. Typical Latin beer.

chinchill (1863) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
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.

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.

Clear bottle from Costa Rica. ~LIght skunkiness, corn, light malt, spicy hop aroma. ~Pours clear golden with long lasting creamy white head. ~Sweet malty corn flavor with light spicy hops. ~light medium bodied, high CO2, quick corny finish. ~It is what its meant to be. Easy to drink and great for hot days.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
350 mL bottle, purchased in San Jose. Pours a pale yellow color; fluffy white head with decent retention and lacing. Corn, sugar, and slight fruitiness in the aroma; not much here; slightly skunked; cardboard. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: crisp, more carbonation than the Imperial Silver, which was actually alright; here, lots of base graininess, basic citrus / grape fruitiness, and stale malts; underwhelming, but still drinkable when the temp’s at 85+. Basic finish, toasty, stale malts.

Puntarenus, Costa Rica: 29th March 2014. Once I had the regular Imperial I wandered over to the beer fridges and opened one up in the random corner bar we were in: inside I found bottles of this and a Pilsen, I grabbed both. Of the three beers this was the sweetest, but like them all it lacked oomph, true flavour/aroma/style/class or character. Just a bog standard thirst quencher in a hot country.

A beer I drank in Costa Rica, which I poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. It had a clear gold, small foamy white head with short retention and light cling, with some rising bubbles. The aroma featured grainy and grassy hops, with a touch of yeast. Its taste was somewhat sour and grainy, with some bitterness too; a bit heavier than normal Imperial. The beer’s body was medium-thick, but not much mouthfeel, and it had low to average carbonation. The normal Imperial beer is superior in my opinion.
