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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
