on tap at el gaff, a bit weird considering they didn’t have it available at the costa rican craft brew factory. anyways, standard steady golden with a thin head as usual in costa rica; faint tropical fruit in the nose; light bitterness; thin and simple but not unpleasant

12oz bottle. Comes a clear pale straw color with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, topical, floral, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, stone fruit, floral, and malt. Very nice, very easy to drink.

Drake’s 10k. Gold, clear. No aroma. Flavor is slight citrus hop, but not bitter, and an insipid malt. Just not much there. At least not actively offensive.

Pnigro (15) - COSTA RICA - MAY 10, 2015
Almost no head, little carbonation, but very pleasant taste and smell. This is a pretty amazing beer, very well done. The only downside is that it’s very hard to find.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Bottle at Nayara near La Fortuna. Pours a dark golden color with white head. Citrus, slight mango, slight pils aromas with some floral notes. Fruity, slight passion fruit, malty flavors. A nice golden ale with some nice fruitiness. A nice balance of a beer with a little more flavor than an imperial or pilsen, while still remaining very refreshing for a hotter climate. Enjoyable, I just wish my hotel bar had more than only 2 bottles left.
