After tasting the Costa Rica Red Ale, we decided to try this blonde ale. A little bit lighter than the red with a tropical fruity presence. The deliciously drinkable ale is very refreshing.

Discovered on tap at La Davino Comida in San Jose, CR. Pours a medium gold with a medium white head with decent retention. Aroma of sweet bread, white grapes, and mild tropical fruits. Flavor to match. Moderate body. A really enjoyable brew. A good start for Costa Rican craft breweries.

A very good beer for style. Either that or I’ve had too much trash recently. Smells of crisp barley and a little floral hops. Pours dark gold with good lacing. Carbonation is pretty high. Taste is a little bitter and crisp. Went all the way to the brewery to try this and they wouldn’t sell me less than 24, so had to walk a km down the road to this place called Quijongoby the gas station on the main road. Bottle.
