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.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Had in a bottle outside San Jose. Hazy golden pour and has some nice tropical notes and fruitiness but it then gives way to a weaker malt backbone. Not a bad beer, especially given CRs beer options.

on tap at volcano brewery in tilaran. was a cloudy yellow with thin head. aroma of flowers and citrus. from memory, taste was good. think this was the one that was better than the others in fact. refreshingly different from crappy CR lagers
