Izio (77) - GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Color rojizo, buena carbonatacion, buena espuma pero poco estable, con aromas a cebada tostada que se opacan por el lupulo. Amargo remanente que opaca un poco el resto de los sabores. Le falta algo de cuerpo. Una Ale muy ligera. El amargo le quita drinkability. Botella en bar @ San Jose ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Hotel Belmar, Monteverde. Clear amber, small head. Bready nose with roses and grapefruit. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Crystal malt and toast, slight citrus hops. Mid bittet finish. Nicely balanced.

Pours a nice caramel red, very nice hoppy/malty aroma for the style. Almost comes off like a pale ale with how hoppy I found it. Best you’ll find in this country

This is our first night in Costa Rica and the hotel market had this in the cooler, so we tasted a couple of bottles. This opens with a fragrant hoppy aroma and finishes with a balanced malt and hoppy bitterness. A nice find in a country not known for it’s craft beers.
