bottle @luv burger in samara; at the time of tasting this was the number one ranked beer in costa rica. rich shade of copper with a small pancake dough head and decent lacing; aroma of northwest hops, some amarillo, very pellet-y; plenty of toffeed sweetness, hints of hay; modest bitterness but quite agreeable

hombrepalo (1963) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Aroma is earth, toasted malts and mild caramel. The flavor is toasted malts, fruit, light citrus hops, mild sweetness/sugar notes and a lightly bitter/tart finish. Not bad.

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drake’s 10k. Medium amber. Weird aroma of bready yeast and dusty hops. Flavor matches. But kinda hated this. Just strange, and not in a good way. Not sure what was happening here.

Everyone is right, this is one incredible beer. It is bitter, so in my opinion not for any occasion. It leaves a very pleasant taste in your mouth. Smells very good. Very well done. Probably the best beer in Costa Rica. Hard to find.

12 ounce bottle pours a nice amber red with a hazy head, sampled in Sámara Costa Rica. one of the best craft beers I have tried anywhere in Central America. nice hops and a bit of sweet malt in the finish. Would and have drunk again
