Bottle at hotel in Costa Rica. Enjoyable here, but at home this would not suffice. Light exotic fruits, some bitterness and caramel. Ok, I guess,

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.

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.
