Ahora si..! siento una verdadera, unica y profunda cerveza y hecha en Costa Rica..? despues de probar la Segua..me recuerda mucho mis salidas nocturnas fuera del campus y visitar con las amigas nuestro pub preferido, donde la imaginacion, la presentacion se llena en cada pinta a probar de una barra de selectas cervezas artesanales (por supuesto no aqui)...Me llamo mucho la atencion del logo (al igual que Libertas), se presta para la conversacion y la tiene..aromas a masa madre (sourdough), floral, de un color profundo, efervescente. Sabor amargo, a cerveza artesanal con una espuma que merece producirla en cada sorbo con una ligera movida direccional del vaso. Simplemente no es posible de solo tomarse una...

A very good red ale. Not too bitter and has an AMAZING aroma. I really wish this beer was available I the US. I would drink it very often if it were. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Certainly a different beer to what is massively produced in CR. With its thicker hoppier taste it appeals to be the bitter beer lover in some of us. perfect match with seafood and cold nights

Draft: Very nice malt & hop balance could easily be an American Pale Ale. Sweetness with herbal hop taste. Food Pairing: Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.

The pour: on tap, ruby or copper in colour with thin white head. Nice lacing. The aroma: very hoppy (particularly for Costa Rica), a nice pine with citrus rind and a few metallic notes. The taste: full bodied with a bold bitterness. Finishes dry. The verdict: another great find from CR’s CBC.

33cl bottle transported to Europe from God’s own country by a Thirsty Pilgrim. Drinking this in Costa Rica must take you a step closer to paradise but even in the Cambridgeshire fen it kicks some butt, or rather cask. Orange-red, clear and clean, with an understated hop but barley-rich and highly drinkable. Craft beer knocks off its 55th country.

Poured from a bottle, thanks to Craig. Notes that are caramely, hoppy, bitter, floral, bready. Not bad.

Nice red pour with a khaki head, good clarity. Aroma of toasty malts, a touch of hops, bread. Toasty and biscuit flavors, slight sweetness, nice hop balance. Nice brew.

Bottle: first beer on my trip to Costa Rica. having traveled in central America before I am shocked to see a craft beer. This has a nice hoppy bite to it but isn’t overpowering.

A good red. Pours dark golden with white head. Smell is great, hint of bananas. Taste is good, a little fruity, slightly creamy, with a hippy aftertaste. Had on tap at Volcano Brewing Company in Costa Rica. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
