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.
