This beer has a somewhat more noticeable bitterness, and its mixture of malts and rice makes it rather dry. With a refreshing feeling, balanced bouquet and full body, it works very well as an accompaniment to food. Pilsen has been on the national beer market since 1888.

One of the ubiquitous beers in Costa Rica. It has a rather strong alcohol smell and its taste is very strong, and quite bitter. It tries to be dark, without the flavor. Not bad with food, but not great in and of itself.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2010
Bright and clear yellow-gold with a fairly generous white head. Even getting some textbook lace. Delicate, sweetish cereal nose with hints of corn and metal. Light bitterness but thankfully quite dry compared to Bavaria or Imperial for example, which can both be a touch sweet. Some nutty notes in the backtaste. Absurdly clean. If you think you are craving one of these, in fact your body may be crying out for some nice cool water. Which is probably the secret of light pale lagers in the first place.

DSG (12189) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden. Aroma has some sweet graininess (corn) and some hops with light flowery and grassy hints. Sweetish bready flavor with some cereals and a bitter, slightly metallic, finish. Light-bodied. Better than I expected.

tomer (3067) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 17, 2010
At a tasting, thanks Zvikar, little head, clear pale yellow colour, a light hoppy aroma, some sulphur which becomes stronger in time, and a touch of vanila. Sweetish with a touch of bitterness, both fading away leaving a diluted watery sensation.
