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.

Golden color, small white head. Grainy, papery, sweet malty nose. Quite watery, mostly grainy industrial flavor. Typical cheap lager and propably the worst of three Costa Rican main brands.

Pours a very light yellow color with a thin head that vanishes instantly. Smells like corn and tastes like water. Sadly, that makes it the best beer Costa Rica has to offer.

From bottle. Aroma was beer. You know, that general "beer" smell. No extra hop or malt or yeast smell. Just plain beer. Taste was slightly metallic, but decently hoppy, slightly bitter, but very smooth. Decent beer. At least better than Imperial.

Bottle. Pale yellow with little head. Not much aroma. Taste thin and very average for a pale lager. Boring

Brought back from Costa Rica From my pal Irishcarbomber(Aaron) better than expected, some sweetness to it, but all in all decent drinking. Some corn, Carbonation, stickiness to it, but drinkable, as good as an american macro, I’d probably choose this one! ok.

The worst of the Costan Rican beers I have tasted. Skunky aroma. Fizzy, light yellow, extremely carbonated, a typical latin american pale lager. Skunk all over.

This is the best beer Costa Rica has to offer. It has a wonderful mix of rice and malts that gives a very regal taste for the country. Not the best beer in the world but it is the best from the region and country.

The best beer in Costa Rica, as it slogan says: "Mejor una cerveza, mejor una Pilsen" - (Better a Beer, better a Pilsen)

Tried this one years ago in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. Not nearly as popular as Imperial in country, but similar in style and content. I actually found it to be a bit more flavorful than its big brother, but its still just a pale lager. Superior to most American macros. Refreshing on those hot, hot Costa Rican afternoons and evenings.
