COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sampled in a 1 liter bottle while journaling my Costa Rican exploits in the shadow of the towering Vulcan Arenal in la Fortuna, Costa Rica. Mild lager with somewhat of a malt kick. Otherwise its carbonated, gold, non-descript beer available at your local pub anwhere on the planet.

i ordered this one last week in costa rica...didnt even know there were any other beers then imperial....i saw a lady across the bar order it and it was almost frozen....sold me. this one is bit more corn sweet flavors then the counterparts. i think the abv above is wrong as well, seems like i read it had slightly over 5% unless they make more then one. amazing heineken is even making swill in costa rica...minus the green bottles.

Not bad, golden color with a sourness to it. Light body. I like it better than Imperial.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle in Costa Rica. Pale, fizzy, bitter beer, I’m guessing made of rice and, to me, similar to Bud, just with better head.

jazz88 (2579) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Bottle from a March 2004 trip to Costa Rica. One shade of yellow short of clear. An almost painful flavor with minimal yeast aroma. Cardboard, dry, and not refreshing.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 11, 2004
A pretty bland, watery lager with a slightly bitter finish. Not very good at all. If you’re in Costa Rica, I’d stick with the Imperial.

SpringsLicker (3214) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2004
This pours beautifully. Crystal clear golden beer with a merengue head. The hops aroma is sour and sharp, unpleasant. It has a somewhat sour taste, but not as bad as the aroma has prepared you for. Thin, somewhat chalky mouthfeel, but not a real lot of any maltiness. Maybe a slight grainyness, but that's it. Luckily no finish either.

larsniclas (5852) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2004
Bottled. Golden with a frothy head. A bit sour, pungent aroma with some maltiness. Rather flat and sweet with notes of malt.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2004
Bottled. Golden. Aroma is dominated by maize, some malt is there as well. Flavour ha some malt surface but then again maize. At least better(and maltier) than Imperial.
