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.

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.

Bottled. Golden with a frothy head. A bit sour, pungent aroma with some maltiness. Rather flat and sweet with notes of malt.

rickgordon (3844) - 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.

Pale, very light head. Minimal aroma of faint hops. Thin flavour. Slight hop bitterness in the finish.

Am I the only one who thinks this is OK??? Despite the cow manure nose, the body is well balanced and mildly sour. Not unexpectedly a dry corny finish. Better than the Imperial IMO.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2005 RERATE: I love Pilsen. I really don’t know what to say. I love it. I could drink it all the time. Hot, cold, luke warm. I really don’t care. I’ve had it all ways. It’s sooo good in the Costa Rican heat.

I liked it slightly better than Imperial. Still utter crap, tho.

Imperial is definitely the better Costa Rican beer.

The dying body of a beer…Hop-amputated with canceriginous malt…
