1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A golden lager with a thick receding white head. In aroma, an unpleasant mix of corn adjunct and light sulfur, not very nice. In mouth, a light sweet corn malt with light grassy hops, boring and lacking. Bottle from Auto Mercado, San Jose.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Found inside a fridge while investigating a random corner bar in Punteranus, Costa Rica on 29th March 2014. It was drier than it’s stable mates I also tried (Imperial and Silver) and I thought a better thirst quencher with a bit of style to it’s make up. Crisp, bright and clean with a hop bitterness the others failed to have: very little aroma though.

liter bottle in Playa Samara, I love that they recycle and reuse the glass bottles here. Taste is much more present than the other national Tiko beer, faint malt a bit of grassy hops, solid beer for the price, excellent for drinking on the beach. The ABV is also higher than Imperial so there is really no reason to drink Imperial... Will be putting more of these back during my stay
