First beer in Costa Rica. Hopefully it gets better from here. Had this at a truck stop on the chicken bus route I took from the Panamanian border to San Jose. Kinda sour, a bit of a foul aftertaste. Ghetto-looking bottle.

Bottle. Has a flavor like Budwieser, though a little lighter. Definitely taste the rice presence.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
350 ml bottle.
Pours a pale yellow with a half-inch white head that stays for about 2 minutes. Crystal clear with small bubbles.
Smell of adjuncts (corn) with a little bit of hops. Not very attractive.
Tastes exactly as it smells - cooked corn with a slight touch of hops in the finish. Light bodied and watery.
Mouthfeel is not very pleasant. Bubbles bite in the front, hops hardly balancing the grain (and corn). Beer is drinkable though despite the low scoring.

The pour: quite heady and effervescent. A very light straw in colour. The aroma: very feint, some sugary malts, possibly apple and a bit of barley. The taste: thin mouth feel, slightly bitter, quite a flat taste. The verdict: Costa Rica’s 2nd place beer. I haven’t really seen any Ticos drinking this. Nothing particularly good can be found in this beer.

12 oz can brought back by a good friend from his trip to Costa Rica, Thanks for the opportunity Rob!
Pours a solid golden yellow with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of sweet pilsner malt with hints of grain honey and enough hops to keep it from cloying. Sweet rich grainy malt with a slight floral hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slightly sweet mouthfeel. I liked this best of the three beers we sampled at our impromptu Central America lager fest. Decent beer for the style but could have really used some more hops.

This beer is ok. It is one of the beers you can get everywhere in Costa Rica. I would say it is like Bud back home. If you want cheap and easy to drink Pilsen all the way.

Can. Clear yellow pour, fizzy white head. Aroma of subtle corn, no hops. Taste is fine, nothing wrong but nothing worth mentionning either, slightly grainy, dry, very light hop presence. Palate is light and super carbed. Refreshing and not bad. Costa Rica tick!

Ok for a domestic. A little but more of an edge then imperial, Costa Ricas other beer. Smells slightly nicer then average. Look is pee yellow. A little stronger then imperial. Drinkable.
