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.

350ml bottle. reasonably common in CR but far behind imperial. had a few of these in bottles and a can or two. aroma is very weak of hops. hard pushed to smell anything else. taste... very fizzy - more so than imperial. very thin in the mouth and rather watery. mixed with rice and malts according to the description but i didn’t notice this.

12 ounce can purchased at the candy shoppe at DoubleTree Puntarenas Resort. Aroma has corn, boiled vegetables, and stinky socks present. Light chlorine/swimming pool, too. Transparent pale yellow body with a small, weak, quickly dissipating white head present. Starts a little sweet, before becoming a little malty and milky. Light corny DMS in the middle. Finishes with a bit of cereal graininess. Eh, ok.

Tired in Costa Rica, Puerto Viejo. Purchased at Supermercado Diamante, 1 liter bottle for 1,450 colones (= $2.90). Brewery: Costa Rica. Beer: Pilsen. ABV: 5.1%. Colour: medium light gold. Head: short. Aroma: faintly sweet. Taste: mildly sweet and faintly hoppy. Summary: tastes like a simple and cheap American Lager, maybe also a Pilsner, mildly refreshing but no character. It’s better than Imperial (who apparently spend money on massive advertising rather than quality production).

Kita (1894) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2013
Canned, 0.35l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy white head and average visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, malt is weak, unfortunatelly some skunky smell is present, too. Taste starts with fresh malt, softened by adjuncts, then followed with grassy undertones. Although plain, some malt spiciness is felt in the mouthfeel, while finish is mildly bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Same as others Tico beers, nothing special...

Color amarillo, ligeramente palido para una pilsen, espuma poco duradera, buena carbonatación. Amargo con intensidad media y buena calidad. Sabor a malta, ligeramente dulce, aroma a lupulo. Lata y botella en mercado y retaurantes en Costa Rica.
