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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cans in Costa Rica. Miller-lightish, mildly offensive. Costa Rica is not a place for beer drinkers.

cans. tallboys on the beach (33% gratis!!). it’s actually one of the better factory-made lagers from Florida Ice Company (they make ice! rock ice!), but I found it a tad less flavorful and enjoyable than Imperial. pale yellow in color. as a quenching but simple off-dry mild hop buzz, mostly clean, entirely simple. bigger body than many of the shit-tier pagers from this factory which scores it points.

Eh this was pretty bad, not much to it even though i wasnt expecting much. Would stick to Imperial in CR.

Can from Sandy O. "La Cerveza Rubia". 5.1% Pours gold with a transient white head. It smells bready and herby. Med body. It is bready, and it’s sort of smooth herb/veg. Definitely on the dry side. But hop flavor?

Well there’s nothing special about this one, but it is much better than Imperial. Pours light golden. Malt, corn, and hop aroma. Similar flavor with some rice. Rice and corn beer finish. At least it’s not sold where I live, so I don’t have to see it again.

This appears to be the #2 beer in Costa Rica, and it is an improvement over #1 (Imperial), but that is not saying much. An unimpressive pilsener that is very light on the hops. Some people I ran into on the road liked it a lot.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Enjoyed alternately from 1 liter bottles and 6-packs of cans while in Costa Rica. Pours clear and fizzy; yellow water. Aromas of stale corn, grass, and adjunct. The flavor is wheat and corn, lightly sweet and trending toward a mildly bitter grassy finish. Medium carbonation and thin. Overall, really not bad, probably my beverage of choice while there, and great for a hot day on the beach. [729]
