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 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.

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]

Deeper yellow with minimal white head. Lots of grainy cereal. This was very drinkable and my second favourite in Costa Rica after Imperial.

This was the beer I drank nearly everyday in CR. Really not a bad beer. Clear yellow light Malty nose. Lightly sweet malts not too complex but fresh and tasty. The fresh ones surpass the graininess of older ones. But a decent malt profile and pretty decent.

One of the better beers in Costa Rica. Actually had a decent malt profile. I seemed to get more crunk pounding these.
