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.

12oz bottles. Prefer it over the Imperial but not the Bavaria. Dark yellow, Big Foamy head. Mild citrus aroma. Clean tasting, with a fruity note. Finishes with a crisp hop bite.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 As a Costa Rican I have to give this beer a good rating. It is my favorite of all the widely commercially available beers over here. It is incredibly refreshing and absolutely perfect for hot weather. I always drink this beer at the beach straight from the can and it’s one of the best experiences ever. It’s bitter, not sweet at all, but very drinkable on most situations. Also, for someone who’s not very tolerant to alcohol like me, it’s very easy on the stomach. Hangover is minimal. On the negative side, well, the beer is nothing extraordinary. Aroma is very mild. Appearance is "piss yellow" as described by some, with a minimal head that doesn’t last long. Doesn’t go well with food at all.

Pale gold, good frothy white head, modest lacing / Weak nose of CO2 and corn / Medium body, low carbonation, moderately sweet, hint of hops, not much on finish / Simple corn flavor / Not objectionable, just very simple, so likely decent if drunk real cold on a hot day.

Ernest (6836) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), with notes of DMS and gasoline. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty typical swill lager, very dirty and industrial.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Bottle enjoyed poolside in Costa Rica. Pours a golden color with white head. Corn, grainy, pils, slight grass, slight bitter aromas and flavors. Probably my least favorite off the 3 common Costa Rican lagers where I’m staying, but still not too bad.

Light straw yellow, thick head. No nose whatsoever....which I guess means it doesn’t stink. Some light corn, unclean finish, but not offensive, just extraordinarily plain.
