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.

The best beer in Costa Rica, as it slogan says: "Mejor una cerveza, mejor una Pilsen" - (Better a Beer, better a Pilsen)

This is the best beer Costa Rica has to offer. It has a wonderful mix of rice and malts that gives a very regal taste for the country. Not the best beer in the world but it is the best from the region and country.

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.

This is probably as close to Budweiser as you’re going to find in Costa Rica. It’s OK, has twice the alcohol content, and is not too sugary. However, if you can find Pilsen Rojo (Red), it has 6% alcohol and TASTES like a beer!

12oz bottle. Drinking out of the bottle. Nice malt flavor backed up by just enough bitterness. Finishes nice and dry. Lawn mower beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can: in the van from Liberia Airport to Playa Flamingo: while Imperial is the clear favorite the moderatly grainy medium body refreshed me from the physical and mental heat wave one encounters when going from the Northern climnes to the equatorial area. Consumed n roughly 38 seconds. Sweating commences now.

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

Cannette350 ml. 5,1%. Merci Glenn Z. Couleur jaune pâle. Arôme de mais. Goût de céréale, fresh and crisp. Un peu de malt, très rafraîchissante. Bonne lager.

Had a couple of these in Limon; SO hot and humid on the day that a couple of these coldies were most welcome. Tasted a trifle watery and appearance was slightly urine-like. But, better than a swill.
