COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Costa Ricans have been enjoying this beer since 1924. Imperial is created from a balanced formula combining malts, grains and hops, without a pronounced overtone in its taste. It is what is known as a “centralized” beer. Adapted to a warm and spring-like climate, Imperial is Florida’s most popular and widely accepted beer, both nationally and internationally, and has thus become the favorite beer of Costa Rica.

12oz bottle purchased at Bank’s Liquors in Franklin, DE. Served in a shaker glass. Very pale yellow body with a small pile of foam on one side of the liquid. Smells of corn and apples. Sweet dull flat taste, mostly corn. Easy drinking, but then so is water.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, gold body with a thin, white head. Smell: Mixture of pale malts and waterlogged corn kernels with some light floral hop hints. Taste: Weak pale maltiness alongside a sweetish corn flavor. Floral hops imparting a very light bitterness. Grows evermore watery as you race towards the finish. Tiny hint of metal right at the very end. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: You’ve gotta equally water down your expectations for these lackluster, foreign lager, but even still this was a disappointment.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a clear pale with a small almost non existent head. Smells of tons of corn and not much malt. First sip is corn and more corn with a not much hop presence. Very light bodied and typical of beers from Latin America. Pretty bad stuff…hardly worth boiling hot dogs in.

Golden pour minimal head. Tastes and smells of watery corn, light cereal and flowery notes. This brew has not too much going for it other than it is easily quaffed and it really does seem to improve when you are drinking it in Costa Rica.

hayduke (5025) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 27, 2008
From a 12 oz bottle from the North Coast Coop in Arcata, CA this poured a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose of malts and hops. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is corn and grassy hops. No finish at all. Like most beers of this type, it is drinkable if very cold.

Most anything taste good at a resort on vacation. The locals rave about Imperial. Quenshes the thirst and no more. No real flavor good or bad.

Bottle at the Rendezvous, St. Augustine, FL. Poured a clear pale color with an average frotthy white head that diminished quickly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light body with a thin texture. Light sweet flavor with soft sweet finish of short duration. Below average beer.
