Pours clear gold with minute long bright white head. The aroma has notes of over sweet malts mixing with a bit of floral and earthy hops. The taste has a carbonation enhanced bite of bitter hops and a touch of acidity. About midway earthiness makes some noise for a moment our two. Behind the initial burst are mild notes of sweet and grainy malts. It smells like a beer that will quickly end up too sweet but it really never does. dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
clear pale yellow, slight white head, some lacing. nose of grain, sugary corn. flavor is sweet corn, almost syrupy. not very complex, indeed, quite unimpressive. light bodied, oily mouth feel, sweetish finish. not cloying, but not very refreshing. i tried a very cold bottle, and the flavor was more like candy corn. i got a 6 pack at liquor depot in monee. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of corn wtih some graininess. Tastes of the same. Thin and watery body. thornecb (5906) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head recedes to scum surface. Corn aromas. Flat and nonexistent. Lasting water finish. It’s hard to believe they snuck 4+% into this beer. However, it doesn’t taste bad. douglas88 (9174) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that goes down to next to nothing. The aroma is sweet malts and some honey. The taste is your typical pale lager; lots of adjuncts, corn and some sweet malts. Oddly a bit of alcohol in the taste. Still, my first from Costa Rica!

Bottle. Surprisingly ok. Pretty clearly a mass produced lager, but some interesting honey sweetness and a bit of malt offset an otherwise fairly watery and predictable affair. Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Simply put, this is dull corny cardboard with a sweet finish. Terrible and pointless. At least I’ve rated something from Costa Rica! afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2008
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 (4894) - 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.
