3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is our first night in Costa Rica and the hotel market had this in the cooler, so we tasted a couple of bottles. This opens with a fragrant hoppy aroma and finishes with a balanced malt and hoppy bitterness. A nice find in a country not known for it’s craft beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour: on tap, ruby or copper in colour with thin white head. Nice lacing. The aroma: very hoppy (particularly for Costa Rica), a nice pine with citrus rind and a few metallic notes. The taste: full bodied with a bold bitterness. Finishes dry. The verdict: another great find from CR’s CBC.

A very good red ale. Not too bitter and has an AMAZING aroma. I really wish this beer was available I the US. I would drink it very often if it were.
