Ok, this bottle claims to be 5.1 % ABV, not 4.5 %, but whatever, In general, refer to my review of Cerveza Imperial, and then add the following: "Slightly better than Cerveza Imperial, and more booze too." phaleslu (10889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2009
475 ml can. I thought this one had a bit of a nasty taste to it, kind of like a Milwaukee’s Best or something comparable. Minimal aroma, both aroma and flavor are a little skunky. Imperial is brewed by the same company and certainly more readily available than this one, so I see no reason to go with this one other than to say you’ve had it.

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. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
When your in CR this is the beer you choose when you’re going for maximum buzz, it’s got a little more kick than the imperial. Other than that... it basically tastes like a bad malt liquor. theisti (4236) - Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2009
350 ml can enjoyed after a Canopy Tour / Zip Line excursion. Pour is clear golden with a one inch white head. Aroma of malt and corn. The corn smells grainy and unnatural. Taste is a bit cleaner than the nose, but is still the malt and corn. Palate is thin, a touch watery with a finish that featured the corn in an unpleasant way.

canned 5,1%; courtesy of DomTom - clear and bright golden colour with a fast collapsing foam, aroma of corn, plastic and oily hops; medium-bodied, dry and quite harsh; rather long corny finish - cheap and bad stuff cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Golden, watery,corny, best served cold and with some local food on or near a beach. Typical Central American Lager. gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Nothing tastes bad at a resort in costa rica. But this was the worst of the two local offerings. I love corn but now I know I do not like my beer to taste and smell like it. rcasta (874) - EL SALVADOR - JUL 28, 2008
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. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2008
(Bottle) A friend brought be a bottle of this from a Costa Rican vacation. Aroma of corn and other light grains. Taste is very similar, with a dry finish. A better body than the other Costa Rican pale lager I sampled, but still leaves plenty to be desired.
