Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer is a crystal clear golden color with a thick white head. The aroma is big on grain and has very little hop to it. The taste is fairly weak with an AAL grain flavor. Bottom line, this is a good beer to drink when you want to drink a lot of beer. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2015
12oz bottles. Prefer it over the Imperial but not the Bavaria. Dark yellow, Big Foamy head. Mild citrus aroma. Clean tasting, with a fruity note. Finishes with a crisp hop bite. Pnigro (15) - COSTA RICA - MAR 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 As a Costa Rican I have to give this beer a good rating. It is my favorite of all the widely commercially available beers over here. It is incredibly refreshing and absolutely perfect for hot weather. I always drink this beer at the beach straight from the can and it’s one of the best experiences ever. It’s bitter, not sweet at all, but very drinkable on most situations. Also, for someone who’s not very tolerant to alcohol like me, it’s very easy on the stomach. Hangover is minimal.
On the negative side, well, the beer is nothing extraordinary. Aroma is very mild. Appearance is "piss yellow" as described by some, with a minimal head that doesn’t last long. Doesn’t go well with food at all. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Pale gold, good frothy white head, modest lacing / Weak nose of CO2 and corn / Medium body, low carbonation, moderately sweet, hint of hops, not much on finish / Simple corn flavor / Not objectionable, just very simple, so likely decent if drunk real cold on a hot day. simon4 (12) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2015
Costa Ricaanse pils. Bitterder en lekkerder dan Imperial. Bevat rijst. Zwak voorkomen.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Bottle enjoyed poolside in Costa Rica. Pours a golden color with white head. Corn, grainy, pils, slight grass, slight bitter aromas and flavors. Probably my least favorite off the 3 common Costa Rican lagers where I’m staying, but still not too bad. Tca21 (51) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2014

Light straw yellow, thick head. No nose whatsoever....which I guess means it doesn’t stink. Some light corn, unclean finish, but not offensive, just extraordinarily plain.
