COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Kita (2068) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2013
Canned, 0.35l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy white head and average visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, malt is weak, unfortunatelly some skunky smell is present, too. Taste starts with fresh malt, softened by adjuncts, then followed with grassy undertones. Although plain, some malt spiciness is felt in the mouthfeel, while finish is mildly bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Same as others Tico beers, nothing special...

Color amarillo, ligeramente palido para una pilsen, espuma poco duradera, buena carbonatación. Amargo con intensidad media y buena calidad. Sabor a malta, ligeramente dulce, aroma a lupulo. Lata y botella en mercado y retaurantes en Costa Rica.

12oz bottle. Drinking out of the bottle. Nice malt flavor backed up by just enough bitterness. Finishes nice and dry. Lawn mower beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly better than Imperial (also from my country), I’d rather drink almost anything than an Imperial, that’s why I would prefer a Pilsen instead... still not a very good beer.

350ml can brought back by my co-worker, who went back recently to visit his homeland. Pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is typical for the style with grass and grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with some light underlying sweetness and a bit of a funky aftertaste. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Nothing special, just another uninteresting macro lager brw.

First beer in Costa Rica. Hopefully it gets better from here. Had this at a truck stop on the chicken bus route I took from the Panamanian border to San Jose. Kinda sour, a bit of a foul aftertaste. Ghetto-looking bottle.

Bottle. Has a flavor like Budwieser, though a little lighter. Definitely taste the rice presence.

350 ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a half-inch white head that stays for about 2 minutes. Crystal clear with small bubbles. Smell of adjuncts (corn) with a little bit of hops. Not very attractive. Tastes exactly as it smells - cooked corn with a slight touch of hops in the finish. Light bodied and watery. Mouthfeel is not very pleasant. Bubbles bite in the front, hops hardly balancing the grain (and corn). Beer is drinkable though despite the low scoring.

The pour: quite heady and effervescent. A very light straw in colour. The aroma: very feint, some sugary malts, possibly apple and a bit of barley. The taste: thin mouth feel, slightly bitter, quite a flat taste. The verdict: Costa Rica’s 2nd place beer. I haven’t really seen any Ticos drinking this. Nothing particularly good can be found in this beer.
