Bottle courtesy of Sebastian Yancovic Pakarati, back from Costa Rica. Pale yellow, big white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is, as expected, a very thin layer of cereal with only a tiny little bit of herbal hints. Nothing offensive, just incredibly bland. Taste is watery with traces of cereal sweetness. I didn't expect more to be honest. Light body. Refreshing. The prototypical Latin American macro pale lager. Piepenhenrich (1171) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
Reasonable Lager. A decent, refreshing sip on the road in Costa Rica, yet from a global perspective just an average Lager. MrBunn (2844) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Can. Pour is a light straw color with a fizzy head and aromas of bread dough. Flavor is adjunct crap beer. Not much redeeming about this one and I’m usually pretty easy going on national beers I have with my feet in the sand. This one is a stinker.

Rica. Amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is malty with a little dryness. The flavour is sweet with some dryness. Overall quite a poor pale lager.

Poured clear golden with a small white ring. Aroma of grainy malt. Medium body, pretty generic lager.

Had it a couple of times while on holiday in Costa Rica. Bland, boring, metally, your typica holiday pilsner. I liked Imperial a bit more too. mike67 (1244) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2015
12 oz. Pours pale straw with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and pale malt. Body is light and crisp. Pale malt and grassy hops combine on the palate. Finish is short and dry. Good to try once. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2015
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 (1971) - 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.
