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.

[email protected] 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Costa Ricaanse pils. Bitterder en lekkerder dan Imperial. Bevat rijst. Zwak voorkomen.

Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), with notes of DMS and gasoline. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty typical swill lager, very dirty and industrial.
