This is a pretty trashy czech pilsner. It tastes smells and feels much more like an adjunct lager. Looks pale yellow, with big carbonation and a head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells crisp and malty, plus metallic and a little rotten. Tastes a little better then it smells, but still not good. The hops are a little redeeming but the boringness of the malt character and the rotten veggies that inhabit the aftertaste are quite annoying. Oh well. When in costa rica, options for good beer are seriously limited. Seriously.

12 oz can brought back by a good friend from his trip to Costa Rica, Thanks for the opportunity Rob!
Pours a solid golden yellow with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of sweet pilsner malt with hints of grain honey and enough hops to keep it from cloying. Sweet rich grainy malt with a slight floral hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slightly sweet mouthfeel. I liked this best of the three beers we sampled at our impromptu Central America lager fest. Decent beer for the style but could have really used some more hops.
