Bought and tasted in Costa Rica - side to side with Imperial, Pilsen and Bavaria Gold.
A: All were fine for the style with good carbonation that produced a nice head. 4s all around.
S: Imperial had a strong cooked corn smell with other vegetal notes - 2.5. Pilsen had light vegetal notes but mostly a simple grainy aroma - 3.0. Bavaria had no discernable vegetal or off notes and had a simple grainy aroma.
T: Imperial was a touch harsh at the front with bitterness and hotness. Refreshing the rest of the way through. 2.5. Pilsen was simple throughout, but refreshing. Light bitterness. 3.0. Bavaria was the least bitter and had a touch more focus on bready malts (just barely). 3.5.
M: Imperial came on slightly strong but was otherwise fine. 3.0. Pilsen - 3.5. Bavaria - 3.5.
D: Given that these are meant for a hot Costa Rican day, they all drink well. I'll give a slight nod to Pilsen and Bavaria. Imperial - 3.5. Pilsen and Bavaria - 4.0.

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.
