2.94/5 rDev -3.9%
from the pilsners' in CR this would be the best, is refreshing and crisp, light yellow color, with a white heat without retention, easy to drink in tropical Costa Rica.
Nose: slightly malty with a hint of hops
Overall: A bit better than its cousin imperial

12 oz bottle poured into iced mug
Fresh clean taste. Bittreness is somewhat timid, this is not distinctive but smooth, refreshing and drinkable. Very smooth and refreshing. Subtle for a pilsener. A step above the ubiquitous Imperial that one finds everywhere in this country.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color pils with a small bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light corn notes and balanced residual sugars is OK. Taste is quite bland with light adjunct notes and a dry aftertaste. Refreshing while drunk under the hot Costa Rican sun but really quite bland overall.

A- Transparent yellow/gold with a bright white head. Some lacing.
S- Toasty malt, grass.
T- Bold malt, balanced well.. not to bitter.
M- Thin bodied, refreshing carbonation on the palate.
D- Easy drinker here. I'm sure a few of these are easy to consume on a hot day in Coasta Rica.

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 - 3.5.
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.

Being held captive with a limited beer selection in C.R. Bavaria Gold is by far my favorite of the national beers. Poured into the glass its appearance varies depending on how much detergent residue is present (not a lot of commercial dishwashers in C.R.) but when I have the control, it pours with nice carbonation, a clean crisp golden color with a nice head (not super creamy though).
You'll pick up some subtle hop aromas and a touch of maltiness. I find it very smooth to drink and with a bit more consistent flavor than Imperial (proper beer storage is also a problem here). Sometimes it is kept in refrigerators below freezing, if so, give it a few seconds to bask in the warmth of the Costa Rican air so more of its true flavors come out. Of course don't wait too long or you'll have a pretty warm beer on your hands.
Overall a nice beer for drinking pool or beach side, or simply out with friends.
