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.

Tried this beer in Costa Rica.. only when we ran out of Imperial and Pilsen though. It was decent at best, nothing all that outstanding. Flavors were quite mild and somewhat watered down. Better than a Budwiser, but not by much. Of course, being in CR to drink it would definitely help it taste better!

12 oz bottle poured into iced mug

Golden color
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.

like everyone says here, it's a decent beer - given the options in costa rica - heineken and corona are the 'imports' that sit beside it - better than those and good enough on the beaches of manuel antonio - reviewed in this context, a decent beer.

oh well, . . when you hear "Gold" the first thing you think is "the best beer brewed by the company or by the brand" you might think is something special you are drinking... in this case is not that time.

when i say minimun head, im really saying no head at all, it like opening a can of soda... lots of bubbles, thirst quencher etc etc.

good to drink in high temperatures, like my coutry, but CR is not that hot, oh well.
At least it name is use for something, with a gold, not bright but darker color, looks good, 4 tumbs down for the head, no smeel what so ever, mouthfeel is just average, nothing to be impress with.
i mean the beer is not bad, you can probably compare it to some Bud or Coors and drink like 38 in one hour, but that's not the deal here.

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
body: light
Overall: A bit better than its cousin imperial

Pours a beautiful golden color in the glass, crystal clear and just the right carbonation. Tastes better the hotter it gets outside. I give the beer high marks for appearance and aroma, as it has at least a modicum of both. All "hot weather" lagers seem to be lacking something to me.
