Yellow fizzy beer. Of course, if you're in Costa Rica and it's 90 degrees in the shade, ANYTHING below room temperature tastes pretty good.

Not any worse - or better - than other tropical beers. Cool logo, though.

Pours out clear but the head vanishes quickly, smells bland. Nothing exciting.

Review: Bottle of Imperial Pale Lager, 4.60%ABV An interesting lager from Costa Rica, Imperial, a very pleasant refreshing light lager. Appearance was a crystal clear, pale golden straw colour, what a normal looking lager should look like. When pouring a small frothy white appeared that dissipated relatively fast with some lacing remaining. Sweet aroma of lightly toasted malt with corn. Smell was great, very enticing. Similar to the smell, there is a slightly bitter grassy flavour of a creamy aftertaste of dry corn sweetness, that leaves a dry feeling in the mouth Overall, Imperial Beer is a standard, good lager.
