2.85/5 rDev +3.3%
Bottle into Pilsner glass
A -Pours a clear golden straw color that has a frothy head. Head is slightly creamier than most light lagers that I have seen. Head dissipates somewhat slowly at first but picks up the pace as time goes on. Seems to be somewhat lightly carbonated. 3.5/5
S - Mostly a base malt aroma with a hint of hops at the end. Corn. There is an undertone of rice. Very little hop aroma. There is something else to the aroma that I can't quite place… Possibly somewhat skunked… Hint of yeast. 2.5/5
T - Malt and grain centered, but very lightly flavored. Light bitterness from the hops on the back end. Hops are somewhat floral. Hint of corn. Maybe a bit of white bread. Not a whole lot going on here. 2.5/5
M - Very light and dry. Hard to tell that there was anything in my mouth once it's been swallowed. Some carbonation but not a lot. 3/5
O - Very light tasting, light feeling beer. Can't say that I will ever buy this again in the US considering all of the other, cheaper light beers available. Hard to pay $10 for 6 when it's comparable in enjoyment to Miller Lite, etc. Happy to have had the chance to try it though. 2.75/5

Twelve ounce brown bottle. Best before date on neck: 30 Jan 2015.
A: Pours a clear straw yellow under a 1/4-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and spots of lace.
N: Corn, malt, yeast, some floral, faint citrus and grass/hay.
T: Crisp and clean, malty/grainy, yeasty. Simple and fairly bland.
M: Light body and semi-medium carbonation. Semi-dry, yeasty and malty finish.
O: Straight forward and singular. Pura Vida.

3.19/5 rDev +15.6%
A: Golden filtered, moderate random rising carbonation, a finger of white head.
S: Malts like a Helles Lager, skunk, sweet corn.
T: Light and crisp, light malt, light canned corn, light offal.
M: Light body, foamy carbonation. Crisp dry finish.
O: A typical beer for this style, I’ve never had a beer from Costa Rica before, so when I found this at Whole Foods in Savannah, I was glad to have a chance to try it. Well done for the style, just nothing outstanding in a craft beer world. Drank at Cocoa Beach, FL, July 10th
