Ehhh... Had this in Costa Rica, and I tend to factor sentimentality into my reviews. (For example, I love Gallo, but mostly because I had it in Guatemala.) But I can't even muster up any extra love for Imperial just cuz I had it in Jaco before the crowds got there.

A: Pours a pale/golden yellow. Vigorous carbonation. Head vanishes almost instantly. Thin cap of white foam.

S: Metallic, grainy. Mild neutered hop aroma.

T: Metallica up front. Some grainy notes. Adjunct like without the flagrant corn flakes. Aftertaste just drops off. Very clean. Crisp. Dry. No lingering flavor except for a slight metallic hint.

M: Bright, carbonated, light.

O: Pretty much what you would expect. Goes down easily enough. Doesn't absolutely smack of corn, so it has that going for it. Still, subpar at best.
