A: Extremely light yellow, very very watery-looking. Fizzy white head fades and leaves no lacing. A few lazy loose bubbles rise.
S: I could smell the skunk the moment I opened the bottle. Corn and malt. This truly is not appetizing.
T: A slight step up from the nose: watery filler malts (corn, rice), it still has a classic sessionable light beer flavor. As uninspired as the flavor are, the drinkability is through the roof- I almost accidentally drained this thing in one gulp.
M: Light bodied in the extreme, the rather high carbonation is all that lets me know this isn't water or malt-tea.
O: Like corn? Like water? Drink up.
(Really not a BAD beer, but don't expect any innovation. This is a drinkable, unoffensively flavored, mindless gulping beer.)

Cerveza Imperial was my beer of choice while visiting Costa Rica, it was quite refreshing and hit the spot when exploring the various areas of the countryside and myriad of beaches. Pours watery, with a light yellow sparkling appearance, and usually had a small frothy head that dissipated relatively fast. It was easy to drink, had hints of grains, cereals, and grasses, and it did have a mild aftertaste. Light filling, easy to palate, average alc. content.
The most available Central American produced beer in the United States. I have procured it in Chicago (IL), Berwyn (IL), Oak Park (IL), Champaign (IL), Edinburg (TX), and McAllen (TX). I also consumed it all over Costa Rica....
