Now a days you can get this beer at any supermarket in Costa Rica, is a really non-expensive beer for being an import. I have tried this beer many times and it didn´t impress me much, but recently I had a couple and I thought It was pretty decent.

Bottle poured into a glass

Golden color with no carbonation and a thin white foam cap. No lacings

Faint malt and more of hops aroma.

Light to medium light mouthfeel. Malt, hops and fresh beer yeast taste. Grassy. No aftertaste . Clean , crisp and quaffable. Classic pilsener beer taste. Would have another.

Good head that lingers for some time. Bright golden colour.
Malty aroma with some hops. It has a very balanced taste between the sweetness from its maltand the bitterness from its hops. Bitterness lingers in the after taste. Faithful, actually a master recipe for its style.

12oz bottle into a glass.

A- Yellowish golden with hardly a cap from a hard pour, no lacing.

S- European hops, some grassy scents, maybe some lemons, malted barley, a simple nose from a simple style.

T- A bit better than anticipated, bright earthy hops give a grassy taste with a bit of grain in the back. A good amount of pale malt leaving for a rather sweet finish with some corn and a bit of bread.

M- Light and hardly carbed, this is smooth and goes down easy. The body is light and where it needs to be at. The grainy malty aftertaste lingers a bit than leaves just as quick. In and out.

D- On a hot day, a German Pils is what the doctor ordered, yet I still cant drink more than two without yearning for something else. They all pretty much taste the same no matter who brews it. The fresher the better.
