this one wasnt bad either, pretty similar to imperial, but a little fuller bodied and sort of generally beerier, whatever that means, less adjuncty and more hearty a little bit, i liked this one probably second best behind the pilsen of the national stuff these guys make. big foamy white head on a crystal clear but not super light looking golden beer, tastes like some of the canadian lagers, with just a little more substantial of a malt base than the imperial line, and still quite cris in the finish with a little sweetness there and a faint note of the lager yeast is all. clean and simple beer, a touch more satisfying, but also kind of lousy when it warms up, so its one to drink quickly. i liked the high carbonation this had, and thought i could even get a light bittering hop, european and sort of stale, but a hop note there nevertheless. probably not the hot weather pounder, at least for me, but a nice start the evening kind of beer and perhaps better in some food contexts than some of the less flavored stuff they make. in its category, i really had no issue with the gold at all, and actually quite enjoyed it.

350 ml can poured into a tumbler.

A- Gold and clear. Effervescent. 1/4" white head with good retention.

S- Malt aroma is a little grainy, straw, and a little fruity/apple.

T- Sweetness, some toasty grainy malt. Maybe a faint earthy hop.

M- Smooth, wet, really easy to drink.

O- Sweetness is a bit off, a little apple. But this is easy to drink and refreshing on a hot day.

Yellow, fizzy beer that has a tad more going for it, taste-wise. Or maybe I was just hot and anything cold tasted good. Slim pickin's when you're in the tropics.....

from the pilsners' in CR this would be the best, is refreshing and crisp, light yellow color, with a white heat without retention, easy to drink in tropical Costa Rica.
Nose: slightly malty with a hint of hops
body: light
Overall: A bit better than its cousin imperial
