This was the best beer I encountered in Costa Rica so far. It still doesn't compare to American counterparts but I works. Lighter bodied and slightly tropical to fight off the Costa Rican heats. I you come across it, it's worth buying over the imperial and pilsens that are so common

I encountered this beer and the CRCBC for the first time at Product C in Escazu. They call it a tropical golden ale, and I would be inclined to agree. It was on tap and pours out will very little carbonation and not even a half finger of head on it. Golden is a good description for this cerveza because this beer was just the right gold color. It reminded me of local macros, but this was fruity with much more flavor. There was no lacing on the glass as I drank this. Libertas has notes of pineapple and peach, and is a very easy, smooth beer to drink. I could definitely take a 6 of this to Manuel Antonio or Jaco and enjoy a day on the beach. Libertas is light, a bit sweet, and easy to drink. If you are in Costa Rica definitely pick this up.

Nice peach coloured ale. Metallic smelling.

Very much tastes like a pilsner with a tiny hint of fruity hops and earthiness. Gets slightly estery as it warms. Pretty similar to Cooper's Sparkling Ale.

Very refreshing but I wouldn't pack a suitcase full of it.

At the guilded iguana in nosara.

Nice and light and refreshing. Some hints of mango and passion fruit. Little malt backbone. Very light body.

Would be a great Costa Rica lunchtime beer. Too bad it's not easier to find. Pick it up if you see it around.
