Review: Cerveza Imperial

Costa Rica (reportedly) has one brewery: Imperial. And if you like crisp and light Mexican beers, you’ll love Imperial.

It’s sweeter than, say, Pacifico, but not so tangy as, say, Jamaica’s Red Stripe. It’s also got a curiously mild aftertaste, which I pegged as something like corn, or corn tortillas. Not bad at all with any sort of south-of-the-border cuisine.

Imperial is not easy to find in the States, but came across six packs at BevMo, and on sale, no less. (You’ll have better luck on the west coast, where Black Eagle Imports distributes it.) Give it a whirl if you come across a bottle!
