Beer: The border crossers
Imperial In Costa Rica’s top finisher, “crisp, crackery malt blends nicely with some subtle hop notes.”
Pacifico Mexico’s Pacifico is “the portrait of neutrality,” a crisp lager whose only flaw is a slight lack of character.
Bohemia The taste-off’s runner-up, also from Mexico, “never lacks for character”: It “checks both malt and hop boxes simultaneously.”
Famosa Our surprise winner, from Guatemala, is “shockingly tasty”—characterized by the greeny, spicy hop flavor of a Czech pilsner.
