I´ve had Bohemia Pilsen a number of times already, but no review yet. After this, I will have the entire Bohemia family reviewed under my belt. 355 ml bottle, on to the beer:
Hay yellow color, topped by a fuzzy white head that drops to a thin lace on top. Fair display of carbonation bubbles in the body. There is a light aroma of hay in the aroma. A little sweet too, but also the grain is husky too.
Its clean profile is a nice change of pace from the usual Brazilian macro lager. There´s a little hay and lemon zest to taste, along with a little of the sweet pale malt. The malt is somewhat husky as well. In other words, a little softer profile and this beer goes up a level. Somewhat hoppy too. The carbonation is mildy crisp, and it manages to go down nicely...ok, nicely enough.
Believe it or not, Bohemia Pilsen was the first beer ever made in Brazil (1853), according to their claim. This is a decent lager, and better than Skol, Brahma, and the like.
Update: I´ll admit that I´ve grown to like this beer. It´s clean, doesn´t have any sickning off-flavors, and makes a good thirst quencher.

Poured one finger that dissipated quickly. Faint aroma of herbal hops that comes and go. Medium carbonation. Very light and refreshing. Bohemia is generally inconsistent, this one was actually pleasant, tasting herbal hops, and close to its original recipe that has a lingering zesty taste.
Sweetness from cereals and some malt. And this one also has not presented a metallic off flavor.
Under Antarctica was one of the best Brazilian beers (though had not much options), then Ambev took its worthy brand and produced it in a much bigger scale, adapting (read negative) to a broader mass preference.
