Good mass produced Mexican Brew. Still need to explore the Mexican micro brews popping up.

When you're in Mexico putting back Bohemias and lime. There's really not anything to complain about.

Could almost see this as being akin to the status quo water glass at dinner. I.e. if you drink it fine, if not, no big deal; Could in fact even see having something else as the "primary" drink, with this being a secondary thing.

A lot of the beers I enjoy, I almost consider to be more of a food component to the meal vs. that of a beverage, if that makes sense, This is the other way around. Very unassuming, very neutral. Would go pretty well with just about anything and not get in the way. Could I see myself sitting down with one of these in my favorite glass and sipping? Do I see this as being a meal enhancement? No chance. But I could see drinking a bit of this with crabs, pizza, shrimp, chinese, a burger, after working in the yard, etc, etc. Probably defines the term session, although I can't imagine drinking any real number of these.

Pours a clear very pale straw color; Not much head to speak off. No lacing. Fairly bubbly. I may have picked-up on a touch of skunk in the nose as well as some grass. Not much in the way of body or mouth feel to it. Some have said it's not watery; I would tend to disagree and say that it's in fact very watery. Almost reminded me a little of my GrandDad's 'PBR' circa 75', although a tad weaker.

Pours a mostly clear, flecky gold with orange hues and quickly thinning white head. Aromas of malted grain, crackers, and faint esters and/or hops. First grainy, then sweet, and finally just barely bitter to the taste. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated, leading to refreshing, smooth, bubbly swallow. One of my favorite Mexican beers. Also one of my favorite Pils/Pale/Premium imports, some of the others tending to skunk too easily.

A little bit of cocoa in the flavor, otherwise a straightforward lager. Overall, it’s pretty good.

Solid pils. Nothing outstanding, but very solid and much better than plenty of other choices out there. Would get again.

This is a proper representation of the style. A truely great drinking experience. Another good beer from this brewery makes them, in my opinion, the best brewery in Mexico. Grupo Modelo/Corona is a distant second with their meager offerings compared to a brewery that produces Noche Buena and the Bohemia series.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice malt and floral essence.
Appearance- The beer is gold colored with a small white head.
Taste- Has a decent malt and hop mix flavor.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with light carbonation has a slightly oily texture and has a nice aftertaste.
Overall- A pretty enjoyable brew, great with food.

The best beer our great neighbors from the south have provided. I once went to a Mexican restaurant and the stuck a lime on the top of the bottle... I flicked that stupid lime in a second and informed the waiter, this is Bohemia a real beer #nolimerequired.

3.7/5  rDev +9.1%

Pours golden with good clarity and lots of shine. Fat head of off white foam that lasts well but does not leave lace. Nose is a perfect clean grain scent with a shy bit of sweetness. No esters from yeast and no hop scents on the nose. Smells like bread from the bakery. Admirable. Taste is good. Creamy body with a slight carbonation. Deep but not rich grain and some a faint sweetness. The beer finishes clean crisp and with a bit of lemon. Very very good. Drinks so easily. Too easily.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a thin white head that is permanent and does not lace. Color is medium gold. Aroma presents sweet pale lager malts and noble hops, probably Saaz and/or Hallertauer or the like. Flavor is balanced and on the sweet/malty side of Pils, More like a Czech Pilsner. Finishes with a crisp spicy hop note. Mouthfeel is big for style listed here. In conclusion, Bohemia is trying to capture the essence of both Czech and German Pilseners and does a fine job of it.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance – A gold color, with a thin head that disappears quickly. Has a thin, runny lacing.

Smell –A sweet malty aroma with floral hops and just a light touch of lemon. It’s really nice.

Taste – Similar to the smell, with a touch more hoppiness.

Mouthfeel – Nicely carbonated, crisp, slightly creamy, and smooth.

Drinkability – A very drinkable beer; I always finish the bottle too quickly. This has become one of my favorite session beers. Definitely the best beer I’ve had from Mexico.

Just slightly paler than amber, this beer is on the darkest side of yellow. It maintains a certain clarity, too, translucent but leaning more transparent. The head is a whitish cap reaching half a finger with good retention and somewhat better than decent coverage in terms of lacing.
It's a little grainy underneath, but it does have more Noble hops than I expect. It has a little bit of a peppery bite with some dry grass and a little damp earth. It goes a little sweet on the nose, more so than the tongue, but it's not corn. Malts, after the sweetness, go about medium-dry in the flavor. The finish offers more of a floral note with just a little of the running grains note continuing through.
It's crisp, light-bodied but not watery, and fairly smooth; all said, pretty refreshing. The grains do keep it from being completely clean.

This is probably one of the best Mexican beers. Its a Pilsner in true tradition of a Bohemia style hence the name. Not as popular as your mass produced and advertised Mexican beers.
Very good medium taste yet easy to drink in hot weather and with spicy food. Always very consistent.

Its funny that the locals in Mexico joke that Corona is Donkey Pee and should only be exported put they'll keep the Bohemia and Victoria any day.

Next time you go to a Mexican restaurant I encourage you to skip the Corona/Dos Equis Etc. and give it a try.

Cheers

12 oz cold bottle at a local Mexican joint

Lets skip the intracacies and keep this review plain and simple, since that's what this beer is all about...

Overall - Super clean, lightly sweet, bready malt: light grassy/floral hops: Crisp, effervescent carbonation, light body, smooth. Just a super refreshing, subtle, clean lager. Nothing fancy, but no off notes here to speak of; highly drinkable.
