Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet, I didn't see any dates on the bottle.

This pours a clear yellow color with a white head which quickly goes away. The smell is of sweet malt and floral hops. The mouth feel is light and crisp. The taste is good there is a slight sweet taste up front with some hoppy tastes on the way down, very crisp, the bottle I had also has a weird metallic after taste, almost like a Heineken. Overall this beer isn't bad there's just not a whole lot going on. Its not one I'd ever keep at my house, when there's nothing else I love on the menu though, I'll order it.

One of the better Mexican beers, but still, nothing to rave about. Poured from a 12oz. bottle, into a pint glass. The beer poured a clear yellow, forming a thin 1 inch head, with lots of carbonation. Thin rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is slightly skunky, along with a little corn smell. The taste isnt bad, but its not really good either. Very little flavor, mostly a slight grain flavor, but mostly just like water. Light mouthfeel. Overall, not bad, but this isnt a beer I would drink more than one of.

I had this at a new mexican restaurant.

Appearance- light gold color, no head

Smell- some malt, lime

Taste- little malt, mostly lime, not much flavor

Mouthfeel- light bodied, no carbonation

Drinkability- It's ok when drinking it while eating mexican food but it's not really my type of beer.

This poured to a bright yellow and gold color with plenty of head. It didn't last too long and it didn't leave much lace either.

There is definitely some of the corn grain taste in there, but it's not too bad. It finishes like a relatively classy lager. It feels nice in the mouth and is really drinkable, especially in warm and hot weather.

Pours out a dark straw with a good amount of sediment...never seen that before. Nice white head foams up.

Smell. Light malt aroma that is slightly sweet. also has an interesting menthol cooling smell i do not remember.

Taste. Interesting flavor. I'm guessing its the sediment right now giving it the yeasty flavor. But does have just a touch of hop bitterness. Flavor is not bad, just not much to talk about.

Mouthfeel. Body is creamy, but low on carbonation. not bad.

Overall. One of only a small handful of mexican beers i like to drink. No big frills here, but is good enough to enjoy with mexican, or even a six pack at home.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

1. It was a pale straw color with thin bubbly white head that disappeared almost immediately.

2. Not much of a smell. Smells a little piney, kind of sweet, but the scent is not strong.

3. Tastes' like bread, a little bit of citrus followed by a very slight hoppy finish.

4. Feels a little bubbly, not overcarbonated though, very crisp.

5. I could probably drink 20 of these. It is refreshing, crisp, and has more taste than most other mexican beers.
You don't usually taste any hops in these beers, but they are present in Bohemia.

Tasted multiple times at Denny's in Chihuahua, MX

Similar in color to Corona, but that is where the similarities between these two cervezas end.

Not too much head here, and the carbonation looks pretty substantial.

Nothing too notable in the nose. I was a little disappointed. A little bit of grass comes through.

Taste is fruity and that goes great with the floral and citrusy hops. Its a pleasant flavor that I can't seem to get enough of during my trip to Chihuahua on business. What a great departure from what other options I have tried here.

Mild texture with a light feel just like a good pils. Flavor has good substance, and the beer is incredibly refreshing. If you can't drink the water, this is the best option.

My mom is totally into Mexican beers - corona light being here favorite...I know, like a garlic necklace to most of you out there. A surprising step up for her.

Pours a pale, transparent corn yellow with a fizzy, white head. Nose is a little astringent with some skunked malt. Tastes like a sweet malt liquor - skunky, sugary corn, favorably less skunked than Corona. Better than I remembered it last Spring Break in Lake Havasu CIty, AZ before I became enlightened and was on a Mexican beer binge, but certainly doesn't compare well to the Sam Adams Boston Lager I had earlier in the night. Thin and bubbly mouthfeel. The best of Mexican macro lagers I've had thus far though, if that's any consolation...

A solid Mexican beer. Wrapped in foil, like champagne, in a short stocky bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Not much to the appearance, or the aroma, a little grainy I guess. The rest is better though. Very smooth, refreshing and light-bodied. Semi-sweet notes with a little more flavor than others of the same category. I must say this goes quite well with Mexican food and they are very easy to drink.

served into mug from 12oz.brown bottle crimped cap at Mexican restaraunt,a bit on the cold side mug was chilled not frosted.

Clear,light golden color,large bubbles on sides of glass,small tiny bubbles stringing from the center of the glass.Thin white,head dissapating quickley,2nd beer was better about 1/2" head lasted a bit longer. Some spotty lacing on sides of glass.

A crisp,clean citrusy aroma,also carmelly,more carmelly nose as the beer warms. Good aromas as compaired to most Mexican beers.

Clean,snappy citrus bite,a bit grapefruitty,wasn't malty at first,more malt tastes as it warms and mid taste malt flavors.A good clean,fresh citrus taste to the finish. Overall a nice balance to this beer.

A clean,light mouthfeel,pleasing and refreshing,very drinkable.A good Mexican session beer very enjoyable citrus bite really adds to drinkability. A forum post said this was the Best Mexician beer, made me give it a try. I'd have to agree with this.

A- Pours a golden color with no sediment, and a 1 finger head that dissipates quickly.

S- Some light fruitiness comes through. It's almost a light citrus and banana. There is also a decent graininess and hop presence.

T- Starts with a very light banana citrus note then quickly chances to a metallic dryness all the way to the finish.

M- Low carbonation and clean finish

D- This has just enough citrus spice to cut through mexican food. Definitely a top choice at local Mexican joints.

Appearance:
Pale gold color, fairly clear. Lots of small bubbles. Small head.

Aroma:
Very crisp, grainy, a little spicy from the hops.

Taste:
Clean grainy up front along with crisp bitterness in the finish. Grainy, slight sweet, just a touch of hay. Spicy-earthy hops at the end, yet it's very crisp. Light bodied, very crisp and refreshing. Right amount of carbonation for the style.

Finish:
Spicy, yet very crisp.

Overall:
Very good for a Mexican made Pilsner.

Bohemia Clasica was a clear yellow color with a tiny white head that disappear as soon a possible. The aroma was a sweet, grainy smell. The taste was a light lemony, grassy flavor. A pretty good balance between malt and hops. The mouth feel was medium bodied with little carbonation. The drinkability was good; ABV, taste and price all reasonable. This was the best beer that I've ever had out of Mexico, which is not saying much, unfortunately.
