3.9/5  rDev +15%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz short & stubby brown bottle with a gold foil neck.

Appearance: Bright, clear golden in colour. Large carbonation bubbles. Creamy thin white head that clings on the glass.

Smell: Very clean aroma, just a touch of sweet grain in the background.

Taste: Body is light, mouthfeel is very smooth and very creamy. Touch of bready sweetness that is even, flavourful and goes faintly fruity -- in a soft, gentle sweet peach kind of way. The faintest hint of smooth vanilla hides amongst the light sweetness, but then it's lost almost instantly and the bready sweetness pulls thru for a second round. Light grain follows. Hop bitterness is also light with a slight twang of zesty hop and floral flavour which are quickly subdued. Finish is quite clean with some light residuals.

Notes: Before anyone says anything ... yes, this is a Vienna-Style Lager. There are quite a few Mexican lagers that are, but that's a history lesson within itself. Back to the beer ... without a doubt one of the best mass-produced Mexican lagers available. Just had one of these with a rice, bean and cheese burrito covered in peppermash salsa. It quenched, quelled and complemented quite nicely.

Typical pilsner appearance. Straw hue and perfectly clear. Lemony and floral hop nose perhaps from Tettanger. Malt notes are surpsingly absent in the aroma. Light in carbonation for a pilsner. Hop bitterness is mild and malt sweetness thus dominates. Lemon zest hop flavor followed by a hint of graininess. Nothing outstanding in flavor, but the lack of flaws and clean finish to this beer make it innocuous and drinkable. It's not a beer to savor by itself... it needs greasy food.

Lighter malt aroma that adds nicely to the drink. Nice full head. Clear light gold color. Taste is a little drier than many in style, but not sharp or bitter, which I think is why it goes so well with many foods. Good mouth feel, without excessive carbonation. A satisfying lager.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

slightly hazy golden hue with a thin head. foam dies quickly and doesn't leave any lace. earthy hops in the nose, and a medium body and fairly full mouthfeel. tastes great with some actual hop assertiveness. solid and unspectacular. too bad american mass producers can't come up with something similar to this pilsener, it would kick the crap out of our current options for quality lager.

My favorite Mexican beer, although I only had a few. Better then Dos Equis and it smashes Corona. I thought it was very crisp & it had clean finish. It went very well w/ my prime rib steak & chili.

This is my favorite Mexican beer. When we first started road-tripping to Mexico as youngsters, we drank Corona because it was everywhere. Once I discovered Bohemia, I never went back. It tastes great icy cold on the beach or with carne asada for dinner.

Pretty good south of the border beer. Nothing special, but decent body and sufficient hops to do the job.
