somewhere above the median on the Mexican beer spectrum. the one pours a real light clear watery wheat color, with a short lived white head. the nose is very generic and light, crystal and pale malts, not as pilsener as indicated, but not offensively cornmeal adjuncty like a sol or a corona, although the flavor of this is only mildly better than either of those. it honestly doesn't really taste like much, which is actually an improvement over the metallic and rancid flavors of some of its competition. very crisp finish too without the sweet weirdness. also improved with a lime wedge, as infrequently as I say that, it applies here. ultra light mouthfeel and pretty good carbonation. I would take this over most other Mexican beers ive had, save pacifico. this does not approach a good quality brew, but in a hot summer setting when the alternatives are mich ultra and coronoa light, this is my horse.

12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.

A: Pours a lighter straw color with a good bit of translucence to its body. The head is a two finger white shade. Bubbly as can be, it fades away quickly, and doesn't leave much lacing on the glass, either.

S: Grains and light maltiness, about what I expect from a Mexican lager. Oh, and some noble hops. Gee, imagine that, noble hops in a lager! Whodathunkit? I also notice some tart lemon/lime qualities.

T: The lime tone in the aroma moves down to the tongue, supporting a sweet malt base and faint yet zesty hop bite. Adjunct notes are thankfully kept in check. Simple as can be, but it just works so well with what it has.

M: Light and crisp. Carbonation isn't overbearing, and it's superbly drinkable.

O: This isn't just good for a Mexican lager - it's a legitimately good beer, period. Merely drinking this makes me think about 78F sunny days laying on the patio without a care in the world. This beer has just given me A) a go-to in Mexican restaurants, B) something to buy for non-beer-drinking guests when hosting a party, and C) something to actually enjoy besides margaritas should I ever end up vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

In my opinion, Bohemia is by far the best Mexican beer. Had this in the foil topped bottle, so I will not comment on the head or any of that stuff, but this is overall a decent beer.

Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant, I get a Bohemia. For some odd reason, about two years ago, every Mexican place in town started bringing it out with a lime--I guess to cater to the Corona crowd--but I wish this would not happen because I find that the lime taste messes up the flavor of the hops.

The taste is similar to German or Czech beer in general; there is a little hop flavor and a little bold malty flavor at the same time. It has a similar mouthfeel to a beer like Lowenbrau, which is not too watery, but not having a solid presence either.

Overall a solid beer, especially when compared to other Mexican beers.

From the foil topped 12 fl. oz. bottle . Sampled on February 19, 2013

The pour is pale yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head.

The aroma is of pale German malts, sugar, toast, and a cleanish hop scent.

The body is light to medium and is also rather creamy.

The taste begins with moderate malts and a low to moderate hop bitterness that lingers briefly at the end. I found it to be pretty decent for the style.
