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.
