Sometimes it is creamy somwtimes it is quite alcoholic. BUt it has softer aroma than the regular. It broke the myth of Bohemia being a dark one. It is malty in tste and I prefeer it over the other one. The quality is good but not exceptional. Let us say it is a potable beer in here.

Bohemia oscura pours a nice copper dark color; nice head and nice lacing; Smell of malts and maybe fruity aroma; Taste is of roasted malts and caramel; Nice carbonation, Refreshing and very,very drinkable brew.

I recommend this mexican beer.

¡Salud!

This sure was a surprise.

It was not very long that I was talking with some friends about the sorry aspect of the Mexican beer scene, both macro and micro.

Now I find a new macro, and it's actually good.

Pours a dark amber, with an almos half inch (1 cm) tan bubbly head, with no lacing.

Smell is of lightly roasted malts, some yeast in the background.

Taste is crisp, as a lager should be; malty, really malty.

Mouthfeel is round, prone to the bitter side. Actually, this one and Casta Oscura have to be México's most bitter beers. Not a hop monster, really, but a nice afternoon beer when the thermometer was way over upper 90's most of the day.

Drinkability is high, but with a lot of care since a 5.5% ABV has to be taken seriously in my weather. I guess Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma has a winner here.

¡Salud!

A new beer from CCM, deepy red color almost like copper;

same graphics like its twin bohemia; new bottle; in general is a beer like casta premium or conmemmorativa 2006; i try with some seafood and bluecheese dip;

served on a pilsner glass; boiled hops and a malty aftertaste; round and large mouthfeel; good beer;

85% recommended.
