The ray of sunshine, I used to think, at most Mexican restaurants. Light amber in the glass, with a pale malty flavor and a splash of bitterness. Overall a rather delicate pislener. Pleasant hoppy bite. Very light and watery body. Hardly a trace of malty sweetness. Toasty flavor and not much else.

I've never seen this on tap, but I wonder if it would be a good addition to the Mexican brews. I used to say this was my favorite Mexican beer, but it doesn't taste like much. Still, it's so much less offensive than the commonly available competition, from Corona to Negra Modelo.

This is a very good beer, i like it. When I don´t have any craft and it´s late i can go to the mini super and get some bohemias. This is not an american adjunct lager anymore, it was changed to a pilsner like beer with german hops.

12 oz fancy bottle (revisited in Oct. 2015).
Not fancy beer. Instead, what we have here is a below average pilsner style beer with mild aroma and flavor.
Certainly more interesting and flavorful than, say, Corona Light, but the blend of earthy hops, light malts (and corn?), is not the best combo.

Medium-light body with relatively soft, medium carbonation.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a straw/golden color, very clear, with a one finger foamy white head with no retention or lacing.

S: Not much going on, slight sweetness and a little bit of grainy malt.

T: Similarly weak. Slight sweet flavor, not much in the way of hops though.

M: Light bodied and thin. Medium carbonation.

O: The worst Bohemia beer I have had so far. Usually their beers are pretty good, but this one was just boring.

A: Thin yellow, barely a head and carbonated like a semi weak soda.

S: Heavy peach syrup, but the yeast lightens it.

T: Light and slightly peachy. Similar to sun tea. Very mild, kinda watery.

M: Slight sting, otherwise very tea like.

O: I've had better ones. The flavor is nice but super super mild.

Half finger of head at best. Clear, light straw colored body.
Smell of honey and grain. Kind of nice.
The typical "no flavor" at first, mild sweet then dry bitterness to end.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fairly crisp texture.
It carries more flavor than most in the adjunct lager style, but still not that enjoyable.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours clear golden, no foam, none left. No discernable smell - maybe straw. Light watery taste, clean. Hopless (not hopeless). No finish, just ends. Very minor carbonation. Good for biting into spicy Mexican food, or maybe on a hot summer day. Otherwise, not much else going on.

Poured a darker shade of straw with plenty of carbonation pushing through the body. The head mounted quickly and tall and ebbed away every bit as quick.

The aroma is for the most part nothing. I struggled to find any real odor and when I did it was far from the typical adjunct as it was more grainy.

The flavor followed the grain notes as it trended towards barley malt. The flavor and feel is very crisp, very light with a watery follow through.

The packaging is superb, with the foiled top and Clasica name but when it came right down to it it resembles nearly all other Mexican beers.

Clear pale gold with two fingers of three minute head that leaves some pretty fair lace.
Smell is bready malts with some grassy or herbal hops. If there is corn here it was used sparingly. Taste is sweet malts with a nice kick of noble hop character to balance.
Mouthfeel is medium for the style. Carbonation is fairly high. Finish is lightly dry with a minor bitterness from the hops. Overall a very nice Mexican AAL. I would gladly drink this with a spicy Mexican meal.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down yet left some wispy patterns of bubbles on the surface along with a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of sweet malts in the nose.
T: The taste is very malty and has some initial notes of sweetness. There are notes of bready malts, grainy malts and corn. There are some hints of bitterness towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink and is quite flavorful for its style.

12 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass -

A - pours a light straw/golden color and is transparent. Has a thin, 2 finger white head with poor retention. No lacing to speak of.

S - cereal grains and a typical adjunct aroma. Some sweetness and no hops aromas. Very mild in strength.

T - Weak malty taste with some adjunct (corn?) And not a whole lot else to speak of. No hops bitterness and watery.

M - light-bodied and smooth with an adequately dry finish.

D - not bad for the style, but that ain't saying much.
