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.

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.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy white head that slowly reduces to a small patch of thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of sweet malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of sweet malty flavor - light amounts of bready malts combined with moderate amounts of sweet grainy malts and corn adjuncts. Just a hint of grassy hops in the finish which impart a touch of bitterness which fades almost instantly.

M: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: Pretty flavorful for the style (AAL) and easy to drink. Refreshing with spicy Mexican or slightly salty Italian foods.

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.

According to the foil capping on the bottle, this is the "Frida Kahlo Edicion Especial," although I doubt there is any significant difference besides the packaging. The beer was poured into a tumbler pint, and it is a bright, vibrant, orange-yellow coloring with a steady flow of carbonation bubbling and no trace of head. Aromas are light, with a roasty, toasty backbone and some floral highlights. Flavors are tangy sweet, with a jasmine kick to the toasted grain backbone and slight roasted corn blending. Surprisingly, the beer's body actually has some substance to it, with a smoothness that makes it very easy to drink. Slightly musty aftertaste, and the increased carbonation leads to a slightly sharp, almost astringent finish that leaves the palate clean.

Ordered this from a Mexican restaurant, I was hoping for the German pilsener version, but instead was served the clasica.

A: pale straw, fizzy, some head retention

S: stale cereal grains, corn, a hint of sweetness

T: starts with a tinge of sweetness, big grainy bread profile, considerable amount of flavor for an adjunct lager, decent balance

Mf: light body, high carb

O: better than most of what BMC offers, but only by a slim margin

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.
