Much better than Corona and Tecate, comparable to Modelo and Dos Equis as far as quality goes.

It's a bit on the sweet side, grainy breakfast cereal with a touch of honey and a little apple as well. There is some light noble hop bitterness at the back end which was nice but I wish there was a bit more of it.

Overall a nice refresher after a long day snorkeling with the family. I think the reef squid were trying to tell me something

Look - 355ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Straw yellow in color, clear, and nice foamy head with excellent retention.

Smell - noble hops with some grains. not much beyond that, but very clean.

Taste - moderately hoppy, which is a surprise. hops hit the tongue first, which lingers quite a while. some malts and sweetness detectable after. finish is clean.

Feel - light bodied, average carbonation, and relatively low ABV at 4.7%.

Overall - for a mass produced pilsner, this is surprisingly okay. a healthy dose of noble hops that is quite true to the Bohemian pilsner style, and one of the better beers I've had in Mexico.

I happen to see this at a local grocery store and picked up a 12 pack. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this beer. It has a nice bitterness to it unlike any other Mexican beer. I wish it was more readily available.

Best Mexican Beer, plain and simple. Bohemia does not need all the marketing as "Corona" all it needs is for you to open it and pour it on glass taste it and you know you have hit the holy grail of Mexican beer. Great Czech pilsner.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color lager with a medium size white foamy head. Aroma of light sweet notes with some adjunct notes. Taste is also a mix of adjunct notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Adjunct based lager with limited interesting flavors.

Bohemia Pilsener (Clasica) tasted in Mexico in August, 2022. Heineken has positioned this as a Pilsener these days. Just because the PR department says it is, it does not make it so. I'd say it is tragically mis-classified in BA as a Bohemian/Czech Pilsener. When I asked for this "Pilsener", the server needed to confirm that I wanted "clara". I'm rating as an American Adjunct Lager (AAL). Taken as such it is about as good as an AAL gets. Clear body and creamy long-lasting head. Mild attractive aroma. Moderate malt body with a refined hoppy taste, nice flavor and a good bitter bite. The aftertaste is a friendly reminder to take another sip. I haven't run across an ingredients lists; even if it turns out to be all-malt, the overall impression is of a very well made AAL.

A pretty pour; clear bright gold body with a large white head and a fair amount of lacing. Straightforward malty aroma with a light touch of floral hops. Well rounded taste that brings together many of the attributes common for the style. Clean, crisp mouthfeel with no off notes. Exceeded my expectations.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a completely clear, medium golden color with a moderate white head. SRM of 7. (3.75)

Aroma: Mild aromas of pale malts and buttered biscuit malt, followed by a light yeast. (3.75)

Flavor: Moderate flavors of pale malts, biscuit malt, buttered biscuit malt. Some yeast before a lightly buttered biscuit malt finish. Minimal hop presence. (3.75)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Smooth and soft. (3.75)

Compared to Pilsner Urquell 6/21/22: Pours a lighter color. Similar aromas. More biscuit malt. Less buttered bread, but still slightly buttery. Less hoppy and more light and smooth.

Overall: A pretty nice version of a Czech-style pilsner here. This one has some nice pale and biscuit malts. Light, but present buttery notes. Minimal to no hops detected. Lightly buttered biscuits. A soft, smooth finish. Very light and drinkable, but some nice malt flavors.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, best by Dec 2022

On the pour a 2 finger head forms made up of a mix of fine and larger bubbles, doesn't stick around however, and dissipates to a cluster of bubbles and a ring around the glass. Color is light, golden straw, with very lively carbonation. Somehow has vague lacing?

Aroma is of oxidized hops, no skunk however. Some citrus notes, and quite crisp overall. A slight crackery malt intertwined with a very mild lager yeast. A bit of tang to it.

Flavor follows the nose but with some improvements. Definitely a pilsner with a hop bitterness upfront, with slight citrus as well coming from the hops that leads to a nice clean crackery malt, with only a hint of cornices. Some odd Metallic flavor gets caught in the middle of it all however.

Feel is solid. Not watery by any means and has a good drinkability and smoothness following the bitterness and co2 bite. Not a heavy beer, but certainly not a light beer either, much more substance than most Mexican macros.

Overall a step up from other cuauhtemoc beers for the most part, and recognizable as a pilsner. Still recognizable as a macro however and not the highest quality but still detectably hoppy nonetheless.

We were like, Bohemia? Mexico? Thought it’s kind of rare to have a Pilsner made in Mexico and not a Cerveza. I think it even said it uses Czech (Saaz) hops for that real Czech feel.
Now although I did not particularly find the Czech tone in there, I did appreciate the extra hoppiness and the character in there. It was like having taken the Cerveza to the next level.
It didn’t blow my mind though but I did not even expect it to. It was good to have this for a change.
