I want to have more of this next time I'm at Casa Vallarta, I definitely liked it but others have led me to believe it's the hidden gem amongst Modelo and Dos Equis. I enjoy the Mexican style lager a lot with food though. These beers are for fun times and good food nothing more

Pours golden 4 finger white head into pilsner urquell .5l mug. Slight floral nose, biscuit malt. Great lacing. Taste follows the nose, slightest addition of adjunct combines with biscuits, slight balanced hoppy finish. Good beer, would recommend.

Nice and dark, golden straw in Color with a great 1" foamy head. Hoppy nose, nice biscuity, hoppy taste. Slight adjunct and hoppy finish but the adjuncts aren't offensive. Slick mouthfeel. Overall a nice example of a Pilsner. At $8 a 6- pack I will be buying this again and again.

I did not think was as good as the overall average rating, sorry. It is an okay Pilsner but there is something about the way the hops finish that just does not appeal to me. It is not a bad beer, but I cannot rate it very high. All that being said, I recommend you give it a go if you like this particular style.

Bottle. White head with a bit of lace. Clear golden yellow.

Bready and biscuity malts. A bit more body than most pilsners. Not as crisp, clean, and refreshing as I’d like. Has some earthy hops to it, but light.

Drank 02.17.20 on the beach at Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Poured with a nice white head, great lacing. Light and refreshing. Nice rather full mouthfeel for a Pilsner. Taste - bready and sweet. Really enjoyed this. Worth seeking out after a day on the beach.

This is a beer for the non-beer drinker. In fact, it is a beer for a tea or kombucha drinker. It is inoffensive, crisp, pleasantly carbonated with forward notes of rose. As a fan of ale, I enjoyed it immensely.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance - The beer pours s clear amber color with a small white head. The head fades fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell -The aroma is light, consisting of a little bit grain and caramel.
Taste- The taste begins with a slightly grainy taste mixed with a touch of caramel. As the taste advances some very light herbal flavor comes to the tongue and leaves one with a crisp and clean taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is light and crisp with a medium to high carbonation. The feel is great for the tastes and makes for a easy drinker.
Overall - A easygoing brew with a decent flavor. Nothing exceptional, but for a lighter Mexican brew not bad.

Gold with 1.5 finger head. Smells of bready, lightly toasty malt with fruit, grass, citrus. The flavor is especially grassy, apple fruity. Light mouth feel. Moderate carbonation.

Had it at Gabriel’s near Santa Fe as part of a birthday celebration for friend and colleague, Kent.

Served in a bottle with a half pint glass and lime. Pours clear yellow color with thin head and light lacing. Clean, grassy fruity smell and taste. The lime accented the taste well. Went well with our food. I would get it again in a similar restaurant.

Easily The best mainstream Mexican beer- The one to order in a taco place if you’re lucky enoughto Find it on the menu. Corona and its ilk taste more like carbonated water compared to the actual flavor of Bohemia.

Bought a bottle at Jorge's Mexican Cantina in Kettering, Oh. Served with a frosty mug, yellow straw color. White head that quickly vanished with moderate lacing. Floral hoppy taste with grassy, citrus note. Well balanced malt. It went well with the meal, better as it warmed a few degrees. One of my favorite south of the border brews, would buy again. Cheers!

From a bottle. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Sweet corn smell. Light feel and moderate carbonation. Sweet malt flavors with some floral hops. One of the better Mexican beers, but only okay overall.

The last offering from a ‘Beers of Mexico’ 12-pack I’ve been slogging through. I left this one for last...none to impressed...

Pretty much every beer from this 12-pack looked and tasted the same - just not appealing at all. The look was a classic, golden amber with light foam and light lacing. Mouthfeel was very well carbonated and the smell was like the line out of Billy Joel’s piano man - none too good.

I’ve actually started to wonder if all they do there is make the same adjunct stuff and just package it differently. Based on this experience I wouldn’t be surprised.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Beer is golden clear in color with a 1/4" head that quickly dissappears. Smell is mostly hops, but a little lemon zest comes out, and corn sweetness. Taste is very even-- refreshing, moderate carbonation, is not dry, but mostly hops and bread that overall feels light. No aftertaste detected.

This is the beer to have with spicy Mexican food, it has more taste than the other Mexican beers I have had to date. The feel is light enough to enjoy those dishes. The biggest issue really is the availability of this beer, this beer is not stocked as nearly as often as it's corporate cousins like Dos Equis, but Bohemia is a much better beer.

On tap into a pint glass. Nearly clear golden color with a medium white head. Not much aroma - a little bread and dough. No hop aroma. The taste was better, with faint floral notes and clean white bread. No off flavors. Light bodied and medium carbonated. OK for an airport beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Best by date stamped on bottle neck is 'APR 2019'.
Clear straw/pale gold colored body. Half a finger of white head upon pouring, recedes back to partial island and thin ring. Leaves just a few spots of lacing.
Aroma is cracker malts (with a little sweetness) and minor floral hops.
Taste is dry, with slightly sweet malts balanced against the slight bitterness of the hops.
Thin mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Pleasant enough pilsner that is refreshing for what it is. I am having a side by side comparison with a Guatemalan Famosa, because these were the two finalists in a recent tasting of "Mexican" lager beers. Unfortunately the Famosa is "skunked" which does not allow for a good comparison. The Bohemia's strength is its balance between the slightly sweet, bready malts and the slightly bitter hops. Very easy to drink. No off putting flavors.

Gold pour small head, nose is grainy corn with a bit of sweetness on it. Taste of pale malt, grains, light floral. Crisp but still it is kind of watery.

Lively carbonation as what is expected from a well made pilsner. The taste does remind me of a German Pilsner. This is light & refreshing, there is a slight bitterness on the finish & I am not getting any taste of high fructose corn syrup. One of my new favorite Mexican beers. Cheers! B

The only way to sell this is mixing it into variety 12 packs which my wife purchased-arghhhh. Aroma is decent Pilsner. Taste is off putting. Bitterness, funk and bite. Not refreshing at all. I put this on the top portion of my cooler (backyard BBQ) with the likes of Corona, Sol etc.. Only one was half drank. My neighbor, who drinks swill, turned his nose to this. Tecate lite was delicious compared with this. Be wary of variety packs. In my opinion, this is not palatable. But please don't pour down the drain-mix with yard fertilizer.

Sweet, floral hop aroma with almost no head. Classic amber color and medium carbination make this beer quite appealing. There is a nice balance between the bitter hops and sweet malt. It has an interesting dryness that hilghlights its pilsner quality.This is a good lager, not watered down like most American macro pilsners.

12oz bottled January 2018 & marked bb January 2019 poured into a can glass at fridge temp 4.7% ABV 21 IBU. The beer pours bright golden straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a fine coat and leaves some lacing. The aroma is a mix of floral hops and light malts. The taste is more light malt with a steady balancing bitterness, but no distinct hop flavor. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. The finish is clean with minimal off flavors. Overall, very good. Not sure it's a German pilsner, but it's the best light colored Mexican beer I've tried. Scored as a German Pilsner, not an AAL. AAL score would have been higher.
