I vote with The Bros on this one. (See their reviews, an 88.)
The 1076 ratings averaging 78 collectively seem to miss two important points.
First, the rather full use of hops is still balanced well with a rather sweet malt. This is an achievement that many crafters still chase that an old school lager like Bohemia can teach them.
Second, this beer goes really well with salsa and chips... which is usually my measure of going with other spicy foods, also. Bohemia quenches the thirst, cleans the palate and complements piquant foods. Can't ask for more than that.

MJ's 1999 "Guide" gave this only 2.5 of 4 stars, but had nice things to say: "a pleasantly hoppy beer with higher gravity typical of its style." He said that about the time that America's favorite condiment became salsa.

Serving Type: 341 mL Bottle poured into a Shaker Pint.

Easily the best Mexican made beer that I've had. Lots of flavours and aromas that would rival many European examples of the same style.

As far as looks and smell, nothing stands out about this brew but the moment you take that first sip you know you scored one! Flavor unmatched in the pilsner category! Great brew.
