Bohemia Oscura is a Vienna type beer. It offers the perfect balance of caramel and toasted malts that give off notes from walnut and coffee.

Bohemia "Vienna" bottle in Mexico in August, 2022. This is a handsome beer that I expected to be in the same quality league as the "Pilsener" I had already sampled. I was disappointed; I think this beer is below the standard set by Bohemia Pilsener. It could just be a variation on XX amber (both made by Heineken). It reminds me of some OK ambers including Yuengling Lager.

Bohemia is marketed as the premium product line of Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma brewery.
While the Clara ('pilsner') is actually good, to me the Oscura tastes too much of artificial chocolate, almost like Hershey's Syrup but without the aroma.
I perceive it as an over-industrialized effort to sell it as 'exotic' or 'gourmet' to people that don't expect much or know much about beer but want to try something fancier that average mexican macros.

3.19/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-toned body with a thin, wispy, ivory head.

Smell: Oscura has a rather weak aroma, with ultra faint touches of malt in the form of a dry toasty quality and lager character.

Taste: A bit sweetish, rather mild hints of toasted bread, nuts with a dusting of Sanka and chocolate. All rather mild, but fine, then, unfortunately, it turns a bit metallic as you reach the soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Picked up the Bohemia multipack to celebrate the Fourth of July - whoa, whoa, whoa - don't worry, I did make sure to snag some appropriate American-born beers for celebrating Independence Day. Still, I'd say the standard-issue Bohemia Clásica/Pilsner is the best of the bunch.
