Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a transparent golden straw color with a minimal foam collar for a head, no real lacing. Smells faintly of generic graininess and some cooked sweet corn adjunct, tastes of the same as well. Body is on the thinner watery side but at least it is smooth and refreshing. Really not all that much superior to BMCs.

My favorite beer from Mexico. Hops are up front. Feels good on the tongue, not slick like other Mexican beers. My only beef is that there is a slight corn funk to it that if you don't think about it, it won't appear, it's kind of fleeting. Overall a very good beer.

This is a very good beer, i like it. When I don´t have any craft and it´s late i can go to the mini super and get some bohemias. This is not an american adjunct lager anymore, it was changed to a pilsner like beer with german hops.

12 oz fancy bottle (revisited in Oct. 2015).
Not fancy beer. Instead, what we have here is a below average pilsner style beer with mild aroma and flavor.
Certainly more interesting and flavorful than, say, Corona Light, but the blend of earthy hops, light malts (and corn?), is not the best combo.

Medium-light body with relatively soft, medium carbonation.

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.

A: Thin yellow, barely a head and carbonated like a semi weak soda.

S: Heavy peach syrup, but the yeast lightens it.

T: Light and slightly peachy. Similar to sun tea. Very mild, kinda watery.

M: Slight sting, otherwise very tea like.

O: I've had better ones. The flavor is nice but super super mild.

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.

Clear pale gold with two fingers of three minute head that leaves some pretty fair lace.
Smell is bready malts with some grassy or herbal hops. If there is corn here it was used sparingly. Taste is sweet malts with a nice kick of noble hop character to balance.
Mouthfeel is medium for the style. Carbonation is fairly high. Finish is lightly dry with a minor bitterness from the hops. Overall a very nice Mexican AAL. I would gladly drink this with a spicy Mexican meal.
