Misc.: Best by July 2017

Has vaguely heard of Bohemia beers, but the Gellar’s left it with a bunch of others after my daughter’s fourth birthday party. Beer Advocate calls it a German Pilsner. Going with that. Not expecting much.

Poured a light yellow clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass as expected. Decent watery foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled usual notes of grass, hay, sweet corn, wheat, honey, cereal and bread. Really good though, true to the style. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted not nearly as good as the smell, but still decent. Got hay, corn, honey wheat, grass, cereal, sourdough bread and spoiled grapes. There was also a slight peppery spice lingering on the palate. (Taste - 3.25)

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, slightly spicy finish. (Feel – 3.25)

Wow, I was scared early on that this was going to be good. It was not, but it was decent. (Overall - 3.25)

I went into it with low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised! Pours clear bright yellow with a thin head that dissipates fast. I couldn't get much of a head on a fairly aggressive pour. Aroma is subtle and not unpleasant, mild hops and distant corn and fermented grains. The taste was surprisingly good with a balance of bready biscuity malt and hops, with some grain and milled corn in there for sure but nothing unpleasant. Mouthfeel is light bodied but not watery, with medium carbonation. Finished clean and dry. Overall a very drinkable beer.

Viva! An adjunct with aspirations.

Tops of my picks of Mexican AALs. Oh, it pales in comparison to it's European ancestors but at least it makes an effort. Malt, hops forward, medium body, good color, good texture, lots to recommend it. Still an AAL, but something I can serve friends who know something about beer.

If you have a choice of those brewed South of the River this is the one to choose.

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.

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.
