Watery and close to flavorless brew with a dry, tart finish. Generally clean and void of off-flavors but also almost completely without character.

Bottle. Aroma is light corn, spicy yeast, fruity. Hmmm...flavor is dry, grassy, fruity esters, yeasty like a Belgian yeast strain. Not bad at all.

Normal refreshing beer drinked it on the beach and and it was very refreshing I think this is just for drinking on the hit sun.

Great smooth taste. It pairs good with chicken or fish. One of my favorite Mexican beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light somewhat clear yellow color with a small bubbly carbonation rising in a moderate pace. There was a white bubbly somewhat foamy one finger head that dissipated within about 30 seconds. There was barely any lacing. The smell had a weird musty somewhat sweetened corn and the same taste. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was there for a pale lager and for me. Overall, not a bad pale lager, but not one of the best ones on the market.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Very poor bright gold body with no head that lasts awhile. Soft aroma of fusel alcohol and lemon. Flavour is a dry malt with a watery finish. This is a weak, poor excuse for any kind of beer.

Mexican lager with snow white, quickly dissipating head and bright golden blonde colour with medium sparkling. Malty aroma, something toasty, grassy and slightly peppery hops; taste malty with again that toasty note, bit of citrussy hops in the end. My second Mexican beer (some years ago) and I feared the worst after Corona, but this one is really not that bad, less bland even than many ’eurolagers’ I had so far.

Fresh honey style aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head. Nice light honey flavor with smooth aftertaste. Light body with very low carbonation.

Crystal clear golden with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is a little fruity, honey, light toasty. Flavor is pretty subdued. Light grain, toast, light sweetness. Fair dryness. Touch of spice in finish. A decent thirst quencher.

355 ml bottle as "Cerveza Bohemia” bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Light golden orange color; Near zero head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Small sticky lacing with fizzy small carbonation; Aroma is Strong Pale Lager-like: very sweet malt with strong corn syrup, light peaches, floral, soggy bread and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fairly light malt, with strong grains, rice, molasses, light bread, very light lemon and faint bitter grassy hops; Light body, close to watery palate; Mouth feel is close to decent macro Pale - maltyless is light but fair, lots of grains and some rice to thin it out, sweetness is quite light unlike its SPL-ish nose. Appropriate light bread and hops. Kinda okay… Hoppiness is faint grass nose, very light lemon and faint grassy hops in taste. Bitterness is very low-fi and stale for n abrupt, lowly light sweet-bitter finish; Wet after taste. Very easy and light sweet to mouth.

Comments: After having the Mexican beer-water that is Dos Equis XX, the only way for this artistically-named macro has to be up, and I am not disappointed, sort of: its buggingly sweet aroma reminds you of Euro Strong Pale, but its taste - malty with fair touch of hops - is acceptable even with strong grains and notable sweetness. Better than Budweiser, not a drain pours but there are better Pale Lagers out there.
