Very similar to Negro Modelo. So far I have learned this about Mexican beers - if it comes in a normal shaped bottle - it is terrible, but if it comes in a stubby shapped bottle, like this one, than it isn’t half bad! In fact I quite enjoyed it.

Fast fading head. Faintly sweet nose and flavor. A bit grainy

It is unfortunate that I invariably sample this with Mexican food and the wiater invariably stuffs a lime in the bottle. This is a good beer. Nicely balanced, easy drinking.

I thought I found something special at the mexican supermarket, but when I noticed the 4peso/per pricetag, I knew this one would be like all of the others. Actually, it had a bit more beer-like taste than the other 15 or so that I sampled down there.. Yes, it was a terrible week for beerhunting!

A weak effort. But better than most from South of the Border.

Ugh, another Bud, another few bucks down the drain. They’ll probably be followed by this beer. It has that neck-spasm inducing element.

This beer used to be the best Mexican beer ever. But now they changed something. The new batches are merely "pretty damn good". The old Bohemia used to have thicker gold foil around the cap, that wasn’t glued on. I guess they’re cutting costs and producing a beer that isn’t quite as good as the old one. Still pretty damn good though.

Brassy color. Head lasted all of two seconds. Malt and adjunct smell. This one is destined for the drain.
