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.

You’ve been out shopping and you’ve gotten some good stuff: about 20 gallons of drinking water, three grains of barley and one teeny hop. You leave them on the kitchen counter for a month in the hot sun. When you return, they’re all still sitting there, unchanged. You pick up a gallon of water and take a sip...

One of the better mexican pilsners, not that it means anything. Thin and watery to me with slight bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma slightly hoppy but clean...Appearance is standard gold with moderate white head...Flavor is better-rounded than many Mexican offerings--hops fairly crisp and a more substantial malt foundation than most...Medium-dry finish...Nothing remarkable here, mind you, but near the head of the pack of Mexican lager-pilseners on the mass market.
