2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Damn my brother-in-law. He knows this style ain’t it for me, but I’ve never rated it so I’m compelled to at least pop one. Golden-yellow pour, minimal head vanishes before you can blink. Sweet, slightly hoppy nose...some malts in the flavor, but I’m having to search hard for them. Not a lot of bitterness to challenge what malt there is. Thin, but not offensive. Just not very good. What the heck, maybe I’ll drink another---but that’s it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Tiny bit fruity, but think its the malt. Moderately sweet. Some straw/corn flavor. Very light.

Backlog. Bottle when in Mexico. Clear golden color, one finger white foamy head, recedes quickly with some lacing ; aroma malty grainy, grass; moderate sweet, slightly bitter; light to medium body, oily texture; finish sweetbitter. Nothing special, like the bottle though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Distinct ’fat’ mouthfeel - pleasant enough - mediocre - not refreshing - a bit sweet and not bitter enough. Not terrible just meh - won’t get again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a 1" frothy white head that rapidly recedes with some mild lacing. Color is clear light gold with moderate streaming bubbles.
Aroma: fairly mild, but pickup some yeast, biscuit, and a bit of herbal hops.
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat oily with a quite dry finish.
Flavor: biscuit and cracker, a bit of fruit and lemon in the finish.
Overall: enjoyable and well made to the style. Nothing off-putting.
