Rated 3/16/13. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a lighter straw color with a good bit of translucence to its body. The head is a two finger white shade. Bubbly as can be, it fades away quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass, either. S: Grains and light maltiness, about what I expect from a Mexican lager. Oh, and some noble hops. Gee, imagine that, noble hops in a lager! Whodathunkit? I also notice some tart lemon/lime qualities. T: The lime tone in the aroma moves down to the tongue, supporting a sweet malt base and faint yet zesty hop bite. Adjunct notes are thankfully kept in check. Simple as can be, but it just works so well with what it has. M: Light and crisp. Carbonation isn’t overbearing, and it’s superbly drinkable. O: This isn’t just good for a Mexican lager - it’s a legitimately good beer, period. Merely drinking this makes me think about 78F sunny days laying on the patio without a care in the world. This beer has just given me A) a go-to in Mexican restaurants, B) something to buy for non-beer-drinking guests when hosting a party, and C) something to actually enjoy besides margaritas should I ever end up vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

Golden yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of grain, corn, malts and caramel. Taste of faint caramel, grains, corn and sweet malts. Light bodied, medium carbonation, miniscule hop finish. Drinkable only over 100F outside and beer under 40F!

AdolfoCC (182) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Es una cerveza de color dorado, cristalina, de buena carbonatación. El aroma destacan las maltas y sobre todo el lúpulo, de carácter noble y herbal. En boca nos ofrece lo mismo que el paladar; con trago refrescante, con un buen balance del dulzor de maltas y el lúpulo herbal noble utilizado. Su cuerpo es ligero, carbonatación media alta, bastante refrescante. Conclusión: una agradable cerveza industrial.

12 oz bottle at a Mexican restaurant. I remember seeing a version of this in the DR so it’s fun to compare. Nice to see a pale lager without any skunk. Grains with some soft spice. Definitely a, throw a lime in and have 10 of these, beers. A preferred Mexican lager for me.

Better than some of the regular crappy Mexican lagers like corona and sol. Some chemical astringency that passes for bitterness at least. Bottle in D.F.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 Pale clear pour with almost no head. Faint sweet grain aroma & taste that’s a little reminiscent of a Kolsch ale. Good crisp pale lager.

355ml bottle. I can’t comment on the pour, as I had it from the bottle. There is a grainy, almost white chocolate feel to the aroma, as well as some light grassy hops. Light grass and leafy hops up front give way to quite a sweet malt body, quite possibly with a few adjuncts in there. Again the white chocolate feel is present, leading into a lightly hoppy finish. A curiously flavoured beer for a lager. Drinkable, but not too exciting.

Originally rated on 6/2/08. One of the better mexican beers out there.(for what thats worth) Golden in color, thin head, tastes a little grainy with slightly sweet malt flavor. o.k. finish, not much aftertaste. I have to say it was better than i expected.

De Cerveceria Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma "Bohemia Clara" una American Standar Lager, American Adjunct Lager o Generic Lager dependiendo a quien se le pregunte con un 4.8% ABV, este estilo es una reinterpretación estadounidense de una Pilsner Czech, este estilo es originario de la época de la postguerra, donde los cereales como la malta eran escasos debido a la poca inversión que se tenia en ciertos sectores de la industria agrícola, por lo tanto se empezaron a usar maltas mas baratas y de producción popular como el maíz y el arroz que son mas rendidoras sin embargo afectan el cuerpo y el sabor de la cerveza, generalmente este estilo ocupa del 30% a el 80% de maltas de este tipo. Actualmente este es uno de los estilos con mayor popularidad y reproducción en el mundo debido a que prácticamente la puede tolerar casi cualquier paladar. En apariencia esta cerveza cuenta con una muy delgada corona de espuma, escasa retención y poca carbonatación, cuerpo acuoso y de color pajizo y de lo mas bajo en la escala del SRM(es decir de lo mas clara). En olor no es nada compleja, notas a pan, dulzor de maíz, algo de lúpulo floral muy tímido. En el sabor muestra principalmente un carácter dulce de adjuntos en especifico se siente el dulzor a maíz, pan blanco, agua mineral, leve nota acida y un ligero tono seco al final. Mejor que varias Lager norteamericanas pero su cometido sigue siendo el mismo parecerse a las demás lager genéricas y ser bastante sesionables para poder tomar hasta el cansancio sin saturar el paladar.
