Aroma is slightly hoppy. Appearance is medium with a slight head. Taste is lacking any depth but is better than many Mexican beers. Palate is somewhat refreshing.

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.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

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.

ComradeK (1086) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2016
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.

Grumbo (1111) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle at a restaurant in London. Poured golden with a small white head. Light malty aroma with some floral and citrus notes. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Light body, slight creaminess to texture. Malty finish. It’s ok.

JorgeLee (1639) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle, consumed in the hotel room in Playa del Carmen with Don Sirloin takeaway. Deepish yellow hint of gold. This has a touch more backbone and less grim corn than most Mexican lagers. Some proper malt and an elusive waft of hop flavour, if still lacking bitterness. Not terrible.

Golden in color with a light tan head. Very malty aroma. Malty and cereal grain flavors. Good with a lime wedge.
