very little foam, ordinary golden appearance (disguised by the brown bottle). smells of barley, golden wheat taste, refreshing with a nice sweet aftertaste

Fresh honey style aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head. Nice light honey flavor with smooth aftertaste. Light body with very low carbonation.

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.

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.

A decent cheap beer in Mexico More like a brown ale, flavorful and easy to drink. Bitter and ours dark brown. Had in Mexico ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Hop_Hedonist (233) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2014
Distinct ’fat’ mouthfeel - pleasant enough - mediocre - not refreshing - a bit sweet and not bitter enough. Not terrible just meh - won’t get again.

foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 21, 2014
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.

Bohemia stands alongside Dos Equis Ambar and Negra Modelo in the esteemed category of "easy-to-get Mexican macrobrews that don’t suck." No need for self-delusion here, these kinds of beers don’t come close to offering the complexity or execution that craft drinkers crave. Still, these beers have their place. With its smooth malt character and crisp hops, Bohemia is right at home with inexpensive food and a few friends. It’s definitely not impressive, but it’s a solid go-to option when selection is limited.
