Review: Bohemia Clasica Beer

Review: Bohemia Clasica Beer

Yes, Virginia, there is more beer in Mexico than Corona.

Don’t be fooled by the dark, squat bottle. Bohemia is a fairly simple pilsner, a light gold beer that offers a nice, easy-drinking balance of sweet and bitter. There’s a distinct note of gingerbread on the nose, which is quite pleasing, and the body comes across as very fresh and full of life. The finish brings some bitterness, though the finale can run to the watery instead of the crisp.

Altogether this is a solid effort. Not quite Pacifico, but a good, food-friendly beer that is almost ubiquitous in its availability.

    I’m glad to hear that this actually tastes somewhat good when it tastes like it’s supposed to. In Minneapolis for some reason I’ve never had a non-skunked Bohemia (or Tecate for that matter), but haven’t had problems with any other Mexican beers.

      That’s because it’s a German style mex beer. If it’s rotten it’s rotten but Bohemia has a taste between modelo and heineken.
