Bohemia Clásica

Today I'm drinking Bohemia Clásica brewed by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma in Monterrey, Mexico. I was approached by their Ad Agency to see if I'd like to do a review of this beer. Of course I said yes, and they sent me a six pack at no charge. I just need to do a review and give my honest opinion, no other strings attached. Talking to Total Wine's Ed Roberts, I don't even think this beer is distributed in South Florida. The bottle is one of those fat stubby bottles. The label is very simple, with a small depiction of a Mexican warrior. The cap and neck were covered with gold foil.

The aroma is full of corn and grain, and it is sweet. Sweet corn flavors to start, very smooth. Those sweet flavors meet some hoppy bitterness, balancing it slightly, but this beer remains on the sweet side throughout. Medium body, not watery or thin at all. Carbonation is good--I could have even used a little more. A bit boring, but sometimes boring is OK. A refreshing and decent beer.
