Bohemia

Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma

Mexico

As the guy sitting next to me said, "It's like a Guinness but not as rich." I will tend to agree with that statement, especially since I don't feel like writing my own review. Of course, this guy wasn't any more helpful, following up his original words with such bombshells as, "I like it", "I'd try it again", and "You'd better mention my name in the review".

It was good, but not exactly the nation's best. Certainly worth the look.

Why have I not had this beer before? What the hell was I thinking? I've seen this on the shelf at the liquor store countless times and passed it by. What a shame. I was recently exposed to this beer in Ruidoso, New Mexico. We had hit all the touristy restaurants. This one, though, could best be described as a "joint". Standard fare AND Mexican food. Clean inside, but no frills. The tables and chairs looked as if they were bought at auction from a circa 1960's Denny's. All they had on the beer menu was the standard BMC, Corona, and Bohemia. Rolling my eyes, I sighed and ordered the Bohemia. Hello...what's this? Very refreshing. Nice hops character, full flavor. Clean and crisp. And paired with the best plate of green chili pork I've ever had the pleasure to savor. This joint also made their own chips, and concocted their own salsa--hot enough for me to have to order TWO Bohemias. Oh, by the way: the waitress patiently instructed me the correct pronunciation is "Bo-A-mia". The "H" is silent, you stupid Anglo tourist. Sigh...live and learn.
