3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,25L. A bit darker, clear, golden colour with frothy white head. Fruity aroma with some notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is somwhere between sweet and bitter, alcohol is present, too. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. For all those who mess the name of the beer with it’s ABV: this beer was brewed for the first time at the date 8.6.1986 and that’s why it has that name. It has nothing to do with it’s ABV.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. Pours light gold with a medium, frothy head. Aroma is petrol, alcohol and a little wheat. Taste is sweet to start, with icing sugar in the finish and marzipan in the aftertaste. I maybe missing the point, but why is a beer that’s called 8.6, 7.9%?

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bavaria 8.6 Original - Special Blond Beer - Uma Lager de aroma forte de malte com um toque frutado. Sabor amargo, contudo bem balanceado. Apesar de 7.9% abv, o alcoól não se destaca nessa cerveja de coloração ouro! Tem um ’q’ de baunilha no retrogosto. Apesar de forte, é uma cerveja refrescante. Servir gelada.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Es sieht im Glas noch "normal" aus, aber das wars dann auch. Fiese alkoholische Marzipannote. Im Antrunk betäubt der Alkohol gleich den Gaumen, allenfalls etwas Malz ist zu erschmecken. Der plörrige Abgang hat auch ne Alunote. Grottig!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured in a tall glass frm a small can of 330 ml.
Pours a golden yellow coloured beer, very clean. White soapy head, 2 fingers.
Smell is of malts.
Nice taste, bitter that leaves you with as sweetness.
thin in body and medium carbonated.
The 7.9 alcohol is there, but not so noticeable, it’s just says "Hi" and leaves, to mind its own bussiness. On your liver.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden with a white head - aroma has some malt - taste has some malt and ends with alcohol heat - and the alcohol heat continues into the finish - a little to much alcohol heat

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Cloyingly sweet aroma of candy, corn, and pale malt. Chalky aroma, some bread, and a hint of yeast. The flavor is slightly chalky with some bread and malt sweetness. A slight grassiness, light tartness, and mild yeast flavors. A hint of alcohol, too. Really odd.
