3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned. Small white head, clear golden color. Smell is sweet, but taste is more bitter than sweet. Don’t get me wrong it is still little sweet, but there is bitterness too. Aroma of sugar, some grains and must. High alcohol percent, but I can’t taste any alcohol. Nice beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
As Bavaria 8.6 Original from 50 cl can. Decent, coarse but fairly stable (though eventually dissipating), snow white head over a deep golden coloured, clear beer with quiet fizz. Strongish but not very pleasant, sweet aroma of cane sugar, honey, tons of iron in a purely metallic way, raw vegetables, grass, gin, rubber. Sugary sweetish onset, with something blandly honeyish lurking in the background, sweetbread, evolving into a lightly but artificially caramelly, rather thin ’graininess’, very metallic, leading to a wry finish of lingering grain sweetness, a faint hint of simple grassy hops, a lot of wodka-like alcohol and of course, adding insult to injury, a chemical, burnt plastic-like astringency. Petrol for alcoholics as most of these cheap heavy lagers are. I have no idea whether this is better than its AB InBev competitors of the infamous Atlas brand, which were sitting next to it in the Albert Heijn shelf; I reckon this is a bit less offending, but it is still made with wrong intentions, though technically more or less correct in comparison with certain other strong pale ’Euro’ lagers. This style in general is about as bad as beer gets, but this particular example is not the worst, I admit.
