Piss yellow. No head. Aroma of wilting hay. Semi-sweet. Some hops in the finish. Terrible.

I was really happy with this beer. Light in all ways, with a clean hop character, nice and sharp. Tasted great on the beach. Kind of like a good version of Heineken. Yes I actually did bring a glass out onto the sand with me. It was great because everyone thought i was way over the top.

Commercially speaking, not in the same league as a Heineken, or a Becks. Monetarilly speaking, a cheap alternative. Pretty good hoppy taste for a small price. If your short of cash, this one will do in a pinch.

Poured a small white quick dissolving head with fine-small bubbles. There was not much lacing on the sides of my glass. The body was yellow and carbonation was observed with this brew. It had a fruity, citrusy aroma in my opinion. It had a bitter taste and an aftertaste.

This brew poured a small head of fine to large sized white bubbles that soon disappeared. It had a straw yellow body with carbonation continuously rising from the bottom of my mug. It has a strong hop aroma and a fizzy somewhat bitter start that lingers well into its bitter finish. There is actually some hidden flavors other than those from the hops that hides itself well in the finish. They were somewhat floral in flavor.

A poor man's Heineken that actually ended up tasting better than Heineken. Feels light in the mouth and sparkly. Not great by any means but if you drink non-special beers and are looking for some sophistication, look no farther than Bavaria; Don't buy the Heiny!

pretty skunked out for the most part...this is a step above something such as a bmc product..but nothing really stands out. it tastes exactly as you'd expect it to..and that isnt saying much

Bavaria/Netherlands? Mmmm. This is quite a bland pilsner that is being sold everywhere in the UK at the moment. It may be omnipresent, but its not that good.

Flat stale looking beer with a flatly hopped aroma. The beer has a relatively dry flavour with a sweetish aftertaste. An average lager.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2003 In the Heineken leauge but maybe a notch above. Yellow appearance with a slighty skunky aroma. Taste is a little bitter but mostly non deScript with a hint of skunk, what a shock from a green bottle. Palate is faintly bitter but mostly smooth. Overall a decent pilsner and more of a "true pilsner" than Miller Lite but nothing to seek out really.
