GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 6, 2005
Pours clear, golden fairly carbonated. Aroma is a bit skunky and grassy. Typical watered down, mass produced stuff.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2005
Medium gold-straw body with a medium, foamy, white head. Decent lager-malt aroma, floral/herbal continnental hops. Faint pancake-dough aroma. The floral aroma almost feels fake, like a dryer sheet. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavor. Moderately bitter finish. Decent crisp bitter finish. Less flavor than the aroma indicated, but still that same "fake" floral element. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A tinge of the typical pale lager ’honey sweetness’ as it warms.

nothing special here, just a light colored lager that is however not offensive. I cant say that this beer has any good qualities, but it doesnt have any really bad qualities. I could drink 1 or 30 of these.

Suttree (5543) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2005
This beer is imported, I’m assured by the label, so I’ve got that going for me. However, its called "Bavaria", but its from Holland. That seems, I don’t know, deceptive somehow. I mean, really, You can’t just call your beer Bavaria and then boom, you’ve got yourself a Bavarian beer. You can’t fool me. This is a standard green bottle importedlager, by the way.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2005
I liked this one. Yeah, it’s light, but it is a pilsener. Not a lot of malt flavor but has a good hop finish. Light gold in color with a big snow white head. The head lasted and left clearly defined sip lines. It is refreshing. The 8 ounce bottles require two just to score and satisfy.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Sampled from can. Bavaria pours a brilliant gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is mild with uncharacteristic DMS-like characteristics. Flavor is balanced with a good malt backbone and pretty much devoid of character. Light to medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and easy to drink. Simply unsophisticated and common.

Much sweeter than expected, no skunk at all, which was a surprise. May have purchased the bber the way this brewer meant it to be served. Holland may be saved.

Another medicinal skunk lager, yay. I thought brewers were using beta hop oils to get around that now. A little malt under there. Clear with some lacing. Very watery and low in flavor but has some delicate floral notes intermingled with industrial lager harshness. Wouldn’t be a bad keg party beer.

Can. Golden colour with a slim white head. Aroma of malts. taste of malts with some hops. Not bad.
