Not bad for the price, but had a similar watery feel as that of the mass produced american beers.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Aha! We have a king! Bavaria Pilsener, sovereign in a green can, ruler of all the cheap beers! I must say, this lager did nothing to tickle my fancy, but at the same time it didn’t make my face implode like most bitter, cheap lagers do. I remember when my friend burst into the apartment, proudly decreeing his purchase of “the ultimate” beer, holding aloft Bavaria Pilsener. The Frenchman (roommate) and I both gave a derisive chortle and gave the poor sap a sip of a superior brew. However, I think the amateur beer drinker had a point. Of all the cheap and disappointing beers I’ve had (mostly lagers) this is by far the most tolerable. It’s like saying, of all the nasty diseases a person could get like leprosy, typhoid, Chlamydia, gangrene and such, compared to them the flu seems downright peachy. I didn’t even look at the color because I was too busy feeling rebellious drinking straight from the can, but the smell was your simple lager smell. It sort of reminds me of beer in cooking; basic and smells like…beer. The taste is your typical cheap swill without the contrition and guilt that comes afterwards. If I wanted to have a second beer after a quality one, maybe this wouldn’t be so bad. Real guilt is having a good beer when you’re too drunk to appreciate it. So, for those late night college parties when the good liquor is gone, Bavaria Pilsener for pittance it is. I don’t intend to find myself in a situation like that anytime soon, though.

Pours pale with a big, quick fading white head. The aroma is grassy, grainy and skunky. The flavor is grassy and dry. The mouthfeel is sparkling, finish is metallic.

A sad replica of what once was beer, now a not so sweet soda. Total lack of everything that makes a good beer.

I don’t call it a "pilsener" its a cat. 2 beer. golden color, less taste, no bitterness, lots of carbonation.

Pours a pale yellow color. Aromas of vegtables, grass, and malt. Flavor of dry malt with ahop finish.

This is decent European lager. Apperance is nice when poured into a glass. Nice, thick foam and very good lacing. Aroma is OK, but gets pretty sulfury as it warms. Taste is pretty decent and has a nice malty end. I’ve had this one in the green bottle and the 16 oz. can. Gotta say, the green bottles are usually skunked. Prefer this one out of a can.

bottle - Poured a decent looking yellow/gold, almost no head. There isn’t much going on with this beer. Palate is thin and the flavor is quite malty. The hops are very subdued. It’s better than having a Bud, but that’s not saying much.

Nice gold color with hardly any head or aroma. Has a faint grainy malt flavor with medium body. There’s not much here.
