OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2004
330 ml green bottle labelled Bavaria Original Brew. Pale golden colour with a mostly diminishing creamy and fizzy white head. Grassy and perfumed aroma. Starts with sweet buttery corn flavour finishing with an unpleasant oily bitterness. Light bodied and fizzy.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2004
Blatantly not from Bavaria but it does tastes a little bit like a Helles. Nice soft malt but it’s a bit milky. Not much hop going on but I guess that’s the style. Not bad.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 21, 2004
In the bottle. Smelled skunky, poured a golden pale yellow with awhite fluffy head. The head did not last too long. Odd thing was that there was no skunky taste. Mild bitterness and standard pilsner malt content. This would not hold up to most German pilsners. Very inexpensive 12-pack from the grocery store.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Almost water, I couldn’t find the premium the can was printed in it. But anyway was cool for a game, just like a Budweisser.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 Bottle. Imported from Holland. Why they bother, I don’t know. Think Budweiser with a pinch more hops. Don’t let the low price on an import fool you - it’s no better than many cheap American beers and worse than some. BUY AGAIN?: Never

LeopardMan (53) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2004
440 ml. can...NZ$12.00/dozen at the moment; who could pass it up? Pale brown; average fuzzy head. Slightlly grassy but nothing much else in terms of flavour or aroma. The aftertaste left by the the grassiness is, however, quite pleasant, IMHO. Goes well with a full stomach and a long night of sport-watching.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Well... definitely not a pilsner, at least in taste, I agree with the rating. "Family brewed"... hmph, indeed... but what does that mean? Like that it says "canned in holland", never saw that verb before on labelling. Can’t complain too much about the color... nice orange, upward flowing torrants of bubbles... but the taste... pleasing, but you have to get used to it. A twinge sweet on the afterplate. I can drink this beer, but not entirely satisfying.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Pale gold with a bit more life in the color than the Tuborg I had just prior. The head is fuzzy and dry looking, and lasts for a bit. The flavor is definitely on the adjuncty side, but not offensive. The flavor is soft, a good bit of rice, but not in a foul way. Very low bitterness and very low hop aroma. Very soft on the palate.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2004
this is another usual find in amsterdam and other places in holland: typical flavor and your favorite corn, rice, crap adjuncts that we have all learned to love....next!
