This is poor-manís Heineken, a Netherlander lacking much charm, finesse or je ne sais quoi. Itís a bit on the cheap side, and better than many of the Americans in the same price range. Itís more clean than harsh. But is life is too short to drink bad wine, itís too short for Bavaria.

light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, no aftertaste itís like water. But gives a headache.

in the style of heineken and those other european lagers. tastes nothing very distinctive and really leaves a lot to be desired.

very heineken like beer, not as good though goes down pretty smooth but still has a very skunked smell and a rough aftertaste. still drinkable

Pale gold with a thin white head. Pretty frigginí hoppy smell for a lager...which I personally like. Really not bad at all....great after mowing the lawn or just hanging out.

Good looking lager,pale gold with a fine white head. A strange aroma dominates, hoppy??? perhaps!!! Light in flavour and on the palate. A refreshing style of lager, I donít think itís meant to be taken too seriously. Well chilled, this is OK stuff, better than another mass produced "lager" from Glasgow.

Pigs Piss comes to mind. Sickly sweet sugars overburdon any chance of malt or hops coming through. Sampled this one in Australia, marketed as "Bavaria Premium". Still the same shite lolly water under a slightly different name.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Bottled. A light golden beer with an orange tint. The aroma is quite mellow with some hops and no expected grassiness. The taste is also clean and mellow with a passable hoppiness. Quite pleasant and certainly more enjoyable for me than most beers of this style.

I really like the way this beer looks, light golden color, lively carbonation, huge creamy (maltose induced) head. Unfortunately, it stinks... that is, the aroma is unfortunate. (Whatís Dutch for "skunk?") This is very soft in the mouth and actually doesnít taste too bad in a mild, malty way. But thereís little neligible hopping, so this certainly isnít a pils... at least, a good one. Watery clean finish.

Even though a lot of people here want to say it has no backbone I detected hops taste to mine. The problem was that it seems somewhat astringent. It does have an unusual sort of a skunky smell and I am not sure if it is truly skunky or what. The only interesting thing about this beer is the hint of citrus in the aftertaste. I guess you could say this one has more in common with Mexican beer than it does with most European beer.
