Golden pour. White head reduces to a thin line after time. Earthy aroma. Not much to the flavor, but light and refreshing.

fid600 (23) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2015
50 cl can from Konzum, served in a snifter. Dark yellow with medium white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is very faint, with hints of malt, grassy, hay, some metallic elements also present. Light body, medium carbonation. Taste is on the dry side, with moderate bitterness especially in the finish. Slightly watery. Unimaginative.

Senap (494) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2015
En lager är en lager som är en lager som är en lager som är en lager. Men varför heter den bavaria från Nederländerna?

Kleurplaatje (104) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Drank numerous times from draft. Clear golden brew. Mild malty aroma which is almost unnoticeable. Sweetish (malty) in terms of taste with a bit of a disturbing buttery, yet bitterish aftertaste. The buttery aspect tends to make Bavaria quite a bit of a ’fatty’ brew, which is something I do not like about it. Yet, it still is an easy to drink thirst-quencher. But nothing more.

Nothing special but it cost less than other many beers. The aroma isn’t strong but it tastes ok.

MarkoNm (1821) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium sized frothy head, white color. Very mild aroma, almost non-existant. Just some grainy notes. Taste is a tad sweet at the start with mild bitterness in the finish. Very light body, not much taste to it, but just a little something to make it crisp. Not that bad for a macro. It’s drinkable, though nothing you’d be amazed by.

77ships (5900) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015
330 ml. can Bavaria Premium Original 0.0 % next to 500 ml. can Bavaria Premium Pilsner 5.0 %. Both purchased @ Carrefour. BBF 12-2015 (first one). BBF 03-2015 (second one). Appearance is pretty much identical. Clear heavily sparkling golden, 5.0 % one is maybe a small touch hazier, both are very light colored & crystal-clear. Artificial looking egg-white chemical head, huge at first, collapses very quickly. NA version smells quite unpleasant, huge paper, hugely chemical, insecticide, something hugely revolting oily, industrial oil, motor oil,…. 5.0 % version’s smell is seemingly almost enjoyable next to it. Light phenolic, big grain alcohol, juniper berries, industrial & phenolic smelling. 5.0 % version’s taste is watery phenolic grain alcohol, chemical, industrial, harsh, juniper berries, light floral, harsh & industrial. NA version is surprisingly not too different, obv. less phenolic & grain alcohol but it mimics the flavor profile oddly well in a strange oily kind of way, there is even an odd juniper berry, watery, chemical aftertaste, phenolically-like,… Lightly papery. The 5.0 % is a bit watery, feels like industrial strength swill diluted. Which it probably is. The NA version is very watery but slightly more enjoyable lacking the industrial punch. Neither of them are very enjoyable. If you like the alcoholic one & you are hunkering for a NA version, this one does a very decent job.
