AS Bavaria Classica @ Italy. 66cl bottle. Pours clear gold with a off white head. Nose is moderate malty and hoppy. Grain and hay. Quite dry. Watery mouthfeel. No off flavors but quite boring.

harrisoni (13884) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
66cl bottle drunk on a train to London. Pale gold colour. Smells faintly of perfume but not in a good way. No discernable lager flavours. This was a drain pour. Reaaly unpleasant

yngwie (13801) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2014
Can. A dense, finger-thick white head forms over a clear golden colored body. The aroma has cooked vegetables, some pale malts and a touch of generic fruityness. Medium body, pretty dry, with a nice carbonation. Grainy, fruity flavor with some cooked vegetables and wet cardboard. A faint bitterness towards the end. Not very good this one. 140117

Can. (as Tesco Premium Lager, 5%) A clear, slightly pale golden beer topped by a small, white head. Grainy and malty on the nose, quite sweetish, with a touch of fruits. Malty-sweet, grainy and quite weak flavor with a quite pleasant bitterness. The bitterness is actually the best part of this beer, else it’s too grainy and sweet, also in the finish. Medium body. Decent, and sort of quenching even though it’s on the sweet side. Don’t see any reason to re-visit though. (081220)

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Bottled (BB 07/2004)
Typical lager outfit: yellow golden with foamy white head. Grassy aroma. Plain and simple with grassy hops and malty backbone.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2001
UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 Golden colour with heavy grassy-hoppy aroma...plus hints of graininess. Thick bready malts blend with grassy noble hops on the palate. Moderately bitter. There is a definite huskiness, however and traces of alcohol that slightly undermine what otherwise is a pretty respectable lager.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
As Bavaria Holland Beer. Light grassy aroma. Gold color with decent white head. Starts with malt, thin to medium bodied, as carbonation leaves, the malt dominates, and then some hop arrives. However, the sweetness seems a bit much for the amount of hop. Drinkable, but there are many better pilseners. Chacon son gout.
