1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned. Brought back from a friend somewhere on the Arabian peninsula. Vegetable nose. Extremely watery and fizzy. Bavaria is one of the worst breweries in the world...

Clearly this is Bavaria’s export to the Latin American countries. I found it in the WalMart in Cancun (roughly $2 for a six-pack). A pretty standard low-end pale lager, noteworthy only for a more-bitter-than-average finish in my opinion.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled in Cabo San Lucas, Mx. Golden amber color. Head is big and soapy. Interestingly, the foam doesn’t so much dissipate as it does collapse. It leaves a lacing like over cooked oatmeal. No carbonation at all. Nose is rice as is the flavor. A bit of malt.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Skunky and grainy aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, fair lace. Bit grainy and bitterness but that's it, watery. Thought this was just an export beer but a friend of mine bought it for me in Limburg (southern part of the Netherlands).

Can. The aroma is somewhat sweet and fruity. The flavor is bitter and a little floral but not bad. I found this in Hong Kong of all places. How these random European beers end up in Hong Kong grocery stores is worth a study.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can: Pale yellow, pours a decent head that quickly fades. Taste is quite watery, fizzy and flat. I can´t guess how it ended up in Mexico, for an export from Holland it´s trully disappointing.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear gold lager with a average white diminishing head that leaves a decent lacing. Soft aroma based on malty grains and hoppy herbs and grass. Typically lagerish. Sweet initial flavor but extremely watery character which leaves little space to bitterness. Soft carbonated and I would say it tastes like a watery "macro lager". At least it’s clean.

Best before 10-2007. I hate to think would it would taste like after that date. I bought this 6-pack in Mexico, just needing some swill. I thought this might’ve been a domestic. Such surprise when back aboard the ship this turned out to be Dutch beer. At least the colour was decent, and at 318 pesos for 6 cans, the cheapest beer I oculd find in Acapulco. The smallish head ran away and hid almost immediately; should’ve taken this as a hint of things to come, that and the ’curious’ aroma; I cannot place what the scent is. Taste is simply not pleasant, nor is the aftertaste. Difficult to describe is the best I can do. I’d rather have had a Corona...
