This beer is of the Dortmunder variety. Its high proportion of malts and fine-quality hops, as well as its golden color and appetizing head, make Bavaria Gold a beer of European type and character. The sensory balance of freshness, body and bitterness, together with a jealously guarded production process, make Bavaria Gold a premium-quality beer that has been in production since the 1930s.
At some point the ABV went from 4% to 5.1%.

Country ticking? Why yes and thank you Brian. Bottle to lager glass, the appearance was a soft yellow color with a fast rising carbonation hitting a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of foamy to fizzy white head. No lace. The aroma had some sweet corn and light bready malts. Super light grassy to floral hops. The flavor was sweet along with the aftertaste and finish, slightly sticky yet acceptable. The feel was light bodied with a super big sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed fine. ABV seemed fine. Overall, though there’s not much here, honestly, it does the trick on a hot day, can’t go wrong with that.

[email protected] Jose. Golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is sugary and malty, and the flavour is malty with yeastiness and dryness. Overall a poor pale lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle) Pours a golden body with a small white fizzy head. Aroma of corn grain, husk, and florals. Flavor of herbs, corn, light florals, and cereal.

bottle, in carrillo. pale golden, clear with a reluctant head; not exactly an adjunct-free aroma, notes of corn and rice, light wet hay; almost no bitterness, unpopped popcorn, some alcohol showing as it warms; pretty bad

12oz bottle. Light amber color, nice heavy medium head and some lace. Taste is surprisingly good, malts and hops and a well balanced bitterness. A drinkable beer. My go to easy access beer in Costa Rica.

Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of metal. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Well, I’ll be darned...Florida actually makes a drinkable brewski. I’ve tried pretty much all their brews (other than goofy shit like Rock Limon) and this stands out above all the rest as a very drinkable brew that’s not laden with defects as their other products are. Decent malt (for this sort of beer at least) and noticeable hop aroma start things off right, and the flavor is reasonably clean with good finishing bitterness. Just as savvy visitors to Mexico (or Mexican restaurants) know that Bohemia is the one that’s actually decent (not Negra Modelo as so many assume), it’s nice to discover there is one factory brew in CR that can be consumed without wincing.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Bottle in Costa Rica. Pours a golden color with white head. Corn, pils, grainy aromas and flavors. Light, but enjoyable lager. I enjoyed this more than the Pilsen, but slightly less than the Imperial.

Appearance: a clear golden color with a thick head. Aroma: hay, corn and some citrus notes. Tastes like grass and sweet malts. A little bit watery.

Lubiere (13772) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, crisp malt with light grassy German hops, light metallic notes. In mouth, a smooth crisp malt with mineral notes and light German hops, not bad. Can from Auto Mercado San Jose.

29th March 2014: Punteranus, Costa Rica. Once we had tried all three beers available at our first bar we decided to have a stroll around and see if we could find somewhere else to spend our Dollars: we did find somewhere and they had this along with two more new brews for me (Bavaria Light and Rock Lemon: not ideal, but a tick is a tick sometimes). Reminded me of the Dutch Bavarian Lager you can get in Holland and the UK: golden, bright and clean looking, Odourless almost and devoid of taste, but a typical lager based beer nonetheless. It was a lot better than what was to follow!
