DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 29, 2007
15-Aug-07 (12 oz bottle: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Dark straw in color with a slight haze, but even immediately after the pour, barely any carbonation bubbles rise through the beer. So, not an especially impressive appearance to this beer, but it does have a white, rocky, fluffy head that leaves plenty of lace near the top of the glass. Grainy, vaguely bready malt aroma doesn’t provide much inspiration to take a sip. The bready malts taste fairly sweet and become almost honey-like on the palate toward the finish, but a bit of stale, papery flavor comes through in the finish as well. Hops makes the mildest of contributions in the attack, but then quickly and totally disappears in the evolution, and without that mild bitterness, the beer doesn’t have a pleasant aftertaste. Light-medium in body and carbonation, but lacking the crisp, clean flavor and mouthfeel one expects from a premium lager. Overall, this premium lager lacks a quality malt flavor, needs a more balanced finish, and is simply way too sweet to be taken seriously. Won’t buy this again.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a yellow color with a white fizzy head. Sweet aroma. Some hops, but in general the taste is pretty muted... like many Euro lagers. All in all, nothing to exciting.

CanadaCam (109) - CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
500ml can into a pint glass. Slight corn aroma, pours nice golden colour with a hoppy-tasting head. Decent lacing on the glass. A little too much aftertaste for my liking, but overall it’s not a bad lager.

gilvanblight (826) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2007
Okay really not sure if I have the right beer. The can I drank from sys Bavaria Holland, but I don’t see that on the site. I see a Holdandia at 3% but this cearly states %5 alc./vol. Perhaps in Canada this was named Holland? Anyroad, going this this being the beer. Slight reddish tinge to an otherwise generic yellow pour. Thin but firm head. Odd scent reminiscent of candle wax with a touch of citrus. Very stron taste at first but fades quick with a nearly clean finish. Unfortunately that finish is a bit waxy. The taste is odd as is the scent. A bit of hops, then some citrusy grapefruit, then a horribly bitter bit. Overall not that bad, but not something I need to have again.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2007
Crystal clear orange gold with a small frothy head and a small number of medium sized bubbles coursing upwards. Fairly sweet malty aroma typical of the euro lagers. Not offensive at all, but rather bland. A bit of lemon comes through on tasting, along with a sweet flavour with a tinge of bitterness. The sweet doughy malt lingers in the mouth for a while after swallowing, neither good nor bad but just there. Some rubber seems to be in the taste too. Thin and light and quite quaffable, but not particularly sessionable.

TaxiDriver (1779) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle. Moderate hoppy, sweet. Yellow clear body, large white creamy head. Sweet flavor, short duration. Light body, watery, soft carbonation. Nothing special...

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2007
330 ml bottle. Medium carbonation, no head. Light beer. All right for a one time but not my favorite.

Light yellow orange color with white head. Grainy nose with faint metallic hint. Corn body with metallic hints.

A very normal lager. It was an offer (bigger can than 330ml) in supermarket in Cyprus and i have taste it. All typical

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2007
From bottle. Bought this beer at my local corner store. Im struggling for beer lately. It was called Bavaria Holland Beer and was definitely 5%. Malty aroma later settling to hints of chemicals. Very clear in appearance. Surprisingly sweet with a little flavour of hops and malt. Had a cheap feel to it but drink this after San Miguel you would think it was the finest Bavarian beer ever.
