Yep, this is what I love about Europe - you can drive 5 hours to drink beer in Bavaria OR you can name your really really terrible beer Bavaria and save the trip. I think Ill start naming new beers after States... like Arkansas - then youll KNOW its really terrible before you even try it...

500 ml bottle. The evening was fine, so I didnt bother myself and drank the beer outdoors without pouring. Reminded me of Tuborg Green a lot. Yet less "hopped" than the latter. Light grassy taste with some metallic malts. Not the worst pilsner I had.

PhillyCraft (6898) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
At multiple dumpy and cigarette smoke infested bars on the leidseplein. Ughh. Pours clear or yellow gold. Taste and smell of macro beer: toast, dead hops, water, and shit malt. This kind of liquid will surely cause headaches if drank in qty.

czlowiekwiadro (861) - POLAND - APR 20, 2017
zapach lekko słodowy, ze sporą ilością zielonego jabłka, trochę roślinnej zieleni i ził. kolor złoty, klarowny, piana biała, raczej mało obfita i niezbyt trwała. w smaku pełne, słodowe, lekki aceton, sporo jabłek, pestek i kurzu, trochę ził i metaliczności. goryczka wyraźna, ale niezbyt przyjemna, ostra, gryząca - zioła, lekki grapefruit, ogonki i pestki z jabłek. nasycenie wysokie

Tried the LCBO canned one. Still good, worth trying. Better than average but no clear distinction.

eunck (190) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2017
More (grassy) hoppiness than other Pale Lagers, decent malt taste, above average bitterness and nothing really bad to say about this beer other than the fact that theres not too much good to say either. Ok, but not too much taste.

BranikMan (40) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2017
Refreshing Dutch beer (whats up with teh name Bavaria, tryna trick us huh?) but it does the job. Tasty on a hot day and drinking it ice cold. No huge taste but nothing bad about it. Like Heinecken but without the bad flavors the big H delivers. Drink when not in mood for stronger tasting Czech Pilsners.

Bottle. Pale Gold in colour. Malty; grainy malts, some caramel. Hoppy; some grassy hop bitterness. Fruity malt with balancing hops. Sweet-bitter malty easy drinking lager. (2008)

marcor (7) - - MAR 2, 2017 does not count
66cl bottle, 5.0% volumes bought from Amazon but commonly found in superstores. In the cheap beers section. Very hard to find some taste at all, almosts feels like water, only good if drank ice fresh and you are really thirsty
