Pale yellow pour with a white head. Straw-like aroma with a bit of pale malt, cereal, and sweet grain. Strong garbage aroma with a bit of lemon sourness. Quite metallic on the palate. A bit of apple sweetness, some cereal, straw, and grass. Light malt notes and sour grain. Quite bad. Dedollewaitor (16055) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014

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.
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)MiP (15650) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007
Rich gold, nice persistent tight spongy-to-rocky head, looks good. But the bottle is a pale green, so an automatic -1 for not taking care against getting light-struck. Woh, as I pour thereís a huge limey aroma, this reminds me so much of the Russian Efes, itís almost an exact mimic. Corniness comes out a bit later too, and thatís still from a distance, Iíve not put my nose near it yet. Closer up, itís a bit blander. Taste, again, reminds me of the russian Efes: blandish malts, cornyish if anything, metallic copper/bronze hops. Less limey though, and a bit heavier and fuller, that is sweeter, in the palate. Pretty bad pale coloured lager, but at least it has some character, and isnít a disaster. Finish sweet and corny and bronze again. Ergh, 70ml down, I wonder if I can make it through the whole 500ml...
Can, 5%. Clear golden colour, stable white head. Grainy flavour, quite watery. Low bitterness. Benzai (15458) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2012

Coming from the Southern part of the Netherlands Iím obligated to say that I love this beer :) Honest rating: just another mass produced pilsener. Nothing wrong, nothing spectacular.
Bottle (25cl) at Room - last night in Split, Croatia. Clear yellow - white head. Hay, straw, white bread, citrus, grassy, nice hoppy. Dry finish. bhensonb (15088) - 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. gunnfryd (14824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2009
Can. Pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, grain. Flavour is sweet, malt, hay, fruit, grain. Boring beer. DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2013
Can. Pale straw golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma of corn, graininess, dusty hints and faint grassy hints. Sweetish grainy flavor, a bit corny, with light maltiness and a finish with faint bitterness. Light-bodied. Not too offensive, but nothing good. imdownthepub (14467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Tin, 500ml from One Stop, Cheltenham. Pale yellow gold with fizzed head. This is the 5% version. Sweet vanilla malt, thin with a chemical, chalky type note. Little substance other than malty sweetness. Dodgy.
