Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 500 mL Can. This one poured very lively and very frothy; it may not have had enough time to settle from a wipe-out I had on an ice patch on the way out from the store (a later visitation revealed a scanty white head that again left good lacing on the sides). Grainy aroma with a grassyness about it and a very faint note of grapefruit. The taste is light sweet malt with relatively little aftertaste followed by a clean finish. A very light bodied beer, the flavor is a bit shy but I wouldn’t call it watery by any means. Quite smooth in the mouth. I dare say the vast majority of beers of its price range are rotten beyond belief and not worth my precious time for posting beer reports here. That being said, Bavaria is my top choice in times of thin beer budgets. Bonus points for value. bazyn (2) - USA - JUN 23, 2009 does not count
From a can. At first the taste did not appeal to me but after a couple of seconds I started to like it. The only thing that I didn’t like was the colour which was too light. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Bought in a Co-Operative shop in the isle of Man, July 2011.
Pleasant aroma on opening.Clear with a small head and no lacing. Innofensive and bland Euro pils but probably the best beer on the island! rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
Aroma: The smell has some bread, wheat crackers, slightly citric, some banana and hay.azzurro (212) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Appearance: A pale straw colored clear brew, a white small head that leaves little lacing.
Taste: Starts with some white bread, not so sweet, lemon, a medium low bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a fresh texture, a medium body, a dry finish.
Overall: Not bad, refreshing and dry. ABV 5%.
Note: On-tap at beer samplin at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-07-02.
Tried the LCBO canned one. Still good, worth trying. Better than average but no clear distinction.

Looks good. I really like the aftertaste. More then average pilsener import. drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Had this can from the colder glass front cooler at the Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin USA. Poured with a huge frothy foamy textured off-white head and plenty of lace. Nice beery, light malt, light hop fresh aroma. Color is a yellow gold. Flavor’s similar to aroma, with a bit more hop bitterness. A bit thin in body. Good beer, good value.

500ml can. Looks like a pilsener, smells like a pilsener, and hey, it tastes like a pilsener! Quite smooth and refreshing, a solid all around lager. I don’t really understand the low percentile. Rate it by style, jerks. DutchDrebus (5956) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2011
Bavaria pilsener.. it’s the regular beer to drink at parties in my region. Decent pilsener, like most others. Nothing special though. kaziopiwosz (393) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Good, full hoppy taste, very bitter palate. White, medium thock foam, stays for 3 minutes. Very light, but interesting, colour. Overall, good massively produced lager.
