grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Sweet, lightly malty, and weak. Huge pile of billowy white head on top of straw liquid. Malt flavors were quite decent but the hops were nowhere to be found.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 27, 2003
Golden colour, clean appereance, good bubbly head, even if not really persistent. The flavour is quite malty and very watery. Not enough hoppy to be considered a decent pilsener.

Commercially speaking, not in the same league as a Heineken, or a Becks. Monetarilly speaking, a cheap alternative. Pretty good hoppy taste for a small price. If your short of cash, this one will do in a pinch.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2003
This one pours a clear, typically golden yellow lager color with a small, bubbly white head. The head dissipates and the beer has a big skunk aroma at first, but the skunkiness recedes revealing some mild hop floral notes and a bit of malty sweetness. It has a light body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is slightly hoppy up front, but everything is lost in the bland, watery finish. It has some slightly sweet corn notes against the traditional malt notes. Mediocre at best.

Radek Kliber (7290) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 10, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2006 Can. 500ml Appearance of typical pale lager , perhaps its white top is lightly neater than most of its kind. Light , grainy aroma , very pale , hint of alcohol. Thin bodied , sweet palate. Very low hop content. Light yet dry alcohol at finish. First time tried in 90 and I might take another 16 years to have another.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2002
The beer in this green bottle was....skunky! suprise suprise. I am so over green bottles. Other than that it was a typical macro boring pils with some hops.

If this web page was called rateskunkybeer.com, then this would replace Westy as number 1. Since it is not, it gets what it deserves.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2002
Light golden colour. A little hoppy in the aroma. Is quite dry in the flavour and has some sweetness. Finish is without the bitterness, I prefer. Not a bad pilsener though

A poor man's Heineken that actually ended up tasting better than Heineken. Feels light in the mouth and sparkly. Not great by any means but if you drink non-special beers and are looking for some sophistication, look no farther than Bavaria; Don't buy the Heiny!
