of all the places to find Chinese beer, i didnt think Bavaria would be on the list. picked it up cuz i wanted to try something different. good thing it was cheap. the Chinese do a lot of things very well, beer isnt one of those things. id rate this beer marginally higher than bud light, only for the higher alcohol content.

Twelve ounce green bottle. Date stamp on neck: 6/8/14. (fresh).

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a quarter-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and yields stringy and spotty lace.

N: Malty and grainy, yeasty, with some grassy hay notes.

T: Clean, slightly tang/twang of stale grain, bland.

M: Light body and semi-medium carbonation. Thin finish.

O: Not much here, like an empty shell.

1.05/5  rDev -62%

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear light golden body, rising bubbles. A white head does a magic trick and disappears. No lacing.

Aroma: Cabbage, skunk, faint grains.

Taste: Even worse than the aroma, cooked veggies and sour apples come out.

Mouthfeel: Unpleasantly sticky.

Overall: Sour and skunky. Nothing resembling beer.
