I have mentioned this before but I’ll remind everyone, Bavaria is from the Netherlands not Bavaria. Well Bavaria 8.6 should be ashamed to align itself with Bavaria. This beer is a strong blond with 7.9% alcohol, although a strong blonde with alcohol may be a good thing, but not in this case. First sip not too bad, a slightly sweet taste, but then it hits you like a Dion Phaneuf body check (hockey starts tonight), the alcohol taste is overwhelming. Really this is something the homeless might like, so if all you want is high alcohol to get a quick cheap drunk then go ahead. For the rest of you avoid! On another note if you’ve noticed a similarity in pictures lately, they were taken in my backyard on my patio.
