Light-hazed golden with a temperate effervesce and a white head that fades to a scummy film. Pale malt and sour green grapes in the aroma, a bit dusty. A hint of metallica starts the flavor that is otherwise smoothly malted, and there’s a mild, herbal bitterness to finish. Palate is dry and rather chalky. Tastes bigger than 2.8%, but not much.

Bitburger is starting to be almost the favourite german pils for me, so I tried the low alc version. There is a bit of the same bite left, but just a little. It’s amazing how much a beer looses when you take a couple of % out. Not bad tho, just a little watery and a fraction of the nice hoppy afterburn of real Bitburger.

Bottle. Grain malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Light grainy malt flavor but it at least has a good beer flavor. One of the best low alcohol beers in Germany.

Lubiere (11373) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
New in Quebec supermarkets. Light golden lager with a thin creamy white head. Grassy malt aroma. In mouth, rather chalky malt residues, a bit bready, not all that bad, and close to the normal Bit. Medium bodied. Overall, a nice low carb. Bought at Rapido, Aylmer, 5.99 a 6 pack.

A avg. of 2.6 is surprising to me. i mean its a bmc upgraded. Like taking a 95 cavalier and adding a spoiler and loud exhaust to make it seem better, but really its still just a cavalier. Pours out a light straw, dark yellow on the verge of being golden, with vey small head. Nose is of cheap beer, a cheap beer ready to skunk, slight hop, grass, even slighter malt, and that always annoying skunk. flavor seemed to steer away from the skunk, and into plain land. Grass, barely hop, so-slight malt, and water.

Bottle: I read the other reviews and I must disagree with those who rate this as a decent Light. It’s very flat, watery, plain, with a metallic and chemical nose. Just as terrible as most other lights.

Aroma is skunky, grassy. Pale yellow, a little finger of white foam. Grassy taste, with a hint of hops. Very good given it’s lightness.
