Lemp St. Louis Lager is a true German style lager, and conforms to Rheinheitsgebot. Brewed in an organic brewery with a smooth, lightly hopped taste that will please the most discriminating palate. Lemp was the first lager style beer in America. Come taste why first is always best.

(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a small white head. Aroma of grain and sweet caramel. Taste includes more hop, but barely enough to counteract the grain. High carbonation level. Not really sure what to say about this one... for a pale lager it’s not too bad. I just wonder if it tasted like this 100 years ago.

Tasted 8/9/08. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden hue. White head. Grainy cereal aromas. Light to medium bodied with low effervescence but bitter. Off-dry finish. Grainy yet smooth. Caramel malts. Short burst of citrus hops in the finish with a lingering acidity. Easy!

12 oz. bottle served in my stein- poured transparent lightened caramel yellow color, medium carbonation, hearty one finger head with several frog eyes and actually had some lacing (!). Aroma of wet hay, young wheat, and corn that is too wet that just is about to get some black musk on it, ugh. Hits the mouth with a high-thin body, malt is indistinguishable, has some weight in the middle but not much, finish does have more than one hop per barrel which is refreshing. While this is cleanly below session class, I wonder if the original Lemp that was brewed in St. Louis almost 100 years ago had more and better flavor. Time to get cracking on that time machine... now to take the anti-derivative of the 4th dimension...

Bottle. Nose is sweet, malty and estery. Light fruit notes, grapes and apricot. Mostly clear, slight chill-haze, amber-colored with a thin but steady white head. Well-balanced and clean drinking. Soft grains and subtle fruit with a light hop bitterness in the finish. The beer’s fruity esters get to be a bit tart in the aftertaste. Overall this is a severely underrated pale lager with a strong depth of flavor and easy-drinking mouthfeel.

Mildly hoppy Pale lager. You can actually taste the hops in it, and it has a rather crisp taste to it for the style. Not a bad showing for what it is.

not as bad as the $9 for a case would suggest. dark with an almost sweet, honey-like finish. recommended for drinkers on a budget.

As I lifted the lid on the bottle I wasn’t too impressed by the scent that crept out of the mouth. Poured an incredibly amber color with a healthy head for a lager. Tastes pretty standard. A little sweet & sour as it goes down the hatch. As the commercial description says, "first is always best," well, false advertising. Seems like one of those beers that would have a cult following in Missouri (anyone from Missouri?) but doesn’t have much of a leg to stand on elsewhere. I don’t like knocking beers, but there really isn’t that much else to say.

New at my beerstore. Cool name, cool label. America’s first lager, I wonder how true that is? Slightly darker than pale yellow in appearance. Tea froth head. No real menacing attributes, rather friendly and drinkable. Aroma has some metallic hints. Acceptable pale lager for the most part. Probably should be under the premium lager style.

More tasty than the usual BMC products at least. Aroma was very distant and faint. Could pick up traces of metal and malt. Pour was a flat medium gold with no head. Taste was a little too sweet...almost all malt with hints of honey and metal. Blah

hazy copper appearance, little head. an unattractive beer. flavor really has no discernable malt/hop balance. fflavor is just sweet and convoluted. it tastes like malt liquor
