COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Looks like a red beer, not a pale lager. Has a lot of head. Taste like an abbey ale with a lot ofdark sugars.

Very clear light amber. Slight sour maltiness and a bit of yeast in the smell. Taste is earthy malt, dry, sweaty yeast. Sweet, yet drying... Not a very clean or pleasant finish. Bad even by pale lager standards, I thought.

Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head that receded to a thin pool rather quickly. The aroma picked up sweet pale and perhaps caramel malts along with a touch of wheat and some honey. The flavor had pale malts and corn.. an ugly overriding darker sweetness made this not so good.. sharper citrus notes with more corn stick to the edges of the palate. Lighter-bodied with ugly, tacky notes in all the wrong places.. not very good.

12 oz. Bottle. Here’s something new: a "virtual" beer that’s not owned by Pabst or brewed by Miller. Pours a decent dark golden pils color under a fluffy head head. Somewhat oxidized hop smell. Taste does show some malts to it, grainy with a bot of honey. Hops are just there to keep the sweetness at bay. But beyond that, there’s nothing much holding this together. Needs something in the body to unite this as a beer instead of a collection of grains and aromas. Maybe the owners of the Lemp name can get a brew facility of their own and then decide if they’re really in the beer business. At least it’s available in the St. Louis area.

A dark golden yellow pour that is slightly clouded. Citrus, wheat and a hint of malt gives it a pleasant aroma. The Head quickly disappears. The taste of this beer is unbalanced. The first sip give way to a malt but the finish has a hint of citrus. There is no body to the beer but it is similar to this style of beer.

The pour was a slightly cloudy, dull-golden color that hoisted up a decent white head that was slightly foamy and created a bit of lacing. The aroma was of malt and some citrus that didn’t really mesh well together. The flavor was ever an ever so slight bit of malt that was quickly overpowered by unpleasant citrus and a weird grainy finish. Meh.

jgb9348 (4717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2007
Deep amber coloured body (not golden at all) with no head at all to speak of. Aroma of pale malt, lemons, wheat, caster sugar and even some hops! Light-bodied; Sharp flavour of malt up front fading to some cardboard and light citrus flavours as well. Aftertaste is a bit nicer with some sugars and malt most noticeable. Overall, not a horrible beer and one even maybe worth trying for the style. I agree that it is better than the BMC products around, but nothing more than just another lager. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Spirit Shop in Norman, Oklahoma on 24-April-2007.

Bottle, pours a bit darker than I expected, a slight light copper color, a light lemony hop presence, with a bit of cereal notes. Really not too bad for a pale lager.

Pours golden amber with lots of bubbles and carbonation. Skunky nose. Dissapating offwhite head. Light and thin on the pallate. Sour cardboard taste with some bitterness at the finish. Not very refreshing and not even sessionable. Natural light is more smooth. Absolute Drainpour. Also, I thought Yeungleng was the first American Lager??
