0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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??

Bottle. Lemp St. Louis Lager Beer on the label, assuming this is the same. Not sure why everyone is criticizing this one. I thought from pour to finish, that this was a solid lager beer. Far superior to the BMC’s of the world, and quite satisfying having a few through the night.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Well this is simply wretched. Pours dark yellow with a good sized white head. This is a diacetyl bomb, some creamy like pale malt that is lightly sweet, but this is mostly bad butter / butterscotch. Medium / light body with some carbonation. The taste is a bad citric off flavor. The finish is bitter, but not a hop bitterness. This was a drain pour - simply terrible. Avoid.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 Nice medium dark in color and is much darker than most pale lagers. Easy drinking and smooth describe it. There is not a lot going on here which is typical of the style. Some decent caramel flavor.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a twist cap 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date.
Poured a slightly chill hazy dull lager golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing.
Aromas of grains and dry biscuits, floral and lightly spicy hops, pretty faint and clean overall.
Medium carbonation and a crisp, smooth lightish medium bodied mouthfeel.
Bland, but pleasant tasting, grains and sweet caramel malts, floral hops with a touch of spice, soft in their bitterness, and a dryish caramel malty finish, decent, not great, all-malt lager drinkability.
Not bad, but an average all-malt lager, I’m not sure if it is worth paying the higher price than just buying your basic BMC six, which are usually on sale.

Not much too this beer at all. Light and thin, with absolutely no aroma, exept perhaps a bit of sourness. Tastes like a bit of burnt paper and pencil shavings. Just not good at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(bottle) pale gold with very little head which fades rapidly. Faint malt aroma. A bit thin. Seems like I taste corn, although it’s only supposed to have barley.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle. This classic american pils pours gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma is quite clean with only malt and subtle spices. Flavor is well-balanced and malty with a good noble hop presence. Medium-light body and well-carbonated. Great example of the style and an easy drinking beer from one of my least favorite styles.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden body with a thin white head. Smells of floral hops, saaz maybe??? And adjuncty hints of something bmc like. Crisp papery flavor a hint of caramel and then it just dries out my tongue with a weird ending. Leathery quality to this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of heemer77, thanks for the beer Eric. a very unassuming, non-offensive lager. pale golden on the pour with a fast fading white head, settles down to a lasting layer of lace. aroma and flavor that is slightly sweet with some hints of a pumpkin or sweet potato spice.
