2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
In the bottle. Thanks to Darrell M. for the birthday beer. Pours a surprising light amber with an initial significant head that regresses, but does not die. leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is slightly floral and malty. Pleasant smelling beer. medium carbonation. Body is on the weaker side as it is a little watery for its appearance. Hop finish is present, but it just does not announce itself with authority. Strange little contract brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle-this is much better than the rating gives it. A STL beer? its &*$#@!* brewed in PA for christ sake! pours light golden yellow with a small sudsy white head and some good lacing. grainy, lightly spicy hop aroma and a mint quality as well. some nice spicy flavors and a good lager yeast strain are abundent in the flavors. pretty easy lager and a decent one at that.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Tasted at August KC Bier Meisters meeting. Labled as "Lemp St. Loius." Golden color. Noble hops aroma. Flavor is light malt and noble hops. I didn’t get the adjuncts flavor that some seem to pick up. Enjoyable lager.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprisingly, this is a medium amber with a good solid head and an active tilt. Although it delivers the expected corn starchiness, it’s also has much richer caramel malt basis than I expected, with an apple tinge. Better than I could have hoped for.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark golden color with a soft airy white candle looking head. Aromas of grape peels with perhaps a touch of herbal hops. Sweet start in the flavors with corn grits and raisins. A hint of malt in the finish, but the body still shudders from the first taste. Light with quite a bit of spritz of the palate. I should have passed on this.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden color, thick white head. Smells like corn. Watery, with a taste very similar to that of your average BMC product. I was given this beer, I hope the person that bought it didn’t pay much for it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a brilliant amber with a thin off-white head with good lacing. Nose is suprisingly good floral notes mixed with Cheerios. The taste is initially very sweet, trending toward crystalline hops and mild skunkiness, with an unpleasant astringent aftertaste. Not great but also not the worst pale lager I’ve had.

Suprised to see this beer rated so low, it looks and smells good. Ok, so it doesn’t taste that good, but better then Bud.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a suprisingly coppery gold with a foamy head resting on top. Aroma is similar to Busch, lots of sweet corn. Flavor is very macro-like, adjuncts and a bit of skunk. Very fizzy to the point it burned my nose on one drink, like a burp that exits the nostrils. The legend obviously doesn’t live on. I think maybe I’ll stay at Lemp Mansion sometime soon just to complain to the ghosts that the beer bearing their names is not good at all.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I am in the minority here, but I liked it. A nice amber lager, with good taste and very smooth, no bad side backbite. Great looking bottle as well.
