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.

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.

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.

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 didnít get the adjuncts flavor that some seem to pick up. Enjoyable lager.

Surprisingly, this is a medium amber with a good solid head and an active tilt. Although it delivers the expected corn starchiness, itís also has much richer caramel malt basis than I expected, with an apple tinge. Better than I could have hoped for.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2005
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.

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 didnít pay much for it.

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 Iíve had.

Suprised to see this beer rated so low, it looks and smells good. Ok, so it doesnít taste that good, but better then Bud.

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 doesnít live on. I think maybe Iíll stay at Lemp Mansion sometime soon just to complain to the ghosts that the beer bearing their names is not good at all.

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.
