2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Available previously as 1,5 l plastic bottle, now in 2 l bottles only. Obviously misses "original" in the name as it is probably not brewed under Reinheitsgebot and definitely different recipe than original. It pours pale yellow body with big head. Grainy, lemony and weaker bread malty aroma. Herbal, lemony hop, slightly sourish corny and bread malty flavor, thinner in body with somewhat sweetish to sourish finish. Not bad for a cheap pale lager. Since i initially rated it, Lowenbrau remains my top choice when drinking, giving best ratio of quality over price, while it’s widely available.

Yellow body with moderate white head. Not strong aroma, hoppy. Flavor quite bitter, but it somehow fades soon, as the palate get used to it. Not so good finish, bit soapy. Better than average lager.
