I was very weary of this, but I actually enjoyed it. Goes down really smooth. Very meduim-bodied, malty and creamy at the finish, I could drink this again.

Much better cold; the malt flavor is more appearant and some sour notes are hidden. Slightly-carmelly malt nose. A hint of roasted barley. Negligible head. Active carbonation. Reddish brown. Light to medium bodied. Front is a bit watery but the finish is malty and creamy.

Much better than the original. Better malt and overall impression. Slight toastiness.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 I LOVE THIS... I was shocked at how good this stuff was considering most of the ratings were low to average. Sweet, roasted, tasty malts. Very good! Serve on the colder end of cool, but not ice cold.

Nice darker brown color. Medium head, with little lace. Decent malt flavors, with a little too much sweetness. Not as good as I remember, but then those were the college years.

It basically a regular lowenbrau made dark. Nothing special here.

Not a rush of flavor but still deserves a lil credit.

Dark brown color, medium head. Nice malted, slightly roasted malts, some malt sweetness. Good hop balance. Nice flavor, perhaps a little mild? . Mouthfeel is full. The “original Munich formula”. A change from the Lowenbrau of a few years ago. Very nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter.
