Thin body and modest head. Very light carmel taste with little hop bitterness. Was much better years ago.

Very smooth, refreshing dark lager. Has a nice taste. Could drink anytime. Great with Brats.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (dark bread, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a hint of clove. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

I wasn't expecting much and I didn't get it. Smells and looks kind of good. I'd take it over most mass-produced made in the USA swill, but not over most other German beers.

I just noticed what style this is listed as, "American Dark" and think that sums up this beer. It is malty and creamy, but it is watered down for the American palate. A grocery store beer.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 10, 2001
Well, its dark - ruby red - I’ll give it that. This is actually far superior to the regular Lowenbrau offering - much better flavor, aftertaste, everything. Nothing stands out in the aroma, save for some malts. Very mild aftertaste. Still somewhat bland, but if you have to choose between the two, go for this.

Panzuriel (1282) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Brown in color with a quickly disappearing head. Nice malt aroma. Somewhat weak and wimpy malt flavor that is disappointing. Finishes weakly.
