Not what I expected. Alcohol is well hidden. None of the nice malted flavors that I would normally like for the style.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Weird all around. Very pale and sweet, but the malt flavors were enjoyable. Not a marzen.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2004
(draught) Pale gold; collapsing snow-white head, reasonnably dense. Very grainy and slightly soapy nose. Malt is intense after some time. Clean, rather sweet, crisp taste. In America one would suspect maize, probably not in this. Mouthfeel is its Achilles’ heel: slick and slightly cloying with metallic tang. The landlord, offering me this beer in Krefeld, justly stated this beer is different every year. Well, this year is not going to be a vintage...

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2004
12 oz bottle. Big barley beer, with a hint of grasses - kind of like a well made homebrew or a sweet lager - maybe a souped up Schultheiss/Kindl? The label says 6.1% - I don’t taste it, but I do feel it.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Something like an "Imperial Helles", which is a bad idea, and so is this beer. The alcohol overwhelms some emerging malt sweetness, leaving the whole thing rather ungood. Needs balance and flavor.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2004
Pale yellow color with little white head. Sweet and malty aroma, maybe hint of alcohol in there too. Medium bodied palate, may be due from strong alcohol, which has strong flavor coming up in the end. Dull flavored brew, only slightly malty and alcoholic.I was expecting very much more out of this.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2004
Can (BB 05/2004)
Pale yellow, medium white foamy head, lace. Malty nose with alcohol and metal notes. Sweet, harsh, medium-bodied. In aftertaste alcohol comes through well. Reminds me about some strong Baltic lagers.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2004
Nothing very interesting going on here. Bright pale gold colour. Bready malt aroma with cardboard undertones. The flavour is sweet, but, at the same time, has a sharp bitterness. The balance is not great. Rather acidic finish, with a pronounced alcohol afterburn. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 31 August 2004.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale golden coloured with a small but long lasting head, some lacing. Slight fruity aroma, light hoppy flavour. Refreshing and light, with nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet and hoppy aftertaste. Good one, probably my favourite of the Lowenbrau’s I’ve tried so far.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
Bottle. BBE 08/04. Pale yellow with soapy head. First taste is impressive - crisp and flavoursome, but a soapy taste settles in during the finish and refuses to budge. Hop extract has been added to assist the bitterness, but it simply drags this down to the land of cheap, nasty lager.
