2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden color, white head. Sweet malt aroma, some grassy hops. Similar flavor profile. Lighter body, finishes crisp with a little lingering bitterness. Not bad for how available it is, but beware the green bottle.

Clear gold, OK head.
Aroma is malty, a fair bit of honey and some diacetyl.
Flavour is lightly malty, with a fair bit of hop flavour. A bit hoppy for a Helles but still OK.

Light, golden beer with a very mild flavour but a nice hoppy backend.
One of the better beers I have had lately, and it goes down very well when the thermometer sits on over 40C. Pretty good I found. Cheers folks

A crisp, clean, inoffensive lager. Surprisingly, my sample was unskunked. Crisp malt flavor with some grassy/hay-like notes. Somewhat sharp hop bite in the finish. A tad bit boring but easy to drink.

Pastuerised Bottle. Crisp aroma. Creamy up front, then salt kicks in. Fizzy mouthfeel. Not much else. Mostly dull.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
The closest thing I've ever seen to a German version of American Pilsner (if that's possible). Light body, very little malt taste, but a solid hop back end. The head is nice and full with small bubbles--well-structured. The beer is too hoppy and has a BandAid wang to it that i don't like.

Ok It has been years since I had a Lowenbrau from Germany , 13 to be exact, I dont count the Lowenbrau we got here in America for so many years brewed in Canada.
Nice lievlly carbonated, pure golden colour, clear and handsome nice sized foamy white head.
Smell is the average German lager smell..hops very faint like rainwater.
This is actually not a bad lager..clean and crisp..with a nice hoppy aftertatse.Not complex but well done..not too dry.
Average lager feel on the tongue ok but nothing special..
All in all a most drinkable lager beer..went down well with the Pork Chops I cooked for dinner.
Certainlly much better than when it was brewed in Canada.
