Looks like a typical lager from bavaria, exept the short foam. It smells like a combiation of cauliflower and vanilla. Taste very commersial of malt and DMS. And the bitterness is very late in the taste.

Bottle. A light golden color with a laced white head. Fairly smooth and clean with a light malt body.

Great Lager. I was very impressed, went down smooth, no bad aftertaste and overall nice beer, not bad for a long neck. Can't wait to down a draught. Good balance between taste and ABV! ;)

1/4 draught: Poured clear yellow with fine carbonation and huge white head. Great malty aroma with lovely euro hop smell too. Nicely balanced taste with a thin-medium body. Great presentation at the pub (Lowenbrau Keller in Sydney).

Not super, but alright. Average, mild lager taste, not a skunky as some others. Pretty smooth, yet not particularly impressive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is assertively hoppy, and a bit grassy, attractively so...Color is standard pale gold, but the pocked head was quite healthy and left clingy honeycombed lace--quite attractive...This has a mild hop profile; malts providing faint flavor support but rather more to the body...The finish is medium-dry with a light hop tang...Overall, this falls about in the middle of the pack for this style, but I got a kick drinking the German edition of this famous brand for the first time in about 25 years...

I preferred the premium pils. I thought I'd hit a winner with Lowenbrau, but peoples tastes differ - so too must the beers to cater for them.

A mild bodied slightly hoppy lager. Better than the Miller product that bears the same name.

solidly average. Not as good as Spaten, but not as crappy as Warsteiner. Malty aroma, thin golden color, typical lager characteristics with a bit more hops. It doesn't offend and it doesn't thrill, so all in all a decent attempt at lager.

clear golden colour. small head that vanishes rather quickly. The taste is okay but nothing special.
