"Tonight is kinda special." In the late 70’s - early 80’s, Lowenbrau was a big thing. My Dad & his buddies used to drink it all the time. I got a pitcher of it at a pizza parlor a few months ago, just to see why my Dad drank it. I am still wondering. Its OK, I guess. Thank God we have so many micro-brews to chose from now!

pours yellow. head is thin and lacy but well retained. on the better side of generic lagers. a bit hoppier than most.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2002
PGC under a large foaming long lasting fluffy white head. Faint fair bitter hops and hint of fruit and eggshell aroma. Medium thin body with short sharp bitter fizzy yellow beer start. Weaker blander middle before turning metallic and watery at the finish and dying with a soft malt sweet aftertaste. yawn!

Just didn’t like it. Maybe I got a bad bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Re-rate: I must totally re-do my rating for this beer. The Munich version is elegent Helles with full, sweet malt and excellent drying finish. Hop-perfumed aroma. The body is a brickhouse--so important in a good Helles. Excellent.

Pale gold, smallish white head. Creamy head , but smallish top.
Pale sweet , light malty tones. Some what dry alcohol at background that ruins gentle palate. Salty sweet lager . I remember to be better than this one.

PhillyBeer2112 (2604) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
Medium skunky aroma plus spicy hops. Bright yellow gold with small foamy head. Light, clean flavor, hint of skunk. Mildly bitter skunky aftertaste. Nice fully flavored lager with creaminess, but light on body.

Decent euro-macrobrew. Smooth taste, a little on the weak side. Decent mouthfeel, with nice tight carbonation. Again, nothing outstanding, but you could do a lot worse.

Light golden appearance. I’ll be honest, I have a cold, so I couldn’t smell a thing. Slightly fruity body, tinny, finishes slightly hoppy.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Re-rate with the German version (previous was the Canadian-brewed version)...not much difference. A bit too sweet, not much aromatic character.
