   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 7/20
Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2002
Hoppy aroma upon opening, with some other sourish aroma that I can’t put my finger on. giving way to a moderate, bubbly head upon pouring. Though not especially tall, the head had a nice wispy, cloudlike shape. Upon drinking, there was a sour taste with the hops coming through at times. Very sweet, but a bid odd as well. Now I’ve got it--the aroma seems to be similar to urine, though I can’t say I know if the sour taste is of the urine variety as well. I’m not likely to test _that_ one out! There are some things I like about this beer, but the sweetness and the oddness in the smell and taste are too much to overcome.

it might just be my fetish for German lgers, but this beer is up there with the best lagers the world has to offer. Despite its mass-marketing, lowenbrau original has not comprimised on a crisp bitterness, tight hoppyness throughout, and simply a beautiful colour and head in the glass

Ahhhh.... gemutlichkeit! A nice semi-sweet beer that finishes pretty clean on the palate. Aftertaste is sweet and smooth. This beer has obviously been altered a bit for the american market, but still very german in it’s makeup. A non-expensive way of drinking a decent, well made import. You can spend a lot more and taste a lot worse! Good stuff!

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2002
It’s got that green-bottle skunk aroma, so I know it’s been sitting on the shelf here in Jersey City for too long! A fairly strong lager with some malt and bitterness.

Okay, it probably didn’t help that the sixer my friend bought of this said ’Win a trip to Oktoberfest 2001’ (!!!)on the side. It was pretty bitter, and had a bad aftertaste. Nice look to it though.

Soft sweet smell. Pale yellow, fluffy head. Mildly sweet taste. Lacks body. Average.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2004 (rerate is to replace a rating based on long-ago memory) Sparkling straw body topped by big white head. Aroma is initially skunky, but replaced by light sweet, cereal. Taste is sweet, bread, cookie dough, light floral, grassy. Light body.

Not bad. Not a lot of flavour for a lager of this strength. Slightly dissapointing.
