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.

ok german beer. Nothing too special. Taste is almost like beck's with less skunk . Not a whole lot of flavor but not dissappointing.

Very light yellow, looks like many american standard beers. Smells quite strong, like lemons, but still has that very common lager smell like nothing in particular. Taste is mild and bland, with nothing interesting or distinguishable. Near the end, this lager becomes irritating in the mouth, and overly sour.

Reasonable color and alright head start this one...nothing special so far. Aroma is a little hoppy, but not much going on here, either. Flavor is fairly crisp and clean, but lacks depth. An alright beer at best.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Golden colour, good head, not too lasting. Hoppy aroma. Light and fresh flavour, but watery with not so much taste. Quite hoppy aftertaste. Refreshing, but nothing special.
