3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle, darker than normal yellow, white head, typical of macro-lagers.
Haven’t had one of these since the early 1908’s, when Miller owned them. Didn’t know what to expect.
Aroma: Light citrus, and, yes, hops!
Taste: Light, detectable malt, and a hoppy finsh. Not a head bursting hop hit, but, yes, you can taste them in there. Finishes nice, clean, and refreshing.
This is a really decent session beer. I enjoyed this a bunch!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Systembolaget. Odd smell to this one, like a mix between childs clay and fresh mushrooms. A bit earthy and weirdly funky. Sweet taste with very little alcohol. Artificial taste with some metall and that weird mushroom and clay aroma. Smooth mouthfeel but that is all this beer has going for. I can’t drink this.

50cl bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - golden with some head, some of which is retained for the duration.
Nose - pale malt, honey and a nice lemon note. Something metallic too in the hops.
Taste - honeyed cornflakes with the crisp citrus finish.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a fairly substantial texture and a really refreshing finish.
Overall - how lager should be!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much to brag about here. Some malt sweetness and corn evident in the taste and aroma, with some sulfurous notes in the aroma as well. Crystal clear, pale, gold colour. An after taste that is sweet and forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Löwenbräu is brewed under the famous Bavarian Purity Laws. This should mean that this beer is full of natural flavours, crisp and clear and fully balanced with its taste, a quality assured product from Germany. A place where a well crafted beer is expected and anything less is simply not tolerated by the locals.
The appearance was of a gorgeous golden yellow colour that had a very good head and great lacing. Looked so good I couldn’t wait to begin drinking the beauty!
Found a faint aroma, smelt mostly of what a normal smelling lager should be like, malty and refreshing.
Was a lovely tasting drink that had no strong flavours or bitter aftertaste to it, just an awfully good session drink. A clean, crisp, smooth and well balanced beer, Löwenbräu was really easy to enjoy. A good pure Deutsche lager. Refreshing.
