Keg at the Feathers, Westminster (from old notes). Despite the Germanic styling and claimed connections with the famous brewery in Munich, this is nothing more than a bog standard UK brewed lager. Thin and fizzy, with little aroma or flavour. Virtually indistinguishable from the Fosters that one of my companions was drinking. I rather doubt that the draught version is 5.6% but there’s no indication of ABV on the font so its hard to be sure. Very bland stuff. I seem to recall Lowenbrau being a little better than other macro lager offerings but standards seem to have slipped.

Can. Golden with a massive white foam. Aromas are metal and corn with some sweet caramel. Flavours are sweet grain, butter and peppery hops. Bitter and metallic on the finish with harsh alcohol and chemical notes.

that was nice, fairly sweet tasting but a bit different than ordering a bud, which was the only other bottled lager at this place. Refreshing

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Gold straw with carbonated head. Dry lager with the one saving grace of a higher alcohol level, otherwise a low quality low flavoured thinness.

Hey, remember when Lowenbrau was a real beer, one you could get excited about? This is better than a Bud, of course, but is now just another big company's version of a mass-market lager. Not on a par with the best Japanese mass-market lagers, like a Kirin Ichiban. My restaurant knew enough to serve it really cold, odd for the UK, but as it warmed up I realzed that the best thing about it was the refreshing coolness it started with. Great golden color too.

Standard pilsner best served cool to refresh the palate. Lacks the real quality aspects of a good pilsner.

A half-decent pills, better than many of the other bottled lagers. Pretty strong for the style, virtually no aroma, little flavour, slightly sour and only slight carbonation. I doubt that I shall be trying this again.
