Two row spring barley from the south of England, a special strain of yeast, ice-age glacier water from the "Rotenburger Rinne," plus hops from the famous "Hallertau Hop Gardens" in southern Germany are the ingredients that give St. Pauli Girl Lager its unsurpassed quality and taste and keeps you coming back for more.

Bottle. Sweet-sour, slightly musty aroma. Light golden yellow with small head. Slightly sweet barley malt with a mild hops finish. I can see why I thought this was the world’s greatest beer back in my BMC days. Oh well, New Year’s Eve is meant to be spent with old friends even if they don’t mean as much to you as they use to.

Pale yellow in color, with aroma of slight malt and corn. Tastes rather bland, but a slight notch above BMC stuff. I can’t believe that this used to be the "beer snob" favorite at many Penn State parties.

Aroma is strongly grassy with a bit of cannibis and eau d’skunk. Pours with a frothy white head that turns into a white ring around the glass. Some lacing. Taste is dry and grassy. Mouthfeel is dry and fizzy. Not sure what I was expecting, but I am a bit dissapointed at how common and macro this beer tastes.

mcberko (7808) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours yellow with a white head. Run-of-the-mill lager here, dominated by rice. Better than the North American macro-lagers...

DrSilverworm (7685) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear yellow color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Minimal white head. Good crisp and smooth not-overdone carbonation, drier finish. Very easy to drink, refreshing lager. Good bread aroma, light bit of hayish barnyardy hops. Inoffensive taste, just a very light bitterness, good sweet taste. Solid pils. Great to enjoy with mac and cheese.

deyholla (7315) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear gold with a white head that was bubbly and dissipated quickly. Aroma had notes of grain, bread and hay with a bit of grassy hops. Flavor was similar, mainly grains with just a bit of grassy hops.

A classic euro-lager-- pale yellow, big foamy head, green skunky hop edge and a dry finish. Many find them boring, but I like ’em!

24oz green bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky cap of white head.. not much color to it, but it was right on for the style. The aroma was skunky upfront, but the skunk went away when the beer was allowed to breathe for a minute.. soft bread and fruity malts came through, with honey and dusty earth accents.. pleasant enough. The flavor found more honey and lesser bready sweetness at the core.. lighter-skinned fruits gave a little kick on the edges.. a tad tacky and tangy on the back-end. Light-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. very much on the dry side.. OK flow, but it got caught up at the end.. this exceeded expectations.

So transparent I can hardly see it. The hop aroma is almost overpowering since it has almost no hardly malt backbone to support it. Very light in body and flavor and subsequently, not much character. For an imported German beer, it’s pretty disappointing.
