Lemp St. Louis Lager is a true German style lager, and conforms to Rheinheitsgebot. Brewed in an organic brewery with a smooth, lightly hopped taste that will please the most discriminating palate. Lemp was the first lager style beer in America. Come taste why first is always best.

Pours a suprisingly coppery gold with a foamy head resting on top. Aroma is similar to Busch, lots of sweet corn. Flavor is very macro-like, adjuncts and a bit of skunk. Very fizzy to the point it burned my nose on one drink, like a burp that exits the nostrils. The legend obviously doesn’t live on. I think maybe I’ll stay at Lemp Mansion sometime soon just to complain to the ghosts that the beer bearing their names is not good at all.

I am in the minority here, but I liked it. A nice amber lager, with good taste and very smooth, no bad side backbite. Great looking bottle as well.

Pours a nice golden color with a big white foamy head. No real aroma here. Flavor is very sweet. You get some malts in there but the sweetness overpowers. Not bad for a lager but at the same time not all that good. Way overpriced at $8 a six. I bought it on sale for $5.99 and that is even to much.

Fairly rich golden/amber color with a minimal head and lacing. Mild malt aroma with a faint toasty note. Light bodied, caramel malty with some huskiness in the finish. Cool looking retro packaging, reasonably drinkable but absurdly overpriced. Hopefully after this blows over the Lemps will finally be allowed to rest in peace.

Wow is this stuff just terrible. It has that typical lager nose and taste, but kind of sweet behind the funk. It was so bad I couldnt finish more than half of the bottle. I would avoid this. Interesting note, on the bottle it claims that it is americas oldest lager and that it is brewed in saint louis mo. But here it says that it is brewed in Pennsylvania. Go figure.

The history of Lemp is far more interesting than the beer. This was nothing more than a weak, watery lager in the style of a macrobrewery. Perhaps Lemp made better beer in the old days in St Louis but this was awful. Take time to read the history of Lemp, however. Interesting stuff. A slogan was "Walk with a Lemp."

They should have left this beer for dead. clear medium golden, head is actually nice white and foamy. aroma is virtually non-existent. flavor is pretty sweet, cereal taste, no hop character in either the nose or the flavor. hey, at least it's fresh tasting, without the cardboard crappiness.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Slight aroma, some faint sugary sweetness, corn and crackery malt. Light golden color, plenty of bubbles and an adequate head, even some lacing. Flavor is mildly malty, somewhat vegetative, with a dry, rather abrupt finish. Smooth mouthfeel, of course light in body and lacking almost entirely in bitterness. Certainly not going to win any points with beer connoisseurs, but is perhaps a bit more characteristic than some others of its ilk.
