Overall this is a basic pale german lager to me. This was pretty good for this, but I’m not big on german lagers. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
500 mL can. Pale golden-yellow with a slight greenish tinge and a good sized white head that leaves some nice lacing. Light aroma, sweet and grassy, a little herbal. Thin body, very wet, with mild malt flavour and a moderately hopped finish. An average int’l lager. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 28, 2005
Bottled. Lightly malty, grainy, sweet aroma with distinctly herbal touches of hop here and there and some faint skunk. Fitting, pale golden color, quite clear, with some surprisingly good lacing. Flavor is moderately sweet and malty to start, some dough or crackery flavors midway and seeing some light bitterness at the finish, virtually no hop flavors to be noted, however, here. Light bodied, texture is fairly thin and watery with more than ample carbonation. This was the first time in my life I’ve ever had this beer. That’s why I bought it, actually...

Jaune blond pale, mousse blanche mi-abondante. Dégagement gazeux très actif au service. Nez de pain levuré, de grains et de houblon (Hallertauer), amenant une touche d’herbe et de persil. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne répondant à mes attentes pour le style. Flaveurs essentiellement de malt et de grains terminé par une touche de gazon. La finale est relativement sèche, toujours vers le grain et possiblement un brin oxydé ? Canette 500ml, LCBO, Automne 2004. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 (Bottle 50 cl) Original German version. Fully golden with a fairly decent head. Very malty with a nice, smooth sweetness. Soft with a rather subdued bitterness. Excellent lager indeed. 190100

(Can 50 cl) Swedish version brewed by Spendrup’s at 5,4% ABV. Fully golden, nice head. Full and sweetish Helles with nice aroma-hops and a pronounced bitterness. 5/2/5/3/10=2,5 101003
When someone brought up the name of this beer, all that entered my mind was those commericals as a kid. Nights were made for Lowenbrau. Grassy aroma. Gold color with a inch head that disipated to a thin cover over the top of beer. Good lacing left on glass. Flavor was little bitter as most commerialized beers. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2005
Green bottle poured golden yellow with a thick fizzy head and sticky lacing.
Aroma of corn and malt.
Flavor was sweet, biter with a corn like finish. henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - APR 10, 2005
The bottle poured a sparkling clear light yellow liquid with a small white heat. The head dissipated quickly leaving almost no head. The aroma is primarily of malt with hints of banana. The flavor was crisp and clean with lots of malt. The middle was quite smooth and the finish slightly bitter. Fukito (1059) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 10, 2005
Golden with a medium lasting head, this is a fairly sweet beer, both in aroma and taste. The beer is smooth to drink, tasting of sweet grainy malts, some crispness, and some (noble) hop bitterness. A just decent Pils wxman (1814) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2005
Malt and hops barely noticable in a clean almost odorless nose. Pale yellow appearance with very little head retention or lacing. Taste is of sweet malt with some Saaz hops. This sample was pretty good, and I’m glad they’re making this in Munchen again instead of Canada or at Miller in Texas. Nevertheless, in Germany this is the equivalent of Budweiser.
