UPDATED: AUG 13, 2008 This is my favorite beer as of right now. The smell was like that of a skunk (which can only mean a good strong taste) and the taste was wonderful and kind of bitter. For the price, this is the best beer there is. No additional flavors, just the barley malt, hops, and water. Goes well with Honey Roasted peanuts, makes the flavor sweet. Snyders Hard Sourdough pretzels really bring out the bitter side of this beer (which I love). Great beer is the Lion’s brew!!! adwright2002 (25) - loganville, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2008

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2011 This beer manages to stay light with very subtle undertones which are just incredible. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Lowenbrau Original pours to a beautiful, bright, pale golden color with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful with lots of good, crisp, pale and pilsner malt aroma. The palate on this beer is crisp and clean with lots of good pale and pilsner malt on a very smooth and polished body. Lowenbrau Orignial finishes with more crisp malt character up front, and then is balanced to perfection with just the right amount of grassy/herbal hop bitterness.
A flawless example of helles, balance of malt and hop character truly defines this beer. One might think its straight forward character makes it a simple beer, but any brewer of beer lover will tell you, it is no easy task to brew a flawless lager. There is no where for the aromas and flavors "to hide" so to speak. The aromas and flavors can not be masked in a beer like this, so if there is a flaw, you will be able to smell and taste it. Lowenbrau Original is a fantastic example of the science and art of brewing, and it is a wonderful experience to try this one at the Lowenbraukeller, though you can also enjoy it here in the US, on draught and in bottles.

Great Lager. I was very impressed, went down smooth, no bad aftertaste and overall nice beer, not bad for a long neck. Can't wait to down a draught. Good balance between taste and ABV! ;) TransylBeeria (16) - USA - JUL 18, 2003
Very, VERY! drinkable, getting lost on them is too easy, smooth with a hint of bitters and nice easy finish, super beer at a super price (in Germany) Im not sure how the bottled exports measure up (tap rules) newkai (7) - Syracuse, New York, USA - APR 5, 2004 does not count
Probably one of my favorite mass-produced beers. It's Munich-style, and it tastes like a Munich-style should. I haven't had it in the US yet, it might taste different here. I know it did when it was bottled by Miller. damzz (501) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Import of choice, have chased it down in Puerto Rico when the original could only be found there in the USA; sad it took decades to import it again to the mainland, its small bubles remind me of a fine chanpagne.
