Pale gold with no head to speak of. Aromas are sweet grain with sweetcorn tin juice and some spice. Flavours are said sweetcorn tin juice again with sweet grain and citrus notes. Fairly dry on the finish. As expected. Geiserich (4699) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 13, 2005

Aroma is flowerly hoppy. Golden color, quickly diminishing head. Spicy taste, malty, aromatic hoppy. Dry astringent medium bitter aftertaste. Quite fine for a canned beer.
Bottle. Primarily hops aroma with mild malt - initially a bit skunky. Light yellow color with small. collapsing head. Flowery hops flavor up front with sweet corn and slight orange flavor finish - a bit strange but not entirely unpleasant. Definitely better than the Miller version that I can only vaguely remember but was not very good. VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Clear yellow body with a short white head. Light hay-like aroma. Has a mild herbal flavor with a faint hoppy aftertaste. bierkoning (13893) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2004
Cologne and a bit of urine in the aroma. Malty cologne flavor with a bit of citrus. Not good.

I can remember when this was being brewed in the USA by Miller, but I’m glad to see it’s back overseas, where it began. Anyway, it poured out a golden yellow color, with a slight haziness to it. Had a decent enough head on it, but didn’t last too long. Slightly bitter taste to it, with a metallic finish to it as well. It did taste of malts, and a slight fresh hay quality to it also. Had bitterness aplenty. Finished kind of thin, however. A better pilsener than most on the market. Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - JUN 16, 2004
Bottle. Straw yellow, large white head, slowly to disappears.
Fresh aroma, hoppy, weak persistence. Hay aroma on an honey-malty backbone.
Weak honey sweetness followed by a moderate herbal bitterness. Hoppy-herbal aftertaste, nearly balsamic, of bitter herbs, gentian.
Dry palate, oily to watery texture, medium body. It is best on tap. IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2004
I had the Japanese brewed version of this, brewed by Asahi brewery. Pale golden and clear, just as one would expect. A medium white head, a touch of lacing. A very mild aroma, some sweetness with faint spicy hop tones. A very mild flavor, not too sweet as some of the "corn flake juice" Japanese macros can be. A step above average Japanese & US macros, but just a small step. I imagine this would be ggod in warmer weather or while eating Bratwurst! ogivlado (8446) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 15, 2003
Canned(500ml). -this isn't such a good beer as other Lowenbraus, below average CGS, malty and hoppy, and yes very boring Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2003
This is a classic German. Both malty and hoppy. Very clean and a bit boring. A nice refreshig if it is served at the right temperature.
