Used to be one of the Top 5 Beers in the World (back in the 1970's) If kept at 40 degrees from factory to retailer it's a terrific beer worthy of being a World Class contender as was Munich Lowenbrau. Has disappeared (at least in the Northeast)
since the early 1990's.........

Clear straw pour under a fizzy white head that was gone in a flash. Mostly skunky aroma with a hint of bread. Typical light malty and slightly bitter (bad bitter) skunky flavor. Crisp finish. Despite that, if the beer is cold enough and you drink it quickly, it’s palatable. It’s better than Lowenbrau Original but that’s saying practically nothing. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2003
Yellowish, a quickly disappearing head.
A touch of citurs in the aroma. A little watery and bitter in both flavor and
finish. (My beer waqs bought on a can in Sweden, I wonder if this really was the one I really had. This was a lightblue can with a golden stripe on top and one at the bottom...The name was Löwenbräu Original) AcctError6435 (119) - Prairieville, Louisiana, USA - JAN 29, 2003
Drank it because it was an import. Nothing fancy, got the label though. Not much to say really boto (2263) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 1, 2003
It wasn't the 'real' Lowenbrau from Germany, but it wasn't too bad either. Still, nothing really stood out about it either. A bit pricey.

I could not find one thing wrong with this beer. Oh well, I did pay over 9 bucks just for a six pack. It's sad that you can't get this in the states anymore. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
Waaaay back in the day, when Lowenbrau was contract brewed in the US by Miller, we would buy this thinking it was the "real" Lowenbrau. We never questioned why it was made in Switzerland, and not Germany. The funny thing was, even then, I thought it wasn't very good. Skunky green bottles, etc. etc. Frog King99 (51) - L.A., California, USA - JUN 24, 2001
