The world knows no finer! Little Herman the German grew up watching his Opa and Omi brew beer in their single story stone-cottage located in Hamburg, Germany. What started as a hobby soon turned into a local phenomenon after neighbors and friends tasted their charming concoction. As demand increased, a family promise was made to never let money or admiration get in the way of the rich beer taste. Hermans Opa and Omi got older, as people do, and could no longer keep up with the demand for their easy drinking lager. Eventually Herman the German took over the family business and kept his Opa and Omis life-long promise by sharing his familys original recipe with the world at an affordable price

Tin. Poured Pale yellow with thin fast dissipating white head. No lacing. Sour weak aroma, Flat malt flavour, no hop. Weak cardboardy finish. Not a premium lager by any means. Cheap, but not good cheap.

Better than most domestics. I appreciate that they have still kept this beer going from the Old Cumberland brewery days.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 15, 2009
16oz can. Pale yellow, not much of a head. Sweet grain aroma and flavor, not much going on at all, typical large lager. Better than the BMC

12oz Can 99 Bottles Federal Way, WA A lager for sure had some decent malt flavor with a dry finish this was a good beer for after working on the car. Glad I got to try it. Clear as a bell light flavored this was a Pale lager for sure.

dry sweet and corny...chalky refreshing and tart...sudsy soapy and satisfying thats how i prefer to remember old german. with the burp of royalty! too bad you couldnt get the taste from the can it had to roll around in your gut for awhile so the flavor could be released. hey what about that bud girl on tv? the perfect pour ? give me a break! she knows as much about beer as i know about darning stockings.

As my friend said, this Old German is part of a clever scheme. It has such a tinny aftertaste that you want to take another sip immediately to wash the aftertaste out of your mouth. This can go on for quite a while.

Old German was another one of the cheap beers I used to drink back in the day. It cost $10 for a case of 16 oz bottles and didnt taste bad like the Millwaukee duo(Old and Beast) did. I bought a case recently just for old times sake and I found it kind of flavorless.

Reminds me of the 3.2% beer us G.I.s had at the enlisted mans club at Fort Ord in the 1960s. It was safe, easy to drink, and cheap. I recently tried the standard Iron City Beer and it was actually not bad. This tastes like the light version or water-added type brew. Has a hint of bitter hops that adds some astringency to the finish. Nothing bad about this beer just way too mild for a craft beer or even a BMC drinker. Might be a good beer for someone who dislikes beer with taste! Good belches though.
