COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Herman’s 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 Omi’s life-long promise by sharing his family’s original recipe with the world at an affordable price

This canned brew poured a small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and straw yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malty lagerish . Its mouth feel is initially tingly crisp bubbly with a lingering slightly tingly mild palate and a slightly acidic aftertaste. Its flavor contained thin malt flavor with a very slight hop note notes. Not one I would buy again.

Bought a case of 12oz cans, mainly as a joke. Got what I paid for. Generic mass-produced American beer. Actually tasted better from the can than it did when I poured one into a mug. Another interesting can to add to my collection.

Can. Small white head that mostly diminished, sparse lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonated, transparnet, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty, hoppy and sweet. Malty, sweet flavor. Smooth palate. Light-medium body.

How to describe how bad this beer is? It is kind of like bottling up all the spilled beer at a frat party.

How do you make the word terrible stretch to 75 chracters? Not even acceptable for frat parties! This must be really really old, musty, moldy German.

Completely awful. No other way to describe it. A cheap college beer, and not even good enough for that.

Better than I was expecting. For the price and for the taste, a must have for the college student. beats BEAST.

pjcoupe (105) - Perryton, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Not much aroma nice golden color,head quickly disappears, absolutely no lace, very drinkable somewhat citris tasting on some days tinny on others good tang on first bite with a cooling that lingers on the throat and palate kind of pleasant aftertaste that reminds you of a Heiny-kin or a Pilsner Urquell without the heavy almost skunky hoppiness of those two brews.
