2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear golden with a big, white head that dissipates into a cap. Sweet and grainy aroma. Light sweetness on the tongue, followed by big skunkiness. Light and easy to suck down, one of my dad’s favorites.
12 Oz bottle from a 12 pack, poured into a Lowenbrau (Munich) stemmed bowl shaped glass on 18th Dec 2017. A beer I have had many times before RateBeer was conceived . It is still a decent enough golden Pilsner , a little sweet and grainy maybe but has been left behind by the new wave of German Pilsner makers. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 14, 2017
My dad drank this beer all the time when I was growing up. Not the most memorable beer. Dry and stale. A little sweet. Tried for the first time in 2007. o_Merlin_o (235) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Skunky smell. Pours a straw yellow color with zero head. Crummy taste, with el cheapo flavoring. Tastes like a watered down Heineken. DoctorHU (607) - UKRAINE - NOV 9, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours yellow with a small white head. Aroma in the direction of malt with notes of sugar candies and corn, with light herbaceous tones and sulphurous shades. The taste is unidirectional sour, confident grain maltiness, saturated herbaceous tones, which, in a sufficiently strong bitterness, are intertwined with hops. In the aftertaste, bitterness continues to stretch in the foreground, sweetness moves back and not bad shades it. malvrich (364) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Green bottle stamped 1/2018 so assumed ~3.5 months old > pilsner glass
A: Small head falling fast to film atop a clear, bubbly pale gold body.
S: Only lightly skunked allowing some bread or dough to come through along with an herbal or vegetal note. Could be a lot worse.
T: A sour note that suggests corn and some hops. A dry note helps a bit with the sweet aftertaste. Lacking overall.
M: Light body and softer carbonation than apparent. Muddled sweet/sour finish.
O: An old favorite from the '80s, this falls flat in comparison to any modern craft pilsner but not terrible if it's ice cold; and it's still better than Bud.

I was not sure about trying this one, but it is good!! Nice flavor with just a touch of hops to offset the malt. Very nice. Good taste.
The label, with the lady and her low cut top, is an issue. Not sure we need that label....... Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Best by February 2018.
Pours a clear straw gold, an inch of foam, respectable lacing.
Smells light struck, of grain, hints of hops.
Grainy, light sweetness, some grassy bitterness. Non descript bitterness.
Light bodied, plenty of carbonation.
Drinkable but just. unclemike (3195) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2017
A thoroughly bland, tasteless, and boring beer. The only time it has flavor is when its green bottle allows it to get skunked easily. Regardless of its description, this has nothing even vaguely resembling a ’hoppy aroma’. miloyoungman68 (1) - - JUL 7, 2017 does not count
I have an extremely good nose and the St.Pauli Girl I drink does not smell fishy! This actually smells like real beer. The main thing I notice is that this beer seems to be lacking in the flouride that is found in many American beers, which is a great plus. I also think it might be lacking in the BPH, (at least I hope) that is found many American beers. Gee, bottled in a tinted glass bottle, (NO aluminum can), fine taste, all of the above make for a very good tasting quality beer, which is what beer should taste like. Just might not end up brain dead! Rex_Remes (284) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JUN 13, 2017
