Fist off, I've played a lot of shows around the Cleveland, Ohio area. I get drink tickets and like to try new beers each time. I came across Lobster at my local Rieders here in concord Ohio. It was very cheap for $1.99 us, 9.5%. I have been hooked since only need a couple of these to last all night long.

Yes, I've heard the taste is strong or miserable, tastes like toilet water, bottle drained,for others online. I have to beg the differ. I tell people about lobster lovers all the time, give it away to friends, ect,.

It recently has risen in price to $2.49. (1pt .09oz) I'm hooked and will gladly pay it.

If this is considered an "ok" as far as taste to price for European standards, I'd like to try a better!

Smells boozy and musty. Tastes the same, with hints of bread and banana, typical for the yeasts used in the Baltic states. I started drinking it too cold, but the second half of the bomber was poured into a room temperature glass and was quite a bit better. Thick full mouthfeel, feels like a triple. I wasn't sure what to expect from a beer with a huge lobster on the label, but my expectations were not high. Overall a decent beer but not one I'd choose again.

Lobster Lovers Beer has a thick, foamy, yellowish-white head, lots of thick lacing, an enormous amount of bubbles, and a hazy, orange-gold appearance. The aroma is very strong and bracing- one gets super-sweet, alcohilic barley malt and candi sugar. Taste is of sickly-sweet barley malt, melted hard candy, alcohol, barley malt, and bread. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Lobster Lovers Beer finishes sweet, harsh, and minimally drinkable. But, even with all the harshness and the jarring experience, it is a good one, and I score it excellent.

bottle into tulip

appearance: clear golden yellow, 1 finger white head

smell: butter, bready, booze, some notes of wet dog

taste: Alcohol, butter, maybe it's subconscious but this really tastes like lobster. Very warm and the alcohol lingers well into the aftertaste. NOt very refreshing, rather disgusting.

mouthfeel: not much carbonation, thin bodied

overall: Not something I would drink again, just really boozy version of a euro style lager, not very good. But for the ABV and price, it's not a bad option in that regard. With that said, this was my first drain pour.
