I first had this one with some friends quite a while ago, so I had to pick one up just to try so it could be fresh in my mind for a review.
This one pours a clear golden-yellow. There's a whitish head, just more than one finger, that doesn't last very long. Lacing is minimal.
The scent is predominantly hops with perhaps a slight undertone of grain and yeast.
The taste translates accurately enough; hops and yeast. There is an underlying skunkiness, though, and the flavor is a bit weak.
The body is light to medium and carbonation is moderate.
If you're sometimes forced to hang out with people who drink Corona, Bud, or Miller, you'll be glad is some of these are around. If you hang out with hopheads, though, you won't really want this one around. Pretty middle of the road.

this is a perfectly fine lager, and anyone who says otherwise should consider what a lager is supposed to be. it is supposed to be easy to drink and balanced so that no flavors overwhelm over the course of drinking more than a few.
I must say though, this beer just like many other imports, it should be in a brown bottle.
some people may not even be familiar with the differences, but these import lagers ive tried in both green and brown bottles, they always taste better in the brown bottle, and its easily noticeable. The green bottle gives the beer an almost sour sweetness, and the brown bottle has a more natural grainy tasting sweetness without the sour flavor which is also referred to as a skunky flavor. The thing ive noticed, is that when i purchase a 12 pack package of this st. pauli girl beer, since the beer is not exposed to light, the beer taste more like it should taste without that certain skunky sweetness. i pour it into a glass from a distance to get rid of the extra carbonation put in it, and it taste absolutely awesome over a 6 beer drinking session. I just suggest to get it in the 12 pack package so that the beer has not been effected by light.
