Pours a crystal clear straw color with a pure white head. Smells slightly slinky with some maltiness and not much smell to speak of.
The taste is light breadiness with sweetness and no real hop flavor. It's crisp but there's not much more to write about here.
The mouthfeel is thin with decent carbonation.
Overall it's a subpar, made for America interpretation of what a good German beer should be.
You can pass on this one and not regret it.

Appearance Delicate light yellow in color without much of a head.
Smell Straight skunk from forty paces out. Theres a bit of that pils hop aroma in the glass if you dare to venture close enough, but otherwise this is one of the skunkiest beers that Ive ever had.
Taste The nasty skunk flavors turn to pukish Gummi-Bear sweets. This is nasty with a capital N.
Mouthfeel A thin body and some cheap carbonation made this one tough to swallow.
Sinkability This one is heading for the drain.

This is a decent macro import that is always on sale here and is great for warm weather drinking. It pours a golden color with a good white head that stays for awhile and leaves a thin sheat of lace down my glass. The smell is a littly funky but not bad, and has a decent ammount of malt in the nose as well. The taste is refreshing with its crisp bite, good malt flavors and a slight hop flavor as well. This is my macro import of choice.

Wow, this is a lot worse than I expected.
Ultra-thin, very light colored body. Corn/grass smell (stench). Noxious, offensive, invasive taste. I cant even say it goes down easy, so even the drinkability is low.
I guess this is the Budweiser of Germany, but at least you can ignore Bud while you are drinking it. St Pauli Girl is like a slap in the mouth.

Presentation: 12oz green bottle. And, there she is again. My girl friend, St. Pauli Girl. Freshness date stamped on the back.
Appearance: Ultra clear and pale. Moderate carbonation activity, creating a thin whisp of a white lace. Sticky and holds as a ring around the glass.
Smell: Light grain and sulfur aromas (by-product of the yeast).
Taste: Light and crisp upfront. Malt sweetness is mild, but rounded, complete. Hops are tea-like, floral, some herbal notes too as it lightly prickles the palate. Light sulfur flavours abaft it all. Finishes with grain notes, leaving the palate a tad dry.
Notes: An okay brew, even despite those awesomely cheesy adverts and stigma on imported lager -- in comparison to others of the same style.

Overall I like this beer, fairly smooth, good taste, doesn't go down as easy as some but not bad overall. Good to try something different if your in the mood for something new. Overall not a bad beer now and again but wouldn't drink it regularly.Maybe it's great on tap, never had a chance to try it.

Pours an amber yellow color with a white head with decent lacing. This is a German macro that kicks ass on American macros. Taste is malty, with very modest hoppiness. You do get the feeling that the ingredients have been played out, however. Still, a decent beer.

The beer pours a light clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is exactly what I expected from an imported beer in a green bottle: skunked grain and nothing else. I am holding it against the brewer in my rating since it was their choice to use a green bottle. The flavor has a little bit of skunk, but not as much as in the aroma. I also get some grain and grass notes from the hops. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

First off, I am bias about this beer. This is the second import I ever tried in my life way back in the underage days. A friend who was an exchange student introduced me to it. As far as "quantity" (not quality) is concerned, it is the number one import that I buy. In a way, St. Pauli Girl planted the seed that grew into my culture of drinking many types of beer.
The beer pours a lighter golden color with a huge head. Very huge head and I pour beer correctly. Also, it is by far not the first time I have poured it so I knew what to expect. The smell is the benchmark I hold for German beers. A bias high marks for it. The taste is a little on the weak side compared to other German beers. What it lacks in taste (for German beers), it make up in drinkability. I would guess that it is a popular hard drinking beer in Germany, but I can not confirm that.

Yellow pour with a while bubbly head. Typical lager aroma, lots of metal and rice. This is augmented with a saaz sweetness. More bitterness in the taste, with a grainy tang that actually goes well with the hops. Like a Heineken with more flavor and without the skunky aroma.
