look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from green bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a two finger head of a pure white color. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – Now being poured from a green bottle this is not too surprising, but the beer is full of a big skunky smell. Along with this aroma is a decently strong grainy smell as well as a bit of a grassy and hay like aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier grainy taste with just a hint of a caramel sweetness. As the taste advances some more grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue along with a light skunk flavor. Overall the skunk is quite light however and with a bit of a biscuit flavor and a slightly dwindling of the caramel more toward the end of the taste, one is left with a mild and somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thinner and more watery side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the style of the brew and make for an easy drinker.

Overall – Nothing really special here. A dry lager that, unfortunately due to the desire to put in a green bottle, has a slightly skunky flavor with a big skunk aroma. Nothing too special, but not insanely offensive either.

st Pauli girl lager 12pk bottles $12.99(OH)

buy this in a sealed 12 pack if you can. light will kill this beers flavor and smell.

12oz green bottle poured into a pint glass. best before date clearly marked on back label.

pours a pale yellow color, not quite straw yellow. with about a one finger bright white head that doesn't last long. however a very thin layer remains on top and leaves rings of sticky lacing.

i smell hints of apples, maybe grapes. the noble hops take over. (the fresher the better and this brew is best when stored dark)

the taste is light and crispy with a slight taste of apples and noble hops. the after taste is kind of bitter and leaves the mouth a little dry. (the fresher the better and this brew is best when stored dark)

the mouth feel is very light/thin like that of a light beer. the mouth feel is crisp and decent but leaves your mouth dry. i thought this beer was 5.1 not 4.9 ABV. which is not a disappointment but i was surprised.

overall for an imported German brew i was not disappointed, however it is better in a 12 pack. the green bottles let in light. 6 packs let in lots of light. 12 packs dont. F.Y.I
