This beer poured a pale yellow color with a bright white head that quickly disappeared leaving no lace.
Its smell was very mild, so mild that I cannot really pin down any particular scent that I can detect. To be honest, it smelled like beer; is that nondescript enough? I am reminded of when I would smell my father's beer as a child. Very general.
The taste was dry with a refined bitterness. Since I bought it in a sealed twelve-pack there was no skunkiness at all. Only a fool, in my opinion, would buy a beer such as this in an unprotected package.
The beer had a very light and effervescent mounthfeel. Very spritzy and appropriate for the style.
The drinkablilty for this beer is incredible. Crisp and clean. Goes down so easy that it could be consumed all night, albeit with no thought involved.

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.
