3/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Crisp yellowish color with bubbles of carbonation racing towards the top of the glass.
Smell: Not necessarily an aroma bomb but there are some hops and big grain smell on the nose.
Taste: Clean and crisp, nothing to write home about. Some light grain, roasted corn and hops are present here.
Mouthfeel: As was expected it was a bit thin and quite carbonated.
Drinkability: Slam a 6er on the front 9 drinkable.
Thoughts: If I take everything into consideration (price, rarity, type of beer, etc) I think this is pretty decent. Especially if you are looking for a summer beer and don't want to follow the crowd and start stuffing citrus fruit into clear bottled skunk ass beer. Give this one a shot while on the boat or the beach.

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.
