Gawd...this is one terrible beer.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a white cap. Carbonation cascades up the glass.

Smell: Cooked corn! I finally figured out what that meant. This beer is cooked corn all over the place. With shades of cold garbage and veggie waste.

Taste: Some bitterness (hop maybe), stale wheat bread, and a sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Water.

Drinkability: I think not.

Overall: A terrible beer. I tried this just because I needed to understand the antithesis of craft beer. This is it. Look no further and avoid if all possible. This definitely provides perspective and a contrast to the usual fare of fine brews I have grown accustom to.

First had: a party somewhere.

First thing that comes to mind is people going: "Wooo!" Pours nicely into a red Solo cup, a clear, watery, straw-yellow, with fizzy bubbles and a small head that recedes to practically nothing. Weak scents of light grains and green-bottle skunk. Pretty much the same in the taste, grains, rotten hay, skunk, with faint hints of something that could be hops. Light mouthfeel, and not very drinkable at all unless you're drunk already.

This is just an awful awful beer. Let it be known i am a big fan of pilsners but this is just god awful. Poured a very light yellow like color with not much of a head. Heavy carbination with this one as well. Smelled very skunky and remained that way through out. Got a bitter taste with it that was just totally off. This was my first drain pour i just couldn't drink it. Good thing i got it in a mixed six pack...

A pale piss beer that even caused my wife (a non-beer drinker) to comment on how skunky it smelled.

Pours a thin pale yellow with minimal head. Smell of alcohol and bacteria. Taste is horrible. Just don't bother. Skunky notes overshadow a wimpy malt that tries to make your tongue die. Too carbonated and yuk,yuk, yuk.

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.

A- Pale yellow, high carbonation, thin white head that quickly fades and leaves minimal lace rings.

S- Underneath there are sweet caramel malts, but it is overpowered with earthy, musty hops and citrus tones. Kicking everything else is skunk.

T- Earthy tones, citrus and grass, musty notes, and skunk. Caramel notes are there but hard to trace through all the must and skunk.

M- Nothing impressive, overly fizzy

D- I poured it out it was so skunky.

St. Pauli Girl: Truly awful. In the traditional 12 ounce green bottle, with a date of 11/03 marked somewhere on the back. Very pale yellow, with a big white frothy head, could not hide the incredible skunked aroma. The aroma was also dominant in the taste as well. This was a substantially below average beer, until about four hours later, when the skunk taste was still there. Bad.

skunk, skunk skunk. tastes like corona that's been sitting in the sun for days. very nice foamy head and nice bubbles.
i really can't taste anything except for sourness. very light hops, very little malt. stale bread. almost tastes like onions. I really hated this beer. not much else to say. maybe i got a bad batch.

I really do not like this one. From the standard green bottle, poured into clear dixie cup. Golden pour with decent fluffy white head. Aroma is skunk and light hay, no sweetness, a bit of dryness. Taste is like sucking on a skunk's ass. Why do breweries continue to use the green bottles. I have had this multiple times and no improvement. I tend to prefer the standard macros like Bud Light to this one.
