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.

Poured from a green bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: clear and golden yellow. It produces a white head that quickly disappears and leaves a bit of lacing.

Smell: I agree with the other reviewers. It smells skunked.

Taste: horrible. I was only able to drink about half before it became a drain pour.

There are hundreds of much better beers out there. Don't waste money on this crap.

This beer is just OK for me. I consider this a lady's beer because my wife really likes it and so do most of the women who drink beer. I can't imagine going to the corner bar and ordering one of these. It taste best on a hot summer day. For a 4.6% ABV it has great flavor. For those who like hoppy and an ABV of 7% or more, this is not to your liking.
