Skunkayyyy! For some reason, I have always enjoyed the pure skunkaliciousness of Steinlager. Its a lager that hits you in the nose and mouth. Once you get past the initial assault, this beer disappears in a hurry and leaves a barely noticeable hop trace. I'm a sucker for beers in green bottles (Moosehead, Henry's Blue Boar, the original Rolling Rock), so it's no wonder that I fall for this beer from time to time.

The taste was very poor and the smell was worse.

The carbonation attacked my mouth with a vigor I have yet to experience from a beer.

However income back to the smell and I can't get paste that.

I feel that this beer would not outsell Most American lower level beers. In fact I can't even decide what flavors are in this beer.

Not a fan. Very skunky. I really can't get past the skunk smell to give an honest assessment. I drank the whole thing out of respect to Beer in general, but it is not worth a trip to New Zealand. Rugby good, beer bad.

Seriously, I am not a fan of euro lagers. It may be great, but it tastes like bad Heineken.
