I've been living in Germany for 2 years now, and must admit I hadn't drunk any Lowenbrau until just the last 6 months.
In the States, I hadn't drunk Lowenbrau for over 5 years because it always seemed to be skunky. I visited the Lowenbrau Keller in Munich last summer, and had a Helles, and it was very tasty. So, I bought a few bottles at the local Getranke, and wow, it tastes very good.
So, since I've been drinking it for the past 6 months, thought I would write a review.
Pours a nice clear straw color from a 50 cl brown bottle (exp Nov08). White foamy head that dissipates quickly. Little lacing.
Smells malty, with a bit of hops and grass. Some of the typical sweetness one would expect in a Helles.
Tastes sweet up front, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish that lingers.
Mouthfeel is very good. A little creamy, with some body, but not too much. Some dry side effects with the hint of bitterness.
Not a bad beer in my opinion. Not the best Helles I've ever had, but I find it smooth and easy to drink.
