Pours a dark golden color with a foamy white head. A faint malty smell. Taste is a faint maltyness as well. Mouthfeel is watered down. Overall I like this beer. I feel like it's what BMC was supposed to taste.

I had this at a Hungarian restaurant; nothing was on tap and the bottled choices were very unexciting. I had fond memories of this pre craft beer so I thought I'd give it a try. It wasn't bad so much as it was unexciting; a utilitarian thirst quencher that at no time caused me to think "this is really good".

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. I have had this dozens of times in the past, first time for a review. The appearance is a clear light yellow color with a very small white head. The aroma is all "skunk". The taste is awful, the first flavor is skunky followed by some mild hops.

Pours golden, the smell was bitter. Taste was bitter but not a lot of flavor. Mouth feel was light and crisp.

Can't believe I liked this stuff when I was 18! Just had a bottle last night, or I should say that I had half a bottle. First impression was "This can't be right!" Subsequent tastes confirmed that yes, St Pauli girl is a boring, watery waste of money. God knows why it has a cultural presence, but it's amazing what an ad campaign can do. Overall, it has no flavor (I'm not sure what other reviewers mean by "skunky"), no complexity, no nothing.

This is just an average Euro lager, it pours a golden color with about a finger of head. It leaves some lacing in the glass. Overall just average.

I have not had this beer since I was younger and now that I recently bought it I now know why I bought it when I was younger. This beer is really good plain and simple. 12 oz bottle smelled good at first opening drank straight from the bottle.
Good hopps but not over the top and good lingering flavor, nothing bitter with this beer. Born date 7/2015 and still holds it's taste at 12/16, most people wouldn't bother because of the date. I'm glad I tried it again and will buy more of it.
