st Pauli girl lager 12pk bottles $12.99(OH)

buy this in a sealed 12 pack if you can. light will kill this beers flavor and smell.

12oz green bottle poured into a pint glass. best before date clearly marked on back label.

pours a pale yellow color, not quite straw yellow. with about a one finger bright white head that doesn't last long. however a very thin layer remains on top and leaves rings of sticky lacing.

i smell hints of apples, maybe grapes. the noble hops take over. (the fresher the better and this brew is best when stored dark)

the taste is light and crispy with a slight taste of apples and noble hops. the after taste is kind of bitter and leaves the mouth a little dry. (the fresher the better and this brew is best when stored dark)

the mouth feel is very light/thin like that of a light beer. the mouth feel is crisp and decent but leaves your mouth dry. i thought this beer was 5.1 not 4.9 ABV. which is not a disappointment but i was surprised.

overall for an imported German brew i was not disappointed, however it is better in a 12 pack. the green bottles let in light. 6 packs let in lots of light. 12 packs dont. F.Y.I

330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear, deep gold with a soapy one finger white head. No lacing at all and very poor head retention.

Aroma has a distinct metallic twang mixed with skunk. I can just get a whiff of noble hops but they are buried under some bad smells.

Thankfully, the flavor is much better than the aroma. The metal is gone replaced by bread grain and grassy hops with a bit of spice thrown in. There is a little bit of tartness that seems out of place, along with a moderate bitterness and clean finish. The finish isn't super crisp but it isn't bad.

Overall, this beer is ok but just lacks the refinement of some other German pilsners. While the price is good, I would take a Bitburger over this any day.

Poured into a A&W Root beer mug.

A: Appearance is probably the best part of this beer, looks light-golden with a small head, but could have to do with glass that went through dishwasher.

S: Ew, not very appealing at all. Smells of skunky, tin only. The skunky aroma fills the area surrounding me after opening the bottle, very disgusting. I don't mind skunky but this is like "off-skunky" After all it comes in a green bottle it will get skunky as Heineken does I suppose. (btw Heneiken is waaaay better than this)

T: Eh, ok nothing to great or offensive. Thankfully it doesn't taste like it smells, no tinny strangeness. Just a general grain taste, with a slight hop bitterness. No hop flavors. Disappointing as this is supposedly an import beer from the fatherland of lager.

M: Slightly and pleasantly carbonated. If everything else was great this would compliment the possible theoretical flavors and smells of this beer.

O: 2.50 . It's just not that great. It's not horrible like budweiser or miller lite. But it is a sub-par beer with Heineken *somehow* being better than this! Comon local party store, stock some quality authentic German lager!! Not this stuff!! ;)
