Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: poured with slight white foam, hardly classifiable as "head", very clear and very light colour (3-5 SRM?), low moderate carbonation.

Smell: Typical lager smell, grassy, grainy, slight malt sweetness

Taste: Akin to smell, with some spice, possibly ethanol, slightly herb-y.

Feel: Thin, moderate carbonation, slightly alcoholic, dry.

Overall: I am worried I got a bad batch (for $11AUD it makes sense) but this was underwhelming. Okay, not bad, but nothing more.

L: pours a gold yellow clear color.not much head to speak of.

S: grains, bread , herbs,hops and some honey notes. Tough the aroma is kind of weak.

T&F: follows the nose in much of the ways. Some light malt notes, with herbal hops in the finish.good bitterness in the finish,and the aftertaste have a decent lenght.medium bodied with a crisp bite on the tongue.all in all refreshing feel on this beer.

O: even if this is not a top shelf beer and it,s a lot of other german helles that is much better, it is a fairly drinkable and refreshing beer. I had no problem enjoy this

I first started drinking Lowenbrau in 1992, but by the year 2000 it seemed as if the taste was different and that they changed the recipe... anyone else notice a change in the taste??
