Appearance - Pours a hazy golden color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly. Has decent lacing.

Smell - Slightly sweet, skunky, bread, and a hint of citrus.

Taste - Slight bit of citrus and skunky.. Bread notes and mild bitterness. Seems a little watered down.

Mouthfeel - Has a little zing to it. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - Not a bad beer, as long as you don't mind the skunk.

I brought a 500ml can of Lowenbrau Original home from a recent trip to Europe. The beer pours a clear pale golden hue, with one finger of foamy white head, which slightly laced on the glass. It smells of grain and saaz like hops. The taste is grain and malt with slight hops. The mouthfeeel was medium body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer to session.

A: in its color is an average lager somewhere between amber and orange, completely translucent. it presents small bubble carbonation, the carb is constant and generates an average white foam with retention of the same qualities.

S: malts are perceived in the aroma. very lightly smell

T: With a bitter taste from beginning to end but the end is not very deep and ends semi dry.

Pours crystal clear gold with large head that soon dissipates to foamy layer, no lacing. Aroma is some malt, faint grassy hops.

Taste is sweetish malt with grassy hops and weak notes of citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp and light with moderate carbonation.

Unsophisticated and very drinkable Helles for an excellent price.
