I lived in Germany while working for the US Army. I love German Beer. My wife and I bought St. Pauli Girl because it was "on sale." We both had the same response - "This is Not German Beer!" I did some research and found that St. Pauli is Anheuser Bush brewed in Germany but not sold there. I can only assume, therrefore, that Germans have plenty of good choices and St. Pauli is not one of them. This beer is really some American BS marketed as German beer. What an illusion! It turns out the "models" are not even German girls. What a Farce! I feel like I was bent over and used by Anheuser-Bush. Fool me once... Let me know what you "experts" think of this swill.
