Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 33: Lowenbrau Original

The first time I saw this brew was at Munich Oktoberfest in 1992 where it was being swilled by drunken Aussies. I came to see it as Fosters Of Germany, and never tried it. So now, in the interests of The Quest...

Lowenbrau Original

The lager is very pale, and has a small amount of bubble that sustains a fine lace once the small head fades.

First Sip: Malty, with a small amount of hops that lingers as a faint bitterness on the back of the tongue. There is also a citrus tastes in there; not sour lemon but close to it. A very faint carbonation tingle on the tongue

The mouth feel is crisp and light bodied and quite smooth. The malt and citrus become more noticeable as the beer warms a little.

I've changed my mind. It's not Fosters Of Germany. It's *drinkable* and quite nice. A good round-the-bbq beer.
