For a long time, Löwenbräu beers were brewed for the U.S. market by Miller, then they were brewed in Canada for a while. Now we're getting the real thing direct from Germany, and the difference in quality is astonishing. Welcome back, Löwenbräu!

      Bright yellow, low carbonation, thick head. Wonderful fresh malt aroma. Medium body, massive fresh malt flavor, fairly sweet. Finishes sweet. A drier finish would make this an excellent beer. "Original Munich Recipe".
