Overview St. Pauli Girl is a northern German beer brand owned, like many international pale lagers, by AB InBev. Despite being notable for the cartoon of a busty beer wench on the label and the annual selection of a real-life model to serve as the St. Pauli Girl in poster campaigns, the brewery in Bremen is about as far as one can get from Oktoberfest without exiting Germany, both physically and stylistically.

Flavors and aromas We liked St. Pauli more than most of the internationally styled light lagers, noting a discernible noble hop character on the nose and a softly lingering bitterness. This beer has malt character without coming across as sweet, which is sadly rare in this style of beer.
