The aroma is grainy with faintly spicy, herbal hops; the overall effect is reminiscent of crayons and apple. The pale golden body is very clear with a smooth, white head with notable retention. Fairly flavorful and bitter, the taste is actually somewhat pleasant with some grainy malt and light fruitiness akin to bland pear. A hint of butter comes through over time. The body is of course light and crisp and suitably carbonated.

Not bad at all for the style. While far from unique, it is at least flavorful and refreshing with a good balance between the malt, hop flavor, and bitterness.

I may be being generous in saying das pilsner is exquisite. While the Brew Master could add a little more hops to my taste the beer is exceptionally good for social sessions. It pours gold and you can watch the carbonation sift to the surface, a nice sweet frothy head, head where all the malts are, if poured correctly, exquisite.

Some say God owns this company. For Pilsner I'm in a toss up between Warsteiner Premium Pilsner Beer and Carlsberg Pilsner, Wartsrteiner with a touch to little hops and Calsberg with a delicious touch to much. If Carlsberg and Warsteiner could have a child, that would be the best pilsner ever made, besides Heineken.

First time trying a Warsteiner product. Pleasantly surprised.

Beer pours a dark golden and almost amber colour.

Smell was what a beer should be. Not too strong, and not weak.

Taste was amazing. Almost exactly what a pilsner should taste like. No aftertaste.

Mouthfeel was what it should be. Lots of carbonation, and went down smooth.

Overall I was very impressed. I will definitely be purchasing this beer again. Well worth a drink.

Poured from a can. Not the most flavorful of the German pilsners. Still drinkable and ok for a thirst quencher type of brew.

Can poured into an antique German beer glass

Pale golden yellowstraw to golden in color. Clear, few carbonation bubbles. White bubbles on the top, some lacings.

Aroma of spices, herbs, floral hops.

Spicy, floral hops on the middle and back of the tongue.

Light body, slight sudsing. Easily quaffable .

Imagine an American Budweiser except with more taste and flavor.

Smells like roast pork, dumplin's & kraut. Light amber in color, medium head slow to drop, gentle on mustache. Caress it and slowly sip or it will send you buttward. For the utmost in a Warsteiner experience, HEAD EAST ON HWY 50 from Sacramento to So. Lake Tahoe, CA. 'Bout half the way up into the Sierra Nevadas, just shy of Echo Pass, you'll spot St. Pauli's Restaurant on your right. ST. PAULI'S has the best German food from San Francisco to the Atlantic Coast. You can dine in the nostalgic Hinterland dining room, or in good weather, take your sup in the pinetops on the balcony that overhangs a fork of the Yuba River. ( Reservations Recommended ) FANTASTIC GERMAN FOOD & SERVICE! EVEN FANTASTICKER WARSTEINER ON TAP!!! ( Great wines too! ) P.S.: Don't attempt the drive over Echo Summit to Lake Tahoe after enjoying St. Pauli's! You don't want to miss Echo Lakes near the top, NOR do U want to miss the Grand Canyonesque view of Christmas Valley/Meyers, Upper Truckee River, waterfalls, the tops of 200' Noble Firs & the lake on the downhill side of Hwy 50 as it drops into the 6.500' Tahoe Basin. Vehicles should not be over 30 feet in length. Acrophobiacs MUST be blindfolded! ( BTW: If in L.A., make reservations at the Old Heidelberg in north Van Nuys.)
