Saw this at the Senator Lounge at Frankfurt terminal 1. Had to try. Not bad. Pours a clear light sunshine yellow. Decent head with scant lacing. Aroma is lightly herbal. Label says its Double Hopped but mostly light vegetal in the nose. Some sweetness as well there. Taste is slightly bready then dry an crisp fading to a pleasant bitterness. Light in the mouth overall a decent German Pils. Glad I tried it.

3.57/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

500ml can, with a label proclaiming 'Double Hopped'. It seems to be the same brew as this.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, broadly foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some splendid descending armada, Space Invaders lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of leafy, herbal, and somewhat grassy hop bitters, grainy pale malt, a twinge of petrol, faint sulfur notes, and more indistinct, but weirdly fresh green vegetal astringencies. The taste is bready, doughy pale malt, strange, hard to define tart fruit (could be the overdose of Hallertau here), rather prominent herbal and leafy bitters, and a fading gasohol/struck match edginess.

The carbonation is fairly low and non-participating, for the most part, the body a solid middleweight for the style, and actually pretty smooth, with a burgeoning airy creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the base malt tootin' right along, still wondering where the hell all this extra noble hoppiness is coming from, and how to contend with it.

An interesting, if inevitable conceit, taking the hops in an old-world offering such as this, and just turning up the dial until it seems, um, 'gut'. Anyways, tasty enough, in that mildly harsh German Pils way (no light-struck skunkiness, I can attest to that), with a lower ABV than this kind of bitterness usually suggests.

3.29/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Golden colour, medium head, poor retention, minimal lacing.

S: Pronounced Hallertau.

T: Fruity notes, slightly doughy, more bitterness than regular Warsteiner.

M: Smooth, fading carbonation, thicker texture.

O: Not really different to the usual version, not too interesting.

3.87/5  rDev +18%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pour is pale golden and the white head is medium-tall, but rather light and airy. Lacings are quite nice.

S: Clean malt, (white) bready and light sweet. Bitter hops are very rich and brings both nettles and hay.

T: Follows the smell, and is quite rich and full-tasting. Nice.

M: Long bitter aftertaste, carbonation is rich and a bit offensive, while body is on the lighter side for this style.

O: Not bad at all, perhaps a little more malt had added to the body and the ABV, but I don't know...
