3.48/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz green bottle with no freshness date. Blurb about the brewery and a bit of history on the back label.

Appearance: Shaded yellowish straw hue, tiny bubbled carbonation that forms a thin blanketing white lace.

Smell: Fresh milled grain and the sweetness of a malted barley mash as well as clean boiled hops come to mind, pretty much what an American lager should smell like.

Taste: Crisp medium carbonation with a moderate malty body and a smooth and inviting mouth feel. Malt is straight up one sided which is goes well with this beers disposition, clean on the palate … almost immaculate. Hops are sharp and to the point with their quick in and out bitterness. Fresh drying grain pulls any sweetness away from the tongue and puckers the mouth into a clean after taste of little residual.

Notes: A clean and quick to drink lager, better than its US counterpart while leaving a touch more quality without taking away from the swift drinkability of most American lagers.

2.64/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

DATE REVIEWED: July 19, 2014... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: family visiting day completed...APPEARANCE: lively, effervescent body of pale yellow straw; thick, two-finger foamy head that creates surprisingly beautiful white lacing; wonderful cirrus clouds ring the glass... AROMA: heavy dough and biscuit; hops are slightly aromatic;, but more corny than floral; enough tin to suggest a metallic base... PALATE: medium-bodied, refreshingly swift in the aftertaste; a bit grassy and slightly beefy... TASTE: beefy, meaty malts are strong and dominate the profile; subtler flowers include metallic water hose and, to a lesser extent, honey... OVERALL: a college indulgence--just as step above the Natty Lights of the world--becomes a decent Saturday night lager; requires some attention while sipping...

2.75/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Type: bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a thin white head that disappears quickly. Clear golden color. The taste is slightly hoppy. The mouthfeel is good as well. This is far from the best beer in the world, but it's good after a long hot day. I would drink it again if offered.
