I live on the east coast in the U.S. and I found a 4 can pack of this beer for 5 bucks and thought the price was wrong as it's imported beer which is usually way more expensive in my area. For some reason I can only keep down imported beer. I thought it was going to taste bad since it was so cheap...but I was surprised that it was quite pleasant tasting. My favorite beer is Stella ...and Sapporo (Japanese beer). This one rates somewhere in the middle, being very refreshing and has a kick to it that says... you are drinking beer!! not flavored water :-). I recommend drinking it very cold. It's great with comfort and fast foods and I will be looking for it again...I hope the price remains this low, as it will be my regular basic go to beer. Way way better than any U.S. beer I have tasted. Cheers!!

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

DATE TASTED: November 22, 2014... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: Cavs STILL trying to figure "it" out... APPEARANCE: sallow yellow, mostly clear body with large, consistent bubbles; three-finger sudsy head settles to a chunky consistency; lacing is sparse and filmy... AROMA: lightly aromatic, almost flowery at first; secondary malts are subtler like warm toast... PALATE: reasonably stable backbone, with some fizzle in the throat--a bit dry, oily and elusive....TASTE: a rather fruity pilsner, with some lemongrass and toast mixed in; an unassuming, apologetically soft rinser... OVERALL: a good prelude for nachos and salsa, but the initial experience is shallow, aftertaste is slight, and the rest is generally ho-hum example of the genre ...

Hard to properly rate the look considering I'm drinking it at a dark bar, however, from what I can see it is a very pale straw color. I detect a nice hop aroma at first, however, as the thin white lace subsides and I get further along in the drink its a mostly malty aroma. Taste and feel are very clean, malty, bready but very little hops bite or bitterness. Low carbonation. Has neither the spicy quality or the hops kick of other continental pilsners I enjoy. An uncomplicated, very clean and smooth pilsner but ultimately a bit bland for my tastes.

Grainy pils malts on the nose with light spice and a hint of earthiness. Presents a very clean and crisp palate with light grain flavors leading to a crisp, spicy, clean hop finish. Light and dry.
