Very clear appearance. Golden color with a lot of rising bubbles. Foamy white head which quickly subsides. Aroma is malty and woody. Very clean, pure malt flavor. A bit of a sweet, alcoholic note and warming feeling, despite only being 5.9% ABV. Light in body but not on flavor.

Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA. The appearance is a clear golden orange color with a medium sized off- white head. The aroma is caramel malt with some yeast in the backdrop. The taste is sweet caramel malt and grains. A solid beer.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is weak some straw and caramel malt some biscuit malt as well. Flavor is watery and grainy giving it a touch of sour. Body is medium light and finish is weak.

Looks great, a nice orange color with a white head that maintained itself for a short while before dissipating. Smelled alright, kind of reminded me of a pumpkin just about to go bad. Taste was not good at all. So devoid of anything enjoyable except maybe a slight taste of...bread? Extremely grainy.

This beer tastes like a Rottweilers penis, don't drink it.

12 oz bottle. Best before May 13th 2017

Pours a clear golden body with a bone white head. Poor retention, little lacing lacing

The classic Marzen "applesauce" smell of malt and yeast with little to no discernible hops

Taste follows but in a very non prominent way. It just tastes weak.

Feel is a little watery

Overall. ; A slightly below average Marzen.

11.2oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry's in Spokane for $1.59. According to the rear label it's best before May 13, 2017. My first beer from this brewery.

Poured into a Widmer shaker pint glass, this was a dark, golden shade of amber. Very thin off-white head, with almost no lace at all.

Malty and vaguely fruity aroma.

This doesn't taste like a "Marzen type " beer (per the label; my phone can't figure out how to do umlauts), it tastes like a generic Euro lager, with a sweet, fruity flavor like a mixture of apple and corn. There's a very mild herbal bitterness in the background, but things are mostly a bland malty sweetness.

Medium bodied, with an undercarbonated, semi-lifeless mouthfeel.

Cheap and worth the price, I guess. I'm assuming this is something dumbed down for the American market. I've always steered clear of Warsteiner in the past because I generally assumed it was a kind of German Heineken. This does nothing to change that view. Won't be having this again.

L (4) - Clear, copper colored beer. Not a whole heck of a lot of head on top. But classic "beer" look.
S (3.5) - Not much aroma here. If you stick your whole nose in the glass you get a malty whiff. It's good, but way too subdued.
T (4.25) - Surprisingly tastes very good. Heavy malty taste. Little to no hop (as appropriate). This would be very good in a beer bread or something that doesn't benefit from bitter.
F (3.75) - Very easy to drink, but undercabonated. A little too lacking in that department
O (4.25) - I bought this in a store's "Oktoberfest" sale. I like this style and this is a decent showing, especially considering it's a "macro" offering. I liked it, but am okay with the sixer being done, now.

A bit too malty for this style but great feel and overall tasty. Not sure what it is about warsteiner....they over malt their Pilsner and they over malt their Marzen. Overall not bad but their are better choices.

Pours bronze-orange with white head. Smells of grains, grass, and toasty malt. Tastes on par heavy on the toasty grains and malt notes. Some caramel. Finishes light-medium and sweet. Nice Oktoberfest that harkens to harvest.
