I love malty German lagers and this one quite enjoyable. It has a complex and balanced flavor, while at the same time being rather light and easy to drink. I like the lower ABV as in general I enjoy lower ABV beers but unfortunately cannot find many that have enough flavor and body to satisfy me.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

Clear dark brown color with a decent head and good lacing. Toasted malt smell, dried grass. Slightly sweet and earthy, pumpernickel toast. Not bad.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a medium to dark orange brown with a thin, off-white head that dissipates to patches, with light lacing. Aroma of dark malt, brown bread; hints of cocoa and coffee. Flavor follows, with dark, bready malt, brown bread, light cocoa, starts slightly sweet and dries out into the finish with lingering dark toasted malt. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nice, mellow dunkel, nothing really stands out, but it really adheres to style and is pleasant drinking. Maybe a little light in flavor, but is a quite satisfactory and enjoyable dunkel.

Warsteiner Premium Dunkel brewed by Warsteiner Brauerei, with an ABV of 4.90% This Munich Dunkel Lager pours out of a glass bottle into a pint beer glass a nice deep brown color with a nice off white head. There is some mirror spotty lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with roasted goodness. You pick up a lot of roasted grains and malts. Light on the hops but it is there . You also pick up on a slight sweetness in the smell as well. The look and smell reminds you of coffee, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste , it is Bold with flavors. Lots of roasted grains, malts, with a touch of sweetness. This brew would go nice with dinner. The body is a solid medium, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. It has a super nice balance to it. The roasted flavors do it for this brew. If you are a fan of dark brews or of roasted flavors you should look this brew up. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Roasted, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Warsteiner Premium Dunkel a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to.Warsteiner Brauerei, did a real nice job with this brew.

Lighter beer. Good for a warm day. More complex flavor than a lager.

330mL bottle bb 12/14/18 poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temp 4.8% ABV. The beer pours bright light brown with ruby highlights. The head is khaki in color and recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is mild with baker's cocoa, bread and yeast all contributing something. The taste is a little roasty with some bread and a mildly bitter, earthy hop finish. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a little extra sharpness in the feel that may not belong. Overall, ok. This would be a nice option with food, but I'm fairly sure there are better in the class.

Bottle states "best before 8/28/18

Pours an incredibly deep amber-brown capped with a finger of off-white head maintaining a solid ring around the surface throughout.

Aroma is of stiff rye bread crusts, heavily roasted malts, freshly charred fire wood, and a solid barley base.

Taste invites more pronounced earthy barley notes to take the lead over now-light doses of bready malt; there's a subtle yeasty character following each not through to the finish.

Mouthfeel is relatively thin, but is bolstered nicely with medium carbonation that leads it to ultimately finish on the crisper side with some sticky, yeasty undertones.

Comfortable, bready, and loaded with yeasty barley to make for a pretty easy-drinking, if not mostly unspectacular, dunkel.
