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 +1.4%
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-style 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/unstruck match edginess.

The carbonation is fairly low and non-participatory, 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, 'zehr 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 entails.

-pours a clear straw golden with a medium to big,foamy,white head
-medium to high carbonation visible
-big whiff of skunkiness,sweet grains,lemon,soapy,grassy,nettle
-grassy,zesty,spicy,grainy,corn sweetness
-medium to high,lingering bitterniss
-medium carbonation
-light to medium body
Its what it promises to be, a Warsteiner with a more pronounced hoppiness.
I don't know what geniuses decided to put the Breweries most hoppy Beer in a green bottle,while all their other offerings are in brown Bottles though

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...

500 ml can, exp. 09/2016, label says "double hopped". Pouring in a pilsner glass a very clear straw-colored beer, with large amount of foam, the kind that sticks to the glass leaving semicircles for each sip. I felt the extra hops more on its bitterness and aftertaste than on aromas. I guess the can might not taste as good as the bottled version. Carbonation is just where it needs to be and contributes to an exciting freshness and drinkability without getting nearly unbalanced. Light bodied and refreshing, this beer still has lots of character.
