Very nice beer with presence. This is a very solid choice for flavor and character. Mildly carbonated. At the forefront of this beer is pure malt with good tingle on your tounge. Afterward you are left with a nice bitterness from the hops. The hopp notes stay with your pallet for a few minutes. This beer is not sweet at all, you get burned toast-like flavor. Best of all, you dont get that copper penny smell or aftertaste like the American beers. Pure goodness.

I've had this many, many times. In fact. years ago, before microbreweries were everywhere (and I was on a very limited beer budget) I used to buy 12 packs of this locally at a fairly cheap price. It's a decent pilsener, one that I typically now purchase in tall cans (and still at a good price). It pairs with pizza. The hops are subtle, but it has some crispness. When I'm in the mood for this style, I slightly prefer Bitburger to be honest.

Very clear golden color with lots of visible carbonation. Two fingers of a white head that intially poured out as kind of creamy and became something like large soap bubbles. Lacing down the glass.

Smells grassy with some malts and a slight presence of hops.

Taste has a bit of grassiness to it. A bit of hop flavor towards the back of the mouth. Has that clean water taste as well.

Mouth is very light and oddly a bit flat. The mouth feel finishes crisply.

Overall this is a good pilsner. Seems to be a nice light beer that would go well with a summer BBQ. I also like the presentation on the bottle as well. Very nice labels and looks quite imperial. The bottles do only contain 11.2 oz. as that odd European bottling goes. For those looking for a pilsner this should tick most of thier boxes.

Crisp clean smooth light. Went down like water. Very easy drinking a very nice Pilsner beer. I had this on tap. So it was definitely a nice all-around beer. Definitely recommend this but on tap.

Look: golden and bubbly with a quickly dissipating thin white head

Smell: a bit dank, a bit grassy, a bit malty, very inviting

Taste: malty, a touch of grass, and a faint grainy flavor

Feel: creamy, smooth, and crisp, what you want in a pilsner

Overall: not a bad pilsner, refreshing and no frills

Review: 0,5l, a nice can of Warsteiner Premium German Pilsener: ABV. 4.8% vol

In a nice light brownish coloured can with the famous and striking Warsteiner logo of the crown with the slogan “Eine Königin unter den Bieren” (“A Queen amongst Beers”).

On pour got a nice decent frothy white head of beer with a light golden colour, a nice looking beer. Not a bad looking beer.

A very beery lagery smell, malty but light enough on the nose.

Good initial soft taste. Very smooth, very easy to drink. Slight grainy taste.

Bit of an aftertaste that is apparent in the back end. Light enough though.

Very smooth, nice and clean, easy to drink.

Would be nice to have a kick or a stronger taste though as it is a little too mild for me.

2nd can.
Slight grassy taste. Creamy and malty. Frothy mouthful. Very smooth.
No real kick, little alcohol to be tasted. Very watery too.

After an initial flurry of excitement it all got a little bit boring and generic in the end. Ok beer, could be better.

Heavy grains partnered with malts. Light hop taste but there isn't much there. Grain and malt overtake the mouth.

Taste rating in words: A smooth backbone
