Hard to rate this beer because I believe there are two types, the dark lager and the light lager. However, this review perteins to the dark one. The taste is very different to that of Newcasttle Brown Ale. Except for the nice caramely taste of that of Newcasttle.

It is very strong on the malt and bitternes, taste darker than it looks.

Overall a great beer if you like that dark bitter taste.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with rising bubbles. The white head calms to a film that stays around. Little or no lacing.

Aroma: A little bit of skunkiness with grains and malts.

Taste: Malt sweetness cuts through some of the skunk, while cereal grains and hints of dried grass come out.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light, dry.

Overall: The odd skunk notes really kill this beer :(

Bottle 300 ml.
The first time I had this I was really dissapointed, it was like I was drinking water with cornflakes in it, so strong was the cor flavour. After a trip to Germany where I had it again on tap and on bottles again in almost every restaurant, I start to believe that maybe my first Warsteiner was skunked. Today I had it again and it tasted quite okay, nice golden colour and all, except of the smell which was too corn-y once again.

A - pure, clear, golden yellow; big, soft, white, foamy, dense head; good retention

S - musty, grainy, straw, yeast, grass, noble hops

T - musty, grassy, straw, bitter, noble hops

M - light bodied, smooth, crisp, well carbonated

This is a decent beer. It has that euro lager yeast, musty aroma and taste, but it still has some great flavor. It's worth trying.
