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.

Pours a light straw yellow color with a thick foamy white head. The smell is kind of grassy with a bit of funk and some grainy aromas. The taste is slightly bitter with a subtle flavor of grass and lemon. The beer is light with sharp carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This is a good German lager with lots of flavor and easy drinking.

Best before 9/6/12.

Pours a clear light orange with a 1/2 inch foamy white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grains and some grape juice fruity aromas. Taste is pretty much the same along with a medium herbal bitterness that lingers on the palate with each sip. This beer has a pretty good level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink but nothing too exciting really.

Appearance - Pours a crystalline yellow, almost like a dehydrated man’s piss. Super clear ambering yellow in color. A thick fat white head with good retention and lots of carbonation racing through the glass.

Smell - It smells tart and slightly buttery, an almost tang of citrus. Hops are light and tangy slightly and very clean.

Taste - Tart and citrusy. Cool and crisp. The malts are tangy and stinging. Fits the pils style well.

Mouthfeel - Very bubbly and crisp on the tongue and well carbonated. Light and coarse on the tongue. After taste is fresh and light on the edges of the tongue, but slightly more thick on the tongue’s back.

Overall – Not a bad pils, nice malty flavoring with a cool crisp tang to the mouth.
