A- Pale Gold with a thick white head that seems creamy.

S-sweet malt and some grassy hops

T- A mild sweetness and again grassy hops in a nicely balanced mix.

M-Dry and medium bodied that finishes clean.

O- This a very nice german pilsner , a little less skunky and a bit more flavor and body than Beck's. I think it is exactly what one should expect from a german pilsner. I would recomend this one for sure if your looking to quaff a few lagers.

330mL bottle (best before 4/29/2012) into a weizen glass.

Pours a pale yellow w/ a bright white head, really vigorous carbonation. Head leaves sticky, sudsy lacing in the glass. A really nice looking beer, typical German carbonation.

Aroma is grainy and bland.

Taste is floral European hops, pilsner malt. Light, sweet, clean.

Mouthfeel is smooth, crisp and refreshing.

Overall a nice, easy-drinking session beer. Nothing extraordinary here, just a standard pilsner.

warsteiner pils is a very pale yellow, with a modest amount of fluffy white lacing. Sweet, bready, crackers in the aroma with a bit of spicy and grassy hops. A mouthful reveals sweet base malts, which quickly get caught up with a somewhat strange bitterness. It finishes clean and fairly dry. Overall, it's not as lively tasting as the more expensive german pils, but for the price it's a good beer to have around when you just want to drink a beer. Just make sure it's fresh enough or it will lose much of it's already modest merit.

11.2 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pilsner glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a transparent straw golden color, with half a finger of thin white head. What head there is dissipates quickly, and it looks highly carbonated. Generally appealing.

S - Crisp, refined barley and pilsner malt, musty floral hops, and a bit of that familiar (BMC) adjunct smell. Mild strength and clean. Not terrible, but not great either.

T - An all too watery body bleeds to the climax where some flavor finally comes through. The hops are the most noticeable note, though they're very restrained. The cereal grain taste seems very stale.

M - Light bodied, a bit coarse through a smooth finish. Not bad.

D - It's a pretty easy drinker, though that's cause there ain't a whole lot going on. I'd pass on it.

Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a nice pure clear golden with a thick two-finger head. Generous amount of lacing left on glass.

Smell: Spicy hops, bready malts, water and grass

Taste: The forefront brings spicy hops with a nice mild bitterness throughout. You can also really taste the bready malts, the flavors are mixed and balanced well.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, moderate to light body, high carbonation, slightly smooth

Overall: An excellent example of a German pilsner. Spicy hops and bready malts dominate this one. Definitely recommended.
