look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Crystal clear, straw yellow, dirty tap water, etc...with a tall, 4 finger head that eventually recedes to a cloudy pillowy layer of 1/2 finger.

Smells of hay, straw, barnyard, musty grains.

Flavor is not particularly impressive, but it is clean and crisp, and grainy. Not much flavor actually, either. Just golden baked grains and some faint hay.

Feel is quite perfect for the style, save for a touch of chalkiness at the end.

Overall, Warsteiner Pils won't win any awards, but earns my vote for a total summer kegger or an easy drinking BBQ beer. Just simple and right on point.

Yellow color with average head and ok lacing. Smells of mild hops, some yeast, citrus, and maybe some biscuit. Taste is pretty good, mild hops, some fruit, mild grain. Overall a clean finish and not a bad beer for the price, would have this again, for its class it was not a bad beer.

Light golden color. Fair amount of carbonation but not much head. Some bitterness without overdoing it. Pretty smooth drinker but left me still wanting something.
