Herforder Brauerei (Warsteiner) Reviews




Steffan
3.5
Herforder Pils
Dark for a pilsner, not much head, maybe one finger. Strong malt backbone, heavy on the palate for a lager and little taste of hops but the moreish malty thickness of the beer is what holds this up. Starts off uninspiring but thick malt backbone grows on you. Nice beer.

Herforder Pils
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is straw, sweet malts, grassy hops. Taste is sweet, a bit earthy, straw, weak finish. Crisp carbonation. A bit pointless, but not horrible.

0,5l bottle from Beers of Europe. Very pale golden colour, small frothy white head. Some malts and hops in the aroma but also a bit sour, cardboardy. Malt and hops flavour but rather weak, nice but could have been better.

Herforder Pils
500ml bottle: BBD 9th July. Poured into an old Schlossbrau Pils stemmed glass (three times). This beer is an old friend. I used to buy packs of 10 x 33cl stumpy bottles when I lived in Germany: bright yellow carrying boxes known as Herfy Handbags by all the Royal Air Force lads back then. Anyway back to today: mown the lawn, reward this! Pours the regular clean golden yellow you’d expect from a Lager/Pilsner, the white head hung around though, so makes a change, as they normally fade swiftly on this style of beer in my opinion. Dry compared to most German Pilsners but with the same crispness and cleanliness you’ll get from them all. Not a big aromatic or flavoursome beer, just refreshing and thirst quenching. No serious sense provoking subtleties or hidden quirks but a solid, no nonsense beer.

Herforder Export
0,33 l bottle. Pours out in a mid golden, mighty white foamy head. Mash, malt and grain with sweetness on the nose. Boring taste, little bit grainy, citrus sweetness, grassy, but nothing that can convince.

Herforder Pils
On tap @ Zum Kachelofen, Hahnenklee. Pours clear golden with rocky but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of yeast and malt and rather persistent touches of metal. Estery aftertaste with bitter and cardboardlike hints. Low carbonation. Rather watery. Nothing to write home about.

Herforder Pils
Can at home, present from my mates Hardy and Elsa. Pours yellow, clear, with a thick head. Aroma of some grass and hay, bready. Sweet taste -- too sweet for me. Finish has some bitterness. Taste does not last very long, this is a pretty boring, flat beer.

Herforder Grapefruit
* Süßlich-und leicht künstliches Bier. Die Grapefruit-Limonade macht einen unrunden Eindruck und passt sich nicht optimal in das Gesamtbild ein. Fruchtig-leicht herber Nachgeschmack mit einer limonadig-dominierenden Süße.

* Old rating. 0,33l, best before 01.2007. Malzig-trockener Antrunk. Erstaunlich deutlich zeichnen sich trockene Röstmalzaromen ab, eine muffige Herbe im Hintergrund passt sich ein. Der Nachgeschmack ist angenehm trocken-malzig, nette Röstmalzaromen mit moderater Herbe.

Herforder Mild Plus
* Old rating, 0,33l, best before 03.2007. Mild-süßliches Bier. In Hauptteil kommt zu der getreidigen Süße eine leicht herb-muffige Note, die aber nicht zu dominierend wirkt. Der Nachegschmack ist mittellang, süßlich-flach und muffig-herb, aber alles sehr moderat, aber irgendwie unrund.

Herforder Alkoholfrei
330ml bottle. Clear, pale yellow-ish, pale golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Typical sweet-ish, strawy Low Alcohol aroma, mash-like pre-stage of a beer. Taste is watery, strawy, minimally grassy hoppy. I still wonder how it was possible to extract anything from an already measly base product.

Herforder Pils
Die Farbe ist schon appetitlich bis hin zu schön, auch die Schaumkrone ist etwas porös aber akzeptabel. Einstieg ist frisch und herb zugleich, so muss Pils sein. Dieses Pils hat einen runden Gewürzcharakter und auch eine gute Süffigkeit. Was will man mehr in einem Pils, Dieses Bier überzeugt trotz der weiten Distribution.

Herforder Landbier
330ml bottle. Clear chestnut colour with average to huge, forthy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Aroma has a spicy, yeasty touch of hay, bready, grainy caramel background. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, slightly bready, dry grassy hoppy overtones. Redundant expansion of Herforder’s portfolio.

Herforder Pils
Premium lager with cream white, thick, relatively stable foam and bright straw blonde colour with golden hue. Pale malts aroma, clean with a lightly spicy hop touch, bit citrussy. Smooth in the mouth, mineral-like, clean and crisp, pale malt sweetishness, whiff of herbal hop bitterness in the tail. Correctly made but predictable.

33cl bb11/2014, idiosynkrasie’s locals for locals, danke! Dark Landbier/light Dunkel with very shy aromatics indeed: virtually no nose, weakly caramalty, strange chestnut peel bitterness in stark contrast with soggy mf. Probably not the hidden pride of Westfalia.

Herforder Pils
0.5L bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Mild aroma of grass and sweet malt. Really not much flavor initially or in the middle, this gives way to herby hop, as would be expected for a pils Overall, a pretty crappy beer. Just a standard, German pils without much character at all.

Wie befürchtet kommt es relativ dünn daher mit etwas Kaffee und Röstung im Aroma. Leicht herb zum Schluss und wenn man ehrlich ist, beinahe geschmacklos. Das war nix.

Bottle. Deep black, brown head. Smells a bit metallic, a bit roasty, toffee aromas as well. Taste is very dry, heavy bitterness, metallic aftertaste. Carbonation is rather fizzy for a Schwarzbier. Hopped too much for my taste,

Catch up rating. Had on tap in northern Germany. The color is pale golden yellow, with a one finger head that quickly becomes half finger. Aroma is of malts, a slighty grassy. Nice bitter taste, with a slighty more bitter aftertaste. Medium thickness on the body. Overall, quite good, slighty above your average pilsener.

Klasyczny niemiecki pils. Nic specjalnego. Etykieta i smak kojarzy mi się z piwami warzonymi dla niemieckich dyskontów. Ale piłem lepsze.

(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber to brown colour with a mid-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Slightly doughy and nutty cara-malty aroma with a tinge of metal. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly toasted malty taste with caramel, nutty notes and a herbal hoppy touch; rather dry and moderately hop bitter finish. Likeable. 22.IV.13

Pours out of the bottle in a hazy dark golden-amber colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of straw and barley. Taste of mild hops, dusty straw, nuts, light malt, bread and barley. Dusty finish with some sweetish hints. Not that nice, not that bad - just an average beer.

Erstaunlich wundervoll für ein nicht Craftbier, das hier mit Gewürzen nur so spielt. Leicht pfeffrig, mit einer guten Portion Malz und dazu noch Zimt im Abschluss. Angenehm in der Textur, in der Farbe, aber auch in Aroma und Geschmack. Nette Überraschung.

The beer starts malty-sweet. Very sweet. The mainpart is dominated by the sweetness, a bit sharp, a bit bitter. The aftertaste is long, sweet-malty, slightly bitter but somehow unround.
--> Not one of the better Maiböcke.
