Very nice malty arom and rich dark color made me very excited about this beer. The taste however didnt live up to my hopes. It had some good maltieness but was somewhat sour and all in all rather plain. A decent but far from spectacular beer.

Decent, Michelob Dark-style beer from Germany. Actually this is what Mic Dark wants to be when it grows up. Smooth, not overpoweringly heavy like dark beers. It’s a dark beer for wussy-dark beer drinkers like myself.

Looks and smells great. If you don’t like tobacco aftertaste, though, then avoid this beer like the plague.

This is by far my favorite beer! The well-roasted barleys and fresh hops each keep a distinct taste in this beer, giving it a very flavorful, mildly bitter experience. A definite must!

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2003 One night after plenty of beer pong involving a keg of labatt blue light and a 30 of keystone ice, after they ran out, we switched to the warsteiner mini keg. Well it was better than the other beers thats for sure, and tasted great when i was wasted. A nice mix of malt and hops from what i can remember and not even too sweet. ill have to try again soon and rerate.
RERATE. Tried again. pleasant golden-brown beer. It is a tad sugary, but still a lot less mild than I expected and dosent kill you with cheap malty taste.

A very straightforward beer. Nothing exceptional about it. Clear yellow color, some foam. Has the same flavors most American Mega brews do, but is missing the aftertaste, which is a good thing.

Not very complex. Not very malty. In fact, not very flavourful. Not a favorite of mine. Still, better than all American, mass-produced lagers I have tried. If you want a German beer, try an Ayinger.
