Love the aroma of roasted barley in this. Dark, rich amber color. Taste of barley not bad, but a little lighter taste than expected. Slight bitter finish. Would pair perfect with brats and other German meats.

On tap (several ’samples’).
Amazing I haven’t rated this beer before given that it was a staple in my beer supply last century before the coming of the craft beer revolution.
With a clear mahogany body and a decent head this is not only good looking, but good tasting as well. That’s a little reassuring given my history with this beer even though, to be honest, this was heavily influenced by price back in the day.
Plenty of toffee and medium malt with enough hops to give this a fairly neutral bitter-sweet balance.
Some darker malts too and just a hint of smoke.

Botella. Dorada. Aroma cereal. En boca resulta refrescante pero con un toque amargo más marcado de lo normal. Bien. Poco más.

Rated based on notes taken 29 Sep 2012 -- Ahhh this brings me back to college. I used to drink Warsteiner all the time! A decent German example of a Dunkel. There’s better out there, but this one will do.

Pours a yellow colour no head or lacing. Slight malty aroma. Light malt taste with a little citrus hop taste. It’s OK, as a lawn mower beer.

Pours dark red to brown with a white head. Aromas of malt and caramel. Taste is slightly complex with taste of the same with, toast, vanilla. Nice lager nothing special but worth a buck for a 16 oz can.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nothing flashy here, but a solid dark lager, one that the States just can’t seem to get right. Chestnut color with thin white head. Smooth caramel/toffee malt light bodied, a bit nutty, faint floral hops. Refreshing for a dark beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can, poured into a mug at ~40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a clear hickory brown, and forms a thick, fluffy head of pale off-white foam with good retention. Lacing is decent.
Smell: Bread, mild toffee, and something vaguely floral waft out of the glass.
Taste: See "Smell". The taste opens with bread and mild toffee, with hints of faint light caramel. That is joined by some floral and spicy notes as the beer moves along, and the aftertaste is a lingering mix of all of the above.
Mouthfeel: Thin and light-bodied, without ever quite getting all the way to watery.
Overall: A decent Munich dunkel, especially for the price point I paid for this batch of $1 per half-liter!
