Sturgess (173) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Not liking german beers very much...this was subpar even by my standards. The smell was a little bit repulsive, but the taste made up for it slightly.

Average, run of the mill beer. Sub-par by German standards.

Clear gold with clean malt nose, and clean taste but doesn’t stand out

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2002
Initially smelled like ass, but that faded. Not very impressive, quite boring. I think this is the beer for people to buy who want "German" beer but don’t really want to explore other styles.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Very pale, thinnish looking, little fast-dying head. Aroma kinda skunky, despite brown bottle. Flavor is fresher, but pretty bland on the whole, with bitterness only entering at the end. Below average pils for sure; I once had a terribly old bottle of this, years ago when my then-girlfriend and I were still on a mainstream German lager kick, and I think it helped me move on to a higher level (my next purchase I believe was Mackeson XXX). Fresher, this beer is not much better than what I remember, but thanks Warsteiner for helping me to find beers better than you!

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2003 Whoever tells me that this is a typical pilsener is pretty clueless. It"s more a lager beer. Pale yellow color, good head. Honey nose. Little malty body with nice spices. Aftertast nicley honeysweet with a grassy hint. If you don"t like a true german pilsener this is your choice, at least in Germany.

I seem to remember this beer being better. Or maybe my tastes have just changed. I found the flavor light this go around and generally unremarkable.

Crisp, clean german beer. An all right beer, nothing special though.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Blonde with a fluff head and having an almost wheaty aroma with delicate pockets of malt. Clean crisp pilsner taste and well balanced. One of the better german pilsners I have tried--but still not a fan.
