ineedbeer (888) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is grainy with a touch of sulfur and some light corn notes. A hint of a herbal hop aroma. The aroma is fairly clean but there is some light fruitiness as well. Pours a super clear yellow-gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. Decent lacing and medium legs. Flavor starts with slightly sweet malt notes - grainy with some corn to it. A low floral hop flavor is also present as well as a light sulfur note. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Crisp, medium light body with medium carbonation. Low hop astringency and no alcohol warmth. Overall this beer isn't impressive but it is clean and to style. I may be imagining it but there seems to be some light esters in the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

puredelusion (42) - Lviv, UKRAINE - DEC 21, 2014
0,33 bottle. Pours clean straw colour with high white head. Hops, litlle bit of apples, grass in aroma. Lively carbonation, light body. Taste is medium sweet and sone light bitterness, dry, with some metallic notes in the finish. Well-rounded, but I’d say that it’s even not enough bitter as for the pilsener. Well drinkable, but nothing too exciting.

rotaman14 (166) - Potsdam, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2014
Blassgolden, weisse Schaumkrone. Riecht nach Gräsern, Erde, Stroh. Dezent bitter, leicht wässrig. Ist für den Stil und den Preis aber vollkommen OK.

WillemsUrenkel (646) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Redesigned label. Pale golden and very clear in the glass, nearly watery. Longlasting white head. Mash and grain on the nose. Starts grainy, later a little bit bitter. Polished. Typical industrial german Pilsener. Not really bad but also nothing real special.

Cimbasso (249) - - DEC 10, 2014
Sampled from a 50 cl bottle. Bright golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of malts. The taste is bready malts which gives away to an assertive, grassy bitterness. A good, fairly typical, pilsner with quite a bitter flavour.

Vladivostok (273) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Typical pilsener colour with an aroma of fresh hay. Little flavour beyond the bitterness imparted by a reasonably generous dose of hops. Quite a pleasant palate and a reasonably long finish for a pilsener. A cut above most domestic UK lagers but my tastes lean towards something with a tad more oomph.

Moravius (599) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) aus einem beliebigen Berliner Supermarkt. - Goldgelb, klar. - Strenger Geruch nach herbem Billighopfen. - Antrunk schlank mit grobschlächtigen Hopfennoten: Zitronenschale, Laub, Waschpulver. Durchschnittlich rezent, hart im Mund; keine Spur von Malzaromen. Im Abgang trocken mit schroffer Zitronenschale. Recht kurzer, mäßig bitterer, aromaleerer, schwach salziger Nachtrunk. - Billig gemachtes Supermarktbier, hochvergoren, ohne Malzkörper, derb gehopft und ohne jegliche feinere Aromen. - Zusätzlichen Punktabzug gibt’s für den neuen Schriftzug, der wohl von typographischen Analphabeten entworfen wurde: das frühere, korrekte lange s (Warſteiner) wurde durch ein Schluß-s ersetzt (Wars-teiner) und dafür ein albernes überlanges t eingefügt. Anscheinend kann man in Warstein nicht nur kein Bier brauen, sondern auch kein Deutsch mehr ...
