Fatehunter (1468) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a finger and a half of white head. Lots of bubbles visible. Head collapsed but left good lacing. I should have poured this into a Pilsener glass. Smells like freshly milled barley with the slightest bit of citrus. First a "nothing" taste... water, followed by a dry, bitter taste. That’s all there is to it. Clean texture, not nearly as carbonated as it looks and a light body. I used to think German Pilseners were uncomfortably bitter, but this one tastes pleaseant enough. Maybe after the assault my tongue took from imperial IPAs, this seems a lot more toned down. Either way, it’s a one trick pony in taste and smell, but it looks beautiful. The best way to drink this is in Germany on a cobblestone street side table in the proper glass. Spend an afternoon watching the world go by.

Pours a clear golden liquid with a very frothy white head. Aroma of roasty malt, hops and some spruce. Tastes watery with medium bitterness of hops and malt and a bitter finish. Smell and taste are both somewhat grainy and earthy, but still have a sweet freshness to it. Medium body, creamy texture, not too carbonated for a Pilsener. This is a pretty average German Pilsener with a nice flavour to it.

Solid enough pils that gets the job done when there aren’t many other choices. I’ve had better.

First beer I’ve ever had. Many later and I still know that this beer bests any other. Germans make the best beer, period.

Draft and I have had warsteiner before a pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma of a typical German lager. But for me pretty bland all the way around not bad but definitely not very good and I am going to leave it at that

nihtila (1016) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
13.2.2014. 4.7%. Tuoksu lagerille tyypillinen mieto, hieman metallinen ja viljainen. Maku viljainen, lievän maltainen. Aika peruslagerihan tämä on, jos ehkä mallas maistuu hieman suomalaisveljiä enemmän. Saunakaljatavaraa ja sellaisena hyvä.

Aggiebob (113) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle: Clear golden yellow with a small white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is wet hay with a balanced taste. There is average carbonation for a pilsner with a clean texture and just a hint of a bitter finish.

Bottle (shared with friends). Golden color. Bitter. No so much experience in pilseners to appreciate.

A me sembra una lager, sull'etichetta scrivono premium pilsner... Mmm di pilsner forse ha un po' di beverinità. Ma del resto proprio nulla niente erbaceo luppoloso e zero equilibrio. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85
