The Warsteiners I have sampled always seem to me to be complex tasting beers that appear to have a much higher alcohol content than they actually have. I find them enjoyable, but in small doses, otherwise they can lie pretty rough in the stomach and in the head! This brew poured a dark brown color (as expected) with a decent head that didn’t last long. Plenty of bitterness and really rather drier than I was expecting. Not a beer to drink a lot of in my opnion, it seems to be too “alcoholy” to be quoffed. I can’t put my finger on it, but this beer seems much stronger than it actually is.
