Warsteiner Dunkel

Postby turbo_ale » Mon Oct 28, 2013 4:58 pm

First time going to the famous Edelweiss German Restaurant in my city. They had an excellent German bier selection from draft to bottles. I surprised myself by ordering a large pitcher (four pints) of Warsteiner Dunkel for myself, never ordered that much in one sitting. Drank every last drop and was very pleased by the aroma, flavor, balance of the beer. Very dark brown with red hue, medium head, light aroma of malt, great lacing, typical Munich malt flavor, clean as a Lager should be, very easy to drink.

Food, wow, very impressed with what I had, the MÜNCHNER PLATTE - A combination plate of spiessbraten, bratwurst, rouladen, served with red cabbage, sauerkraut, spätzle & fried potatoes. $20.95

Dessert, another wow, German Chocolate cake. Needless to say after that super rich dessert I was ready to pop.

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.

I ran into an Old man at Trader Joe's who was buying all of the Warsteiner Dunkel six packs. I asked him if I could grab one and he told me that he had helped liberate the town where the brewery was during the war. He told me that his company was stationed there for a few weeks after and that he met his wife and favorite beer there.

Well, then I'd say that old soldier deserves them all!

I was a big fan of Angel City before they re-opened. They made some really interesting beers in those days. However, I will continue to follow their progress and will probably visit again soon.
