I don't think Warsteiner is by any means the best, but it is great whilst grilling! I have had some Warsteiner that was better than some others (Maybe transport issues). I do like Bitburger and just had some Krombacher tonight for the first time.

Warsteiner is what got me into homebrewing. Last year, at the end of september into october 2011,my wife and I went to Cashmire Washington to visit her sister and family. While we were there, we went to the Octoberfest at Leavenworth, and enjoyed all it had, good food, good bands, and good beer. I loved the Warsteiner octoberfest, but my favorite was the Warsteiner dunkel, all on tap. Bought a Warsteiner liter mug to drink it in, and read on it, translated, life is to short for cheep beer, and agreed. Got back home and could not find any dunkel anywhere, though some stores did carry verum, I prefered dunkel. Doing internet searches came up on lots of homebrewing sites, such as this one, and the realization that, yes, I can do that. Have had a great time brewing and learning about brewing. And my wife says, of all my hobbies, she likes this one best. ---Mark F.---

Had some at my cousins place on the East Coast a few years ago. It was good, but that was before I discovered dark ales.

I seem to remember something on their label that went something like this

"Life is to short to drink cheap beer".
