More Oktoberfest – Warsteiner

Went to dinner at Mirabell, around Kedzie and Addison last night.  A small German bar/restaurant, a little pricey, but serving some great food.  I won’t get into details about the service, but once we made our presence known it was good.  I tried Warsteiner Oktoberfest bier.  It was nice.  The bouquet is hoppy, maybe a tad rusty, but not offensive, and has a mildly sweet quality.  The brew is amber with a good persistent head.  The texture is smooth and creamy, and makes for a very quaffable beer.  There is a note of alcohol and hops in the finish.  Very good, and the first time I’ve seen this beer. 

Next time I’ll tell you about Gosser Dunkel.  Try to hold out.
