Thanks to only the best ingredients this dark refreshes like a true lager beer. It has a rich smooth taste and a lingering slightly sweet aftertaste. The delicate aroma and extraordinary coloration result from a careful barley malt roasting process.nnThe roasted malt for our beer is manufactured from top-quality brewing barley cultivated from well-known German producing regions and from Champagne, which enjoy optimal climatic and soil conditions.nnThe dark, amber color of WARSTEINER Dunkel beer is obtained thanks to none other than the finest ingredients and an especially gentle, careful brewing process.nnAnother top-quality attribute is the original and especially soft brewing water. This is obtained from the Kaiserquelle, among other sources.nnAlbert Cramer Senior discovered the Kaiserquelle (Kaisers Spring) at the edge of the Arnsberg Forest, close to the Waldpark brewery of today. With a water hardness of only one to two degrees, the water is especially suitable for brewing beer and contributes to the beers wholesomeness. The Kaiserquelles soft water, which still to this day feeds the Warsteiner Brewerys water tanks, was crucial for the huge success of Warsteiner Pilsener, which was brewed from 1927 following the registration of water rights.
