An admittedly overzealous pour of this 11.2 oz. can of Warsteiner "Premium German Beer" produces a straw-golden body of brew, which supports a thick snow-white head with plenty of staying power.
The nose is typical of German Pilseners: mild; slightly sweet; subtle hints of herbs and spices.
The first sip unfolds slowly on the palate. Sweet malts lead the way, but are quickly balanced by some mild aroma hops. Bitter hops emerge towards the end and are substantial enough to hold their own and keep the sweet malts from outstaying their welcome. Well-balanced.
As the mild carbonation suggested, this beer is light and crisp on the palate.
Warsteiner Premium isn't the kind of hoppy, dry pilsener that American breweries are putting out these days. Perhaps that explains why it is undervalued at BeerAdvocate.com. But it is a beautiful representation of the drinkable sophistication that typifies German beer. I'll be revisiting this one.

Very clear, pale yellow beer with large white foam. Head retention is very good.
Taste is light, with slight malt sweetness and a light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is moderately light and well carbonated. Clean finish.
At 4.8% it is a smooth, light lager. A great German summer beer.
