3/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours pale yellow with a fluffy white head that holds good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas and tastes are similar: pilsner malt, sweet, grassy, finishes with a moderate sharp hop bite. Mouth-feel is rather thin with plenty of carbonation. Overall, it's obviously a German Pilsner, but there are better ones out there for the style = pretty average across the board.

3.63/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dated 11/21/14.

Appearance: Perfectly clear straw color with a fluffy white half-finger of head. Looks like any other beer of the style.

Aroma: Touch of skunk even though it was in a brown bottle, possibly just a yeast ester that I'm interpreting as a skunky smell. Some dry breadyness and a little bit of sweet corn.

Taste: There is actually a decent amount of flavor in this thing, especially considering the somewhat low 4.8% ABV. It's not the usual bland adjunct flavor because Premium Verum is, as far as I can tell, not made with any adjuncts. Pilsen and Munich malts give a rounded grainy flavor that is akin to wheat bread. There is just the right amount of hop bitterness to create a great balance. Some grassy/hay hop flavor comes through in the finish and lingers with the malt in the aftertaste. In true pilsener fashion the finish is crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Thin in body with average carbonation for the style (meaning tons of effervescent bubbles attacking your palate). Great drinkability and easily sessionable.

Final Thoughts: Everyone's had at least one so-called pilsener in their life. Most of the mass produced beer on the market calls itself a pilsener but is in fact made with adjuncts. Hats off to Warsteiner for keeping things authentic with Premium Verum. Would I drink it again? Sure, there is a time and a place for this particular brew and it just so happens to be summertime now.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
