Notes: Also known as Warsteiner Premium Verum

A refreshing, pale golden pilsener with a clean taste perfectly balanced with hints of barley malt, subtle bottom fermenting yeast tones and mild hoppy bitterness.

Has that Heineken skunkiness, but it’s cheaper, and Warsteiner is a much cooler name for a beer. Being that it’s a German beer and I’m mostly made up of German heritage, I’d rather grab a 12pk of this one over Heineken.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by July 2023.

Pale golden body, small white head. Not much of an aroma. Taste pretty basic, but clean. A little thinner in the mouth.

I don't know why this has been rated as low as it has been. Not a horrible beer. Decent pilsner that is very easy drinking. Low ABV make this very much a lawn mower beer that can be chugged quickly to cool off from the sweltering summer heat!

Poured out of a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Look - (4.5) Absolutely beautiful beer. Golden, transparent, and effervescent. Champagne-like flow of bubbles. I could watch it for hours. The small 1/2 inch head dissipated quickly with minimal lacing.

Smell - (3) I think the bottle I got was just a little skunked. Not overwhelming, but not a particularly fun first impression. Beyond the skunkiness, I detected hops bitterness, toasted bread, and a touch of citrus.

Thankfully, as the beer warmed, the smell became much less noticeable.

Taste - (4) Clean and refreshing. Easy to drink. Starts off bready and grows gradually toastier. Malty in the middle with a bitter hops finish. Aftertaste is dry and walnut-y.

I let it warm a little and it grew hoppier and a subtle honey-sweetness came forward.

Feel - (4) Super drinkable! Just enough carbonation to clean the pallet. Dried my mouth out pleasantly just a little at the end.

Overall - (4) While I don't think this is the beer for me, but it was super fun to try! The more I drank, the more I enjoyed it. I could see it really growing on me.

I love a good clean pilsener more than anything, and this is one of the best. It’s a nice golden color, has a lovely hoppy smell and just the right amount of bite. I first drank it on a Paris-Warsaw train ride thirty years ago after buying a can in Aachen, and I have loved it ever since. They’ve been selling it in 24-packs at my local Costco, and I go through them pretty fast.

This beer is pretty basic, but it mixes well with Guinness Draught for a perfect black and tan!

For some reason I find German pilseners to be the perfect quaff. No rice no corn just clean as hell. Was finding 24 packs for the same price as domestics until I mentioned it to the cashier and lo and behold they corrected the mistake . But seriously this is my favorite everyday beer. I think bitburger is better but only xea in 4 or 6 packs
. Cheers.

Pronounced “vash-stien-ah” according to a video I saw. Clear golden and smells like malt. Tastes earthy and has a sweet floral flavor that is quickly replaced by a bitter finish, and this back and forth taste appeals to me.
