Beer Review #20
Appearance: Pours with a small foamy head, that goes
down to a thin white ring. It is a nice pale
gold color. It has the usual beer smell with
a nice hint of citrus.
Taste: This was a unique one. The first sip I tasted the
citrus and then was smashed in the face with
bitterness, and then the bitterness faded and
the citrus returned. The next sip however the
bitterness wasn't there. Overal it was a sweet
beer with mild flavor.
Mouthfeel: It had a sharp but soft carbonation. The beer then showed a flash
of good flavor that fizzled to a crisp and dry finish.
Beer Type: German Pilsners are one of the oldest beer on the planet. The beer
itself is meant to be straw to gold in color, have a dense rich head,
with a spicy/floral aroma and flavor. German Pilsners are also meant
to be a bit course on the pallet with a flash of citrus and be very
bitter. Verum covers the flash of citrus, the color and the head,
but lacks the spicy floral or the bitterness. I do however like the
lack of bitterness.
Drinkability: I find this one a lot like big name domestic beer there is nothing
special about it. I did find it was better part way through the beer.
Its price is reasonable to let you drink 1 or many.
Scoring: 17/25 It is an alright beer. Nothing super special,but not too out there for
less adventurous type.
