Warsteiner Premium Verum
This is another available-on-PEI beer that I have had before, but never officially reviewed. The first time I had it, I thought it was decent.
It has just a small, fast-dropping head, which reduces to nearly nothing then absolutely gone within minutes. The lacing is just the odd bubble spot. The colour is a crystal clear pale yellow.
In the smell is bread, and just a tad of that "Euro-lager skunky smell" right when I opened the can, and a bit of corn, I think.
The taste is a bit of honey and grain at first. I seem to get some corn or rice out of it... it tastes a bit flat and cheap as the glass wears on.
I find the carbonation a bit sharp / aggressive. It's still refreshing and crisp, and not too watery. The finish is dry.
Overall, it's an average beer that would best suit a hot day, when you're just looking for something to wet your whistle.
