Over the last couple of weeks my family and I have been having a dinner night with some of our friends, on a weekly basis. We set up a night, usually a Friday or Saturday, and have a dinner together. The cuisine various and has been something different every time but each an every time it is something that is very delicious. This weekend we decided to make shrimp tacos. So while the wife was at work, I went to the store and gathered up all of the ingredients that we would need in order to prepare our meal. Once I had found everything that I needed  I went to the beer section to try and find a beer that I thought would go good with the shrimp tacos that we were having. That’s when I came across a beer that comes from a German Brewery that dates back to 1753. The beer is a beer from the Warsteiner Brewery and is the Warsteiner Premium Verum. The beer is a German Pilsner that is brewed with water from the Ansberg Forest. You may ask, what is so special about that. Well, according to the sites that I have looked at this water is considered to be extra soft water. This is important because the higher quality of water that you use in the brewing process, the better beer you will have in the end, well when it comes to professional brewers any way. If I were to  brew a batch at this point, I don’t think it would make any difference, it would still be catastrophic.

The Premium Verum is considered to be  German Pilsener that contain 4.8%ABV. That will pour to a pale golden yellow. This beer will have a modest head but it will dissipate rather quickly.When you pour this beer you will also notice the expected aromas of a pilsener. You will smell the sweet malts and the floral of the hops. When you take your first sip of this beer you will notice the hints of citrus and the malts. You will taste the hops and the bitterness that goes along with the hops. Then when you finish the sip you are left with a unique taste, I would contribute this to the types of hops that this beer is brewed with.  This beer is the only beer that I have tasted with this after tone to it.

When u are pairing this beer you will want to pair this beer with food of an Asian or German Style but it also goes well with any poultry or fish. If you are looking to pair it with cheese your best options are Monterrey or pepper jack cheese. It is recommended that you serve this beer between 40 and 45 degrees.
