This is a pilsner. It is what a pilsner is meant to be. From one of the oldest breweries in the world, this beer is good. The hops will punch you in the face because you aren't expecting them. Once you get over that shock, you start thinking wow this is definitely what I want to drink from here on out.

11.2 oz bottle BB 12/15/17 poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temp. Pours bright and pale straw color. One inch of white head persists for a while and fades away leaving minimal lacing. Smell is slightly sweet with grass and lemon predominant. Taste follows with pils malt, then grass & lemon, finishing with balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is mostly dry and sharply carbonated. Overall, great value for $6/6pk and very tasty. You can pay a lot more for this style and probably couldn't tell in a blind tasting.

Wernesgruner pils legend from Wernesgrüner Brauerei bought a 4 packs for 7,99$

Look: Yellow clear color. Lots of carbonation and lots of bubble going up quikly. About 2 finger of white head. Very nice looking beer.

Smell: Grassy hops.

Taste: The hop is very present. Very soft, the sweetness is there. The bitterness is there on the front of your tongue.

Feel: Light to medium body. Very soft. on the watery side. I enjoyed this beer.

So overall would I recommend it ? Absolutely, I really liked it for my side and I think this beer is under rated.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. Watery, with a strong and grassy hoppyness like in a Cruzcampo. A bit better than a Cruzcampo, probably because the lack of adjuncts, but its slight higher quality doesnt justify paying a higher price for it. Nearly no foam and dissapearing quickly. BB Date in 6 months.

Taste like a comon beer of its kind , no real distinction.
Would love to right a long review but it ends here.

A real nice clear beer with a SRM of about 2. The look of this beer is very clear.

The smell is very low, and the taste is like all the commercial beer found in every liquor store.

The bitterness is more pronounced in this one than other commercial beer.

The IBU would be about 15, and you'll have to pay 2.95 $ (cad) for a 500 ml can.

Clear straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with a good amount of lacing. Flavors of biscuit and bread, sweet grains, slightly metallic, noble hops, very faint skunk. A little sweet with some sharpness. Slick full body with subtle crispy carbonation. Light finish, lingering grassy hoppy feel, with fresh malty notes, and faint lemon. A little faint, but for a pils its well intensified. The finish is pretty nice. Well balanced taste, no corn or adjunct feel, nor unpleasantly skunky. Very fresh and pleasing to drink. Overall good quality craft.

Excited at finding a few outstanding beers at Aldi's, this popped my balloon.

Poured gently into a pint glass.

L = straw yellow, almost no head but typical Pils white, minimal rimming. Nothing like you'd find on a nice luscious Czech Pils or a Warsteiner, which seems to be what this beer alludes to.

S = minimal scent when opened although it smells slightly like skunking, or maybe that's just its traits. Nice malts begin to emerge, then some mild banana. Hints of noble hops.

T = slightly sour and minimally bitter. The sour taste is really off-putting. The bitters seem a bit more than a traditional Pils should have, too. Slight sweetness emerges, and some biscuit. Then grassy finish.

F = feels like they missed the mark on this "imported from Germany" beer.

O = The bottle lists a website that turns out to be "for sale" and pulls up a Budweiser link, which may or may not have anything to do with this beer. Aldi sells this for $5.99 per 6-pack and I would rather put the money into a case of Warsteiner, or better yet a Paulaner et al.
