Poured from a 500ml can.
Overall a nice clean crisp Pilsner, easy drinking cheap beer on a hot day.
$1.79 a can on sale in B.C. Canada a nice change between my hoppy IPA's

Wernesgruner Brewery's Pilsner. Brewed in Germany. 4.9% alc. 500ml can.

The beer has a thick white head that dissipates quickly.

The colour of the beer is a pale golden that is exceptionally clear. The ascending bubbles are quite substantial.

There is not much aroma and to me that's a bit disappointing. Some barley malt - a graininess -
and white bread, but overall it's faint.

The taste is barley malt, some sweetness, and very delicate hops.

The beer has a smoothness to it that's quite enjoyable. There is minimal carbonation.

Body is light to medium.

The finish is dry.

Overall, I found this a nice beer but there are more flavourful Pilsners available.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear light yellow. Head disappears quickly.

Smell is bready and malty with a hint of sweetness.

Taste is a bit sweet, bready and malty, with a nice dose of floral hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a godd, solid pilsner. Nothing to get worked up over, but a good beer.

I picked up my six pack at Aldi for around $6.50. Very good Pilsner for the price. If you like traditional German beer, this one will hit the spot. Straw in color and smell, dense foamy head, noble hop bitterness hits you on the first swig. Light to medium mouth feel. Average carbonation. If you like the Czech beer Pilsner Urquell, this is very comparable. In fact, I personally don't think I would be able to tell the two apart in a blind taste test. My German grandpa gives this pilsner a thumbs up. And he appreciates the light hit to the wallet. Prost!

Poured from a 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appeara ce is a clear golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is mild grains and hops. The taste is refreshing but very mild with a bitter finish.

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.
