From notes.

A - Poured light golden with one finger of soapy white head. Medium carbonation and bright. Minimal spotty lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Skunk, lemon, sweet malt, herbal hop, honey.

T - Crackery malt, skunk, hops, grass, noble hops, herbal, lemon.

M - Strong carbonation, light body, and a light dryness with some noble hop.

O/D - Not a bad version of the style. Herbal hop note was pleasant. Easy drinking. A subtle but enjoyable Pils with typical flavours that I could have a few of.

Picked up this brew at Aldi's a great new neighborhood food store that has prices that blow the other supermarkets into the weeds, let's give it a whirl. Poppingthe top I get a nice full bottle with a malty and barley malt smell. No adjuncts here. On the pour into my SAPP I get a clear lightly golden color with a thick foamy two finger head. On the taste this brew is delightfully crisp and clean with a nice sharp hoppiness that is semi bitter right along side a sweet maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin but that is the norm for this style so no down-grade. Very refreshing and a great brew for a hot summer day. I would buy again.

Poured from a 500 ml Can into a Wernesgruner German beer mug.

It appears a very nice clear yellow/golden straw colour with some thin white head on top. The effervescence is quite apparent after the pour.

Fresh cut grass, slight floral scent, maybe some hints of citrus and malt.

Very crisp tasting, hops come through the most for me up front, also some sweet honey taste with some malt in the background, ends on a lemon-citrus note. Extremely well balanced.

Definitely a clean and crisp mouth feel, lot's of carbonation as well, but not too much. Very refreshing.

This is a really great German Pils, especially for the price (8.99$ Canadian for a 4 Can Pack). It is pretty similar to Bitburger, but I would say the difference being that Wernesgruner is more hops oriented and Bitburger is more malt oriented. I think the thing that impresses me most with this beer is how well balanced it is. Definitely a great session brew, especially in the summer time as it's very refreshing but also full of flavour.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type - 500ml can, poured into a pilsner glass

Appearance - Pours a very pale straw colour. The filtered beer shows some serious carbonation. There is a surprisingly frothy white head that leaves behind a mild amount of lacing.

Smell - Not much of a nose on this one. Whats there is grainy and grassy, with a slightly off-putting metallic smell.

Taste - Grainy for certain, and sort of 'doughy'. There's also an un-pilsner like hop kick towards the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty high carbonation, not unusual for the style. Leaves a crisp, lingering finish.

Overal - 3/5. Sidenote: Yes, it's far from the best pilsner, but at least where I'm from (Ontario) it's one of the best for the price (currently $2.05 for a 500ml can - not shabby at all).
