Bought a 6-pack of bottles at ALDI grocery store. Smelled a little skunky when I opened the bottle. Poured into regular pint glass, a clear, light golden color. Taste is pleasant with mild finish, not to dry. Not the greatest German beer I've had by far but is very drinkable.

Bitter, hoppy, almost like an ale. Super foamy head, a minute after opening the bottle the foam came up to the top, just short of spilling over. Light, easy to drink. Smells nothing special. For 6-7 dollars at my local Aldi for a 6-pack I'm not surprised or disappointed.

L- Pours a very white and bubbly head. Clear golden color looks like a macro brew commercial. Has slight lacing.
S- Not much going on, however its a German pilsner an smells accordingly.
T- Wow, nice suprise. Great tasting German pilsner. A nice hop bite with your German funk and keeps lingering. Very crisp, with some biscuit mid taste.
F- Wow. Crisp and refreshing. This would be a great beer to keep on hand to clense the palate. This would be a great lawnmower beer.
O- This blew my mind for a beer my wife found at Aldi's. Aldi is a German company, and they had other beer pretty cheap that I'm going to have to try...that is insane!

i believe this beer gets underrated. Granted it is not the best example of a German pils, but because it is easy to find at my local Aldi, only 6.00 a six pack, it makes it a go to beer for me. Pours clear golden color with a slight head, some lacing. It has an initial bite and slight bitterness on the back of tongue. But, it gets smoother the more you drink. (dont they all) Also, because it is not a high alcohol content, makes a decent session beer. Paired with a grilled smithfield pork sirloin, some spaetlze or some potato gnocchi and a spinach and tomato salad very nice. Good served ice cold on a hot day. (I know some people say germans drink beer "warm" this is absolutely false, they just dont chill beer as cold as americans. Brits drink beer a bit warmer.) Wernesgruner is nice beer for the price.
