Wernesgrüner Pils Legende

This yellow-gold pilsner hails from Wernesgrüner, Germany, where it is brewed by the Wernesgrüner Brauerei. It contains 4.9% alcohol and is sold in 500mL cans.The can tells me that this feisty little pilsner was brewed with "crystal clear water from the Nature Park Eregebirge-Vogtland." It pours with considerable carbonation and a fluffy white head.
Like a good German Pilsner, Wernesgrüner's aroma is characterized by notes of grain and freshly mowed grass. It smells clean and refreshing. It has a slightly watery mouthfeel, but builds to a gratifyingly bitter aftertaste. Notes from the farmer's field are pervasive--wheat, grass, grain.

It's not a particularly robust pilsner, but it's admirably thirst quenching.  A fine pint to reach for on a hot afternoon.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
