Wernecker Haustrunk Pils (4.8 % alcohol): Bottled in a 500 mL swing-top bottle, this pilsner, brewed by Wernecker Bierbrauerei in Werneck, Germany, pours a golden-orange with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly leaving behind minimal lacing. The mild aroma made up of grass, hay, toasted malt, caramel and a bit of hops is simple and inviting. Sweet malt entices the palate followed by earthy hops and a mildly bitter finish to round it out. Wernecker Haustrunk Pils is an enjoyable, uncomplicated pilsner that I can appreciate.
Note: Wernecker Haustrunk Pils is one of the spoils of my recent trip to Germany. This is the first beer I sampled from my shipment, and mm-mm is it tasty!
