COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Sudwerk Pilsner.

A Northern German-style Pilsner brewed in Northern California. Our pilsner is brewed entirely with pale two-row Weyermann, true to the style. A special blend of Bavarian Hallertauer and Tettnanger hops are used during brewing, adding to the sharp finish. Winner of the coveted “Brewers Choice” award for 25 consecutive years and counting.

bhensonb (10805) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle at the Yolo Beer Fest. Pours pale gold with a white head. Iight citrusy aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is bready with light noble hop. Finishes decently bitter.
Earlier Rating: 5/20/2007 Total Score: 2.8
Very light aroma. Seems a bit fishy, but that makes no sense. LIght brassy color with a white head that tries to lace. Medium bodied, the carbonation renders it a bit chewy, and the hop is appropriate for a pilsener. The finish is lightly bitter, and not so dry as might be desireable. Pilsener it is, but Pilsener Urquell it is not. Decent brew.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Clear golden pour with a finger of white head. Sweet and grainy nose, but some decent malt aroma of bread and dough. Light floral and spicy hops, yeast, and a touch of grass. The flavor is a bit simple and sweet. Quite grainy. As with the nose, some malt flavor and body. Very lightly hopped with just a light floral quality. No real bitterness, some mild apple esters, and a little grass on the finish.
