3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 9/13/11
Aroma: The nose is german malts, grass, cereal, and a little floral hops
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a fizzy white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced betweem the crisp, cereal malts and floral hops
Palate: The body is light and crisp with a fairly clean mouthfeel and lively carbonation
Honestly, I didn’t think this was a bad pilsner at all. It had a pretty decent flavor, it was on style, and it had a crisp and clean mouthfeel. It’s fairly simple, and not particularly interesting, but it works for what it is trying to be, so I’d drink this one again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with only very gentle bubbles and a nice fluffy head. The nose is quite shandy-ish with notes of sweet malt and lemon. The taste has sweet pale malt and lemon again. The palate is medium bodied with a nice tangy texture and a fresh finish. Overall, not a typical German Pilsen in my opinion but well made.

On Tap at Hamiltons Tavern in SD. Solid Pilsner with a very nice hop note. Just a very clean beer

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
If sudzy is trying to imitate that flavor of pilsners from the old country, they did it. Everything from the slight veggie aroma to the pilsner bitter bite. Not terribly over the top.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Palest of yellow pours, small white head. Very corny, grainy aroma. Flavor is loaded with creamed corn, spent grain, and barely a hop note. This is overrated.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright yellow in the pils glass. Aroma is muted but this is a nice crisp pilsner. Grain taste lingers in the back. Super easy to drink. A good take on a hard style to get right.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at the Pizza Port bottle shop in Carlsbad, California. Pour is a clear light yellow soft golden with a 1 1/2 inch pure white head. The head falls with thick bubbles. Aroma is fresh cereal grain, along with light floral and nice grass in the back. Taste is cracked cereal grain, followed close behind by the floral grassiness, which has some sharpness to it. Finishes with earthy mineral floral yeast. Palate is light bodied, though has a nice less filtered weight to it. Dry clean gypsum finish. Nice clean easy drinking Pils.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is bready/grainy with some sweet corn and some grassy, noble hops. The flavor is pretty big with a full body and some bread and corn. Strong noble hop presence offsets the sweetness. The finish is nice with some earthy bitterness and a touch of sulfer. Overall, a nice flavorful pils that’s just a little too sweet for my tastes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pale yellow with active carbonation and decent head. Aroma is typical of the style, but there seems to be a touch of nut in the aroma as well. Mouthfeel is smooth. Taste is malt forward with the earthy bitterness of a bohemian pilsener. Sweeter than most.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a decent pils, but not outstanding. Crisp but not a real distinctive to the flavor otherwise. Still, impressed with Sudwerk.
