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.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of grain, corn, and a hint of hops. Poured pale yellow in color with a small, white head that lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of grain, corn, and some hops. Light body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt and hop finish is lightly bitter.

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
Overall Impression: 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.

AshtonMcCobb (4072) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2011
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

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.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2011
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.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - JUN 25, 2011
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.

theisti (3503) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
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.

jsmerig (1357) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2011
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.

This is a decent pils, but not outstanding. Crisp but not a real distinctive to the flavor otherwise. Still, impressed with Sudwerk.
