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.

Pours out golden with thin 2 finger head. Grassy hop aroma with slight malt. Taste is refreshing with some dry grassy/floral hops with a malt balance. Nice beer for a warm summer day.

I was first introduced to this beer a couple of years ago while staying at Marine’s Memorial hotel in San Francisco, where it was labeled Leatherneck. It’s quickly become one of my favorites! I enjoy it because it’s rather strong for a Pilsner. It has a clean, crisp, refreshing taste, and goes well with pork or beef.

DocLock (9504) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Thanks to the wife for this one. Pours pale gold with smallish white head. Aroma of pale malt, grainy hops, some honey. Tastes pale malty, hoppy, with slight honey and peach flavors. Not bad at all.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 25, 2006
On draft. Pours a clear golden with a well formed white head but very little effervescents. The aroma is spice and grass, light biscuity malts. Body is med. light with very low CO2 for the style. The flavors are on the hoppier side; again spice and grass. The finish is dry but shows a great deal of oxidation. I would like to try this bottled.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2006
12oz. bottle. Pale yellow-gold color with a medium sized rocky white head. Grainy aromatics with tinges of spicy vegetal hops. Bitter, spicy hop nose gives way to a grainy, somewhat husky malt flavor. Clean, crisp profile in the finish is marred slightly by a stale bread element. Mouthfeel is light, fairly dry.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber yellow with a bubbly head and much carbonation. Head reduces as carbonation exits. Smells a bit chemically with lots of fragrance. First sip awfully bitter but in a good way; goes down real easy. Very light on the palate. Nice and smooth overall. Refreshing.

DYCSoccer17 (3603) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
.3L on tap at the brewpub. Crisp, grassy, vegetal-like nose with a mild doughiness present. Fair enough. Transparent blonde color with a large, frothy, whitish head and lots of lacing. Crisp, slightly spicy and grassy hoppiness to start. Middle has an interesting astringency to it with a bit of breadiness. Mild spiced hops make their presence again in the finish. A nice and refreshing beer.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottled. Pours a medium golden color. Slightly creamy grain aroma. Slightly bitter and malty. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Slightly sweet with some hops and grains. Slightly grassy flavor. Bitter finish. Good pils.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAY 13, 2006
12oz bottle poured a bright golden color with a thin white head. Subtle hop aroma with a bit of citrus in the nose. Flavor is pretty mild, but not bad for a pilsner. Lagunitas Pils is still my fav but this was not bad. Good crisp, fresh aftertaste, I hope to try it at the brewery someday.
