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 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.

Bottle. Poured with a half finger head. Body is a very clear, almost watery yellow color. Nice bitter flavor, tastes very average for the style. Easily notable bubbly flavor, over carbonated? I think so.

Nice malty flavor balanced with hop bitterness. Hop aroma is good. Great beer!

Light in color and aroma with a grassy nose. Malt and yeast dominate the flavor profile with just a hint of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light colour of gold. Nice bitter style aftertaste I think it could be a little less carbonated. It’s a good beer.

I tried all 4 of the Sudwerk beers on tap and I found this one to be the worst. No smell, high carbonation, very bitter. Not their best offering.

Golden yellow body with small white head. Flavor is unspectacular with fizzy carbonation. Finish is somewhat flat and buttery.

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.

This is one of the finest German style pilsners available. If you can find it, buy it/ I have mainly drank it straight from the tap on site in Davis, Ca. I don't get into taste descriptors as everyones taste is slightly different.

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