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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
On tap. Pours with a clear yellow body and a quick to fade white head. Aromas of grain, grass, lemon and pilsner malt (it seems). Flavors are bready, cornbread, pilsner malt, grassy, light lemon and a touch of salinity. Dry and light. Medium carbonation. Good but bland. No noticeable mistakes, but it isn’t memorable nor assertive.

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.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Tap, Napa Valley Burger Co.,Sausalito, CA, 16/08/12. Excellent, dewy mown grass and shrub aroma. Palate has light sulphur; grass again, clean biscuit malt sweetness with a nice parting smack of hop. Bright and lacy. Really decent.

Draft. A little overcarbonated, but it's a good decent beer. There is a malt presence that's followed by a dry hop flavor, but I'd like to see just a few more hops in this one. It's good, it's clean, but it just lacks something to push it over the top.

12oz bottle pours crystal clear deep gold with thin near white head. The mild aroma offers up floral to spicy hops with mild sweet Pilsner like maltiness and a vague sort of earthiness in the background. The taste is pleasingly not overly sweet or overly floral. That works for me. I get sort of spicy to earthy to floral hop bitterness rimmed with some hop flavor and thin rings of sweet malts. The noble hop bitterness increases some into the finish. Alright. Another tasty lager from Sudwerk.

Pours golden with a rich off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied light malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. Refreshing.

On tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head and a standard pilsener aroma. There is a substantial light malt base with a clean lager flavor and subtle tasty hopping. Not bad for a pilsener.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Clear gold, gentle white head. Bready, but even moreso grainy aroma from an unsteady pilsner malt, hesitating between taking the lead through pure grain flavours or letting the perfumey, leafy and lemony. Light bodied, fairly bitter, but still relatively sweet.

Clear pale yellow color/ white head. Dusty pale malt, peppery aromas. Light to medium bodied. Lightly sweet honey, pale malt, salty flavors.

Little aroma and only a vague malt flavor. Made for the Bud drinkers I guess. Good light pils but without distinction.
