2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Date on bottle says 04/01/03. Bought in a cheap liquor store in downtown Reno (that also still had 03 Celebration). Small floaties and a pale gold color, light head, fairly retentive with no lacing. The nose is metallic with light hops and and grainy malts. Tastes a bit sweet and fruity with a nice fresh taste of hops and acidified malts. Clean brief finish, perhaps a bit old almost but a decent pils. Update: Had a newer bottle and it was nearly identical, maybe .1 higher and w/o the light metal note, still crispy.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied pilsner. Fresh and clean. Nice spicy hops, with a mild malt backbone. Pilsner are not one of my favorite styles, but this one is very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one is a pretty classically done Pilsner - so as such it does not do a whole lot for me, though I have to give them credit for accuracy. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright straw yellow color with a huge creamy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was dryish cereal and light crisp perfumey and grassy hops. The flavor was tangy and citric with a sourdough bread undertone and crisp herbal hops. The finish was medium length and tangy with lingering bread and herbal hops. Light body. Ok.

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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Date of 07.18.07, Sampled September 2007
Pours with a frothy, initially three-finger thick, lightly tanned, white colored head that sits atop a brilliantly clear, gold colored brew. The aroma is fairly grass-like; the hops mostly accentuate this character, but even the malt contributes to it. Other aromatic notes of lemon grass, soda crackers, crushed pale malt and a touch of something like fresh cut weeds / wild flowers are also found in the nose.
Crisp, with a nice hop bit. The beer tastes quite dry up front, but does pick up a touch of malt sweetness towards the middle. The beer finishes with a clean, biting bitterness that really cuts through the palate. Touches of herbal hop character join with a hint of lemon zest, but I definitely feel like this could use a bit more late hop additions to round the beer out a bit. This is quite in line with the German style of Pilsner though. The malt character is fairly simple and plays a supporting role here; a touch of soda cracker malt character, hints of biscuit notes and wisps of honeyed malt sweetness. This is nice and light on the palate, and with its light body is quite easy to quaff a couple.
This is a pretty decent version of a Pilsner, one which I will be happy to drink again. It just seems to not hit the level of a great Pilsner though; something is a bit lacking.

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.
