3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fine enough pilsener. Quite pale body; not as golden as Urquell or Budvar, but it's of no matter. Aroma is off spice (cilantro) and freshly cut peppers. Come to think of it, this would pair great w/ Mexican food. Flavor is sweet and streamlined; for some reason I think of wheat field waving in the wind. Yeah, whatever. Finishes super-clean with a pleasant tinge of yeast. Finely executed.

clear slightly pale water with bubbles and a thin layer of white fiz, wonderful fresh floral spicey hop nose, flavor is direct and clean, slight hop spice flabor cuts through with a very nice balance of bitter to malt ration and dry at the end, great refresher for a hot east bay night

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours a piss yellow with very quickly dispersing foam. Tastes crisp with an aftertaste of urine...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp....really crisp. A common claim for pilsners so I guess that is the desirable feature, and this one overachieves at that. Overall, it is a a lot better than macro lager. The ugly nuttyness that dances with Saccharomyces pastorianus is on full display. Sudwerk brews up some good stuff, but they make styles that are not my favorite. So "great for style" is final verdict.

pale straw color. Nose of light corn and cereal grains. Sweet and floral hints as well. Exceptional cleanup. Lots of clean, smooth maltiness.

Draft from early 05 visit. Nice bright gold pour, and a decent clean light malty nose. Clean crisp malt flavor, and muted hops, with nice corn flavors. A decent pilsener beer, considering its not my favorite style.

On tap, part of the 10 beer sampler. Light color, slighty hoppy, but not much to it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of lemon, vanilla and oats. Appearance is light gold with a thin foam top. Taste is crisp and smooth with faint flavors of lemon and coriander. Overall, don’t expect a full or flavorful beer. With that said, I do find this a crisp and refreshing beer with good drinkability. I’d give this a C- rating.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden in color. Head sits like whip cream on top of this highly carbonated lager. Dry aromatics with spicy hops and an underpinning of malt. Mouthfeel is soft and pleasing. Flavor is wrapped with aggressive hop flavor but a little hop bitterness that allows the malt and hop flavor to prevail. Hop flavor is earthy and spicy and maltiness has a subtle graininess.
