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.

Acrid aroma. Mellow taste with a bit of the back of the mouth bitters.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Bright gold; decent head. A little lighter than the helles. Creamy body with a lively carbonation. Dry and grainy malts with very little sweetness. Decent amount of bitterness, but aromas weren’t the greatest ... and what was there was mild. Bitter flowers and some grass in the finish.

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

Yellowish gold color with no head. Looks like champagne. Aroma and taste is like malted corn juice. If it wasn’t for the lively carbonation, I’d pour this shit.

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.

A pretty boring pilsner. Pours a clear yellow. No smell, and not much taste either. A little spicy. Boring. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

My bottle was commercially labelled for the Marines’ Historical Hotel and Museum in San Francisco, CA. named "Leatherneck Lager." picture of a marine on front running with a rifle. pretty cool. unfortunately, the beer itself leaves much to be desired. looks like gingerale. a very clear, watered hay-yellow, bubbling over (highly carbonated). little aroma. sweet malts. tastes of roasted malts and finishes slightly bitter (mild hops). thin mouthfeel, at first, but an offense and viscous residue is left uncomfortably behind. overall a weak, bland taste. not much too it.

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.
