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.

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

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.

Tap at Congregation. White head dissolves in five minutes over fast lacing and a clear, pilsner body. Aroma is pilsner mild but straw, grass, and some process of baking whole grain bread or urine. Taste is mildly sweet becoming water with a long, mild bitter finish. There is mild umami somewhere between the aroma and the finish. Overall, very good, but there are better.

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

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.

krumbum (991) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Clear sun bleached straw yellow. The hop is so light the malt sticks out, it mellows but the flavor lasts. It has a slight bitter.

vyvvy (5887) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours light clear yellow with smaller white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, spicy hops, light herbs and touch of dough. It has a light crisp body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cry malt, bright minty hops, grass, minerals and crackery malt. The finish is fairly astringent. Pretty good.
