A well-built pilsener and unlike the typical American micro interpretation of the style (Victory, Tupper, North Coast). This adheres rigidly to the German Pils framework. Tasts much like Einbecker or perhaps Bitburger. Fills out its frame marvelously. Would like to drink this in quantity. FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2006
12oz. bottle. Pale yellow-gold color with a medium sized rocky white head. Grainy aromatics with tinges of spicy vegetal hops. Bitter, spicy hop nose gives way to a grainy, somewhat husky malt flavor. Clean, crisp profile in the finish is marred slightly by a stale bread element. Mouthfeel is light, fairly dry.

Mainly clear dark straw. Small, compact white froth. Very slow carbonation. German hop aroma met with wet grass and bready malts. Sharp, tingly and bracingly crisp. Nice initial hop charge of spicy Hallertau. Lemon rind aftertaste. Light body. Quenching, dry malt flavor of toasted white bread. Gentle slickness. Clean, fresh tasting with no residue. Finishes with mineral hints and a toasty counter to the hop bitterness. Very nice. Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2003
grainy honey aroma, kinda cloudy, weak honey flavors not enough crispness or hop presence Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Pours a piss yellow with very quickly dispersing foam. Tastes crisp with an aftertaste of urine...

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. AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
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 DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
On tap, part of the 10 beer sampler. Light color, slighty hoppy, but not much to it. Nik925 (795) - USA - JUN 9, 2010
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. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2003
pale straw color. Nose of light corn and cereal grains. Sweet and floral hints as well. Exceptional cleanup. Lots of clean, smooth maltiness.
