3.75/5 rDev -0.8%
No bottle date that I can detect.
A: Nice golden color. Trransparent. Vigorous carbonation rushes to the surface. Finger and a half of bleached head with fairly rapid dissipation. Retention is minimal.
S: Nice maltiness. Very biscuit or bread like. Hops come through and are very noble smelling. Herbal, lemon, some sulphur, a little bit of saltiness.
T: Nice bit of malt in the front. Very crackery. Saltiness kicks in. Little bit of toasted character in the malt. Mid palate takes on a bit of a sour turn. Lemon, some green apple skin. Saltiness maintains (think saltine). Transitions threw to a fairly herbaceaous bitterness. A soap like citrus is also in there on the end. Very dry finish, with virtually no aftertaste other than bitterness.
M: Light, refreshing. Vigorous carbonation may be a distraction to some.
O: Pretty good pils. There is a strange element with the lemon/soap, but it's not bad. Fairly bitter, as well. Would definitely pick up again.

Pours a mostly clear straw color with a chill haze. Little head and no lace. Aroma of bready malt, herbal hop and a bit of citrus. In the taste, pilsner malt and smaller, slightly citrusy hop character with lemon notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel on a pils that is easy to drink. Overall, this was a decent pils with good flavor.

4.1/5 rDev +8.5%
I could easily drink the entire 6 pack. Some apple breaks through & slight peppery hops. Finishes crisp, bready, and maybe a hint of corn. A sweet taste to start, with not much hop at all.
Very drinkable. Milder German pils. Color is a very light yellow. This beer was better then I hat anticipated.

Privatebrauer Sudwerk Pilsner: Davis, CA
-ABV not on bottle (always bugs me), but it was a sample bottle, so you never know.
-Poured into a Sam Adams Beer glass
-Appearance: Fairly clear, wheat/straw colored, lots of carbonation visible. Thin head, expected more foam with the amount of carbonation seen.
-Smell: Doesn't smell as malty as I had expected. Actually, it smells more like a corn based beer product. Tried desperately to smell -anything- (and I have an excellent sense of smell, I taste for a living!) Just not much there.
-Taste: Light, crisp, hint of florality, which was sadly missing in the smell. Much better than the smell would have let on. Good carbonation, a little sweet on the finish. I actually very much enjoyed this beer, I just wish the smell had matched the body.
