Beer of the Week: Sudwerk The People's Pilsner

Beer score: 7.2

Company: Sudwerk Brewing Company
ABV: 5.3
IBU: 35

The folks from Sudwerk Brewing in California have been making a pilsner now for more than a couple of decades. This is their latest batch. I don't know if it's the same as the pilsners they have made in the past, but the name and packaging are different.

This one pours a light straw color in a clear glass while giving off aromas of light caramel and a breadiness.

It's texture is fairly light and wet, but this drink is fairly strong for a pilsner with a hardy bitterness. There are hints of a citrus sourness as this one goes down, but only hints, reminding me a bit of grapefruit and maybe lemon.

I've had several Sudwerk pilsners over the years, though not regularly, and all of them have been pretty solid. This one is no exception, and I'd drink it again.
