51 points on RateBeer. Ugh. Makes me angry that some people even review pilsners. This bright yellow beer with great bubbles percolating upwards is crisp and clean with a slight grain taste. I enjoyed this beer and it paired well with a ham and cheese sandwich.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Breakside Restaurant & Pub Brewery in Portland. Light grassiness, and very light fruit -- pears. Very pale straw color. Nice sweet grassy initial / balances so nicely in mid / final goes sweet again. Thin-medium body. Well done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from "Trader Joe" in Salem,OR.
Pours a typical pilsener yellow, but the head is quite nice..thick and creamy .
OK aromas..of grassy hop ,cereal and a little earthy.
Taste is about the same as the aroma.. except the grassy hop also turns fruity.
OK mouthfeel,about average for style
OK summer drink but not IMO a pilsener
Another of these PNW lagers masquerading as a pils.
Be truthful this is a nice drinkable lager with a PNW twist

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors about two weeks ago. I'm trying to drink my pils young because the general quick degradation of this style... And I like my pilsners crisp. Pours a lasting white foam with a light carbonation and golden body. Light grassy aroma. Minimal malt base and pleasant hops. Very good and enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear pale straw body with a short white head. Sweet-smelling rice cake and corn syrup and potato starch malt aroma with heavy vitamin chalkiness and some light German hops (lemon and spice). Light body with yogurt and starchy saltine cracker yeast / malt play. Growing bitterness across the middle. Plastic wrap and marshmallow puff finish. Neutral-flavored hops with relatively high bitterness compared to the lean body. Fizzy carbonation with starchy rice hull and grain husks and a distinct nutri-sweet finish. The hops are at least German; the malt is coarse and the carbonation fizzy. Another throw-away beer. See Heater Allen for how to do this style right.

On tap at restaurant pod in Portland. Nice amber body with medium head. Nose was pilseneresque, corny and watery, with hops in there as well. Taste is malty up front and then goes more hoppier and bitter. Crisp texture. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Lardo... Poured pale, golden amber with a moderate lacy head. This was a delicious Pils. Floral and pungent hops on the nose. Biscuit malt and some sweetness to balance all the grassy, herbal, citrus hop notes going. Clean and refreshing, went will with all the pork we were eating.
