COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We always wanted to make a year-round German-style Pilsner. Both because it tastes great and it’s a favorite of ours. We import bagged German Pilsner malt and manually add 3,300 pounds to each batch because we believe that’s what it takes to make a great German pilsner. We source all Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, which we prize for their mix of floral and “Noble” notes. Then we wait. This beer is unfiltered, so we rely on natural lagering techniques (i.e. long times and cold temperatures) to get this beer as bright as sunshine.

651mL from Whole Foods Bend, OR. Pours a clear straw. Thick, sheets of lacing. Nose is heavier biscuit is thick marmalade, chamomile, clover honey, freshly cut grass. bright tangerine/grapefruit. Taste is dry, hoppy, grassy, thicker honey and biscuit balance. Longer grassy hop finish with thicker honey and biscuit malt to balance. Seems like a solid MrChopin and 3fourths style pilsner that gets the thumbs up from a big pilsner lover.

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.

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.

CapFlu (4522) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
(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. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

Nice gold pour with a bright white head. Clean and quite tasty for the style. Lemons, grass, light notes of dried hay. Tasty.

Draft at indigo. Pours a clear pale gold with a loose white head and plenty of lace. Nice grassy nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Biv crackery finish. Pretty dialed for the style. Not bad.

Draft at churchkey. Pours a clear medium gold with a loose white head. Mild grassy crackery nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, crackery mid palate with a light resiny finish. Hoppier and heavier than expected, but in a pleasant way.

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.
