A traditionally inspired Pilsner with a Pacific NW touch. Locally grown hops are added to give the beer a unique flavor. 8% alc.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a blonde straw color, almost clear but slight haze. Thin white head dissipates rather quickly leaving some light lacing. Smells mainly floral with subtle spice and biscuit. Malty start with a slightly spicy bitterness, followed by strong alcohol finish that stays on the palate. Fairly creamy body. Pretty good. The alcohol bite at the end is a little drawback for me, doesn’t seem to fit. Still enjoyable, most of the pilsner characteristics are there.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the grocery store. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big pils malt nose. The flavor is sweet citrus hops, some lighter bread and honey, medium bitterness. A smooth IPL and quite nice. Light orange peel and bitterness throughout. Good. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin white head. Low carbonation in the clear honey/green body. Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Love the strong floral hop aroma mixed with fresh sourdough bread. Medium body, tasting of grapefruit and biscuit. Finish is not quite as dry as it probably should be for the style, but the residual sweetness helps to somewhat balance the pronounced fresh, slightly grassy hop presence. A little bit of sweet alcohol burn late. Not sure I would enjoy three pints of this, but one bomber is quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is slight hops, not too much else. Flavor is similar to a lightly hopped IPA with the body and clean finish of a pilsner. Not bad actually, decent enough choice if you want something light but hoppy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma of herbal tea, hay and bready pils malt. Flavor is malty without being sweet, medium hop bitterness, no alcohol and a very clean yeast profile. Light body with average carbonation. Nice easy drinking beer, drinks like a lower abv beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, loose white head. Smells like grass and a little grainy. Flavor is bready, with some nice grassy, mildly spicy hops. Surprisingly easy to drink. Crisp finish, but not as crisp as I was hoping.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. from Fred Meyer @ $6,09. Typically I find most fresh hop ales lacking in theie hop profile. This one does exceedingly well and the pilsner style leads to a very easy drinking beer that still satisfies. God, that sounded like a Budweiser commercial. Must be the 8% ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Liquor World. This has potential. It’s quite hoppy and dry with pleasing bite. There’s some skunk and hay too. The flavor has the cereal and woody bitterness. But there’s metallic, vegetal twang in the finish. This could be much better if not for the off flavors lurking.
