COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Chatoe Rogue Good Chit Pilsner.
Good Chit Pilsner is made with Rogue Farm barley that we Floor-Malted in small batches. Floor Malting is an old fashioned, 8 day process that includes steeping, germination, raking, roasting, bagging and hands-on love 24 hours a day. "Chit" refers to the start of the rootlets that emerge from the embryo of the kernel once steeping is complete and germination begins.

I feel this could have been a bit better, but not too bad for an American pils. Average crackery aroma and taste, not enough snap in the hops. Decent body and finish

As a Czech guy I had few pilsners with traditionally floor malted grains. However never enjoyed grassy to floral hops in Pilsner. If Rogue uses his own grains and malting methods than I am missing a fuller body.

Transfer from BA review on 5-2-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a fantastic level of foamy lace rings on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready and cracker like smell mixed with some light sweetness of a peach and apple nature. Along with these smells are a bit of hay and grass as well as some aromas of a more floral nature. Taste – The taste begins with a crisp bready and more biscuit like flavor with some light fruit flavors of pear and a bit of peach. Right from the start there is a bit of earthiness that persists throughout the taste. A hint of caramel develops later in the tongue, but some of the fruit flavors are lost, with the flavor remaining overall very crisp. Some other hop flavors of a floral and grassy nature join the tongue later on as the taste advances. Some light grainy flavors and a some more fruity flavors come to the tongue at the very end, sweetening the taste a touch and mingling with the rest of the flavors to still leave a very nice crisp and refreshing taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are fantastic for the moderately drier, crisp, and refreshing taste of the brew and create a nice overall feel. Overall – A rather tasty and refreshingly crisp brew. Great for the summertime and a nice one to try if you get a chance.

"a nice, semi-sweet, grassy pilsner. the only odd thing about the Rogue variations is that the body seems a little...idunno...thick? for the style. not bad, just not typical. pretty nice beer with a crisp finish. i don’t buy too many $6 pilsners, though. A one timer."

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle - 650ml. Hazy blond body with an average, white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and some piney hints. Its fresh hoppy aroma carries malty, grainy, coriander and citrusy notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Interesting.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 pours a bright screaming yellow with low head. well its like a pilsner. Mmm bud. Corn and sweet malts with no character. Like a stronger bud.
