3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Collins Pub in Seattle, WA. Pours a clear yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral citruses and a light grass with a very lightly sweetened, grainy pils malt backing. Flavor is similar. Clean, grassy and floral citruses with a lightly sweetened, grainy pils malt backing. Finishes dry, clean, and lightly bitter with a touch of pils malt sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a tasty pils. Well balanced with a nice grassy and floral citrus alongside a lightly sweetened pils malt backing. Enjoyable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub
Blond color; creamy head. The aroma is mild and simple, but not bad. The malt flavor is quite nice and crispy, it has a grainy character; the hops are mild but they provide a nice and noble grassy touch.
Very pleasant Pilsner, gentle and elegant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Mild aroma, powerful Saaz bitterness. Light ground-wheat-thin grains. A solid Pilsner suffering the misfortune of following immediately after their spectacular kolsch. 7/3/7/4/15
Addendum: after numerous additional encounters with this beer, I’m always a bit disappointed. A brewery as good with German lagers as Chuckanut should be able to do better with a pils. This one is too grainy, not grassy enough, and just plain not as good as Trumer. Bumping the overall down a point.
