This lager has body, character and some of the fruity aspects of an ale. Amazing. Itís drinkable. Coast Range does it again.

Bomber poured a clear golden yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of bread, light carmel and some herbal notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light carmel, straw and bread with a crisp clean finish.

Pailhead (5837) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Aroma of lemon, light orange, and grass. Pours a tranparent golden orange with a small white head. Hint of citrus and caramel up front. Moderate grassy hop finish with a hint of citrus hops as well. Rather solid for a style Iím not a big fan of.

650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Yellow with a fizzy white head. Bready aroma. Grainy bready taste with a hint of citrus and more hops evident than I expected.

This pilsner pours a light orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Touch of graininess. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet and grainy and grassy. Lots of orange and citrus flavors as well. Hops are aggressive for a pilsner, fairly bitter grapefruit and citrus. Has a crisp clean taste, a nice malt backbone and a fairly strong hop bite. Needless to say this is my kind of pils. Light and refreshing with lots of flavor. The farm house series of beers from Coast Range continues to be an interesting and very drinkable beers,

heemer77 (5198) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Dark gold body with a large white head. Plenty of small, fast moving bubbles in the lager glass. Funnel cake and light notes of Saaz in the nose. This drinks fairly easy with some biscuit and then sharp celery coming through in the finish. There is also a little bit of black pepper, but itís only after you swallow. As I drank more, the vegetable sharpness became more like an incessant spice in a food. Decent, but could have used some more balance with a little bigger body for the hops.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2008
Straw color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of grass, grain, dry erase markers, light raisins and other light fruit. Euro lager maybe, Euro Pils not; at least not from the scent. Lightly floral dough flavors. Lightly grainy and a bit dry. Really not much of a pilsener. A lager with pilsener tendencies, but not enough malt or hops definition to make a solid brew. Too sweet , not that crisp and clean. Not quite there in many a ways.

22 oz bomber shared with others. Ubiquitous pale yellow amercan lager color and appearance. Typical beer aroma with just a little candy sweetness. Aroma carries over to the flavor, also has a candy like flavor somewhat like many good dorts Iíve had. Mild flavors and medium low carbonation. Very little bitterness at first but the pilsner bite slowly builds to something that is apparent. Friendly and sweet except for that pilsner bite. Not quite as bitter as many pilsners and I found this brew rather enjoyable.

FlacoAlto (4013) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Pours with an initially two-finger thick, frothy, light tan colored head that sits atop an ever-so-lightly hazy, gold colored brew. The aroma is a mix of sweet malt, dried hay, grassy malt, dusty crushed malt, hints of apple and even some green grape notes.

Sweet malt notes, mingle with a herbal, grassy hop flavor and a finish of lightly astringent, bitterness. The beer has a solid bitterness from beginning to end that provides a much needed balance to the simple, sweet grain character. This is fairly clean, like a good Pils should be, but somehow lacks a crispness that I would like to see; I think that the malt is just a touch muddied or perhaps dusty is a better deScriptor. The malt is not nearly as clean and bright as I would want in a Pils. The hop bitterness is a bit too green & astringent too; again this keeps the overall character of the beer from being clean and crisp. The malt sweetness accentuates a fruitiness that is reminiscent of golden raisins and hints of apples. It is nice and light and easily sipped on a hot summerís day.

This is a tasty Pils, it just is not quite integrated enough to be a great example. I am definitely happy to be drinking a 22oz bottle of this though.
