2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint glass at home from a growler filled at "b2"Tap house in Salem.
$12 a growler
Bright light golden /yellow beer with a large thick and bubbly pure white head.
Aroma is weird im getting all the typical lager malt aromas but also what appears to be burning rubber..maybe its from the yeast..its not unpleasant just strange.
No burning rubber in the taste just fruity ,juicy malts and a wee bit of floral hop.Quite balanced but i know see that PNW pilsners are more on the fruity side and the nice saaz bitterness is amiss.
Mouth feel is fine i suppose its easy to drink.
I guess this is the 4th or 5th PNW pils i have had and all have been underwhelming for a pils lover.
Not their fault..mine for expecting a good German or Bohemian style pils.

Brilliant clear light gold with a thin foamy head that leaves plenty of lace. Biscuity and pilsnerish grassy tones on the nose. Smooth and peppery-grassy flavor with crackery Pilsner malt and a dry grassy finish. Clean but average and whatever.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery Tasting Room in Bend.
Thin, near watery body. Pale light golden body, Mediocre head and lacing.
Aroma and flavor (although weak) follow the style with a small twist, I think, via hop selection.

hazy champagne yellow. Aroma lemons dough. tastes floral, spicy like lillies. dry, oddly heavy palate. firm bitterness. Very tasty and aromatic, but the palate is really weirding me out. Should be lighter and more refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - pours gold with the slightest haze to it - nose has floral noble hops, moderate mineral, slight tanginess, moderate, clean pils malt sweetness - texture is wonderful - soft and creamy - medium dry and crisp, with bright fruitiness and grassy hops, with underlying bread crust, mineral, some more savory maltiness on the tail end - dry, moderately bitter finish - fantastic - if it weren’t 12 bucks a six pack, I’m make it my go-to pils for the summer - hell, I still might.

It definitely has a unique flavor all it’s own. Crisp, sure, clean, maybe, refreshing, yes actually.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at the Boise Co-Op. Pale yellow color with a finger of fluffy white head. Nose is mild, a little hoppy and pilsner malt. Lightly bready and earthy, good use of the noble hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Hoof Hearted during the "Koffüry Imperial Coffee Stout Release" on 05/01/2016 (as "Crux Pils"). The beer pours a clear golden color with a medium thick rocky white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing. Aroma of fruit, grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly spicy hops, fruit and pale malts. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.
