Deschutes Pils is a traditional German-style pilsner using only the finest pale malts, Czech Saaz hops, and German lager yeast. Cold fermentation and a long lagering period ensure a smooth malt taste and crisp hop bitterness. June thru September

22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland. Best by 6/15/14. Sweet, biscuity pilsner malt aroma. Some metallic notes, and a little skunked hops, too. Somewhat spicy. Just doesn’t smell crisp. Transparent, impressive yellow body with a large, pillowy, fizzy white head present. Attractive beer. Starts with mild biscuit sweetness, before this becomes a mess with lots of vegetal and DMS flavoring. Floral, fruity finish without really much in the way of hop bitterness. No bueno.

Pour is a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is cracker dry pils malt and an odd but in a good way citrus. Flavor is super dry pils malt with a bit of lemon and grass. After the swallow I get a bit of chamomile tea and a tart bitterness. Pretty decent pils. Very drinkable and dry.

Pours clear golden with ample white frothy head that clings to glass. Aromas of bready pilsner malt with grassy and slight citrus notes. Very crisp taste with initial flavors of grassy slight hop bitterness that fades to a malty yeasty bread finish. Flavorful and refreshing pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pale clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma has pils malt, mushiness, heavy bread, grass, spice and light citrus. The aroma is quite bright. It has a medium / light body that’s quite smooth and has fairly light carbonation. The flavor starts sweeter and maltier than most pils, but its still enjoyable. It also has spicy ./ grassy hop character and has a nice overall cleanness. The finish dries out a bit and has a spiciness that pops out. Quite nice.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 22 picked up over the weekend for about $4 at the 16th St Albertsons. Man... Been a LONG time since I remember seeing this one in bottles... Probably 10 years or so. Pours a crystal clear straw golden... 1/2" white head leaves beautiful lace.. Nose shows more spicy hoppiness, but floral hops adds a nice layer IMO... grainy/cracker maltiness. Flavor mirrors the nose but has a decent bitterness to balance the malts... very clean and very crisp... incredibly drinkable... Crushable.

Brand new fresh 22oz - Pours a perfect yellow with a tight white head. Lemon citrus aroma with herbal grassy notes. Sweet malts with a citrus dry finish, a delicious Pils!

Aroma is honey sweetness and grassy, spicy hoppiness with light minerality. Flavor follows suit, grassy, spicy, lightly citric hops atop a pleasant honey, biscuity malt backbone. Minerality is present contributing to the crispness of the dry finish. Very good pils.
