This is a pretty darn good tasting beer. Who knew Deschutes could pull off a European style?

In fairness I’m not a huge pioneer fan, however I’m enjoying this. Nice bright citrus and grass aromas. Light body and mellow but present hops. Overall pretty good and excellent for this style.

On tap. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grain and hay with a bit of grass bitterness underlying. Flavor combines crisp grains with grass and a bit of hay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle poured. Still getting used to the new look of the Deschutes brand bottles. I didn’t even recognize this one when I picked it up. Lucky for me, I somehow hadn’t rated it anyway. Pours a clear golden color with a ton of foam head and lace. High carb. Not a whole lot of standout characteristics here, but the flavor is pretty good, and very easy to drink. I don’t actively seek them out much, but sometimes after a long day, a middle of the line pilsner is exactly what is needed. Not bad.

Tap at Deschutes in Portland. Clear golden pour with a smaller white head. Fresh grass aroma. Some grassy bitterness on taste. Really well balanced and well made.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an almost unfiltered look of hazy dense gold, orange and brown tones with a thick head that disappears and leaves traces of lacing. Very low carbonation, easy cool mouthfeel. Smell is sweet, honey, grass, earth, with pine and hops - all very balanced. Taste follows, wow this is balanced. Sweet but with a resilient bitterness, a hop and pine conflict that backs the sweetness and leaves a long, dry, bitter aftertaste. Amazing beer, the definition of pilsner

Pine Mountain is a little stubborn, not letting us scan it first. It was $4.99 for a 22oz.

Light notes of grain. Amber yellow. Starts smooth then acidic. Flavor completes with light hop juggle.

Bomber from total wine.
Golden pour, white head. Nice hoppy pils, big flavor, quite drinkable. I’d repeat the experience.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, yellow pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma is a little cheesy along with herbal hops. It has a light body with watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a dry finish.
