Tasted from a fancy brown glass 2L growler into a schooner glass. Thanks jcw0220! It poured a cloudy copper color with cream, long-lasting off-white foam and lace. Very strong earthy, spicy, grassy aroma, flowery and resiny hops, cool use of sage. Flavor was a deliciously dirty, bready, crusty, marshmallowy pils malt sweetness balanced by tangy hops and earthy sage again. Light-medium body, tart and refreshing. Unusual but well-balanced. A great beer.

On tap at Deschutes pub in Portland. Nicely balanced with a kick of hops that an IPA lover would welcome in a Pils. Refreshing and great for a variety of drinkers.

Lightly toasted pilsener malt body. Dry and biscuity with a light pear note. Some grassy character. Crisp and very refreshing.

Verre de 20 oz, au pub de Portland. Arômes de houblon épicé (très poivré) et de paille fraîche. Robe dorée et limpide, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Le houblon montre un côté très intéressant avec de belles notes poivrées et herbacées. Le malt est croustillant et la finale est raisonnablement sèche et montre une belle amertume de houblon. Simple, mais efficace.

A solid little whaeaty pilsner. The appearance is as beerish as you can get, golden in color, fizzy bubbles bubbling to a white fizzy head. The aroma wasn’t a lot to talk about, but I’d say it’s a little grassy/wheat-y which is what I’d say for the flavor as well.
