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

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.

Draught. Poured clear gold with thin white head, Moderate lacing. Delicate grassy aroma. Full flavour with biscuity and rusky notes among the malt. Crisp clean hop finish.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
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.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Saaz hop aroma, yellow, somewhat pale. Crisp, sharp, snappy hop finish. Clean with a bold rounded pale malt flavor, no off character barges in.

On tap at the Portland Deschutes pub. Pours gold, very clear, with a small fizzy white head. Grassy hops in the nose, with a nice spiciness to them, bready body, very clean and crisp pils. Maybe not as floral as some of the really nice ones, but an easy drinking and well balanced pils.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2008
G.A.B.F. 2008: Pale golden with great clarity and a dense white head. The aroma is solid Pilsner malt/biscuity and crackery with mild zesty lemon. Crisp and light body. The flavor has a great balance of crackery malts, bread crust and hints of soft lemon peel. The finish is grassy and mildly bitter. Nice and dry, very drinkable. A solid session Pilsner.

5 ounce sample on tap at the Pub in Portland, OR. Aroma has some spicy hoppiness with a great deal of biscuity malt aromas, too. Light metallic undertones are also there. Transparent golden body with a scant white head. Starts with a nice spicy, grassy Noble hop goodness. Has a mild astringency in the middle. Finishes with some biscuit and light metallic hop notes. Not bad at all. Wish they bottled/canned this!
