3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at SB. Pours a clear medium gold with a loose white head that sticks around. Light crackers and grass on the nose. Creamy light body with soft lively carb. Very dry finish--gets you right back in the mood for another sip as soon as you finish a sip. This is a clean, balanced, flavorful pilsner that’s a bit bigger than a standard pale but not heavy at all. Good food beer or refresher. Gotta be an improvement on batches from years ago, though I don’t recall ever trying older batches.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewery.
A: Semi-transparent orange with a thin white head.
N: Biscuit, straw, cracker, light hopping lends peppercorn, pine, and some citrus.
T: Quite sweet - possibly too much for the style, though not cloying. Slight bitterness.
M: Lighter body, carb on the ligther side and as such gives this a flatness on the tongue.
O: An unspectacular pilsner. Blame Heater Allen for my snobbishness in the matter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Almost amber in color? Off white top. Scent is grassy and bready. Bready taste is backed with lemon and grass.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Honey gold with decent carbonation and a ring of head. Dank, statle hope nose. The body is full of Saaz and grassy, something definitely of the Czech lineage, of which I am not an aficionado.

Nice and fresh. Plenty of hop and a tickle of dusty grain. Aye, it’s a great beer but a pilsener? I’m just not sure.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Poured gold with thin fast dissipating head. Little lacing. Slight but pleasant grassy aroma, light bodied malt flavour. Nice hop edge and a pleasant finish. This beer had virtues, simply not enough of them.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this little beauty last week at the taproom in Hood River. Super sessionable pils, extremely true to style. Crisp and quite clean on the palate. Some straw and hay notes, wonderfully aromatic lots of floral notes, with some spicy hops coming through as well. This is really nice to drink. This place makes top quality brews!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at release party at Henry’s bar and Grill in Portland, OR--A light clean, cloudy golden body you’d expect from a Pils with a creamy off-white head. Spicy, hoppy, floral nose. Sharp, nutty, floral, crisp, dry and very astringent in the finish. Green and grassy. Uber-sessionable.
