The gentlest of the sylvan deities, embodied in the western wind which blows across the Elysian fields. Bittered with German Northern Brewer and finished with Czech Saaz hops.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2004
Tap@Elysian. Pretty typical microbrewery pilsner, very graing and thin, with a very small amount of floral, lemony hops. Crisp, thin and short. Grainy.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a amber gold. Small white head, sparse lacing and lively carbonation. Aromas of malts, hops and a spice that I cannot put my finger on. The flavor is of malt, tangy hops; citrus maybe, some bitter, and more of the spice. Fairly smooth with a tangy bite at the end.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Clear yellow/bronze, large puffy head with some lacing & moderate carbonation. The aroma has barely anything in it with a little crisp hops. The flavor is lightly malty with 2-row, not pilsner malts. Fruity like an ale with a lagerish mouthfeel. Good example of the style but a little subdued. Lots of grapefruityness.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Cloudy golden color with big rocky white head. Strong floral aroma with additional hints of citrus, hops, and yeast. The flavors are an unusual citrus and yeast like. Somewhat stringent. An different sort of pilsner and just an average beer.

TimE (5081) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 9, 2004
Tastes more like an American wheat, but with a more hopped finish. European hops are noticable, but not full bodied enough.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2003
I think I like American style Pilsner like this better than European ones (Blasphemy!). Dark yellow, big white head. Plenty of hops in the nose and a crisp, authoritative finish.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2002
Gorgeous color of peach nectar--slightly hazy with wonderful cratered head that had peaks like an Alaskan ice floe. Aroma is of young fresh hops and very slight yeastiness--interesting but almost strident. This is aggressively hopped for a pilsener, but has plenty of body beneath the assertive top-end. I only wish the malt provided more of a flavor counterpoint to the prevailing bitterness. The finish is quite clean, mildly dry and with Saaz spice hints. An interesting beer with unusual characteristics for a pilsener. If the flavor balance were a bit more malt-biased, this would be a top contender.
