COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle: Golden, light haze, moderate white head, foamy, attractive lacing with soft carbonation.   Pale grassy nose, oats, subtle mustiness.   Sharp grassy flavors, fairly bitter too.   A fairly nice malty backside, slightly sweet, but also a touch metallic.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat bitter finish, metallic aftertaste in the back of the throat and on the sides of the tongue.   Not what I was expecting for a Pilsener.   Meh...

riversideAK (6103) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Light golden yellow pour with big bubbles and a thin head. Aroma is a nice mix of light sweetness and Saaz hops. Drinks with a grainy sweetness and a good bitterness/grassiness. Crisp and well balanced, clean pilsner.

Suttree (6046) - 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.

BuckeyeBoy (5796) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a clear straw topped with a white head. Aroma was of sweet honey and wheat. Taste was some grainy malt, a little floral hop and some fruit sweetness.

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Tap at Tangletown location - not really.pils-like at all - hefty body - tastes of.gingerbread, baked apples, and grassy hop bitterness - not sure what the hell they were going for, but pils would be my past guess.coming to this.blind.

Nice dry crisp aroma. A good dry flavor, with a strong crisp finish. This is a great easy-drinking session lager. Excellent dry lager.

Skyview (5542) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On draught at the Elysian brewery in Seattle, Washington. Pours a hazy golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, mild spice and herbs with an earthy and flowery hop scent. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt and some crystal and earthy hop flavors. Finish is light crisp with a mild bitterness. A nice summer pils with a crisp aftertaste.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Draft. Pours a copper golden body with a white head. Spruce, bitter earthy and dry. Dingy malt lightly skunked and some stale bitter puddy notes. I didn’t like it.

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.

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.
