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.

Tap@Elysian. Pretty typical microbrewery pilsner, very graing and thin, with a very small amount of floral, lemony hops. Crisp, thin and short. Grainy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT> Pours a slight protien chill haze, with a very thin white head and very slight lacing- carbonation must have been tuned down too much. Aroma is nice at first- earthy saaz like hops, with nice nutty and bready pils malts- diacetyl is slight and comes out as it warms. Flavor is bready and toasty with tons of hops- but is almost too bitter and becomes a bit astringent. Finish is relatively clean and smooth- easy to drink despite its harsh bitterness.

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

West USA trip 2010. On tap at the brewpub. The aroma is grassy and flowery. Clear, yellow-golden coloured beer with a quite creamy, white head. The taste is bitter, bit malty and has the grassy flowery hops everywhere. Crisp with a dry end. Good pils.

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on October 17, 2007. Pours a thin white hea and a clear golden body. Nose of light Saaz hops and a bready malt. Flavour is nicely balanced and very fresh. I like the thickness of the palate with a mild bitterness in the finish. I thought this was pretty good.
