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.

Sham (1845) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 From the bottle 9/5/05

Pours a mid-range golden, almost clear with an amply-sized white head.

The aroma is grassy hops, a hint of lemon, and unfortunately, a swampy skunky muck. The taste is surprisingly bitter, with a blast of strong and bitter hops that, though unexpected in a pilsner, was not unpleasant. Unfortunately, the skunky murky flavor that followed was unpleasant, as is the metallic aftertaste that still remains in my mouth. As the beer warmed, the skunk got skunkier.

Id like to like this beer, but Ill have to try it again. This bottle just wasnt any good. 6/3/5/3/10=2.7

Tap at Wild Ginger (the Olive Garden of Asian fusion, IMHO) in Seattle. Much, much better on tap than it was in the bottle. Entirely drinkable, enjoyable, hoppy and pretty crisp. 7/4/7/3/14 = 3.5. Ill average them out.

Clear golden color with a nice white head. Clean taste but with a surprising amount of bittered hops.

Pours clean bright yellow, finger white head. Smell simple wet grain and lager yeast. Taste a bit hoppy, grain and bread. Light body. Simple but good.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at Elysian on Capitol Hill in Seattle on 7/12/07. Clear gold with a medium white head, looks like a good Pils. Grainy, grassy aroma with a hint of hoppiness. Medium body, but a touch of stickiness on the palate, not quite as clean as I like to see with a Pils. Pretty decent bitterness over a light malty base, but with some soapiness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but just a little off in flavor and mouthfeel for a Pils.

Pours a goldent brown with big white head. Aroma is corn and malt, citrusy notes as well. Flavor is full of malt, and bitter. Good flavor, a little thin on the palate. Very carbonated. Thanks to Indiana Red for this tasty brew

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 10, 2004
pours with a large, creamy head; light amber, dull, slightly hazy body, esp. for a pils; light grapefruit and grassy hop and a touch of malty sweetness in the aroma; decebt and balanced flavor: mellow, tasty, earthy and floral, nice bitter finish; moderate body.

Standard pilsner, more bitter than my bitter. Refreshing. Golden brown color with plenty of bubbles and no head. Aromas of earthy hops and a taste of floral and spicy hops that finishes bitter.
