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.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Major diacetyl here as this warms, especially in the flavor. Becomes undrinkable. Light hops at least partly cover up the butter. Tastes like bud with some decent czech hops added. Terrible.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden beer, thin white head. Aroma is quite grassy and herbal. Lightly floral with lots of straw. Light bitterness. Ok, but underwhelming.

Rciesla (5499) - 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.

bwa5879 (685) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Pale yellow that’s mostly clear, a little white head, lots of lacing. Sweet kind of macro smell, corny, mixed with a hint of artificial grape. Thin mouthfeel and lively carbonation, somewhat astringent finish. Bitter pils flavor that’s fairly light, some distinct floral taste too. Decent for a pils.

maxwelldeux (3688) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a hazy dark golden color. Nose is filled with corn and grains, and seems relatively unremarkable for me. Taste seems exactly like every other lager, and was wholly unremarkable. Just not my thing.

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.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Tap at Tangle Town in Seattle. Pours a clear golden with wispy foam. Nose is lemon, apple, cidery. Taste is sweet white grape, celery. Soapy, biting, metallic palate.

BillKismet (3340) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
Fuller in appearance than most pilseners--tangerine in color and well carbonated. The aroma is rather skunky, though after some time, spicing is more detectable. This is a moderately complex pilsner with some piny/hoppy components. Fairly smooth with some positive qualities, but the smell detracts from the experience.

on tap at elysian. no wonder americans don’t like pilsners. this is typically golden, lemony, too light on the saaz and very thin
