Gilgamesh Exbeerimental #1 - Filbert Lager - A crisp pilsen-style lager with a slight nutty body. Hand copped and roasted local Oregon filberts are prepared for every batch, then added to the boil along with the hops. Over eight lbs of nuts in every barrel.

Clear gold with a pretty platinum head that lasts. I could tell that I needed to let this one warm up because it came almost overly cold from the tap. Nose is crisp crackery malt, autumn leaves, light herbal hops, with a slightly sweet nutty chord running through it all. Taste is very true to the nose, with the nutty and herbal nuances filling in all the right places. Body is medium light, and the carb is active but not aggressive. While the bitterness is relatively low, the finish shines with herbal hops and rounded nuttiness. Fun beer, and another winner for Gilgamesh.

On draught at Gilgamesh The Campus. Clear golden color. Sweet nutty aroma. Never had a pilsner-style lager with such a dense flavor, with sweet filbert notes and a touch of herbal spice. Quite smooth and sessionable. Impressed.

draft. clean, firm malt throughout, a hallmark of these brewers. very light filbert nuttiness in the nose allows the subtle noble-like hops (dried leaves) to present themselves. clean, snappy, fresh, lightly nutty with firm malt structure and frothy carbonation. well-made as always with gilgamesh.

Tried this on a lark. Tasted really good. Light and crisp but with that added heaviness from the nuts that were added.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Draft served in a pilsner glass at Ventiís Taphouse, S.Salem. Appearance? Golden yellow with a nice sized pure white head. Nice lager aromas..bready, nutty. Good fresh taste..grassy, cereal, small hopping and some nuttiness that finishes off the mouthfeel well Good and smooth on the palate..no problem at all drinking this. Good stuff

Draft. Light golden color with a thin white head, no lacing. Smells like a pilsner - grassy, cereal grains, with an added hint of nuttiness. Light bodied, good carbonation. Well-balance pilsner taste - barley and slightly spice hops, with a sweet, nutty twist from the filberts (hazelnuts).

I enjoyed this very local brew - in the world of lagers, this was a nice change of pace

Tap at the brewpub. Pours clear dark gold. Light hop aroma. Med body. Flavor is lightly nutty - enough to improve a pale lager. A little bready. A little hop in the finish.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Tap at 16 Tons. Hazy yellow, milky looking beer thst is one of the ugliest Iíve ever seen. Hazelnuts very apparent in both nose and mouth, with a little biscuit thrown in. This is no Rogue Hazelnut Brown, thatís for sure.

Salem Oregon, draft. Okay beer for a lager. Better than an American lager...good kolch lager. Light color, pretty good body characteristics.
