COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our take of the renowned Bohemian-style pale lager that you might find in Bavaria or the Czech Republic. Ours is a little more golden, rounder, and a little more malt driven than many other versions. The beer possesses strong hop character that is balanced by its rich, round, malty palate. Refreshing and balanced, this beer is a favorite of our winery friends during harvest. (1.014 BG, 5.0%, 38 IBU, 4 SRM)

Yellow golden clear filtered body with neat whitish head. Piquant pissy hippy node with lager yeast presence. Crisp, refreshingly, no diacytel. A bit more aggressive than traditional German Pilsners but well made and uber clean.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle:   Dark straw, miniscule haze, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Semi-sweet grassy nose, a little straw and hay.   Herbal grass and hay up front, smooth barnish malts on the backside.   Yeah, smooth.   Clean on the finish.   Grassy but not heavy, good flavors.   I am thinking this may be one of the better American made Pils I have had.   Body and mouthfeel are great.   Even as this warms it still doesnt show any off flavors.   I was worried after having Bobtoberfest, but this one takes the cake.   Good stuff!

22oz bottle recently purchased in Portland. Pours a slightly hazed light golden yellow with a nice thick 2 finger white head. Looks nice in the glass. Nice crisp Pils nose...super clean dry hay, pepper, grassy hop, some citrus notes, very light cracker aroma as well. Light crisp clean but full of flavor. Grassy and lightly sweet dry cracker up front then bitter earthy hops wrapped up with with some very faint citrus. I love this stuff and would buy it all the time if it were locally available to me.

22oz - Aroma of straw, hay, pale malts and floral hops. Flavor is perfectly balanced sweet malts and floral hops. Palate is creamy and smooth. A tasty and silky pils.

hayduke (3534) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 16, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a very clear golden color with a very nice fat white head and quite decent lacing. The nose is a solid floral hop and caramel malt aroma. The moutheel is exceptionally clean and smooth. The flavor is very refreshing, and the the finish is dry and bitter. An exceptionally good plisener.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2009
22oz bottle pours a crystal clear golden with big, frothy white head. Grassy hops and a little sweet malt in the aroma. Taste is cereal/bready malts balanced with a light, but assertive bitterness. Clean, refreshing, and utterly drinkable. This would fit right in if you put it next to a lineup of Czech pilsners. Tastes fresh as can be, but is at least three weeks in the bottle, and probably more. I want more. Please send bottles to WA, and Chuckanut, please start bottling as well.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Poured dark orange red with thick white head. Moderate lacing. Darker than most pilseners. Medium aroma of hop, new hay and fresh grass. Medium flavour, maltier than say.. Pilsener Urquell, balanced. Lasting hop finish. Worth having another.

Bottle shared by Ted. Bold nobel hops and plenty of pilsner malt character in the nose. Lots of herbal hop flavor. Sprite carbonation. Very dry finish. Quality.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Hazy bright yellow with a slight orangish tint; medium frothy head settles down without problems. Aroma a little nondescript for a hoppy beer, hard to pin anything specific down, perhaps tree bark. Wonderful hoppy flavor, bready, grassy, a little yeasty, medium bodied. Just incredibly tasty and refreshing, and was this not my only bottle which my awesome friend so thoughtfully brought back for me from Portland Oregon, I would drink this all the time and in large quantities. One of the two best pilsners I’ve had to this point.

daknole (9797) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 7, 2009
For a pils this is damn good. Hazy yellow pour. Light head. Floral hops, honey, yeast, and light fruitiness in the aroma. Flavor is really well balanced between hops, yeast, dryness, fruitiness and a nice level of carbonation. Very good beer.
