Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has crisp grain and grass notes with straw supporting. Flavor is similar with straw and grain with a bit of crisp grass growing.

Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a bit of a head. Packed with linalool and other nice fruity characters. Balanced, light, and tasty.

Fatehunter (2270) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body. The aroma is non-existent. Maybe a little grain. The taste starts out with some mild honey sweetness, then gets that dry pine and lemon bitterness that lasts through to the finish. It has a long dry bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. The taste profile was pretty good, but the aroma was completely lacking.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery straw, moderate frothy white head, light carbonation, little lacing.   Straw and hay on the nose, pale sweetness.   Slightly dusty.   Dry grass on the tongue, very mild sweetness.   Feels even a little chalky/dusty on the tongue.   Clean, but not too crisp.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Lingering stray and hay.   Respectable, even if not as crisp as I would have liked.

Squizzle (246) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Its good but I wouldn’t call it a Czech Pilsner. Pilsner yes but lacks the complexity of a Czech. Just too light. However, it tastes refreshing and was pretty affordable

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy pale malts, light spicy hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Clean and balanced. Pretty good.

Reid (2333) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2013
22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $3.99 Poured into my Freiburger Pilsner glass. Typical sunshine yellow beer with a large bubbly/frothy almost pure white head. Not much aroma to my surprise..maybe a touch of biscuity malt and a very small grassy hop. Taste has more hop but its mainly lemon zest and floral in aspect..after taste is grassy..malts are mild and bready. Mouthfeel is OK for style right on. Its a good lager but for me not a Czech Pilsner...same as the vast majority of PNW beers masquerading as this..its a very good lager nothing more..sorry
