Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Unfiltered straw coloured golden pour wearing a more than fair white head. From the looks, I already expect greatness. From the look on my face, I have been served. It’s a very clean pls malt nose that I encounter on the first whiff where hay and the softest breadiness are in fine equilibrium. Refreshing grassy, herbal and slightly spicy bitterness comes with the cleansing, crisp carbonation to provide the kind of finish I like: the one that tells you the next sip will always be welcome and will never be less tasty or interesting than the last one. Saturation just does not happen with that type of beer. Perfect sunny day lager, dry and straightforward. Unsurprisingly, I’m in total disagreement with the majority here. That’s one mighty fine lager, but perhaps not responding to the average wet dreams of a Portland visitor.

marcus (6861) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head and a standard lager aroma. There is a crisp, clean flavor that is a bit too thin for my taste.

Draft HUB. Slightly hazy light golden with white head. Nose is slight of grass, wheat, semi sweet corn. Grass, sweet hay with some corn notes and light bittering on the end.

neepsntatties (1271) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2009
On tap at H.U.B. Colour... as light as a light beer and no head at all. Nose... flowery and quite pils-like. Palate... definite Saaz hops up front, tingly CO2, tangy, lightly floral, cut grass, hay and a slightly grainy finish. Wish I would’ve had this over the summer!

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Tap at Hopworks. Aroma of grassy hops, a lovely complex bready graininess, slight dry, champagne-like fruitiness. Flavor has a juicy fruitiness with increasing grain complexity and a heap of bitterness from the hops. An in-your-face, but at the same time subtle and complex pils.
