mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
On tap at HUB Bike Bar, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light grass, some corn and biscuit malts. Flavour of dry grassy hops, dry biscuit malts and straw. Well-made pils with good bite. Decent.

marcus (6511) - 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.

Can:   Translucent golden, little frothy white head, light lacing.   Soft dusty grassy nose.   Crisp grassiness up front, clean, very light sweetness.   If this is Organic I am surprised as its not grainy or soily.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very crisp and clean finish, grassy, malty, lightly hoppy, with just the right amount of sweetness to allow this beer to seem a little dry.   Really well put together, wow!

Rastacouere (6130) - 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.

after4ever (6130) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Draft at Main Street Alehouse. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a big white head that really sticks around, leaving plenty of lacing on the way down. Mild soda cracker nose. Rich, creamy, lively carbed medium body. Great presence on the attack, especially for a pils. Grassy, crackery mid-palate with a nice toasty cracker finish. Light and refreshing with plenty of flavor. Beautifully done.

drowland (6049) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma of bready malts, pils malts, doughy, with light citrus and grassy spice. Light flavor as well, bready, doughy, just enough citrus and grassy hop bite. Not bad.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big malty, sweaty nose. Light biscuit, honey, some grain. Easy and clean.

[3113-20100704] Sample. Hay-like grassy yeast aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Doughy bread yeast flavour has hints of grassy yeast. Light body. Odd aroma at first is not bad. Would like to try more from this brewery.
