Had this on tap at La Conner Brew Pub ... I thought I was in Germany having the local 'pils. Average as measured by someone well exposed to local German national, in country pils beers BUT a surprise to get one on Pugent Sound. The Germans would like this one, on tap of course! Bold, and so heady --- it's spitting it out big-time just like the old country brews in upper Bavaria. Smooth flavorful, hoppy going in and coming out.

Tap at the brewery 11/29/13
Light pour, grassy nose with just a slight sour tinge. Hops are forward but this isn’t dry like the best of pilsners. OK.

Draft at the brewpub in LaConner. Came a very light yellow color with a thin white head. Nose mild with grassy hops. Light body and mouthfeel. Flavor mild with a good balance of hops and malts. Light bitter finish. True to style and easy drinking.

Stylistically, this one seemed a bit off. Even if it were trying to be a Bohemian Pilsner. For one, it was undercarbonated. And for two, it was way too sweet and yeasty, with big notes of bread dough and sweet bread; and hops took a back seat. Subtle flowery hop aromas were nice, but bitterness was too mild to balance things out. Overall it was drinkable, but unexciting and on the fringe of the style.

This was a completely unbalanced take on this style. Has a honey sweet maltiness, with noble hops aromas throughout. Thin, earthy and vegetal on the palate.

very sweet aroma, not creamed corn like many pils, but a bright candied sugar aroma that dominates any hop aroma that may be there. light yellow/gold, approaches clear on the edges, minimal head. very still. i would vote for a law that both bans screwtops and requires bottle openers on every keychain. all i get here is the sweet syrupy pale malt character with no hop balance. hmm.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
6/28/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is low, with light sour malt and not much else. Appearance is clear straw with almost no white head. Flavor is slightly noble hop forward with some pils sourness but very low sweetness; quite out of balance. Mouthfeel is low bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, badly balanced and it being served warm didn’t help. Although, it should have brought out more of that missing malt character.
