COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When creating this beer, we set out to create a lager that has its heart in the Northwest. This beer has a firm bitterness with flavor and aroma impressions of pine, citrus and fresh cut grass which is the signature of American hops while still on their best behavior. A new classic, a NW Pilsner will all the implied contradictions.

Typical yellow clear body to the lager..with a nice thick white head. more piney/grassy hop than expected for a pils..well sharper than expected but still nice. Very hoppy at first..grassy/grapefruit then fades fast leaving relics of nutty malts.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light fruity citric hops, faint sweetness, and a clean grainy base. Pretty good.

writerljberg (627) - Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap in Sellwood. A: Light clear copper with a placid ring of white head. N: Malt sweetness and some light hops bringing out a nice caramel and pineapple along with straw. T: Tastes more like an IPA than a pils. Heavy hopping leads to noticeable bitterness. M: Very resinous with a medium mouthfeel. A bit harsh and astringent. O: I was going to ask if I was served the wrong beer, then I noticed the IBU of 50 on the board. While this might pass as a decent APA or IPA, this is too off what I want in a pils.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear medium-light gold body with a short white head. Aroma is a cross between American and German hops: lemon / spice suggests German varieties but the garlic and onion and fresh-cut pine lumber and pineapple rind suggests American varieties. Medium-light body is a little chewy and goopy. Moderately sweet and heavily bitter with somewhat husky pilsner malt. Brash and astringency onion and rice cake and garlic bread and tropical gum finish.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On tap at PDX. Poured one finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is a pleasant grain and grapefruit mixture. The taste has a solid bitterness from lemon and pine. One sided but great. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An enjoyable pils with more bitterness than most.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Tap at Laurelwood on Sandy, PDX, 25/05/13. Clear pale golden with a good sized white head. Nose is light hops, citrus, fresh and clean. Taste comprises cereals, fresh hops, citrus, grass. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp refreshing finish. Hopped US style pils diverging from the trad and making for a tasty beer more APA meets pils.

Dogbrick (7570) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sample at the Laurelwood Public House at PDX. Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and grapefruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a zesty citrus and hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Rating molto basso, non capisco perchè... Si risulta forse un pò troppo amara ma questo non ne pregiudica la bontà! Azzardo in maniera più contenuta mi ha ricordato la my antonia!
