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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Clear pale golden with a good sized white head.

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.
