COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Friesian Pilsener is a pale golden colored lager, brewed to quench the summer thirst of the many worthy denizens of the Great Pacific Northwest. This Pilsener is medium bodied, brewed with a truly authentic Pilsener malt and a large percentage of Munich malt to create a beer with the classic German Pilsener character. In the traditional method, we have brewed this Leavenworth Beer with imported German and Czech hops for a crisp, assertive hop bitterness and aroma.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2008
On tap@ Bailey’s Taproom (Portland) Deep golden orange color with great white head that laces quite well. Very spicy and hoppy, saison-like aroma; with floral and grassy notes, some graininess. Good malty body with touch of sugar-like sweetness up front that’s effortlessly balanced by a very floral bitter hop finish. Soft and smooth mouthfeel despite strong carbonation. Great domestic Pils!

BrewDad (5085) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Tap - Fish Brewery - Olympia, WA
Aroma – Light malt, with some hops. A typical pils.
Appearance – Golden in color, clear, with a nice head
Flavor – This was a light ale with a good overall lawnmower style taste. No hops to really taste.
Palate – Dry in the finish crisp and easy to drink
Overall –Served in the correct glass way to go FISH. I thought it was a easy lawnmower beer. Not bad good for those looking for a good beer and something cold, yellow and wet.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Grainy, corn-like aroma, slightly sour. Kepps a solid head, appearance is dead on for this style. Unfortunately, flavor is a bit too musty and earthy, possible oxidization.
