COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
pFriem Pilsner is as refreshing and flavorful as its European cousin--and with aromas of fresh flowers and honey, we’ve managed to fit the Pacific Northwest into each bottle.

poisoneddwarf (2283) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 18, 2015
16.9 oz bottle. Aroma is grassy, fruity, doughy. Pours clear deep golden with a large white head with excellent retention; laces a little. Taste has a nice hoppy bitterness, some faint lemon. One of the best pilsners I’ve had.

hopwine (669) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Lightly toasted grain, rice, noble hop nose. Flavor is same, initial flash of saaz hops fades to a grainy sweetness, finishing woodsy/earthy. Simple, clean.

ClarkVV (5787) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draught at Matt’s in the Market, 11/4/15.
Lovely, bright, white grape juice color with a hint of copper. Good carbonation coursing upwards creating a white head with moderate retention.
Delicate floral hops, adding all sorts of aromatics, with light, fresh herbal accents. Just a touch of baked bread is noted in the aroma, with honey and light biscuit being prominent. Pretty much exactly what I’m looking for in a pilsner. Clean, with no flaw and not Americanized.
The flavor outdoes the aroma by a good margin, which is impressive. Fantastically tart white grape juice notes (a play between hop and the very lightly toasted grain) give way to a delicate honey sweetness that is in turn whisked away by tight carbonation as soft, floral hops linger pleasantly on the finish. Wonderfully attenuated and incredibly drinkable/refreshing. I found Pfriem to be much more successful on draught than in the bottle, which seems to be echoed by other ratings here. Didn’t find any soapiness that some mentioned, nor did I find there to be any excess of hop resin.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2015
A fresh grassy nose. Crisp clean and balanced in the mouth with a silky texture. The flavor of the malt is wonderfully intertwined with the hop character and bitterness. This beer doesn’t have stages, it is one glorious flow of flavor that twists and turns intricately.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Pale golden with a white head. Aroma is floral, noble, light sweet. Medium, crisp body. Flavor is earthy, czech inspired hopping, light sweet floral notes. Finish is dry and crisp. Very enjoyable pils.

Bottle. Colour...golden straw with a slight haze and a moderately thick head. Nose...opulently floral and gorgeously hopped with notes of citrus and fir needles. Palate...distinctively crisp and pleasingly hoppy with generous hits of pure pilsener flavours. The mid palate flavours are as present as they are at the front and the finish is long and luscious. This pils has ruthlessly shoved aside all others that I’ve tried, both old world and new, and it has fast become my most favourite go-to pils.

Hungover (96) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Damn near flawless! Light honey aroma, light blonde cloudy pour with slight head. Grainy but smooth. Not too much of a bite. A really classy beer, somewhat sticky. The carbonation is average, but it helps give the other flavors room on my palate. A real favorite of mine.

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Une belle clarté dans l’arôme et dans la superposition des céréales, chaque couche cache une fine membrane gazonnée, parfaite composition. Très croustillant, finale sèche, je me répète mais tout est propre.

Bottle from Homebrew Stuff... Pours clear straw golden.. Head doesn’t last along nearly enough, but not that big of a complaint.. Floral hoppiness.. slightly sweet pils maltiness. Complex/rich but still simple... very clean.. No flaws... incredibly drinkable.

LSAT Freedom Trip #199. Bottle shared at a tasting. Clear very pale golden, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of snappy noble hops and bready malt. The taste is herbal, grassy hops and biscuit malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.
