4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear pale yellow with a white head. The aroma is bready and crackery with earthy spice, herbs and grass - nice. It has a light crisp body with a light amount of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts drier than the aroma with crackers and crustiness and some spicy hops. The finish has dried grass, sulfur and dry maltiness. Solid pils.

Bottle from QFC U. Village
I just love it that more and more US breweries are starting to brew solid pilsners. This is a quality addition to that lineup. Relatively light pour for a pils, nice fluffy white head. Super grassy nose, noble hops and some skunk piss. The flavor dances between bready malt almost pushing toward sweetness, and dry noble hops. Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. While distinctively American, this is not an overhopped west coast reinterpretation of a pils with something to prove. It’s just a really solid beer.

On tap at the Platypus. Pours a pale golden color with a fine head that sticks to the glass. Rich malty flavor and some stronger hop bitterness than usual for a pilsner.

Clear straw, dry, has a nice herbal dryness, a classic north Geman pils with character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is barnyard dry grain. Nice.
The taste is a dull bitterness throughout.
The texture is crisp with nice fizz.
It’s nice, though it doesn’t have the sharp pilsner bitter flavor.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has a bit of corn to it, but a pleasant amount of grass and floral notes as well. Taste is a bit bitter and quite crisp, and very pleasant to drink. Me gusta.
