Formerly Chatoe Rogue Good Chit Pilsner.
Good Chit Pilsner is made with Rogue Farm barley that we Floor-Malted in small batches. Floor Malting is an old fashioned, 8 day process that includes steeping, germination, raking, roasting, bagging and hands-on love 24 hours a day. "Chit" refers to the start of the rootlets that emerge from the embryo of the kernel once steeping is complete and germination begins.

Not bad for a pilsner- or a lager in general. Especially not bad for a czech pilsner. Not my favourite style, but this offering is a nice summertime sipper. Pours a distinct straw color with a decent white head. definite citrus on the nose and on the palate. has a biscuity sweetness to it from the malt, bit of an astrigent finish to it (40 IBU). Overall a refreshing good choice for the afternoon of July 4th.

A bready, yeasty malt and noble hops notes of grass and peach. Very smooth and drinkable and fairly traditional.

As Chatoe Rogue Good Chit Pilsner, older bottle tasted at Delirium Hoppy Loft. Very stable and lacing, yellowish white, moussy head, cloudy ochre blonde colour. Aroma of a lot of ’noble’ hops, grass, white pepper, orange zest, unripe peach, bread, apple peel, hint of limoncello. Malt fruitiness in the mouth, bits of apple and pear, soft grainy and bready middle phase with powdery yeastiness increasing in the end, where a long, drying, grassy and peppery hop bitterness manifests itself. Very interesting interpretation of Pilsener but unfiltered, so from a purely technical point of view, this seems closer to a Keller- or perhaps even Landbier.

Very pale yellow pour, decent to thin white head. Nose is a combo of Pils malt and floral hops. Bitter. Middle is bread and damp grass. Medium bodied. Finish is more hop bitterness. Nice.

Bomber from the fridge, Lancaster pa. Pours an unfiltered cloudy yellow, Nice for a Pilsner! Rogue beers always have a unique flavor to me. I can never quite put my finger on it, but I know it when I taste it. This Pilsner has lots of flavor and personality. The usual straw Pilsner taste with a bit of hops in the background, but the unfiltered nature gives it an extra flavor that is hard to quantify. Recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 July 2015, tap at Rogue Ales in Portland Airport. yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. served with a lemon wedge which i removed. nose is, obviously, lemon and sweet straw malt. thin body, mildly fizzy and mildly creamy. lemon juice, sweet, some straw malt, not bitter at all. actually nice. i think the lemon wedge probably made this better.

This beer pours cloudy and has a nice thick white head that is very light and foamy. Flavor is mildly hay and a bit grassy.
