COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silver City Brewing Co. has recaptured the original flavor of this Bohemian lager. 100% barley malt, imported Saaz variety hops from Eastern Europe and uniquely suited soft, pure water of the Kitsap Peninsula provide that classic Pilsner character. True Bohemian yeast works slowly in the beer throughout its long, cold fermentation process and gives Gold Mountain Pilsner that smooth, clean, classic lager flavor.

From tap at Taphouse Grill. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild cornish and vague butterish. Mild toasted malty, grassy and vague butterish flavoured. Bitter and dry, crisp grassy finish.

MartinT (7549) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This Pilsener’s pleasant leafy hop bitterness is preceded by pils malts, leading to a nicely drinkable example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the pale blond.
-Hop flavor was also herbal at times.
-A tad of sulphur seemed to appear next to the hop fruitiness.
-This may not have been the crispest or most engaging of Pilseners, but it was mighty fine nonetheless.

On tap at Naked City.

Draft at Naked City. Well....yeah. Not really an awful lot happening here, and, no, that’s not the style’s fault. Pilseners can pack a little flavalistic punch if they try. This one’s not trying as hard as it really should. Or, perhaps more cynically, it’s trying hard to please people who are frightened of pleasure. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a loose, wispy grayish film on top. Not much on the nose. Not corn, not grass, not even fusels or butter or anything. Just whatever your hand happens to be smelling like, which certainly can’t be shared with the group here. Somewhat crisp light watery body, somewhat flat and indifferent watery body. A little bit in between the two. Mid-palate manages to forget to show up, and then there’s a little goose of earthy darkish hop flavor near the finish so you don’t order another round of tonic water by mistake. At least there are no flaws in the execution of this beer. They just forgot to buy grain and hops the day before. Maybe they’re still sitting there, and they’ll use ’em in the next batch.

Bomber. Pours clear bright gold with a thick and lacy white head. Aroma of biscuit, grass. Medium-light body and carbonation. The taste starts sweet with nutty biscuit and finishes crisp with earth and grass. This beer is dialed in for what I want in a Pilsner.

riversideAK (5563) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Bottle. Aroma is somewhat bready with some ceral notes too. Some grassy hops as well. Pours light golden with big bubbles and no head. Flavors of bread, cereal, and grass. Nice pleasant sweetness. A little crisp, but sweeter in the finish than most pilsners.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Light gold to straw, sweet cereal grain aroma, cottonwood head. Somewhat clean, though a little metallic. Golden softer flavors, a little dense with sweet grain. The hops kind of glide through with a creamy body, I was hoping for something a little more snappy, this reminds me more of a helles.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2008
On tap at the brewery in Silverdale, WA--Poured a deep golden body with a pillowy white top. Creamy nose for a pils with a nice nutty and spicy hops character. This is one of the best Pilsners I have ever had. Honestly!
