COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A touch of European tradition comes to Alaska with this pilsner-style lager. Through a special selection of imported malts, blended with premium European Hops, Silver Gulch Pilsner Lager has a smooth, full-bodied taste with a clean finish and a crisp noble hop character.

Grumbler purchase from Breeze-IN, Juneau AK. Welcome to Juneau, Silver Gulch. This was poured into a flared pilsener glass. The appearance was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck thin around the glass. The smell started off somewhat grassy and grainy with an ample amount of sweet corn and then a light sweet bread. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine mainly sweet and somewhat grassy. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a smooth capability of gracing my tongue adequately. This was definitely sessionable. Overall, for a pilsener this was pretty good and I would recommend to pilsener lovers.

This is dull gold, with a slightly sulphury pale malt character, and off-dry finish. Ok but unrefined pils.

Draft Old Notes (Humpy’s ANC)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of sweetness. Taste of the same with some grains and slight hops. This light bodied brew is not bad.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden with fluffy/frothy white head. Aroma is soapy, soggy sour grain and buttery malt. Taste is metallic hop forward that subsides into grain and soft malt.

Crystal clear golden coloured body with a very light glow and a thin and very fast-dying white head. Aroma of metal, light malt, grass, cardboard and a touch of alcohol. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic notes at first then fade to a malty note with some grassy hops, a herbal flavour and a touch of alcohol at the tail end. Aftertaste shows metal, light hops, alcohol and a good herbal and grassy dryness. Overall, much better than most pils, with some actual hops used, a drying note and a good balance of flavours, albeit with a little metal and alcohol noticeable too. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega on 26-June-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 17-July-2011.

12 oz. bottle from La Bodega in Anchorage; pours clear, light gold with trace white head; fizzy carbonation with stale lemons, crackers, corn and stale grains; quite watery and essentially flavorless

12oz bottle carted back from La Bodega. Pours a crystal clear golden with a pillowy white head. Cracker wheat, floral honey and some vegital notes. Sweet fireweed honey, floral grassiness finishing with cooked veggies...missing that sharp/crispness of the noble hops. In all fairness, the bottle may be a touch old.
