Golden lager, perfectly balanced malt and hop characteristics. Won the gold medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival for "European-Style Pilsner."

Nice simple apple juice like fruity yeasty malt aroma. Clear medium gold color. Nice crispness, yet a bit thin. Lightly hopped, but I thought this was actually a pretty decent pilsner and was one of the better beers at Tenaya Creek.

Draft: most micro / craft brewers struggle with the style of beer, no room for error. Food Pairing: Cheese quesadillas.

Very watery, weak, and almost flavorless except for a slight woody taste. Supposedly this won gold at the GABF one year...I’ve never given too much credit to GABF wins, but this had to be either a different beer or a bad keg.

It think they called it a "European Pilsener", that explains the gold at the GABF.....taste was reminiscent of water.

(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Fairly weak pils. More in the style of a continental lager. No malt hop to be found.

fiveacestx (825) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
On tap at the brewery - light clear yellow, small head, sweet aroma with an eggshell taste. Light body and kind of a sour finish. There are better beers at TC.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2004

Wittales (733) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Appearance was clear yellowish gold with diminishing creamy bubbly white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are soft pils malt, sweet corn, lite spicy hops. Taste are spicy earthy hops with smooth soft pils malt with slight corn and soft water profile. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light body, then short balanced smooth finish. A good example of an American pils.
