COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We just released a draft-only batch called Engelberg Pilsener, named after Mt.Angel. It’s German-style: light, dry and full of hoppy flavor. We made a simple single malt (Canadian pilsener malt) and single hop (Mt. Angel-grown tettnanger) recipe using a Munich lager yeast. The finished beer came out remarkably dry so for the second batch set to be released around the third week of July we coaxed just a bit more mouthfeel and residual sugar out of it and used a different hop variety, hallertauer mittlefruh. The beer is currently on tap in the tasting room and at a handful of bars around town. When the second batch is ready both will be on hand to taste side-by-side. Editor’s note: used to be all-tettnanger, now is tettnanger and hallertauer.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews, a day after visiting the brewery for the first time, and not trying this. How the hell did they make this so good? I have so much appreciation for a brewery taking a less appealing style of beer and making it awesome. Light golden pour with a rocky foam head. Sweet lemon aroma that slightly overpowers the grain. Light body, but full of flavor. Soft grains, dominated by a nice fruit character. Long, lingering crisp flavor. Quintessential pilsner. Loved it.

after4ever (7411) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Draft at SB. Pours a very slightly hazy burnished bright gold with a loose and fizzy platinum blonde head. Herbal, grassy nose. Creamy medium body with bright and lively carb. Herbal mid-palate more than grassy, but still shows nice grass notes along with a solid cracker underpinning. Crisp light finish. Very, very nice beer.
