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.

Prufrockstar (679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Upright a few weeks ago - from notes. Pours clear gold/straw-colored with white head. Aroma: Floral, with just a bit of sulfur. Smells clean, fruity, and crisp. Taste: fruity again; lightly bitter, crisp and tasty. Noticeable hop presence. Overall: easy-drinking, light, flavorful lager.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 15, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours clear pale yellow with a light floral aroma and a nice white head. There is a slightly soapy rich pale malt flavor with a lot of yeast characteristics.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
On tap at City Beer. Appears to be a Kellerpils. Pours with a hazy, murky pale yellow body with a small white head that leaves a good ring around the glass after a while. Aromas are bready, grainy, grassy. Hop component is a bit odd (blueberries, mint, earth and fruit). Strange with a bit of a noble hop character. Hay and pils malt. Flavors are dry, bitter, grassy, clean fermentation, lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles, dry and a light fruity hop component. Crisp.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Growler. Pours clear pale gold with a good sized white head. Good retention and minimal lace. Grass and floral hop aroma with clean pilsener malt. Light bitter flavor, dry with minimal sweetness. Light body and crisp bitter finish. An excellent example of the style.

writerljberg (487) - Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2013
On tap. A: Straw color, lacking in head. Lots of bubbles. N: Ample pilsner malt and hint of hops. A touch of musty grape. T: Leans towards the bitter with a light touch of sweetness. M: Full mouthfeel. O: Not as refreshing or interesting as Heater Allen, but very clean and good for a hoppier crossover in the style.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Soon to be a year round beer. Crisp aroma and flavour, in a clear yellow gold pour. Lekker hay aroma. Lekker hop finish. Draught only.

Dratf. Straw colored beer with a white head. Hay and light summer fruit aroma. Hay and summer fruit flavor wtih light malt and light mineral notes. Medium bodied. Light summer fruit lingers with light hay. Would swear the hop profile isn’t all tettnang or hallertau, but could be wrong.
