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 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.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy blond color, small head. The aroma is somehow vulgar, but the flavor is decent, some malt, cereals, and light residual sweetness; correct bitterness; the hops are a bit grassy.
Decent.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Pint at "b2" taphouse in Salem. $3.00 Simple yellow lager beer with a largish frothy purest white head. Good fresh grassy hop aromas, malt is caramel,bready,nutty Taste is very refreshing zingy,grassy,fruity hop predominates..very light tasing but far from boring . Good palate for the style went down well enough. Good simple lager would have been even better in high summer.

writerljberg (631) - 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.
