4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp and clean, cereal grains, apple and pear, subtle herbal notes. This is a go to Pils for me next to Heater Allen’s Pils. It’s refreshing, clean, and obviously great with cheese and food in general.

A straight up delicious Pilsner. Probably the best NW pils you can get tied with the Commons. Clear and beautifully pale gold. All spiced pears, apple cider and herby hops. An underrated beer for Upright since they’re more known for special releases.

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.

Pint at "b2" taphouse in Salem.
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
