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.

madvike (3045) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2012
On tap at Evoe - Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light dough, honey, pale malt, with gentle floral hops. Taste is the same, real gentle hops with a light doughy malt, herbal hops on the finish, and a little mineral dryness. Light, effervescent body. This beer is the truth.

Dont discount this beer. Amazing pils. Drinkable with noble hop character and light cracker malts. Floral/grassy notes shine through. Dry yet balanced. I loved it.

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Sampled on tap at Upright tasting room, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of straw, grass and corn - generic. Flavour is much more inviting, with dry grassy hops, dry toasted bread and light citrus. The dry hops linger pleasantly on the finish. Very well-made pilsner.
