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.

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.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Light gold, the aroma is a bit grassy. Dry, herbal with light pale malt character...authentic north German and good balance. Dry finish. The malts seem American, but I like the noble hops.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Tap at Provisions Market. Big white foam on clear straw. Brilliant, glowing. Big lacing. Nose is fresh dough, lemon, bright cracker and snappy malt. Taste is on track for pils, soft dough and lemon. Quenching. Just a tad apple and soapy. But very good.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 draft. batch 2 (all hallertauer). unfiltered lightly hazed yellow body. crisp and dry with a floral hop character than resembles dryer sheets. hallertauer seems rightly balanced between clean/bright and musty/rustic. acidic and crisp, thirst-quenching and delicious. awesome pils.

BMan1113VR (7854) - 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.

bb (6851) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 6, 2011
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.
