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.

hazy gold, thin oily white cap, decent lacing. Soft cereal and dough grain nose, lightly grassy, too waxy. Flavor is more rounded, dough and grass through the front, mid has bright bitterness a la victory, finishing with tons of dough, light peppery grass finish, high effervescence accenting grains, bit of unwanted plastic in the end.

10oz sample on tap at Pangaea in Sacramento. The aroma on this is fairly faint with some light mineral and lemon. Not much else at first, but hints of urinal cake present themselves as this breathes a little bit. Moderately hazy yellow body--a very interesting color. It’s borderline neon. There is a nice fizzy white head present. A beautiful beer. Starts with a ton of mineral flavors--too much? Some perfumey flavors follow the minerals in the middle. Finishes with some really herbal, spicy, and aggressive hop bitterness. Refreshing, and a bit different.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Grassy, noble hoppy, biscuit, lightly chalky, minerally, and floral aroma. Taste is bright and clean - grass, snappy malt, crackers, light cookie, minerals, and straw with a crisp bite on the backend. Medium body with high carboantion. Really awesom pils!

On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light with pilsner highlights. Some corn, malts, and bitterness from the bland hops. Average body and mouthfeel.

Draught at the brewery. Straw with a thick white head. Floral and spicy noble hop aroma with just a touch of grain. The flavor is very dry and bitter with a big herbal and spicy hop kick and the slimmest of pils malt flavors. Very dry and light in body. Honestly, this felt over-hopped to me, with bitterness pretty much overwhelming the very dry, light malt flavor and body. I can see liking this a lit more with significantly less emphasis on bittering hops but just an much nice lat hop character.

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.

I was really impressed by this. Worked perfectly with pizza. A bit of citrus hoppiness and metallic notes. Poured light yellow.
