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.

Reid (1944) - Salem, 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.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Tap at Upright. Crystal clear pour with the slightest of white heads. Smells of yeast and grassy hops. Tastes like grassy hops with quite a bit of yeast flavor and some light lemon, decent bit of bread. Not a bad Pils, definitely fit my mood at the time as I was very full of food/beer from Breakside and Deschutes.

neepsntatties (1238) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Had this in July 2010 and forgot to rate it. Colour... hazy goldenrod with a thick head. Nose... eminently hoppy but in a floral sort of way with hints of honeysuckle. Palate... delightfully crisp and fizzy with beeswax, gently hops, lithe and supple floral notes and an ever so slight sweetness on the finish. This was one fabulous beer on the scorching hot day that I drank it, though it’d be fabulous anytime I’m sure!

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.

Growler. Pours clear pale gold with a good sized white head. Good retention and minimal lace. Grass and floral hop aroma with clean pilsener malt. Light bitter flavor, dry with minimal sweetness. Light body and crisp bitter finish. An excellent example of the style.
