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 (3119) - 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.

Tap at Hop Haven. Nice. Dry and wheaty, flour, lots of grain, little bit of lemon. Very refreshing. Something herbal in the aroma.

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.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
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.

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

Soon to be a year round beer. Crisp aroma and flavour, in a clear yellow gold pour. Lekker hay aroma. Lekker hop finish. Draught only.

Reid (2095) - 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.

Prufrockstar (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.
