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.

On tap. A: Straw color, lacking in head. Lots of bubbles. N: Ample pilsner malt and hint of hops. A touch of musty grape. T: Leans towards the bitter with a light touch of sweetness. M: Full mouthfeel. O: Not as refreshing or interesting as Heater Allen, but very clean and good for a hoppier crossover in the style.

Nice hoppy aroma, very bitter spicy dank, yum. This was great on the hot day I drank it, very drinkable. I know Alex has done a couple of versions of this and I assume I had the second for this review as it was far hoppier than I remembered it being from my first tasting earlier this summer.

Tap at Upright. FRESH, is the word. Wonderful, pils flavor with great tasting hops and bitterness. Only light bodied, but that’s how a pils is. Christ I like a good pils in the hot weather. Yeah, mineral is a good descriptor, so is crisp, & thirst quenching.

Crisp and clean, cereal grains, apple and pear, subtle herbal notes. This is a go to Pils for me next to Heater Allen’s Pils. It’s refreshing, clean, and obviously great with cheese and food in general.

Bright pine notes compliment bitterness of the hop. Light golden color if a bit cloudy. Crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A straight up delicious Pilsner. Probably the best NW pils you can get tied with the Commons. Clear and beautifully pale gold. All spiced pears, apple cider and herby hops. An underrated beer for Upright since they’re more known for special releases.
