UPDATED: AUG 18, 2019 Can, care of Joe. Needed this pils tick after seeing its score on the ol RB. Color is darker golden clear with large and lasting white head. Impressive lacing. Nose and flavor are super clean, reminds me of a more complex Hip Czech from Victory. Spiced Saaz, grass, flowers, and malt. Mouthfeel is medium to fuller for the style which is nice.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 500 mL bottle. Slight haze. Golden body. Smells of soft pilsner malt and floral hops. Quite malty on the nose. Tastes of an equally hefty malt flavor. A touch sweet at first, a little bready, and then a substantial hop flavor starts to bitter it. Just shy of aggressive. Spicy hops cut the sweetness back. Finish is equal parts malt and bitterness. Really well-made pilsner that maintains its American aspects while still respecting its roots.

Poured into a footed pilsner glass. Tall white thick creamy head, receding slowly. Clear (slight haze) bright golden color with columns of bubbles rising. Beautiful looking pilsner. Aroma of bread and spice. Mild grass. Moderate mouth feel, crisp, tingly. Taste is as the aroma: bready malts, spice, with a slight hops bittering in the middle, growing into the bready/grassy finish, leaving a moderately bitter aftertaste, which lingers for awhile. Just about spot on for the style. A top notch American-brewed Czech pilsner. fiery1 (3282) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2018
500ml bottle @ Erik's. Pours an almost clear light golden colour with a small white head. Nose is grainy, some hay, and hints of hops. Flavour is crackery with a straightforward hop bitterness. Medium to light bodied and mild carbonation. Decent thejackpacker (1592) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2018
Bottle from Whole Foods Portland. Although it is a great looking and very smooth beer, I found the whole experience a bit dissapointing compared to what I expected. It lacked biterrness which is classic to a pilsner. A nice one for the distance maybe and not rough but best in the world? Leighton (27475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2018
Bottle at Bottlecraft - San Diego. Pours clear gold with a frothy, pure white head. Nice aroma, a mix of crisp biscuits, grass, sun-kissed hay. Light sweet flavour with more crispy biscuits decent grassy bitterness, bread, crunchy grain. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Well balanced finish, further biscuits, balancing grassy hops, accents of citrus peel. Great stuff overall. andrewje41 (5998) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2017
For some reason, I never rated this incredible pils. I've had it in multiple situations, states, formats, and I guess I never really believed that a pils could be so good, that it is a clear standout on a draft board full of big beers. I remember picking up a couple bottles in Portland a year or two ago, and killed them all without even thinking about stopping to take notes. A truly cravable pilsner, which makes it above most others in the style. Enjoyed this on draft last night at Bottleworks, along with Prufrockstar, who is actually the person who first introduced me to Heater Allen as a brewery. Cheers to that! Brought a bottle home to enjoy along with some football. No shortage in flavor in this pils. A slightly rich, bready malt background. A slight cloudy, golden pour. Inviting straw and bread malts on the nose. Ultimate refreshment, with no flaws in flavor whatsoever, no matter how hard I look to find one. Really could drink this stuff all day. With distro beginning in Seattle, and 500 mL bottles going for 4 bucks a pop, I can make this a reality. Can't rave about this lager enough.
