Bottle... Poured clear, golden/yellow with a moderate white head that faded quickly to a thin ring around the surface of the beer. Nose had pungent and soapy hops. A little bit astringent on the nose. A little over carbonated, sort of vicious on the palate. Some sweetness and cracker like grains with hop bitterness that added earthiness, pine, and some citrus. Sort of meh. I don’t understand the point in bottling this Fresh Hop Pilsner. Maybe would be a great tap, one off experiment. SSSteve (4006) - - NOV 15, 2012
bottle. crystal clear gold under a frothy, white head. pale pilsner malt, gum and a bit of plastic. red apple skins, light fusels, gum, fresh floral hops. not overly hopped, like i first expected, but instead it’s a fittingly fresh hop addition. not something would i would drink regularly, but they did nice job with this. drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Not my cup of tea. Has kind of a funky stinky cheese aroma. Flavor’s a bit soapy bitter. NachlamSie (3597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from Liquor World. This has potential. It’s quite hoppy and dry with pleasing bite. There’s some skunk and hay too. The flavor has the cereal and woody bitterness. But there’s metallic, vegetal twang in the finish. This could be much better if not for the off flavors lurking. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2012
A traditionally inspired Pilsner with a Pacific NW touch. Locally grown hops are added to give the beer a unique flavor. 8% alc.

Bomber bought at Fred Meyer in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy golden with a medium white collapsing head; falls into a collar of big-bubbly foam and a little lace. Aroma is a bit skunky, hayfield, unimpressive. Taste starts out lightly sweet before becoming really bitter mid-palate and remaining that way through the long finish. Carbonation is softer than expected. Very flawed. Reid (2673) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2012
22oz bottle from S.Salem Freddys.$5.99
Typical pilsner..cooking oil yellow with a small bubbly white head.
Again pretty typical aromas, bready hop and a grassy hoppiness.
Not typical taste..starts off semi sweet and very malty like a helles lager, then gets some bitterness, but its not really that pleasant.like a slight battery acidity bitterness.,then fades to sweetness again. Odd
Mouthfeel is generally acceptable if not thick.
I judged this as a malt liquor and as such it is good..its a terrible pilsner however savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 18, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma of herbal tea, hay and bready pils malt. Flavor is malty without being sweet, medium hop bitterness, no alcohol and a very clean yeast profile. Light body with average carbonation. Nice easy drinking beer, drinks like a lower abv beer.

12/2/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Malty aromas with hops and floral notes. Hoppy flavors with some odd notions. troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Full grassy aroma with a pepper and citrus note. Tang in the flavour, some pepper and a peppery finish. Some grease in the mouthfeel. Not a bad lager, but doesn’t taste much like a pilsner
