Reid (2554) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pint glass at home from a growler filled at "b2"Tap house in Salem. $12 a growler Bright light golden /yellow beer with a large thick and bubbly pure white head. Aroma is weird im getting all the typical lager malt aromas but also what appears to be burning rubber..maybe its from the yeast..its not unpleasant just strange. No burning rubber in the taste just fruity ,juicy malts and a wee bit of floral hop.Quite balanced but i know see that PNW pilsners are more on the fruity side and the nice saaz bitterness is amiss. Mouth feel is fine i suppose its easy to drink. Ok beer... I guess this is the 4th or 5th PNW pils i have had and all have been underwhelming for a pils lover. Not their fault..mine for expecting a good German or Bohemian style pils.

Golden with a fine white head. Very floral aroma. Moderately bitter with a firm malt background. A somewhat unique pilsner with its flowery bouquet, but it hits all the right style points.

Can in Seattle. Perfect can to have at a BBQ on one of the nicest days of the year. Pretty classic pils, rich clean flavor. This is fairly rich and well put together. Fantastic hop bite and flavor.

Very nice traditional-style pils though perhaps just a touch sweet. Hops are spicy and a little floral.

Draft at the brewpub. Straw yellow in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of white bread dough, aloe, and mild herbal hop. Flavors are of fat pilsner malt, faint lemon, grass, and soap. Smooth on the palate, to the point of being a touch watery. A bit too low in bitterness (and perhaps carbonation) for me.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Clear 15.25-oz. pilsner From: Bier:Thirty Bottle & Bistro in Boise, Idaho Price: $2.99 Purchased: April 21, 2017 Consumed: April 24, 2017 Reviewed as: German Pilsner Misc.: Canned on March 20, 2017 Picked this up with four others at Bier:Thirty on a recent work trip to Boise after getting a random 6-pack of cans earlier at Whole Foods. Had heard good things about Crux and I’m a sucker for a good pilsner so it was really a no-brainer picking it up. Had high hopes going in. Poured a very light cloudy color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky white head. Tons of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Excellent foamy lacing. World-class foamy retention. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled sharp pilsner notes from the get go with spicy Czech Saaz, grass, hay, corn, cracker, biscuit and light lemon zest leading the way. (Smell - 4.00) First thought on the taste was how smooth it was. More lager than pilsner, but then got those Czech Saaz spicy hops. Also grass, hay, cracker, biscuit, herbal, sharp lemon pepper and hints of corn cereal. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Thin texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, clean, crisp finish. (Feel - 4.25) Just a really good pilsner. Could get after a few of these on a hot summer day. (Overall - 4.00) 4.04 90 A-

Tap at Hanshin. Very pale gold with a thick, medium head. Malty nose, crackers and decent noble hops. Malty and with, lemony hops, some DMS sadly. full and smooth.
