[1106-20080217] Tap @ Elysian Fields (Seattle, WA). Mild yeasty aroma. Clear, light orange brown body with a quick bubbly white head. Big grainy wake-up yeasty bread flavour has noticeable alcohol. Medium body. Average. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Pours hazy light amber with a firm white head that leave concentric rings on my glass. Light-to-medium body and full carbonation. Maybe not a great example of the style, but a nicely sessionable beer. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on October 17, 2007. Pours a thin white hea and a clear golden body. Nose of light Saaz hops and a bready malt. Flavour is nicely balanced and very fresh. I like the thickness of the palate with a mild bitterness in the finish. I thought this was pretty good. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2007
on tap-pours a white head that laces and slightly hazy yellow color. Aroma is lemon/light hops, secondary barnyard wheat/grain. Taste is bitter, sweet, crisp. OK effervescence at the end. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at Elysian on Capitol Hill in Seattle on 7/12/07. Clear gold with a medium white head, looks like a good Pils. Grainy, grassy aroma with a hint of hoppiness. Medium body, but a touch of stickiness on the palate, not quite as clean as I like to see with a Pils. Pretty decent bitterness over a light malty base, but with some soapiness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but just a little off in flavor and mouthfeel for a Pils.

Draft at Elysian Fields. Pours medium gold, crystal clear, with definite bubble columns rising. Moussy thick white film. Kind of a mess on the nose--butter and dust and not so much of the grass that would be so nice to find here. Mid-palate is full and lovely with lots of spice and pepper and grass. Clean and easy drinking like a pils, but has sooo much American hop across the finish--a nice, clean, lingering cling, that. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2006
Pours with a golden body, topped by a thick, white head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet bitter and grassy with a grainy note. Light bodied, dry and crisp. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Gold colour with thin white head. Nice hop on aroma, bit of lager malt. Ooh that saaz flavour, I just don’t like, but it’s not stale and that crispness on the end is good. Competent, well put together. Saazy pilsener with great hop finish. Good pilsener DYCSoccer17 (3706) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2006
5 ounce sample on tap at Tangletown Publick House in Seattle. Citrus, perfumey, floral aroma. I also detect some slight lemon-like acidity. Doesn’t smell overly like a pils, but aroma is decent, nonetheless. Transparent golden color with a frothy whitish head and really nice lacing. Hoppy bitter start with more floral hops present. Dought and biscuity malts in the middle with a bit of lingering bitter hops to finish. Very hoppy, doesn’t really seem like a true pils to me. billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Tap. Hazy yellow w diminishing white head. Min lace. Aroma was weak. Flavor of Urquel type pils with the minerals noticable. A bit of sweetness noticable early on but fading quickly into a nice tart bitterness that lasts into the finish. Just a touch viscous and creamy. Nice pils flavor for me. It hit the spot with a caesar salad on this hot day. If I’m in the mood for a decent pils, I will not hesitate to enjoy more.
