Draft pour pint at the fields location. Pours a darker copper color with a patchy foam cream head. Nearly absent grain aroma. Flavor is light and crisp as expected, but not a lot of flavor going on. A slightly offputting grain finish. Could be a while lot worse, but just more not my kind of beer. Drinkable for sure.

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.

Tap at brewpub. Phone rate. Pours a clear golden with a small offwhite head. Nice lace. Notes of stomped hay, dirty toast, lemongrass, and bread. Crisp. Good.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Major diacetyl here as this warms, especially in the flavor. Becomes undrinkable. Light hops at least partly cover up the butter. Tastes like bud with some decent czech hops added. Terrible.

DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 9, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 (22 oz bottle) A rather light flavored pilsener, which is surprising for a Pacific Northwest beer; Still, this is at least a dry, hops balanced pilsener in the PNW style, with a moderately bitter and dry finish; Fairly hoppy, and lightly malty nose; Light golden in color; Massively carbonated head when poured is off-white in color and very bubbly, and is supported by a fairly steady assault of carbonation bubbles, but as it gradually dies down, a large mesa-like formation is created by the head, and dense patches of lacing are left on the glass

This beer was a tad bit overly hopped. I have to agree with Per. This one has some flaws, sure, but alot of beers do, and I am not going to call it out on just a couple of complaints. Overall this is a very goo easy drinking pils, with a strong biscuity malt character. Some grassy hops, with a light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Not bad overall.

Reid (2541) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pint at Growl Movement in S.Salem. $4. Pours a typical pilsner light gold ,small white head. Nice aromas of grassy hop and biscuit malts..pleasing. Taste again is to style but on the fruitier side, nice hop profile. Good drinkable palate..not to thin but goes down a treat. Good pilsner..very drinkable.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 From the bottle 9/5/05

Pours a mid-range golden, almost clear with an amply-sized white head.

The aroma is grassy hops, a hint of lemon, and unfortunately, a swampy skunky muck. The taste is surprisingly bitter, with a blast of strong and bitter hops that, though unexpected in a pilsner, was not unpleasant. Unfortunately, the skunky murky flavor that followed was unpleasant, as is the metallic aftertaste that still remains in my mouth. As the beer warmed, the skunk got skunkier.

I’d like to like this beer, but I’ll have to try it again. This bottle just wasn’t any good. 6/3/5/3/10=2.7

Tap at Wild Ginger (the Olive Garden of Asian fusion, IMHO) in Seattle. Much, much better on tap than it was in the bottle. Entirely drinkable, enjoyable, hoppy and pretty crisp. 7/4/7/3/14 = 3.5. I’ll average them out.
