IndianaRed (5204) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2017
On Tap at Elizabeth Station, Bellingham. Classic light clear golden witha lively but short live white head. Fairly well hopped. Crisp and sharp. Nice balanced with plenty of flavor.

Capa (3716) - DC, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2017
Draught at the brewery. Golden with a white head. Full of noble hops, some lemon notes, herbal, and some sweet cracker malt to hold it all together. Medium bodied. Finish is clean with nice hop zest. Enjoyable from start to finish.

stevoj (5958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle from HomeBrewStuff. Clear golden, active carbonation, huge fluffy head. Malty, grainy aroma, gets fuller in taste. Delicious! Only knock against this is it could use a bit more hops on the back end. Pretty tasty though.

Another winner form Fremont Brewing. A pilsner with great flavor smooth easy drinking lightly hopped no bitter aftertaste would recommend.

onceblind (11135) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Clear bright shiney golden under a foamy white head. Big delightful cracker and peppery grassy hop nose that’s so pilsnerish and bright and clean. Bright grassy and lager Pilsner malt flavor that’s crisp and not too peppery or bready, but definitely has those qualities, with a light bitterness. Clean and sunshiney.

poisoneddwarf (2710) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Bomber. Aroma is briefly skunky, wet hayfields, bread. Pours clear golden with a collapsing white head. Taste is herbal hoppy bitter, clean, crisp, refreshing. Really nice. I was kind of skeptical after noting the appearance and the aroma, but it all came together for me after the first drink. Top-notch pils.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle. No Freshness date indicated. Pour with a mostly clear yellow hue with some noticeable flocculated particulate (not haze, but particles) in the second 1/2 of the bottle (even while trying to decant carefully). Minimal white head with some staying power and lace. Aromas show a hint of sulfur, pils malt breadiness, slightly doughy with a noble spicy hop character in the background. Mild alcohol as well. Malt notes are most dominant, but overall impression is balanced. Flavors are bready, pils malt, medium grassy - Saazer type hops, mild mineralic fullness. Rounded mouthfeel with high carbonation, medium bitterness (well balanced) with some light residual malt sweetness. Alcohol warmth/flavor is a bit more than I’d want in the style. Overall a solid pilsner that I’d gladly drink another pint of. Would love to try this on tap, as my biggest complaints would be the appearance (the deposits/floaties) and I’d expect this bottle would have a slightly reduced hop character vs. draft (age/D.O./ect).

Rating #1922 - 2015.09.25 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 2, Beer 21. Clear yellow pour, with a moderate white foam, very carbonated. Aroma is quite pleasant, floral hops and grains.. Taste is quite smooth, Saazy bite, and a decent malty sweetness. Balanced.

Pours a bright gold with minimal white head. Nose is lightly floral, with some bready yeast. Flavor is the same, bready with a hint of floral hops. Medium bodied and carbonated. It’s a fine pilsner, but I’m not going to go out of my way to find it again
