Unfiltered straw coloured golden pour wearing a more than fair white head. From the looks, I already expect greatness. From the look on my face, I have been served. It’s a very clean pls malt nose that I encounter on the first whiff where hay and the softest breadiness are in fine equilibrium. Refreshing grassy, herbal and slightly spicy bitterness comes with the cleansing, crisp carbonation to provide the kind of finish I like: the one that tells you the next sip will always be welcome and will never be less tasty or interesting than the last one. Saturation just does not happen with that type of beer. Perfect sunny day lager, dry and straightforward. Unsurprisingly, I’m in total disagreement with the majority here. That’s one mighty fine lager, but perhaps not responding to the average wet dreams of a Portland visitor. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2013
Can from a Portland, OR supermarket. Gold body with medium, puffy head. Nose is straw, corny, with malts. Taste is hoppy, buttery with bitter in the finish. Pretty decent. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Tap at Hopworks - clear gold - a bit sweet forth style, but with a nice hop crispness to balance - pils malt is soft and clean - a bit of a honey finish, with a sligh peppery hop bit and mineral character on the end - decent. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2008

Aroma – Light Pils aroma with lots of malts.
Appearance – Light golden color, Nice light head and clear.
Flavor – Good pils flavor. This was easy to drink with a good use of hops and malts.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – A very nice Pilsner. I like the flavors. This will be a great hot day out riding beer.
Can from Ezo Beer served in a pint glass. It pours a clear gold with a thin weak head. It has a mild fruity aroma with west grainy notes. The taste is sweet & fruity with a crisp finish. More blond ale than lager to me flavor wise but OK.

On tap at the brewery. Sparse note: yellow, light lager, grain, good for style. 6.6 SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 25, 2015
Can: Poured a golden with white fluffy head. Aroma is soggy cardboard and grass. Taste is very bitter, wet upfront and corn grain finish. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2015 Have to re-rate. Kind of a staple now for the non-geek part of family gatherings. Big cans are a nice staple beer to have in the fridge. Sample tray. Gold. Grain and alcohol scent. Flavour is a little malt liquorish. IndianaRed (4633) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2016
On Tap clear golden. thin wispy white head. standard light grain slightly corny aromas and flavors. Under hopped for a pilsener i think but mellow and smooth maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a bit sweet for me, with some corn and grains coming off it. Taste actually is a bit bitter up front, with only a slightly sweet finish. Decently crisp, but I’m not a lager person.
