Thanks to Ben and Christian for this wonderful beer!--Poured a rich copper-golden body with a decent white head. Nose of bready malts and fresh fruity hops. A PNW take on the Czech Pils. Lots of floral notes and chewy malt character. I loved the amalgum of the two worlds’ brew styles. Very very nice beer!

I had this on tap while dining at HUB in Portland, OR. This is a rather hoppy pilsner, fantastic aroma and extremely crisp. Very easy drinking with this one, I wish I could take this home and drink while watching a baseball game.

Can:   Translucent golden, little frothy white head, light lacing.   Soft dusty grassy nose.   Crisp grassiness up front, clean, very light sweetness.   If this is Organic I am surprised as its not grainy or soily.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very crisp and clean finish, grassy, malty, lightly hoppy, with just the right amount of sweetness to allow this beer to seem a little dry.   Really well put together, wow!

ALLOVATE (3030) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
Produces up with what seems like a bad case of chill haze. A shrouded sunny medium gold with a frothy and loose white head of foam. Pineneedles and roughly bruised, bitter green herbs dominate the nose with underlying wafts of lychee, pear and lavender. On the palate it is assertively hopped but balanced by a wonderfully dry pilsner malt graininess and toastiness from that Carahell. Light in body with moderate carbonation that sees it move with haste across the tongue. Big bitter peak, raspy and herbaceous on the swallow leaving a lasting dryness of grain and hop. Long camphorous, nettle and pineneedle linger, quite spicy and raw. Very refreshing stuff. I loved this one. Drinks well even as it warms and showcases the wonderful Saaz hop with artistinal brilliance. A solid Pilsner! (47,3cL can, date indistinguishable on base, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp clean grain, soft musk, a bit of crackers. Medium bodied, soft grain, crackers, light and crisp. Grain, soft toast. Crackers and a touch of grain into the finish.

after much confusion, those of us who trued both the pale and the lager figured out that the woman behind the taps at the KLCC brewfest mixed up the handles for the entire day, thus everyone who had the lager thought it was too hoppy and everyone who had the pale thought it was weak and malty (to her defense the handles did look identical)... golden hue, clear, frothy white head, mild (quite subtle) hop bitters, both in the nose and the flavor, very well done lager, cheers!

Hoppiest lager I have ever had! Gold pour. Lots of hops in the aroma and in the flavor. citrus and floral. Pretty damn good.

From the pounder can. Pours a very light yellow. Light cereal aroma. Nice perfumery taste to it. A little dry and a little sweet. A really nice lager.

DietPepsican (1592) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - OCT 14, 2012
yellow with a nice sized white head. Dough and cereal grains are heavy in this one. Some grassy hops and a bit of vanilla. Clean, mildly bitter finish. Very well done.

poisoneddwarf (2569) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2012
16 oz can. This one reads 5.1% ABV. Pours cloudy yellow (looks like a kellerbier) with a large white soapy head with good retention; leaves some sheeting lacework. Aroma is corny, grainy, floral. Taste starts out lightly sweet before a crushing bitterness sets in. Definitely the most bitter pils I’ve had. There’s also an unwelcome flavor of wet dog in there. Highly carbonated, medium-full body. Crisp and refreshing, but a little flawed.
