COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We just released a draft-only batch called Engelberg Pilsener, named after Mt.Angel. It’s German-style: light, dry and full of hoppy flavor. We made a simple single malt (Canadian pilsener malt) and single hop (Mt. Angel-grown tettnanger) recipe using a Munich lager yeast. The finished beer came out remarkably dry so for the second batch set to be released around the third week of July we coaxed just a bit more mouthfeel and residual sugar out of it and used a different hop variety, hallertauer mittlefruh. The beer is currently on tap in the tasting room and at a handful of bars around town. When the second batch is ready both will be on hand to taste side-by-side. Editor’s note: used to be all-tettnanger, now is tettnanger and hallertauer.

(Tap) Pretty good for a pilsner! But, it’s strangely too astringent. Bummer!

"Solid pils. Earth and grass. Cereal like. Perhaps a little hoppier than usual, which is never a bad idea. Crisp and clean without being boring. Nicely done..."

Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Grassy, noble hoppy, biscuit, lightly chalky, minerally, and floral aroma. Taste is bright and clean - grass, snappy malt, crackers, light cookie, minerals, and straw with a crisp bite on the backend. Medium body with high carboantion. Really awesom pils!
