COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We just released a draft-only batch called Engelberg Pilsener, named after Mt.Angel. Its 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. Editors note: used to be all-tettnanger, now is tettnanger and hallertauer.

On tap at Evoe - Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light dough, honey, pale malt, with gentle floral hops. Taste is the same, real gentle hops with a light doughy malt, herbal hops on the finish, and a little mineral dryness. Light, effervescent body. This beer is the truth.

Dont discount this beer. Amazing pils. Drinkable with noble hop character and light cracker malts. Floral/grassy notes shine through. Dry yet balanced. I loved it.

Bright pine notes compliment bitterness of the hop. Light golden color if a bit cloudy. Crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled on tap at Upright tasting room, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of straw, grass and corn - generic. Flavour is much more inviting, with dry grassy hops, dry toasted bread and light citrus. The dry hops linger pleasantly on the finish. Very well-made pilsner.

On tap at Upright. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A sweet rich Pils nose with some fruity hops. The flavor is rich grains and light fruity and somewhat spicy hops. Nice.

I was really impressed by this. Worked perfectly with pizza. A bit of citrus hoppiness and metallic notes. Poured light yellow.

Tap at Upright - clear golden pour - a crisp, clean pils - moderate mineral notes, crisp pils malt, with light honey sweetness - flowery and fruity hallertauer - dry finish of minerals and crisp hoppiness - an awesome pils.

Tap at Upright. FRESH, is the word. Wonderful, pils flavor with great tasting hops and bitterness. Only light bodied, but thats how a pils is. Christ I like a good pils in the hot weather. Yeah, mineral is a good descriptor, so is crisp, & thirst quenching.

10oz sample on tap at Pangaea in Sacramento. The aroma on this is fairly faint with some light mineral and lemon. Not much else at first, but hints of urinal cake present themselves as this breathes a little bit. Moderately hazy yellow body--a very interesting color. Its borderline neon. There is a nice fizzy white head present. A beautiful beer. Starts with a ton of mineral flavors--too much? Some perfumey flavors follow the minerals in the middle. Finishes with some really herbal, spicy, and aggressive hop bitterness. Refreshing, and a bit different.
