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.

BMan1113VR (7921) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
On tap at City Beer. Appears to be a Kellerpils. Pours with a hazy, murky pale yellow body with a small white head that leaves a good ring around the glass after a while. Aromas are bready, grainy, grassy. Hop component is a bit odd (blueberries, mint, earth and fruit). Strange with a bit of a noble hop character. Hay and pils malt. Flavors are dry, bitter, grassy, clean fermentation, lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles, dry and a light fruity hop component. Crisp.

Dratf. Straw colored beer with a white head. Hay and light summer fruit aroma. Hay and summer fruit flavor wtih light malt and light mineral notes. Medium bodied. Light summer fruit lingers with light hay. Would swear the hop profile isnt all tettnang or hallertau, but could be wrong.
